To me, the bass was like the heartbeat, the essence of the rhythm,
the place where the flow of any song comes from.
[ James Brown ]



Fabio Fraschini, born in 1971, began his musical journey in the early 1990s, recording his first album as a member of death metal band Desecration. Over the next few years he remained within the Italian metal scene, playing bass guitar for Enthralment, Corpsegod and D-Form. His professional career began in 2000, as the bassist for Sanremo music festival artists Marjorie Biondo and Enrico Sognato, playing on their albums and in the live performances. He later collaborated with several italian and international artists (Daniele Groff, O.R.O., Valeria Rossi, Jennifer Matthews, Arctic Plateau, Novembre, Zero Assoluto, il Volo, Marina Rei). So far he has played on more than 50 official albums. In parallel to his work as a session musician, he dedicated himself to musical production opening a studio called “Playrec”, where he worked for Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, Degenerhate, Silvia Salemi, Arctic Plateau, Stefano Panunzi, Rodolfo Maltese and Fjieri, among many others. He has also collaborated with "Chitarre" magazine, writing gear and album reviews, meeting and interviewing top musicians such as Robert Trujillo, Antonella Mazza, Dave Ellefson and Leland Sklar. He is a founding member of the cinematic pop duo Starship 9 (from the cult soundtrack label Cinevox) and testimonial/endorser of EBS amplifiers, Lakland basses and Rotosound strings.
