David Dyson | “Unleashed”

 

David Dyson
“Unleashed”
www.myspace.com/daviddysonFrom the New Kids on the Block to Me’Shell N’degeocello, Dyson is a bona-fide force in the bass world (in my opinion, a criminally lesser known name to many, tho.  Every bass player should be well aware of David Dyson).  I had the pleasure of meeting Dave through a mutual friend (and killer bassist Steve Jenkins) at a NAMM show a few years back and am happy to report that he’s also a VERY cool guy.  Do a search on youtube or visit his myspace page and you’ll find a plethora of wonderful videos showing us all what the pocket is really about.  I was very excited to hear a mix of his upcoming CD “Unleashed!” and I wasn’t disappointed in the least!

Right from the get-go, we are hit square in the jaw with David’s deep pocket and Funky-as-it-gets grooves.  Part of David’s unique voice comes from his unusual right hand technique (watch the Vid’s or ask him yourself via this website!).  He has really captured a unique sound and perfect balance of the rhythmic booty factor and melodic statement.

While the production and instrumentation is a little Marcus-esque, the playing and over-all statement is all David.  Beautiful melodies, nice compositions and some nasty pocket.  I will be listening to this album repeatedly just to take a lesson in groove from the master.  Some of the best bass lines I’ve heard in a long time!  Dyson very well may be the funkiest dude around, but he’s also very much got something to say here and I suggest you take a listen!
