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.
