“I Will Survive” Soon to be heard on Los Angeles Radio!

So This song will be heard all over Cali, real soon!
One of our Clients has made friends with a dude who will give us airplay in Los Angeles, in exchange for covering one of his songs.

Sounds like a fair trade.

We do NOT condone people who are Sex traffickers.

So, we used that point of view on the latest from Audio Stone!

The song was released on digital platforms early this year. And we are just beginning to see the fruits of our labours.

So, if you want a slice of Audio Stone`s magic and style of our studios, just check out this youtube link!

Cheers!
Today? PARTAY!!!

The Local Aliens session And Chris Commanders Latest track.

So, actually, we have been working with The Local Aliens, which are a group of three guys.
One from Jamaica, one from Korea, and the other from Japan.
They`ve got a very unique sound, that is trippy, and yes, very alienish. If thats even a word.

They came to the studio for two days consecutively. After the first day was done, they stayed at our stations local hotel, then came back the next day to finish the songs.

Their piano guy, Is working on sending me the last bits of the Stems for the tracks.

They are a vibrant few! Their singer actually is a daddy here in Japan. Which he is doing the best job he can to make her and her mommy happy!

Today. Im going out to meetup with some fellow english teachers here in Kanagawa Prefecture.
It is one of the guys birthday today. And my client Jacquie Shindel, has invited me now for the second time!
Thank you Jacquie!

She also used me as a model for her album photo shoot!

Today is going to be a great day!
Why? Well, for one, the typhoon has passed, leaving in its wake, a beautiful crispy autumn sunny day!


Perfect for parties!!

And last but not least we have Chris`s new tune. “Fuck You
Perfect for toning down those maskers we see everywhere!

So, Im going to leave you hanging here. Sorry!
But we will post more details as The Local Aliens are being completed.

He is married to a Japanese wife.
Next up we have Juni. well, Hes, well, Single.
So ladies perk up your antennas.

Well, not THAT new. but hes a dope A## nigga. that can rap the Shi% out of a song.

Both dudes, actually rap in this band. But yes. The Alien you see here, he
`s the main frontman for the Local Aliens.

We used our ever so Trusty setup, of RME converters, into Sonar.
Using the ever so lovely sounding AKG C214. Which rocks the same Capsule as its big Daddy, the AKG 414.
We run that through our ever so trusty rusty, FMR AUDIO PBC 6A, going through the Black Lion audio BLA 173.

It sounds dope as hell.
If you want to hear the final product, then go to your local Convenient store and pay for the itunes card to get your slice of STILLBLISS Magic.
