Count Bass D Wants You To ACT YOUR WAIST SIZE

Count Bass D Wants You To Act Your
Waist Size

Nashville rapper and
multi-instrumentalist continues to push boundaries of hip-hop

 

(Brooklyn,
NY September 25th, 2006) Dwight Farrell, aka Count Bass D
, will release his fourth full-length album on FatBeats
Records. Entitled Act Your Waist Size, the album is filled with 20 genre-defying tracks that
serve as further proof that the Count has never been one to linger within
the
confines of convention in the cut-and-dry music industry.

 

On
Act Your Waist Size
, Count
Bass D once again demonstrates his unique ability to showcase various styles in
a hip-hop context. In addition to his trademark boom-bap and instrumental
tracks, he reinterprets two 19th century standards, sings a self-penned ballad,
and offers his version of the southern sound. Lead single “Junkies
(Hanging Out At The Store)” rides on a laid back southern bass line while
new-wave keyboards percolate over the top. Second single “Internationally
Known” comes in at just under 2 minutes and features Count flowing over a
jazzy glissando loop backed by toy-like drums. Given the success of artists
like Outkast and Gnarls Barkley, it’s clear that creativity from a rap artist
can be embraced by a larger audience, but you won’t find Count Bass D worrying about
such trends. No, he’s busy just being one of many musicians trying to make it
in Music City USA, and he’s doing it his way.

 

Act Your Waist Size will be released nationally on FatBeats Records on October
17th.
