Rami Lakkis & Gene Lake: Insomnia

Shapeshifter Lab is a great venue in Brooklyn that hosts innovative artists to explore musical boundaries, and since it’s co-owned by Matt Garrison, you can bet that it’s very bass-friendly.

Here’s a great clip of bassist Rami Lakkis with drummer Gene Lake performing “Insomnia” at Shapeshifter last year. The song is an original composition by Lakkis that fuses electronica and live playing to create a rich sonic atmosphere.

Lakkis employs impeccable fingerpicking and note choices to create his unique voice on the bass. All bass players can all appreciate Lake’s high-energy drumming, too.
