It Was Bound to Happen Sooner or Later

You knew this was going to happen eventually. The world’s first uBass band! And I’m proud to say that it’s the brainchild on my friend Magnus Sjöquist of PLAY UBASS fame. The band, called the The Ubass Ambassadors, have released their first song, “Mr. Z.” It’s a collaboration between Magnus and fellow uBass musician Armin Alic.

Check out the video HERE.

According to Magnus, the song began like this:

It all started with a drum loop, a chord progression and then a little, if I may say so, catchy melody. We arranged the song together adding keyboard, synths, FXs and a guitar part. The melody was then recorded on UBass (two octaves) and synth. We also overdubbed the melody with our voices!

The two met in 2013 at Frankfurt Musikmesse, Magnus notes, and a collaboration was born.

I for one am looking forward to more music from the Ubass Ambassadors.
