The Narcissist by Brady Watt Ft. Westside Gunn & DJ Premier Download Mp3
American producer, bass player, and bandleader, Brady Watt, has released a new single titled “The Narcissist” featuring Westside Gunn and DJ Premier.
In his career he has performed with a number of high-profile artists and ensembles and has taken part in thousands of recording sessions. He is currently based in Harlem, New York City.
Brady Watt’s music career started around age 14, playing bass in various groups in the New England punk scene. Before this he was a hip hop head, growing up on Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, and others.
His musicality evolved at a very fast rate under the tutelage of a few mentors and as he discovered and assimilated new styles such as various world musics, funk, and fusion.
He moved to Brooklyn where he began mastering his craft by playing with a who’s who of legendary musicians and artists in the city and around the world. It didn’t take long for him to rise in the ranks of New York musicians and become one of the most sought-after session bass players and performers in the city.
While carving his name into the scene as an A-List bass player Brady was soaking up knowledge from all the producers he was working with. His inclination was to keep it moving to the next level and start producing records on his own. His skills as a multi-instrumentalist (bass, keys, guitar, and drums) and a finely tuned taste for drum production and music synthesis/soundscaping made this move only natural.
Watts has a series on youtube called “Bass & Bars”, where he plays bass alongside rapper’s. Through the series he has worked and jammed with such artists including Warren G, Marc Rebillet, Melanie Fiona, Talib Kweli, Murs (rapper), Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch. Krayzie Bone, Maino, Smooth B of Nice & Smooth, among others.
