Flabba Holt: Behind My Greatest Bass Lines

As one of the most prolific bassists in reggae, Flabba Holt, has created some incredibly hypnotic bass lines. That’s how I got stuck on this video, which is equally hypnotic.

Holt sat down with I Never Knew TV to give the background to some of the big hits he played and produced: “Big Ship” by Freddie McGregor, “Front Door” by Gregory Isaacs, “Gun Man” by Michael Prophet, and more.

Holt’s passion and excitement for the music is clear, although his dialect is not. The video also gives a close-up view of how he plays, so grab your bass to get your groove on.
