In Conversation with Freekbass - What the Funk?

September 12, 2016

About This Episode

In today’s podcast we chat to Freekbass about spreading the gospel of funk.

Having cranked out some killer b-lines on his latest solo album, Freekbass is fast becoming recognised as one of the most iconic bass players in modern funk. He is also the first to admit that he is something of a pedalhead, using effects to add new dimensions to his bass sound. 'It's verging on obsession,' he laughs. 'But I think I have it under control.' Freekbass has always had a pretty unconventional bass sound, and in turn has established the bass as an instrument that’s capable of driving the band and commanding the song, rather than merely supporting it. His exploits with Bootsy Collins have also raised his profile. It would seem that the future of funk bass playing is in safe hands.

What To Do Next

As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…

… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
