Ida Nielsen Releases “02022020”

Ida Nielsen: 02022020Bassist Ida Nielsen may be known for her in-your-face funk, but she’s taking another direction on her new album, 02022020. The release was inspired by the date February 2, 2020, and it’s numerical values.

“I thought this was such a cool date that I wanted to do something else so I made a chill album,” she says. “I will release another funk album later this year but this is something different from me. I am not slapping a single note on this album, but -fear not -there is still plenty of bass on it [with] lots of soft grooves, chord melodies, and bass solos.”

Nielsen uses her previous solo album, Turnitiup, as a jumping-off point with spin-offs of songs from that release. She also got several guests for the recording including Aljosha, Phong Le, Pat Dorcean, Mika Vandborg, and Kuku Agami.

02022020 is available now for download via iTunes and Amazon MP3. Nielsen will be on tour this spring throughout Europe with her band The Funkbots.
