Count Bass D and Baltimore producer/MC DJ Pocket rock the low-fi visuals. Normally this would be a problem but, hey, it’s Count Bass D. Taken from the “street album” In the Loop, which you can download here.

Have you ever seen Count Bass D live? The man is all over the place, punching keys on the sampler like it’s a piano, then turning around and busting a rhyme you can hear clear as day. He’s got head-knocking beats, too, as anyone who’s heard Dwight Spitz and MF Doom’s "Pot Holderz" will confirm.
Now you can experience the Count yourself when he hits your town … or a town that may be close to you. He’s touring in support of Act Your Waist Size, which came out last October on Fat Beats. Maspyke members Tableek & DJ Roddy Rod and punchline rapper Verbal Kent (who’s supporting his recent album Move with the Walls) will join him. The entire shebang, titled the SnoRock Rebel Tour, is sponsored by auto manufacturer/marketing whiz Scion.
Enterprising heads with promo/venue connects can reach out to Count Bass D, too. While the tour’s already in progress, he’s looking to add dates. Check out the booking information track in his MySpace standalone player. "If I mess with you, you want a show, you gotta send my deposit!"
