“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!

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.

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!

“Wasps do not care” new song availbale soon.

We just finished mastering Chris Commander’s new tune called “Wasps do not care” Which is a little ditty created for the pesty little flyers they are.

We used Sonar for recording and mixing. And for mastering we used IK-Multimedia’s T racks 3 standard edition.

We always offer this service for 20$ a track.

We are excited to see people using us as well as this new song from Chris Commander.

He will be releasing it very soon, all on our Independant label: Stillbliss Records.

Available (Very soon) on all digital download sites.

We had fun making it! We hope you enjoy it as well!

F%ckin gold.

Dear Reader,

If you ever wonder what keeps us going on, no matter what?
Well, blame it on our ADD!

Maybe we`re a different breed. But honestly today`s session of two hours was a hell of a lot of fun. Got to record with Legend singer and songwriter Alfred Arroyo Jr.

We recorded just the guitars, acosutic, and bass as well as Classical, and electric.

We are still using Cakewalk`s Sonar DAW. 8.5. Running on a WINDOWS XP PC.

I mean if it works, why fix it right?

We are also working closely with music Aficionado Chris Commander, with his stems he sends us through the mail.
God bless his soul. He pays us well!

And we aren`t shutting down for as far as I can tell!

“The Corona Shake” song available soon!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working on Chris Commander`s new tune called “The Corona Shake”.

I added a synth, bass, Guitars, and a beat, ran the stereo drums through the BLA 173. it really kicked the levels up quite a notch. The drums were lacking punch and volume. So with the BLA 173 PBC 6A Combo, we really added that extra silky smooth 1073 neve sound to the whole track.

We usually ask for 100$ for mixing a whole song. But I did this for Chris, as he is a very good client of ours and pays us well.

So, he is in the middle of redoing the vocals for this song.

I also added some acoustic playing for three acoustic songs of his acoustic numbers called:
“If this is peace”, “Smiling in the sun” and “Running Low”.

We mixed and sent off the mp3`s to him. now we just wait for him to answer us.
Thank you Chris, and thank you for reading, and tuning into our blissful channel.

He will be using Stillbliss Records as his label for release. So will Fando, after he contacts us about his mixes we sent him recently.

Bliss out folks!

Rock on! Fando..!

Yep!
That`s our new artists name who came today to work on some tracks of his.

He brought over a lotsa stringed up small guitar and his backpack Martin all on his steady little bike.

We had about a good three hours of good fun!

After his album, which is Called `Tokyo Sessions` is Mastered here, he will use Stillbliss Records as his label!

All good fun!

Enjoy! You blissed out folk!


Chris Commander with some BAD lyrics!

Gonna be a whopper I tell ya!
He`s getting into the deep zone here with his take on the Corona Virus.
Yes! You heard me right. He wrote a song for the outbreak we are having here on this earth.

Yes, it might be scary, but actually it`s just a hoax that the media is trying to amplify the situation.
Yes there is Influenza, but still, just wash your hands and gargle when you get back home.

Honestly, is there anything more difficult then that?
Here in Japan, almost everyone is wearing a mask of some sorts.
It`s all over the news, wherever you look.

But honestly good people. Do we really need this histeria?!
That, is where Chris comes in with the soon to be released on Stillbliss Records: “Corona Virus (The Song) “.

This is actually a new take on his hit song, “Pretty Bitches”. Which is on his Going For the Pop Jugular EP.
This is a Remix using synths and beats from Sonar 8.5 Producer edition.

We ran his tracks through the creamy BLA 173. And that sorta heated up his tracks that he recorded at home.

For the most part we usually leave the tracks that we get alone. But these tracks could use some analogue juice. So we went for that option.

Anyways, keep an eye out for the soon to be released, “Corona Virus Song” From Chris Ekral/Commander/Larke.

Peace out brothers n` sisters!
