I will play Live Bass, Reggae Guitars, Male BGVs and be your Mix Engineer. Take your song to the next level. Those special ingredients will make your Reggae Song Great.
My name is Dayal "BassieDee" Cadien. After over thirty years in the music business as a bassist playing live, recording, and producing Reggae Music I am always amazed at how an idea develops into the finished product. The changes along the way are much like adding the right ingredients to a recipe to make a tasty meal. This is the magic of music production. My projects have been mostly for close Associates and Musicians in my circle. I have played many genres of music but my focus here is Reggae Music. Some of my favorite Musicians are Aston "Familyman" Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare, Lloyd Parkes, and internationally Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, and Verdine White, guitarists Chinna Smith and Steven "Cat" Coore. So I am here to share my talents much like the ingredients to make your Reggae Music come alive the best way I can. There are no shortcuts in my process (eg; cut and paste). Performance is live. Every Project gets special attention.
I look forward to hearing from you so we can discuss your project needs.
