On December 8 two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated bassist, producer, songwriter and celebrated studio musician Stu Brooks will release his new EP The 40HZ via Dine Alone.
Now Brooks shares a new single off the EP, “Frontline” which features Angelo Moore. Utilizing a Casio MT-40, the track draws on the dry and heavy 70’s dub sounds mashed with 80’s digital reggae. Brooks shares, “I hit up my pal Angelo to do a vocal and we took a day of tracking, a hike to the Observatory and shared a meal of Thai food and this song was basically done. But he took the track home and sent me back a choir of saxophones (and theremin). Despite his dark humor approach the lyrical content is damn serious. We had written the track during the heat and height of the Black Lives Matter protests here in LA and around the world.”
This year finds Brooks producing and co-writing for the likes of Perry Farrell and Fever333. He has also played a pivotal role in Danny Elfman’s Big Mess release and live band. The bass performance for Danny grew into executive production on more than 20 remixes. In that process, he also produced several songs featuring guest vocalists including Trent Reznor, Iggy Pop, and N8NOFACE.
