Records pro electric or double bass, plenty of sounds and styles.
I am a professional musician based in Sweden with long experience in the music world as a touring and session musician and as a member of the band Hoffmaestro. I play and record both electric and upright basses remotely with many sounds and styles to choose from. I like to be creative and add my flavour to parts.

Interview with Hampus Lundgren
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording remotely or in studio for hiphop, pop/rock or house clients or commercials.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sometimes mixing is more about arrangement and things being right rhythmically. Sometimes the "wrong" or "ugly" thing can be the magic ingredient that makes something special.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Wide variety of rock/pop, hiphop, rnb, jazz, funk.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Improvising basslines.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Groove, vibe, and in case it is called for, creativity.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually a client sends me a song or beat in some stage of the process and I record a couple of different suggestions for a bass track. If the client likes it I record a couple of extra variations after getting feedback. Clients usually find it helpful to have different levels of "busyness" to chose from or edit between.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Lots of electric basses, electric and acoustic guitars, upright bass, grand piano, Microkorg XL synth, Apogee interface, Neuman TLM 102 mic, Orange AD200 bass amp and 410 cab.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Thundercat, Anderson Paak, Vulfpeck, BadBadNotGood.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Paul Mccartney because he is the best songwriter of all time.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A mix between rock, soul, and funk on electric. On upright, jazz naturally!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Solo project Hollywood Road. I sing and play everything!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Solo project Hollywood Road, Hoffmaestro, freelance jazz stuff.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. If it sounds good, it is good is my motto for gear. Obviously the look is most important though!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I try to put the music before everything else.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The variety of different songs and musicians.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you play simpler or more complex and make it sound musical? Of course!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That musicians have huge egos and are sensitive to criticism! They rarely do, at least the good ones.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: In what stage do you view the production to be in? Do you have a clear idea of what you want or do you want me to try to do my thing? Do you have an idea for a sound or do you want me to record with what I think is most appropriate for the song?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don´t be afraid to ask! Music is a fun journey!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Fender Precision bass or Yamaha BB, a good bass amp, a nice acoustic guitar, my upright, and a piano.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I´ve been playing since I was 14, professionally since about 19, and studied music at several schools such as the music conservatory of Copenhagen. Since about 2006 I've been a member of the very successful band Hoffmaestro.
