Album Notes
Lake Of Bass started when Tim approached Diego to supply backing music for his sold out one man show for the Festival of Perth Artrage festival. They liked it and wanted to expand their work together.

Their first EP - the sold out and critically acclaimed ‘Deep Dark Jazz’ was released in’99 the year later they wowed them at the Big Day Out, and won best band at the Fringe Festival.

Diego lives in Italy in the winter months in Australia and came back in Jan 2003 to work on the ‘Wildlife Researcher’ album. This album transcends most genres of music has sold well and been hugely acclaimed, with ‘album of the year’ claims being touted.

The album was created in their home studios enlisting a vast array of local talent from Symphony cello players to Sinatra-esque singers, the only samples on the ‘Wildlife Researcher’ album were the ones Lake Of Bass made for the release.

Lake Of Bass did a local tour playing in front of 3000 people at Breakfest - a major festival plus many other shows with a seven piece band enlisted to bring the album to life – live.

The home-made film-clips that Lake Of Bass have made have both been nominated for Western Australian film awards, being a finalists in 2004 for their quirky clip to the massive tune ‘Hit 5’.

They have licensed tracks from the ‘Wildlife Researcher’ album to Petrol Records and Triple J, plus played live for Triple J in their Perth studios – broadcast to an estimated 300,000 people in June ’04. Just about every track off the ‘Wildlife Researcher’ album has been played on local and national radio and the reviews keep coming each better that the last.

Lake of Bass also just had a feature album on Nova Sydney’s Chillzone show and have had every track (11 in total) from the ‘Wildlife Researcher’ album played on various local and national radio stations.

Album Review 'Wildlife Researcher'
Lake of bass, the live Aussie act comprised of Tim Macnamara and Diego Bosco, have floated around the 'burbs of Perth for long enough, and are now set to go large with their newly released debut LP, 'Wildlife Researcher'. Heralded by booming thunder, Lake Of Bass present their own unique blend of styles, which is hard to pinpoint; suffice to say that they step to a beat that is broken and defy genre classification with loads of deep grooves and fat funk. The lyrical content fires straight and true from Macnamara, the man responsible for the outfit's dark, poetic murmurings, with Diego supplying music and sharing production duties. Jazz fusion numbers such as 'Hit 5' and the dirty, bumpin' scorcher 'Black Sun '99, have featured heavily on community and national radio stations, consolidating the bands crossover appeal. Lake Of Bass have also played alongside the Stanton Warriors, Krafty Kuts, and Lo Fi Allstars and are already recognised party rockers, and after sampling 'Wildlife Researcher' the reason why is all to evident. Keep your eyes and ears open for these guys. BT. Ministry Magazine Australia

'Wildlife Researcher' review
Like any good beats album there's a cornucopia of styles. From the down, down tempo of the title track through to the keyboard driven 'Tanks and Flowers', then Grayling's cello emerges on 'Cassandra' before Diego Bosco adds some flamenco style acoustic on a track which is virtually beatless. 'Hype It Up'is like a cross between Morricone and Public Image Limited whilst 'Hit 5' is pure tongue in cheek for the Verve Remixed/St. Germain set. Each track has its own separate atmosphere. There's a cleverness here but it's not rubbed in and Timmy's flow is faultless, the timbre of Robbie Robertson on the Mingus tribute 'Weird Nightmare' in pith helmet and khakis. May the hunt continue. Sylvester Fox Groove Magazine.
