I've been playing bass guitar for about 20 years now, and learned to play it most of all in the bands I've been playing and performing with. Some really successful and professional like: Groove Foundation, RixMix, but also some experimental and mostly for the love of music (instead of ever getting payed), like the fusion formation Got A Match? I'm not a school bench kinda guy, especially when concerning music, but I did study some years at the Hogeschool v/d Kunsten, Music Technology, Utrecht. I really get my kick out of funky music styles like the early funketeers (chic, parliament, motown) and the more modern styles like r&b, jazzdance, acidjazz, fusion (incognito, marcus miller, davis, sanborn), rock (living colour, mothers finest) but do not shy away from more global styles like (traditional) jazz and latin.

My GearCan't imagine anyone interested in this, but hey, thats why it's all the way at the bottom of the page. First off, my great looking Warwick Streamer/Jazzman 5 string bass in natural, oiled wood. I run it thru an Ashdown amp and a BagEnd 4x10" cabinet. For adding effects and modelling to my sound I use a Roland V-Bass processor. For synth bass parts I play a Novation KS4. At home, I like to play around on my Roland V-Drums kit. For recording I use Focusrite equipment and Cakewalk Sonar software.
