The EP is entitled Tokyo, from Rock/Grunge band Mother Slug.
This album has been in the making now for over two years, if my memory serves me correctly..
Ha! This was a joint effort between the guitarist and I as well as a session drummer named Mike Marrington. The tracks were basically all done at our studios. Besides some of the guitar parts were added by the guitarist of the band.
t know about dropping any real names here per se.
But I wanna tell you it`s a good album to buy!
They will be using our label Stillbliss Records as their official label that is supporting them.
They have used our studio to record their drums for this album, as well as vocals and some light mixing.
The mixing was mostly done by their guitarist, and I have to say, it is a good listen.
From all the albums I own (Which is alot), These guys have really nailed the grunge rock scene perfectly.
With grungy guitars, and Alika Arroyo as main singer and Ichihiro as the main guitarist- this Ep is a killer.
So, check out band Mother Slug`s new forthcoming Ep- Tokyo. Available on Amazon, Itunes, Google Play, and almost all online retailers.
Today, I got to hear from Band singer Alika Arroyo, that he will be pressing cd`s for sale, and will be releasing them online as well. It is from the grunge pop punkish rock band Mother slug.
Yes we don
t have many full albums out from this studio, but very soon Stillbliss records will be releasing the new album entitled-Tokyo, from band, Mother slug.
We are also working at the moment with guitarist Takaki Longfield with an original tune, using vocaloid sounds on vocals as well as distortion guitar.
We are passing the stems through our Boutique analog gear to liven up the sound.
s what`s been happening on the home front.
Yesterday from 11:30 we hashed out in the studio till around 8:00 pm.
We worked on drums, guitar & vocals.
I will be mixing the songs today. Also sending a track to our bassist who is in England right now. He will layer his bass parts, then I will put them through the BLA 173 PBC6a Combo.
My Mixer is slowly dying but hopefully I can use another output where it is going faulty on me.
Other than that things are going well.
Stay tuned for more studio news in the future.
Here at our studios, there`s always something new happening.
Next June we will be recording a band from Okinawa. We will be Recording, mixing & Mastering two of their songs.
We treat each song like a piece of art. As each song from the artist, IS a part of his or her dream. So with the tools at hand, we recorded some elements yesterday, and I am just adding the gloss on the already made songs.
I am currently working on a band that I play in called Slingshotmillion2. Yes. There was a slingshotmillion before. Now that band is upgraded to 2 . Hahaha!
Plus we are not just a studio. We are also a record label that can upload your tracks to Itunes, Amazon, Google play etc.
Basically every online market there is, we`ve got your covered.
And all you have to do is come to our studios, then we will help you with the rest.
Making music, is our passion. So when you come, you will feel that passion and fervor from us.
We do hope you enjoy this blog and studio news as it comes.
Thank you for visiting us in our journey to make magic happen!
So. Today we worked on a Slingshotmillion2`s session. It was quite hyped to say the least.
We recorded drums, vocals, guitars, bass and tommorrow I will be editing and mixing the songs.
Henma, the drummer for a different band from Okinawa called Pablo, will be using us in June. He said he wanted to record two songs with his band from Okinawa. That`s good news for us. As any kind of input on the money scene is always welcome.
We ended off with some vocal recording.
We used the BLA 173 PBC6a combo. Quite killer.
Using our trusty Shure KSM 32Sl for vocals. And for guitars, we used an old Shure SM57. The older it is the more used it sounds. And personally I like it over our newer SM57.
Anyways, I`ll be working on these tracks over the next few days.
Should be good fun!
Today I woke up at around 6:30.
Right now it is 8:00 as of this writing.
And I already mixed the latest trax that we recorded here for my band Slingshotmillion2.
I also need to record some of my lead bits for the recordings as well. That will be after my brothers wake up from sleeping, so I can vacuum the house, then play loud guitars in the studio and record.
We are currently working on these recordings specifically for giving away to people on the streets.
I personally think that`s a bit wasteful. But ah who cares.
I will also be mastering these tunes as well. So far the sound we have gotten from the BLA 173 has been phenomenal.
Great results and just to let you know- Today is a new day. And the magic continues in our home/studio.
Yes! We may be just a recording studio.
But, we have magic behind our ears and teeth.
We work magic on every studio session.
Whether it be a full band, a single client from another country, or someone asks us to master their track, or make a lyric video.
We take GREAT PRIDE in everything we do. And it shows.
No matter what we do, we excel in perfection. Whether giving away free time for studio clients. Or giving away a free master for a track.
We are personal, AND professional!
No matter what your genre you plan on recording with us, we have only gotten good reviews.

WE are not just a “studio”. we are a record label AND studios in the heart of nature. Ready to explode with you. If you choose to come with us, on our journey to sonic perfection!
Located 20 minutes from Kanagawa`
s Hashimoto station by bus.
We are YOUR studio, for recreation, and stress free sessions!
We`re not just a studio that charges someone for an hour. We give until it hurts.
Just the other day Skip Taylor came in for a session. I gave him an hour free for being such a nice guy.
It`s nice people that win. Not the mean person.
Anyways, recently I have been practicing with my band Slingshotmillion2. We practice at a rehearsal studio in Hon Atsugi, about three times a month. It`s pretty fun!
We also have been recording drums, bass, guitar & Vocals at the studios here. And with the BLA 173, and FMR PBC6a we have a really warm analog sound. It has been great fun these past few days of recording. Jun the band leader said he will be coming over to record vocals later on this week.
Overall we have been having success, and we will be recording drums and vocals in a higher end studio. But we will still be using this studio for recording guitar for a mini album soon available. So stay tuned and come back for more blissful news!!
I guess you could say I`m kinda busy. These past few weeks, or more like days, I have been recording drums, bass, and guitars; Distortion guitars, as well as vocals.
I have also been up to editing a video using the stock video editor in Windows Vista. It`s a bit tricky to use, but I think I got the hang of it.
Also in other good news, other than band and editing- Band Mother Slug will be using our Stillbliss Records label. As well as DJ Ali in Nagoya.
Yes you heard me correctly. A DJ far from where I live (In kanagawa) A DJ In Nagoya wants to use our label. I mean, of course, anyone would want to use it. Especially since it`s royalty free. Of course you have to have some relationship with our studio. Which all of the people who use this label do!
So, other than a jog and hanging out with my pops and brother at a couple of stores today in Sagamihara, that is what has been happening on the home front.
Stay tuned for more Blissful news!
And remember to look for the rainbow in the rain!
