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

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
