PopOff #14 – We Want The Funk … Gotta Have That Funk!

PopOff! is an “anything goes” musical show hosted by Bay Area DJ Bear. Sometimes it’s a theme, sometimes it’s a big ol’ birthday shout out tribute show to a specific artist(s). Shows occur on Mondays with the occasional Thursday Bonus Beats. Every episode is a unique sonic road trip through the multitudes of genres, eras, and musicians in recorded music. So if you have an open mind for musical exploration beyond mainstream radio programming climb into the PopOff! Bubble and let’s get to it!!

On part two of my series exploring the electric bass in music we see how the music of the 60 evolved into heavier and funkier sounds with the help of the bass’s partner in crime, the bass amp. Plus a plethora of even MORE iconic bass lines and players.
