​​BASShe ARTMANtra  is a unique and unusual sound drawing on the music of London life, from Dudley Phillips, a bassist/composer with years of experience performing internationally at the highest level with artists such as : Bill Withers : JuneTabor : Womack + Womack : Orphy Robinson : Marc Almond : Charlie Wood : Mark Knopfler :  Tom Scott :     Robert Wyatt : Cedar Walton : Loreena McKennitt : Yazz Ahmed : Billy Cobham : Huw Warren​ : Anja Garbarek: Mary Coughlan : Will Gregory : Amy Winehouse and   Susheela  -Raman  -   ​Every sound, texture and loop is created from the bass, excepting only  handclaps  and vocals, ​sung by BASSheARTMANtra.
       Much of the music is original composition, with songs inspired by the varied musical traditions of the UK and elsewhere. Re-interpetations of covers include fragments of King Crimson , Amy Winehouse, Coldplay , Hermeto and Dave Brubeck. The album also features an English ​hornpipe, a nursery rhyme and a song inspired by the influential   Bowie guitarist Mick Ronson.
       Live drums are played on five tracks of the album by the remarkable  Ian Thomas  
'It's a unique atmosphere.I enjoyed it's stripped down sound.'
