MODERN DAY BABYLON – Studio Update 2 – Bass Tracking

Last week we brought you the drum update for Modern Day Babylon, the Czech Republic’s premier instrumental djent trio. This week we are bringing you an exclusive of their update #2 – BASS!

21 year old Premysl Kuncincky can be seen in this video jamming (among others) the new Ibanez SRFF805 bass which is Ibanez’ first production multiscale/fanned fret offering. This is my first time hearing it in action (played it for a hot minute at NAMM), and it’s looking like my hopes might be realized – that it sounds as good as I imagine it will. Hard to tell through the camera mic, but we’ll hear in the finished product on their new EP The Ocean Atlas and hopefully live at this year’s Euroblast Festival, which is sponsored by none other than yours truly!

Young master Premysl is clearly a notable exception to Glenn Fricker’s Rule #2, and can be seen cleanly and effectively utilizing a plethora of groovy bass techniques. So buckle up and get down with the low down on MDB’s bass recording:

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
