Giants of Bass – Bootsy Collins

'Funkzilla' was written in the style of the classic funk that Bootsy played with George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic collective, as well as with his own group, The Rubber Band. The track features a funk swing feel, syncopated funk grooves that are peppered with ghost notes and shakes, and of course, the use of an envelope filter pedal. As you might expect from a piece of this nature, the bass plays a very dominant role throughout.
