Harshit Misra(aka Hashbass), a musician & producer from New Delhi, is inarguably one of the best bassists in India currently. An alumnus of the renowned Musicians’ Institute in Los Angeles, he has also served as a faculty member there. Hashbass channels diverse influences in his unique bass playing, from Yellowjackets and J Dilla to Gospel and Indian Carnatic music. His intuitive sense of rhythm and catchy grooves are evident in his work, which spans hip-hop, funk, pop and Latin jazz. He perceives music synesthetically – relating colours to sound – a skill that helps him approach music in his own unique fashion.
With all the education and experience he has today, coupled with one of the hardest work ethics around, he has set his mind to becoming a powerhouse producer.
