Pleasure your Track with a dope Bassline that comes with Meaning, Love & Soul!

Welcome to the groove hub where your tracks gain life through Basslines infused with the essence of HipHop, Beats, Neo-Soul, and Funk. Whether you crave the snug fit of an "in the Pocket" rhythm or the raw edge of a Dilla Sample, I tailor the low-end to resonate with your artistic vision.

With years of laying down Basslines for Beatproducers, HipHop Artists and Labels, my collaboration with a multitude of diverse Artists has enriched a plethora of tracks with soulful, human-feel bass. My approach is inspired by the emotive imperfections in Dilla's samples, ensuring every note I play tells a story.

A proud alumnus of the International Music College Freiburg (GER), I honed my craft in Jazz & Popular Music with a focus on E-Bass. While a scholarship at Berklee College beckoned, I chose the invaluable lessons learned touring with diverse artists and engaging in studio sessions for over 15 years.

In appreciation of my clients' loyalty, I offer an exclusive "Jam-Take" alongside the Main-Take. This bonus material serves as a versatile sample library, providing you with unique fills, transitions, and out-of-the-box elements to elevate your track.

Let's Amplify Your Music!

Connect with me to enrich your music's foundation with a bassline that's not just heard but felt. Together, let's create a low-end that carries the weight of emotion and the signature of authenticity.

    Great first collaboration Ben!
    Done very quickly with a great feel for groove and sound. Especially since the song was very demanding with a very strict template.
    Thanks for the great work Ben and I will get back to you very soon!
    Cheers!
