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.
