Another awesome project with Antonio. I asked him to replay a bassline from an existing song, and in the process it kind of morphed into something new and even better than what I was asking for. Antonio puts in the work and makes sure his clients are happy. Hire this man!
Antonio just turned around the funkiest bassline I could never have even imagined myself in less than 12 hours. Wow! Hire this man now!
Great chops, fantastic sound, and quick turnaround. Antonio will definitely be my go-to bassist going forward.
