Daniel Malek on SoundBetter

Professional Recording and Touring Bass Player

I am a London based session bass player. I've been performing since 2010 with various artists, bands and orchestra, all across Europe and the UK scene. Having joined the UK music scene in 2013, I achieved skills in different genres such as Neo soul, Blues, Pop, Rock, Country, Jazz and more.

I personally enjoy working with artists and producers who are trying to bring their songs to life with live bass, whether it be simple pocket, melodic, or Motown style playing. I focus on getting the right sound for a song and then create a bass line that supports the artist's vision.

Interview with Daniel Malek

  1. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  2. A: What kind of style/genre is the song? When is the deadline? Did you have any ideas for the bass line already?

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: I listen to the song first to get an idea of the vibe and feeling. On the second time through I will hum/sing the bass line through the song after that I go into recording and send the rough bass recording to the client for feedback. After that either adjusting to the clients comments or polishing the original idea to be used in the record.
