Throb!

Christan De Mesones

Bassist and composer Christian de Mesones releases "Throb!", another funk-driven, summer block party jam, and the fourth single from his new album. This fan favorite evokes the Tower of Power horn ensemble flavor and that unmistakable AWB guitar vibe.

Bassist and Composer Christian de Mesones releases the fourth single from his full-length album, "They Call Me Big New York". "Throb!" is a mid-tempo, funk-driven jam that evokes the flavor of the old school horn ensemble sound of the seventies. With a sprinkling of hot guitar riffs, this is a recipe for the block party jam of the summer. Featured is a battle royale showdown between alto sax extraordinaire Eddie Baccus, Jr. (Pieces of a Dream), and P-Funk/Maceo Parker/Chuck Brown All-Star trombonist Greg Boyer. Guitarists Jack Turner and Mike Gamble, along with drummer Carl C-Man Anderson and percussionist Sheila Shabazz, create a go-go/funk pocket too tempting to resist. Producer and co-writer Christopher Valentine lends his keyboard talents to round out the track.
