13 song EP available real soon. By The Dandy Lionz.

Recently we`ve been working in the studios conjuring up some magic.
Getting songs mixed and mastered.

So far it looks like The Dandy Lionz will be releasing a 13 song EP real soon.

With Rock singer Alika Arroyo as the main singer. And I- Jesse Sou Pritchard as the Guitarist and Producer for this album.

We are having a blast with this album: As it is mainly a Christian Album.
but nonetheless POP.

Of course we don`t conjure up evil spirits like Billy Eilish.
We prefer to praise the Good Lord.

Yes I know, I will probably buy the 2020 Grammy Nominees with Billy Eilish in it. But who cares right?!

It`s the heart that matters!

So without further ado, Keep an eye out For `Closer` Which is the title of this new Rock/Christian/pop Album.

Available real soon on all Digital formats REAL SOON!

As for today- `The Dandy Lionz` RULE!

So, folks. Take note: We are still rockin`!
We worked with Alika Arroyo from the band- Mother Slug Tokyo.

Why? You may ask.
Well,

We are working on a Semi Christian album. Being that we both love the good lord, and love rock and pop music, we have been in the Stillbliss factory recording Alika`s vocals, over the past few years.

Now, and very soon we will be releasing them under, The dandy Lionz band name!
Released on all Digital formats: itunes, Amazon, Google play, Spotify, and you know the rest.

So, without further ado, I will give you the low down- if ya know what I mean.

Today, I mixed the tracks, tommorow I will be sending the mixes to the main singer Alika: for further checking.

Then, we will master and release them!

We are also on the verge of releasing fernando Ezeberry`s originals on Stillbliss Records. We are waiting for him to come back from Australia.
And after a few tweaks to the lyrics and recordings- we will be ready to master and release.

So, if you are in need of blissful recordings, please pay attention to this blog, as we will let you know what is bliss in this digital realm.

Please. At least give us a 30 second listen.

Alex from France!

Today we worked on a rapper from the northern part of France.
He rapped in French. And we used Sonar to record.

We used the Black Lion Audio through the PBC 6a compressor, going the RME converters. And the SHURE KSM 32SL- which you see in the picture.

Overall it took us one hour to record the vocals.
And then he had us master the track using T-Racks Standard.

Overall another fun time was had in the studios!

Chris larke mastering. And new tune out soon!

August 31st. To be exact.
Available on all digital download stores.
All on our record label- Stillbliss Records.

It`s called “Oshiri short”. Based off of the Japanese “Kaeru no uta”.

Chris Larke changed the lyrics to- Oshiri no uta.

Yes. I know. It`s a bit morbid in taste. But it`s funny nonetheless.

We hope you look forward to, and enjoy our new release.

All mixed and mastered here at Stillbliss.

Stay tuned for more insight into all things blissful.

Another Fando Session.

Today we rocked in the studio. We recorded two songs of his. Two originals.
He came from Roppongi with his motor bike all the way to Sagamihara.

He said he wants to record more songs before he heads back to Australia.

We are using the Black lion Audio BLA 173, into a FMR AUDIO PBC6A. All this through the Shure KSM 32.

Into RME converters, into Sonar.

We have been using this setup for over a decade now.

We have been having only success with this studio.

And thank you for coming this far with us. On our musical journey.
Keep coming back for more blissful news!

Enjoy your day, wherever you may be!

And, BLISS OUT!!

Not suckers. Just mixing and mastering.

So the past few days, I`ve been contacting Satoshi Nakamura over the net sending a track back and forth, all the while mixing it, and tweaking it.

Just to get the sound the way he wants it before we master it.
He liked it today.
So we mastered it. Using T-racks 3 standard.

We are still using the good ol tried and true Black lion audio BLA 173, through the FMR AUDIO PBC 6a compressor.
Things have never sounded better.

Yes, we may have used the RNP, And, the RNC.

But honestly. You need to upgrade, if you want more clients, and if you want them to be happy with what you give them.

Ok! Over and out.
That`s all that`s blissful here at the studios.

Keep up with the latest of all things bliss here!

Chris Larke goodness, and some drum recording.

Day before yesterday, I got an email asking me to mix three songs of Chris larke`s for a live recording of him playing in a bar, which he wanted to polish up for retail purposes.

So I added some warmth with a cakewalk plugin, and then he asked me to master them, so I did. And he paid me the proper price, and was pleased with the results.

I also recorded some drums for the band Slingshotmillion.

The drummer came from Atsugi all the way to Hashimoto. Brought his own double kick pedal, & then started to record.

we recorded three songs of theirs.

Overall, alot of fun was had these past few days of recording, mixing and mastering.

Mastering “O` little town” For Chris Commander/Larke/Ekral.

This morning I awoke to a beautiful cloudless sky, with the sun shining. I just love sunny days here in Sagamihara.

Today I had the opportunity to work on Chriss new version of O little town". You know. The one O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

After all, we will be having Christmas real soon coming upon us.

I bet he was planning the timing of this release, which will be released on our record label, Stillbliss Records.

I sent off the mastered 16 bit audio red book format so he can send it to all the major online retailers for your consumption.

Anyways, just for you geeks out there wondering what I am using for mastering, I used Ik Multimedia`s T-racks 3 standard, as well as the L2 by Waves. I used a Compressor, and clipper in T-Racks. then boosted a bit more in Sound forge with the L2.

Ok folks thats whats bliss rite now. Hope you`re all enjoying this grand weather. I know I am.

New Chris Ekral/Larke/Commander tune out soon. Mastered at Stillbliss.

These past few days, I`ve been working on a new tune by none other than the infamous Chris Larke.

Its called "The evil that men do" Its an Iron Maiden Cover song, thats well done, in an acoustic form.

The song was mixed through our boutique gear, and phattly mastered at Stillbliss, by yours truly.

The song will be available for purchase through all Major online digital formats. Through our label Stillbliss Records.

We had fun making it! We do hope you enjoy listening to it as well!

Ok! That`s about everything bliss right now.

Chris Larke mixing, and, mastering.

Today we mastered a track called “Fart Short”. Which is a English version of the Japanese Fart song which Chris asked us to elongate. So that Youtube will pickup the song, so he can profit from the ads.

Chris visited us a couple weeks ago, while he visited Japan. We worked on some mixing of a few of his tunes (as well as recording vocals) that we had on the back burner.

We are still in coherts with Chris Commander/Ekral/Larke. Who has been using us for more than five years ago. He has been using us for mixing, recording, & Mastering.

Today was one of those days. Mastering. He wired us money through Paypal.

We wish you all the success you can get Chris!

We are also looking forward to working more with you in the near future.

We will soon have Alika Arroyo over for recording sometime soon. We are just waiting for his schedule to open up and let us know when he wants to schedule a session with us.

Wishing you both the best for all your musical endeavors.
