The band features some of London’s finest musicians, who have toured and recorded with artists as diverse as Paloma Faith, Professor Green, Plan B, Tom Jones and Grace Jones. “Jamiroquai-influenced funk” ‘slight Massive Attack territory’, the vibes of the Brand New Heavies, Incognito and all sorts” are all magazine quotes used to pinpoint Bassistry’s music.

"Bassistry’s ruminative and engaging tunes travel on agreeably cushioned grooves. A suitably palpitating foundation for restless blend of jazz and electronica"

Bassistry is the brainchild of Marcel Pusey. Over the last year, he has been working with the same team responsible for the critically acclaimed album, “What the Hell Do You Call This?”

Ivor Novello Award-winning Cassell “The Beatmaker” (Plan B, The Streets) and Emmy- nominated electronica composer Robert Logan (Taxi to The Dark Side, Grace Jones, Brian Eno) are once again co-producing. The album combines electronica dance ‘Bonobo influence tracks’ with Soul, African, Jazz, Reggae, fusion. The songs tell different stories about the human condition, and reflecting on recent times.

Bassistry’s debut self-titled album was released back in 1996 on German label Okapi Records. This self- produced, jazz-funk introduction was largely instrumental, influenced very much by the M-Base movement.

In 2005, Pusey emerged with a new Bassistry line-up, inspired by jam sessions in South London’s renowned music venue, The Bedford. Marcel was astounded by the level of talent that turned up at the sessions on a weekly basis, inspiring him to gather together some of that talent together and record ‘In Time,’ a vocal-led jazz-soul album, inspired by the likes of the Brand New Heavies, though a little grittier. Tracks on ‘In Time’ have featured in countless TV programmes around the world.

Ronnie Scott’s, Jazz Café, Dingwalls, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, Bassistry, have played many of the great London venues. Now playing Pizza Express ‘live’ they will take you through a range of emotions.
