So Chris From the UK, sent me some stems for mixing of his two songs that we have on our studio DAW.
They are both Comical, songs based around UK culture I guess?
He sent me two stems, one vocal, for “Chris Hansen” And one Drum Loop for “Brexit Wonderland”. I think its the other way around, but thats fine, we are just talking about two song”s stems, that were run through the BLA 173 And FMR AUDIO PBC6A.
Look forward to hearing these songs soon on digital download formats soon!
You gotta give it to him! He does look pretty fit? No?!
So, Skip Taylor came today.
He recorded vocals.
Bass, and brought over an mp3 to put into a track.
We worked on reworking vocals for a number called, “Breakfast Is A Sin”.
It was quite poppy!
We used the BLA 173, through the FMR audio PBC6A.
We used our ever so trusty AKGC214.
Here is the picture of Skip before the session. With our trusty microphone.
We hope you like our blog!
We hope you have a good ending to the year!
And we wish you all the best!
From our family to yours!
May it be a wonderful and blissful future!
So, Today we mastered a track for Chris, in the UK.
The song was called, “Hara Hetta”. Meaning, “I’m hungry”! In Japanese.
It was a short diddy, that has the same tune as a kids tune.
Chris has worked with kids for a while as a teacher. So, only understandable that he relates to kids as he does with his tunes.
Also very soon, “Stinky Little Poo” by none other than Mr. Clarkey Sings. Will be out on New years day!
Under our home grown label here in Japan, Kangawa Ken, Sagamihara shi- Stillbliss Records.
Stay tuned on this blog for more Blissful news!
Happy holidays! And Merry Christmas!
So, Today Al came from Shimo-kitazawa, to Sagamihara wood.
We worked on eight songs. We are finalizing a new album: Of course in there will be our personal favorite, “Joanne”, mastered At Metropolis Studios.
We have been working on this new album for a while now.
It is still not mastered, as in, ALL the trax.
But we are getting close to finalizing the album.
After we get the master from Metropolis studios, And Al, our singer gives the yes for the mastering, we will master the rest of the tracks here at Stillbliss.
Some of the tracks you might be familiar with if you bought-The dandy Lionz- Closer Album. We refined the trax and added new songs and the name is now (Audio Stone.)
Released soon on Stillbliss Records, on all online digital distribution sites ie; itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google play etc.
Overall, a really fun time was had here at the studios today.
Cheers! And glad tidings to you and yours from all of us here at Stillbliss.
We just finished mastering Mr. Clarkey’s latest humorous track, that will be released on all Digital formats.
most likely by January 1st.
It is a funny little ditty.
If you are into Joking tunes, it might be your cup of tea!
Once it is released, we will officially let you know.
As for now, just be excited about it!
“Ah but it’s cold outside”!
Yes it’s the holiday season.
We’re all wishing you all the best!
We hope you are all enjoying it with those you love.
Stay tuned for more Stillbliss news!
So, we’ve been working with Chris from the UK now for more than a decade it seems. He always pays us for our work, and commends us for our quality.
Today we got an email from him asking us to replace some guitar parts for “Brexit Wonderland”. As the previous ones weren’t in sync with the drums, that were perfectly on time. As you can see, we also perform session work as well as recording, Mixing, and Mastering.
When it comes to mastering, we have only had good things said about our quality. We even had Rubella, a UK rock group who asked us to master one of their songs. They said they will use us again!
Anyways. “Stinky Little Poo” is a kids song that plays to the melody of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. And Chris, put some hilarious lyrics to it.
He asked us to add a Piano part that he did in his home studio in the UK.
For Brexit, we boosted the guitar track that as sent us. We ran it through our BLA 173 and PBC 6a combo. To fatten the sound. As well as making it mono. like we do almost all our stereo trax, that can become Mono.
Anyways, I think I gave all my secrets away here.
Oh yeah! We use Ik MultiMedia’s T-Racks 3 standard for Mastering. As we can afford it, and it is the most phattest sound on the digital market for mastering, that we have heard.
Last night we also finished mixing a single from Audio Stone’s new album that will be coming out soon. We wanted to add the extra magic that came with mastering from Metropolis Studios.
So, keep an eye out for “Joanne” a true love story by the dudes at Audio Stone, here in Japan.
We love you!
And wish all the best for this seasons greetings!
Happy Hanukkah from all of us at Stillbliss.
So, with all the terror and hype around the pandemic, that people are forced to wear masks, is just a bit too much. But honestly?
We need a little Christmas. The magic from Stillbliss. And everything that music stands for, we are in it too!
This month we will have Skip Taylor over for a session. But honestly, This year has been great!
Of course the pandemic still keeps this year, and maybe next in the checking zone. But honestly? Let’s spend this years ending with those we love!
Of course I could post about all the bad. but this blog is not made for that. The news and TV already does that well enough.
So, honestly? we just want to send our Stillbliss love to you all!
