“Oshiri no uta” and more, available now on online stores!

From Chris Commander.

We have a couple humorous tunes from the artist that hails from the UK.

With his witty remarks/lyrics, to compelling melodies. His genre of music is forever expanding. And with this latest endeavor into children`s tunes, his work is even more tantalizing.

Here is the itunes link.
Here is the cdbaby link.
Here is the Google play link.

And for all you YouTube freaks out there. Here is the youtube link to his Frog /oshiri song.

New JPOP Vocaloid track available real soon!

When it comes to Vocaloid JPOP, Takaki Longfield is quite clever.

He came to our studios, to mix and master. But I told him that this song deserved more than just our mastering services.

So, if you want to endorse our musical endeavours, please buy his NEW song.

The title is called “Summer Spectrum”, by Takaki Longfield.

If you YouTube, vocaloid songs, you will see what kind of style it is.

And all that to say, we mastered it at Abbey Road, where the pop bands go to record, like Oasis, red hot chilli peppers, The beatles, etc, etc.

So it`s very pop!!

If you want to hear it, we will upload it to YouTube very soon.

This post is just to inform you that a new poppy song is soon going to come out with our Label, Stillbliss Records.
Available soon, on Itunes, Google play, Amazon, Spotify, etc, etc.

So! Stay tuned for more Vocaloid news in the future!

And stay blissed out!

New Ep- Tokyo. From band Mother Slug, available very soon!

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.

I dont 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.

Coming SOON!

New Vocaloid POP track from Takaki Longfield, Coming SOON! Mastered at Abbey Road Studios!!

Yesterday, I was in the studio with none other than Takaki Longfield. He is a master guitarist & Composer in his own right. We met at a live house event in Ikebukuro and later asked me through line if I could mix a song for him.

Little did I know that this song was a very catchy Vocaloid tune.

It has ripping guitar Rhythm, and a catchy vocaloid vocal track as well as pianos all with a pop punk drum behind leading the pack.

We worked for about four hours in the studio together to get the mix just right. As we cannot settle for anything but the best.

It is called “Summer Spectrum”. All sung in Japanese of course.

But VERY POP!

And since we couldn`t settle for less than the best, we left the mastering up to the top masters of this craft- At Abbey Road studios.

So Abbey road engineers are working on mastering the track as of this writing.

We will be releasing this track on our independant record label- Stillbliss Records.

We will also be uploading the master track toYoutube (Soon) for free Streaming.

So stay tuned for the next pop hit from our Stillbliss hit factory.

Coming soon to all major online retailers!!

Some fun in the sun with Alika Arroyo. And a new album coming soon from Stillbliss Records!

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 dont 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.

And thats what`s been happening on the home front.

All About Jazz/Blues and it`s influence on humans

You may be thinking, well Jesse doesn`t know anything about Jazz. But there is where you are wrong.

Anyone. And I say this again, ANYONE can play Jazz!

It just takes the unique effort of yourself picking up an instrument, and commiting to it.

Then step two would be practicing with a Metronome.

Step three would be to learn a bit about music theory, maybe. I say maybe, because there are genius`s here looking at this very blog, who are probably more gifted then I.

So next: Jazz works in fourths. Sometimes. And like all good Jazz Composers, Like Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk. Buddy Guy, etc..

Of course people are getting hassled everyday, whether your race religion or creed. But honestly, good music speaks to the heart.

So actually I will rename this to All About Jazz and it`s influence, on humans. US! Yes you and and me are part monkey, part human, but the monkey part left out just makes you a tool for Gods bidding.

Well, a bit of religion with this post. Sorry.

If you don`t want anymore stop right HERE!

Music like I said, is an international language.
Whether METAL, PUNK, Whatever.

It speaks to you.

So, pick up an instrument, and play it with all your heart!

Good morning! From Stillblissstudios!!

Recently Ive been downloading tunes from itunes. I go and buy an Itunes redeem card from the nearby convenient store.

It seems that all the good tunes are for 250 yen for one tune.

At least it`s better than paying for a whole album just for one song that you might like.

There are also many other good tunes on Itunes. I currently use an ipod nano fat. It`s been with me for almost 5 years, and it`s still working. Very nice when things work.

Just to give you an update on some tunes That I can remember) that have been recorded here; Jago, Chris Ekral/Larke/Commander, Shock, Adriano Zapatta, Crank killer-T, Suspect zero, Slingshotmillion, Slingshotmillion2, Hell Razer. Monique Dehaney, Terry Brown, Spectrum One, Toki Francis Shimizu, & many more.

We are constantly on the lookout for better gear and better sound.

Right now we are working on Slingshotmillion2`s demo soundtrack. We will be recording the drums and vocals at a larger studio, but the guitars will be recorded here again.

We are actually quite busy. Just to let you know. We aren`t just sitting around doing nothing.
After all we ARE a record label and studio, that has been around since 2004.

We pride ourselves with the quality to price ratio. Which has always been our biggest plus.

We are located a bit far away from humanity. But that in itself is a rewarding experience.

You get to record in the middle of nature where you can hear the birds singing and a nearby river and mountain side of Kanagawa, Sagamihara shi.

We can get your tunes recorded mixed and mastered for a great price.

Our label is free to use, once you do something with us.

Anyways I thought I`d post a recent collage of our studios and show you the evolution of our studios.

Happy days people! Have a good one on us!

Vintage news! As by Jesse. -The studio..! And our form of business.

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.

5 stars on Facebook ain`t just a number, It`s reality. It`s numbers at its finest. It`s magic!

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!
