Every Friday, it is tradition at this blog to showcase a bass player/bass part that I love. Today, it's the bass part from Felix Da Housecat's "What Does It Feel Like?"
While the visuals on this particular user-made video make me want to jam ice picks into my eyes, the song and bass part are great. I love the meaty tone (for some reason I always imagine this part being played on an old Fender Mustang bass. I don't know why.) and repetitiveness of the lick - it sounds phenomenal, so why embellish it? I don't know anything about who is playing it. I'm guessing it's either some poor studio dude or a sampled line lifted from a different song. Either way, it's a little new wave and a little dance club, but 100% fun.
