Today I was in the studio to work on mastering another one of Chris Ekral’s hit wonders.
This one is called “I voted leave”.
Conjuring images of what’s been happening in the EU, with the UK and Europe voting on different issues.
I guess Chris wanted to make a tune out of this jumble mumble, that’s all part of voting, in a country.
So, I mastered the tune using IK-Multimedia’s T-Racks Standard edition, which I have been using for along time now. As well as sound forge and the Waves L2.
I also worked on sending my band, #slingshotmillion2’s main singer Yui the backing tracks only for her peripheral use.
That, and some nice coffee. Well, that’s what has been going down at the studios these days.
Here is the latest & greatest song from Slingshotmillion that was recorded here just recently.
Our female singer posted it on youtube and it is here that you can watch it.
The song is called Kawaranai mono.
The link is here.
It is part and parcel of the new songs we have been working on here at our studio.
All recorded, mixed and mastered here at our studio.
Today I woke up at 7:30. Even though my body clock needs some sleep from the other night of only sleeping 6 hours.
I usually sleep around 9-10 hours. But I guess the sleep that I’ve been getting recently was a buffer to protect me from the recent early bird days.
And today was one of those days. So, I went downstairs, after a shave and getting dressed, made myself a cup of coffee, and some bread and eggs. Then afterwards started to record some guitar parts for Chris Ekral. His name is actually Chris Larke. But recently he has been using Ekral as his band name.
He will be using our label after these songs are mastered and ready to be published.
So as far as recording goes, I recorded some bass guitar as well as changed some levels, which is known as mixing.
Also re-recorded some guitar parts. And then wrote rap lyrics for my band.
There will be a DJ from Nagoya coming over this month, as far as I know. As well as a guitar player with his singer coming here in August to record.
So stay tuned for more fun & blissful news!
Over and out!
This is the link to a radio recording we did recently.
They (The Trashman’s) are a band that Slingshotmillion have performed live with over the years, and they just recently graced us with their presence here at our stillbliss factory.
This is all in Japanese so if you don’t speak or understand Japanese its not funny. But if you do, it’s light entertainment.
Anyways. That’s what we’ve been up to recently as well.
Today I woke up early around 6:00. And felt great!
We are getting closer to finishing up the recording of Slingshotmillion 2’s songs.
Mixing and then mastering will be coming along real soon.
I will be playing the lead guitar at Shimokitazawa on the 17th at Rokudemonaiyori this month, so I need to practice guitar so I can be up to par with the band.
Pumped up with Coffee and a good breakfasst of Bacon and eggs and coffee.
Things sure are looking up for my studio and band.
If all goes well, I will practice in the next coming days, so I can be up to par like I already said.
Coffee sure can get you going, so can a good night’s sleep.
I went to sleep early last night, so I got a good head start on the day. It’s only 10:13 as of this writing. And I have nothing to do for the next few days, other than mastering and recording stuff.
Anyways I will soon be mastering the three tracks that we recorded and mixed soon in the coming days or hours.
I will post a link to them, once they are published on Youtube.
And then all Slingshotmillion fans will know what to sing to before we perform these songs on the 17th.
It has been a grueling past few days of nonstop recording for the band slingshotmillion. We recorded vocals, guitars, screaming, you name it! We are almost getting close to the bands live event where yours truly will be performing in Tokyo on the 17th. There’s not so much time, so I do hope that my band members reply soon, so I can start mastering the three songs we recorded.
Overall, much fun was had, and we will keep you updated with news from the studio.
Oh, and we also have been mixing a new version of Leboyfriend from Chris Larke.
He sent us Stems from England, and we are trying our best to get the song the way HE wants it! We do wish the best for Chris and Slingshotmillion2.
OK Over and out. Stay cool peeps! In this hot weather. Stay cool.
