Over the course of like, four hours, the supremely funky and inconceivably talented Felix Pastorius (Hipster Assassins, Jeff Coffin Mu'tet, Yellowjackets, Fences) laid the low line down (and more) for 5 of the 10 songs on BACKSTAGE.

There were a handful of days when I felt the progress of BACKSTAGE surge forward; this stands out among those days.

RICOCHET

I don’t really do slap bass.

BEHIND THE SCENES LIVE @ LEFTFIELD

Before Felix got a hold of it, "Behind the Scenes" was just a chaotic landscape of drums and weird noises. The bass line anchored the track, tying all the elements together to create an apocalyptic anthem.
