Pleasure your Track with a dope Bassline that comes with Meaning, Love & Soul! Specialized in HipHop, Beats, Neo-Soul, Funk Based on your preferences the results can sound either "in the Pocket" or like a Dilla Sample (or a combination)

Hi there,

i am offering to write and play a meaningful Bassline for your Track. I got plenty of Experience in recording Basslines for Beatproducers, HipHop Artists and Labels. I've been working with the Label Dopeshit Records and the Producer AOS° laying down Basslines for many Artists.

I like to have Soul, Love and Human Feelings in my Work, so you can tell that it is played by a real person.
Like the approach how Dilla used his samples - of course, they are not perfectly on the grid or sometimes a little bit off tuning, but you always can hear the emotions in there. This has been a huge Inspiration for me and in the end that makes it being „dope“.

I got a degree in Jazz- & Popular Music (Main Instrument E-Bass) at International Music College Freiburg (GER). Earned a Scholarship at Berklee College, but decided against it and learn some real Stuff on the Road touring with many different Artists and doing Studio Jobs for 15 Years now.

My Special:
Because of the heavy use of my past Clients, i'd like to include an additional "Jam-Take" to the Main-Take. This can be used as a small Sample Library (e.g. add different Fills, Transitions or more out-of-the-box stuff).

Looking forward to enhance the Low-End of your Track <3

    What a great experience! Ben was incredibly fast and he knew exactly what I was looking for and elevated my track with his groove and ideas. He knows how to make his instrument sound great and where to add nuances in an already existing track.
    I wish every experience on performance on here was as good as his. Top talent!

  32. Review by Grischa Kursawe | Lobos Audio

    Ben is not only a really down to earth and reliable guy but also the best session bass player I know. His groove and abillity to adapt to different genres is unique. It has always been a pleasure to work with Ben and I can highly recommend his services if you are looking for a professional bass player who will blow your mind off.

  33. Review by David Walter
    by David Walter

    Always a great pleasure to work with Ben. He is a fantastic live musician, which makes him see things in a composition, that gives it that little bit of cherry on the cake chocolate cream topping it needs. He puts soul, love and feeling in each song (or sound) and it will still strip the flash off your bones ...if its supposed to.

    Ben is a lot more than just an awesome bass player. He is a creative mastermind who is continuously looking for new challenges beyond the borders of conventional songwriting and who couldn't be more versatile. I'm very glad I had the chance to work with him on a number of projects and his great attitude towards music as an art form was always truly inspiring.

    Ben wrote the music for 2 of my film projects. He's a fantastic bass player, but can also take care of a whole composition. I highly recommend this guy!

    Great guy! A very musical and groovy bass player. He has a broad range and is quite flexible. He played on a production of mine, took every direction and nailed it. Apart from that he came up with some pretty good shit.
