About This Blog

I am a musician living in Cape Town, South Africa and this blog is intended to document various musical projects I'm working on ... mostly after the fact, when I remember.

Unless otherwise stated the bass line (and quite often the mix) is my work.

One new and one oldish tune

Two more collaboration tunes for you.

The first is an oldish one Arryth
This is a rock song that unfortunately (In My Opinion) seems to have been forgotten about, or dropped, or something, but anyways I really enjoyed playing on it and am quite proud of the bass line I came up with (hence the reason it's up here) and I also really like the vocal performance - all in all I actually dig this tune a lot.

Next up is something completely different to the above,
No Name Bossa is a smooth as silk latin jazz thing.
This tune really needs an upright (double) bass to do it justice, which I don't unfortunately have, so I did the best I could on my fretless, the other collaborators seem to like it anyways so here it is.

I'm not as familiar as I'd like to be regarding latin rhythms, but hearing the above I couldn't resist. This I find is the beauty about collaborating you can try stuff out and get knowledgeable feedback and crits pretty quickly, that is apart from the fun of making music, being able to change genre at will and "meeting" other musicians online.

I should mention this on all the posts I guess, but most of the tunes I post here are work in progress and not yet considered finished - unless stated otherwise

Passing Passion - another collaboration

Hmm, I seem to be getting a bit more busy on this blog - guess it's all well and good.
Anyways, I got myself involved in another collaboration on Kompoz called Passing Passion.

This is a bit of a pop/funk/jazz tune a la Incognito
Anyways here's how the tune stands ATM

Hope you enjoy
