  1. Review by Stephan F.

    Look no further for Hip Hop or RnB bassist. Issac did an amazing job recording bass on my track. First take he sent me absolutely nailed it. Very musical, precise and with great tone. He was also very friendly and prompt responding to messages. Highly Recommended!

  2. Review by Blake G

    Look no further! Isaac is super quick to respond, friendly, professional, and SHREDS at bass! I had a track that I was CLUELESS about bass on, he killed it in no problem, same day! He even sent alternate versions to work with. Isaac is your bass player for sure!

    Isaac’s playing is so accurate and with great feel. He was so easy to work with - really listened to what I was after and made sure we were talking on the same lines. He was so prompt to deliver too. Really recommend him.
