Alissia Benveniste: Get Down

One of our favorite musical discoveries this year was Alissia Benveniste, a bassist and bandleader who is reviving the classic funk style with catchy hooks, uplifting lyrics, and awesome bass lines. She just sent us her latest video, and it’s got the same great recipe.

“Get Down” is bursting with energy with an even larger ensemble than her previous songs. Benveniste gets a thick, snarly bass tone with equal parts overdrive and envelope filter to really lay down the groove’s foundation.

Get ready to dance.

    I truly appreciate NT for posting these daily videos. You’ve turned me on to quite a few killer cats. And of course Alissia is one of those killer cats! Her music & groove is always stellar. Just awesome bass tone too. She’s just amazingly badass!

    Is she still at Berklee? If so, they do a great job producing videos. Although she does not have his charisma, I think Alicia might have some success with the Bruno Mars formula.

  12. That would be a whole lotta groovin’ going on…Nice work, Alissia & company ! ?
