    Although not a musician myself, I love the sound of the double bass more than any other instrument. I am currently seeking modern albums and artists (1996 onwards) that contain big fat juicy basslines created with a double bass (good examples being Micatone, Cinematic Orchestra, Red Snapper etc, where the bass is up high in the mix). I seem to have hit a brick wall and have fortunately stumbled across this site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Big Fat Juicy means diff things to diff people - I'm guessing you're not looking for Jazz records??? why 1996-onward?

    When I think Big Fat Juicy Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy, I think of older recordings - like the sound of a KAY with gut strings.

    Can you be more specific?

    Put your eyebrow down and stop being so suspicious ;) . I'm just looking for your recommendations of modern music albums with huge double bass basslines that I can purchase and listen to :eek:. I found this site through a Google search and thought it/you could be of use. I have no clue of lifting and sampling. I'm not a musician, as I prefaced my post.

    Frankly, no. again, I'm just a layman. I'm just looking for modern albums. I understand that big, fat & juicy means diff things for diff folks, so interpret that how you will (the artists I mentioned are the best examples I could think of). It just seems that there is no way of searching the internet for this kind of music. So I thought a site dedicated to the bass (and with its own db forum) might be a good start :eek: .
