Welcome to Online Bass Player – the #1 place on the internet for remote bass recording sessions

As featured on…

Ever wanted a professionally recorded bass line on your music with minimum fuss and expense? Online Bass Player provides the solution.

Hi, my name is Dan Hawkins and I record bass guitar and upright bass remotely for musicians around the world. I record bass online for both amateur and semi-pro musicians to top professional composers, producers and big artists. An online (or ‘remote’) session removes the hassle and expense of hiring studio time as well as an engineer and associated costs. The turnaround is quick and the price very competitive. I want to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible which is why I offer the best guarantee you’ll see in the Online Session industry: you don’t pay until you are happy (see the bottom of this page for more details).

You send me a guide track and any instructions and I record a bass line and send it to you over the internet from my studio in London.

I absolutely love recording and playing bass and consider it the highest honour to be asked to play on your music and I give it 100% every time. It’s a true collaboration and a wonderful opportunity to make amazing music over the internet. You will find loads more information on this site on my bass gear, how to book me as well as tracks I’ve played bass on. So have a browse or just get in contact for more info.

Here’s a 6-minute showreel of 15 tracks I’ve played bass recorded remotely from my studio. The music ranges from dance to pop, hip hop, film, jazz, funk and metal. I’ve been playing bass for 26 years and have studied most contemporary styles of music and love it all! The full credited tracks can be heard here.

When we were struggling to find a bass player to record with us in the short time we had, Dan came along and spectacularly picked up the tracks we needed to record. He is very dedicated and professional and did not stop until the tracks were exactly where we wanted them to be! The bass-lines he did for us in particular Hollow and Tomorrow were perfect and beyond our expectations. Top bloke as well!

Dan has an incredible ability to know what each song needs, and how to deliver it. He made every track he touched, shine. A fantastic talent and a great guy to work with – a definite go-to man.

Thanks so much for your work on all of the three tracks, I am really happy with them and it’s been really great working with you!
