Full time Berlin Based Bassist. Specialized in laid back groovy lines.
I'm a full time session bassist living in Berlin. I have a lot of experience recording in studios. With my selection of analog (pre-)amps, effects, mics and good quality instruments, I provide high quality bass and synth tracks from my studio in Berlin.
For each recording I provide 3 takes. The 1st being the basic 'pocket'-feel, the 2nd a version with some more variations, and as 3rd a version with some experimentation in it.
I provide you with both the raw file, to mix and edit to your liking and a processed file which already contains: EQ, compression and other effects deemed necessary by me.
Laid-back Grooves, Pop, (Neo-)Soul, R&B, Rock, Jazz, Funk, Ska, Singer-Songwriter, Folk
Able to play with or without click-track
I can read notes, chord symbols, midi tracks, or learn by hearing.
If you don't have your bass line or arrangement ready, I can help you to create these.

1 ReviewsEndorse Jelmer de Haan
I've had the pleasure of working with Jelmer de Haan on several projects in the past couple of years - both in the studio and on stage - and I'm still always baffled by his professionalism and his competence. Jelmer is a complete musician, full of experience, master of his trade and extremely reliable. I believe him to have a perfect balance in bringing his own initiative and skills to a project, while staying well on track and delivering more than satisfactory results tailored to the brief. 1000% recommend.
