Grammy winner. Deep pocket bass,drums and keys. The bass part often determines the overall feel and vibe of a song, and a human performing that part adds something that a sample often can't quite get to. I have the experience and skill set to take your song and project to the next level. You owe it to yourself and your music to bring the very best.

Your piece of music needs some low end to make it feel grounded and supported. Maybe that means a 70's funky bass hook, maybe a wall of synthetic fuzz or a bowed double bass. I specialize in popular bass playing and programming and can help you choose the right kind of lower frequency styling for your track or song.
