RSR449 – Dominique Sanders – Jazz Bass Player Hip Hop Producer & Beat Maker in LA

A hit recording might only be 2.5 min in 13.8 billion years of the universe! Dom talked about playing bass for the Queen of England & Obama, the history of KC jazz, learning to make beats, the power of publishing, and 5 reasons to use Ableton Live.

My guest today is Dominique Sanders, an accomplished producer and composer from Kansas City Missouri. By age 16, he had performed for the Queen of England and established himself as a mainstay in the Kansas City music scene. During one of his many shows in the area, Dom was discovered by Tech9, which started a writing/producing partnership that continues to this day. Dominique currently resides in Los Angeles California and is a published songwriter and producer at prescription songs

Notable works include many of Tech9’s #1 Billboard chart debuts, and collaborations with Nipsey Hussle, James Fauntleroy, Jidenna, Janelle Monea, The Game, Jay Prince, Snoop Dogg, and Boyz II Men, Herbie Hancok, Robert Glasper, Wiz Kalifa, Chance the rapper, and many more.
