This is the second solo album of Ida Nielsen (aka Bassida) -currently the bassplayer of NPG.
The style is serious funk!! with a lot of bass in it!!
We have oldschool funk mixed with hiphop and Nusoul. Add to this a handful of beautiful pop inspired ballads. The result? Simple, sexy and cool tunes reaching beyond the passionate, limited fan base of the funk bass.
“Sometimes A Girl Needs Some Sugar Too” is an album of depth and distinct sound that establishes Ida Nielsen as a songwriter as well as a bass player and producer. Each track carries its own composition. Each track has its own attitude and feel. And yet, the album is a perfectly united sound piece paying tribute to funk. And you can’t fake the funk. This is authenticity, improvisation and intensity stripped down and ready to party.
And Ida has invited her friends along! Performing on the album is a musically hard hitting cocktail high on creativity counting fine names such as:
Shelby J (from the NPG), Yassin Nanga (Zap Mama), Patrick Dorcean (Zap Mama), Simon Bekker, Gullmai Salling Friis and Jacob Elvstrøm among others.’
And yes. Sometimes a girl do need some sugar too. Especially when you can sweeten up your life with compelling cool funk shaken and stirred with full-bodied ear hangers and topped with Ida’s sexy, teasing voice.
