Interview with Julian Loaiza
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think people underestimate the potential there is in bass lines. I think today lots of guys are looking at the bass as a solo instrument, which is very cool, but I think they are forgetting all the interesting ways there are to add to a song as a supporting instrument.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been playing bass for 10 years now. I started in highschool and thinks just started happening. From school bands to college, to working in clubs to a few international tours.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1 Precision bass. 2 Precision bass. 3 Precision bass. 4 Precision bass. 5 Precision bass.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I always like to listen to a few reference songs, that way I can better know what they are looking for. For me this approach works better than academic concepts.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: In my opinion, my strongest skill is to tailor a bass line to every song. I like to to look for inspiring ways to play, from picking, palm-muting, register, fills, all I can do to make each bass line as unique and musical as possible.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now I am doing session work and playing concerts in my area.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do is commercial music, where I'm asked to record a preconceived bassline or to create one on the spot always looking after the intention of the song.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Daniel Uribe, great musician and great guy to work with, highly recommend him.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The artists that inspire me the most are The Beatles, The Doors, Tame Impala, Donny Hathaway, Brad Mehldau, Jungle, Danger Mouse, Robert Glasper, Fania All Stars just to name a few. I would say my favorite bass players are: Willie Weeks, Larry Grenadier, Pino Palladino, Paul Mcartney, Charles Mingus, Salvador Cuevas among others.
