Hi, I'm Pete. A Dutch bass player specialised in soul & funk, afrobeat, pop & other danceable bass grooves. It's addictive to see what a good groove can result in: lots and lots of dancing people. My goal is to help you to make your song as danceable as possible.

I have specialised my playing in creating catchy, creative grooves with a funky timing.

My main focus goes out to soul & funk, afrobeat, pop & R&B-style playing. Stuff that makes you want to dance. I play both fingerstyle and with a plectrum and am available for both creative and existing parts. Please be very clear in what you have in mind so I can decide whether I can deliver the groove you are hearing in your head. I'll always be straight whether I can deliver or will refer you to a specialist.

About my setup:
Recording: iMac i7 21,5'' with Logic Pro X and Apogee Duet.
Amps: Glockenklang Steamhammer, MarkBass Little Mark III, Orange TH30.
Cabinets: Glockenklang 1x15'' + 2x10''. Zilla 1x12''.
Guitars: My 4-string Musicman Cutlass provides P-style tones, cutting through the mix. The Hofner 187 (4-string), loaded with flatwounds, provides everything in the range of classic soul to pounding lows. I also own a Fender Stratocaster (USA) and a custom made Bo-El MC6.
Pedals: among others, I own a Moog Drive, Zvex Mastotron, MXR Octaver, MXR Envelope filter and a Sadowsky Bass Preamp.

About me:
I have played >200 liveshows and worked on numerous studio recordings and commercials. Next to my bass playing I'm the executive producer at Good Sounds, Amsterdam. We are a music production agency specialising in creating music & sound for brands and movies.
