“I Will Survive”

So the other day,
we spent more than half of it, recording drums and vocals, for Alika Arroyo’s new number.
Well, It’s not THAT new, being that it was one of his tracks from his previous band that won a contest with this number.

We used the Cinemag Tranformers on the B12A Quad, as well as the Edcore Transformers on the B173 pre’s.

We used the KSM 32SL as the room mic, and the last four pre’s we used for the over heads and kick and snare.

Yes! It sounded like Fu%in Rock N’ Roll Baby!
His vocals were a bit distorted. But I kind of liked that version. So I didn’t ask Alika for a retake.

Anyways, all that to say, I am just now waiting for Alika’s reaction to the mix I gave him!

And if he likes it, we’ll use it on the Album that we are working towards finishing.


So, yeah. Al’s new band new album forth coming!

So yeah! Like the title suggests. We have been working on a couple more songs to finish up the album that was previously called ‘Closer’ By the DandyLionz.

That album never made it to the other distributors. Only a couple sales from that album came in.

Al, the singer, for this album, and the face on this post, wanted a couple different tracks for the record.

I’m still not sure which one we will be adding to this album, but honestly? I couldn’t care less.

We have been having a blast recording the past few weeks, whenever we can to finish up this album for you to partake of.

Some ear candy licks from yours truly, are placed in this gem of an album, all recorded, Mixed & Mastered At Stillbliss.

We have been getting good comments, and different suggestions for the tone of the album.
As for now, just wait!
We will have an album for you to devour soon!

So stay tuned for new music in the near future!

Keep keepin’ on folks!

Thats all from me!

Stay Blissed out!

New Ruby song, mixing. And mastering: “The Wanker Song” & “Good Morning Lord” for Chris.

So, yeah. We’ve been busy in the studio the past few weeks. Working with Chris in the UK.
He has been sending us STEMS to mix, aka, sending his tracks through our Class A gear. And mixing them with waves Power pack in Cakewalk Sonar 8.5. Producer Edition.

This has been over a decade long relationship with Chris, and he has always been saying that it is “A pleasure working with us”!

There may be people who think that they are better than us, and don’t think we are worth our weight in Gold.
But Chris, has been proving those naysayers wrong.

God bless your heart dear Chris!
We haven’t just been working with Chris recently, we also just recently mastered for UK’s indie band Rubella. They also said they will be using us in the future!

Meaning, they liked our work! And my sister in Singapore has been supporting us with the hosting of this website. Bless her heart!

We do hope to give you exciting content to read over!
So, to cap it all off, we’ve got two new songs that are already mastered, and have been sent through the net, to Chris for digital distribution on Stillbliss Records. Available real soon on major digital outlets for your consumption.

When they are available we will be letting you know!
As for now? Just bliss out peeps!

Chris Larke, and stems from the UK mixing sessions!

Recently, we’ve been collaborating with Artist and good client Chris Larke.

He lives in the UK, but still uses us for session purposes, as well as mixing and mastering.

He sends us the stems from his home studio to us through dropbox.
We pick up the stems off the net, then he pays us through Paypal what he deems fit.

Seems to working swell as of late.

Recently we’ve been working on three of his new titles entitled: “Good morning Lord”. A praise worship song. “The Wanker Song” A Comedy song- Of course! And last but not least: “The Rugby Song”.

Chris likes watching Rugby. So I can only guess that is why he made this song.

Whenever he thinks something needs to be tweaked according to his taste, he mentions it, and we are on top of it!

Either way, we are enjoying each others take on the songs.
All mixed and mastered here at Stillbliss.
And soon to be released on Stillbliss Records!

So, Stay tuned for more news to come!!

Alika Arroyo’s new Christian tunes, and recording drums.

So,

Today was supposed to be the day that my band practiced.
But due t our bassist having a problem, we opted for recording instead.

Two songs. “I will Survive” And “Praise Your name”

We had our bands drummer come from Saitama in his car.
And we HAD to use him, so we hacked out real drums for these two tunes.

Most likely we will be releasing these tunes in the near future once they are complete.

For now we give you the news of what happened today in the studio.

“Now the Day Is Over (End of the Day Prayer) by Mr. Clarkey Sings…

So, we give you a new tune made by Mr. Clarkey.
It’s a prayer that a school in the UK memorized for their schooling.

And Mr. Clarkey made it into a song.
Pretty ingenious wouldn’t you say?

Here are the links to Amazon Japan, USA and itunes.
I’m pretty sure it’s on Spotify and google play as well.

Mixed and Mastered here at the studios.
All released on Stillbliss Records!

Enjoy!




Fando- Tokyo Sessions.

So yesterday Fando came over to re-record some parts that he wanted to redo. being the perfectionist that he is, he wanted to make sure his album is tops- And, it’s sounding GREAT!

We are using the BLA173 into the PBC6a using the SHURE KSM 32.

He is liking the results alot.

We had a three hour session. And it we got alot accomplished Fando said.
I would have to agree lol!

Anyways. Today I’m going to be tweaking a bit more on one song that needs some TLC, according to Fando’s standards.

So, folks, stay tuned for new acoustic pop coming to your local Digital online store soon.
Of course we need to master it, and send it off to the distributor, but very soon, you will have a taste of Blissful goodness!

“Now The Day!” A Christians prayer at school! The mixing sessions!

So,
for the past few days, we have been in connection with Chris Commander who lives all the way across the globe in the UK.

He has been sending us his stems from his home studio.

He recently wrote a melody to a School’s prayer that each student is learning.
He put melody to words.
That’s pretty ingenious if you ask me!

He records the vocals, bass, pads, strings, etc, what have you, then he sends it to me for mixing. And if the signal is weak, and needs that extra Cellulite, we run it through our vocal chain: The Black Lion Audio BLA 173, and the FMR Audio PBC6a Going through German AD/DA- Which is not cheap, to say the least, which gives the tracks some strength, where there was none.

I personally do not decide how much the job costs.
Chris decides.
And personally I’m happy with that. Making money with what you love, is more than enough joy for me!

So,

Thank you dearest Chris, for continually using us and properly paying us the amount you deemed fit for each project, and our time!

Most likely he will be using our label for releasing: Stillbliss records.

We can’t wait to let you hear how it sounds!!

We enjoyed it all Chris! It’s a very nice song! Even though it’s short, it’s sweet! Thank you Chris!

And peeps out in Blissful land, stay tuned for more info on what is Bliss.

OK! I’m out!

“Now The Day” mixing for Chris Commander.

So, we got in the mail this morning a message from Chris Commander, to mix his song, which is a tune he added to a School’s daily prayer.
It’s called “Now The Day”.

He lives in the UK. but,

He sent me the STEMS some of the stems were a bit quiet, so I re-amped them through our trusty BLA173 & PBC6a combo- It always works!

He kindly sent us the amount he would like to pay for this service. Through PayPal.

He has been doing this for us for a while now! Thank you Chris!!

We hope to continually be of service to you and your musical Endeavors.

As for now, we just wait to see what he has to say about the mix.

“The Farting Song” by Mr. Clarkey Sings.

Mr.Clarkey has some new tunes up his..never mind. I won’t say it.
But we have to let you know about the latest tunes coming out on Stillbliss Records.

We wish you all a safe return to normal life, pre Covid.
We all are effected by these tough times.
And it is through these tough times, that refine us and define us as to who we really are!

The world needs people who are committed to the right side. not the dark side.
And sometimes we need a little lifting of the spirits. So we give you;

“The Farting Song” by ol’ Mr.Clarkey.
