These past few days, we have been working with Music Aficianado Chris Commander/larke/Ekral/And the helpers.
He has been communicating with me through emails, and has been paying me well, for my services.
This is a Christmas song that he wrote. And I believe it will be done before this coming Christmas.
At least, that is what we are hoping for!
This has been a labour of love, and we hope that you can take a little bit of Stillblisss Christmas with you when you purchase this tune.
Available real soon on all digital download platforms!
Here are some links to the latest from Chris Commander.
All mixed and mastered here.

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!
So, folks. Take note: We are still rockin`!
We worked with Alika Arroyo from the band- Mother Slug Tokyo.
Why? You may ask.
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.
the other day we worked with Alika in the studio on our new semi christian Album soon to be released digitally on all major platforms: itunes, Google play, Amazon, Spotify etc.
We will be naming our band- The Dandy lionz.
So keep an eye out for these new releases.
All I can say is it`s been real fun making these songs.
We are just waiting for my studio monitor`s amplifier (which is in repairs right now,) to be fixed, so I can mix and master the tracks.
Anyways that`s what`s bliss these days.
So, being that I live in Japan, Kanagawa ken, and Chris lives in England: Chris, asked me to mix and add elements to his Christmas tune.
It will soon be Christmas, with the stockings and all that Christmas entails.
So, he asked me through email if I could mix and add my talents to this new track of his. And of course I said yes.
He paid me through paypal, the amount he thought was fair for the trade of my services.
And I sent him the mp3 of the mix yesterday.
Now he is just listening to the non vocals, non acosutic mix. With just the elements that I added.
Now I just wait and see what he thinks.
Hopefully he will say that he likes it!
Now just to sulk in the basking glow of a redbull in my veins.
Peace out homies!
Today was a good day!
We got to work with prolific Singer songwriter- Fernando Ezeberry.
He`s really got the chops on his new tunes.
We used the FMR AUDIO PBC6A going through the BLACK LION AUDIO BLA 173, into RME converters, into Sonar Producer edition.
We recorded his cute little Backpack Martin acoustic. It has a real full bodied sound compared to the size of it.
We used our trusty SHURE KSM 32SL.
As you may see in the pictures, we had a lot of fun.
I mean of course! We ALWAYS have a great time with our Clients who come here.
And after we master these tracks: He will be using our label Stillbliss Records for his EP release- Also, soon to be released on all Digital Download stores.
Please enjoy the pictures we attach with this post.
And stay chilled out. For after all, this stuff`s so Bliss, this makes you rich.
By the way, other than what happened today- We are working on another project with Mother Slug Tokyo`s main vocalist, Alika Arroyo.
Soon to be released with the artist name as `The Dandy Lionz`.
So keep an eye out for our: unsecular, temporarily, Christian album, with some catchy tunes; Also, On all Digital download sites. Soon coming out!!
Bliss out fam! !
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!
So, these past few days at the studios, we have been working on Fernando Ezeberry`s track. He recorded it in Argentina with his cousin.
They used Reaper. And the sounds, weren`t THAT bad. So, he sent me the STEMS. (Which are the audio files piece by piece. track by track.)
It`s a track with interesting chord moves. I was quite impressed.
Being a college music grad. I think, my thoughts on the song, were, like- “Wow! they sound like the beatles.”
I added bass guitar to the track tracking through the Black Lion Audio BLA 173.
As well as mixing the tracks, using waves power pack plugins, and then some.
He asked me to redo some parts. As well as asking me a couple times for different renditions. And different mixes.
I think it might have been at least 5 or more bounce downs/exports.
Anyways, he was impressed, and is working now with his cousin to retrack the drums, as well as the guitars.
He sent me the tracks in 24 bit 44.1khz.
And everything went well.
Well, that`s everything bliss for you for now!
Stay healthy. Eat your greens. And keep up with all things….you know what I`m going to say!
