Count Bass D
The Count crafts wholly original hip-hop grooves with the freedom afforded only to accomplished musicians who play all their own instruments. Besides rocking the cover off the mic with bountiful metaphors and a boldly confident delivery, he lays down live drum tracks that flip and evolve in ways breakbeats and drum-machines can't duplicate. His studio duties don't end there: spacious basslines, nimble guitar riffs, and bubbling keyboards are also borne from his musical repertoire and nourished to maturity by his manipulation of the mixing boards. Bass-D's one-man hip-hop experience matches the might and presence of an entire band.
