So, actually, we have been working with The Local Aliens, which are a group of three guys.
One from Jamaica, one from Korea, and the other from Japan.
They`ve got a very unique sound, that is trippy, and yes, very alienish. If thats even a word.
They came to the studio for two days consecutively. After the first day was done, they stayed at our stations local hotel, then came back the next day to finish the songs.
Their piano guy, Is working on sending me the last bits of the Stems for the tracks.
They are a vibrant few! Their singer actually is a daddy here in Japan. Which he is doing the best job he can to make her and her mommy happy!
Today. Im going out to meetup with some fellow english teachers here in Kanagawa Prefecture.
It is one of the guys birthday today. And my client Jacquie Shindel, has invited me now for the second time!
Thank you Jacquie!
She also used me as a model for her album photo shoot!
Today is going to be a great day!
Why? Well, for one, the typhoon has passed, leaving in its wake, a beautiful crispy autumn sunny day!

He asked me to mix it for him!
We do hope you like it Chris!
We used the WAVES Power pack, as well as some R-verb, And L2.
We ran the quieter stems through our trusty ol’ BLA 173, through the PBC6a Compressor.
And as always it delivered, great Cellulite to the track.
We are still using Windows XP here, as well as Cakewalk’s Sonar Producer edition. And the waves plugins. As well as the stock plugins that come with Sonar.

We personally use the C1 Compressor. From Waves!

We use Sound Forge, As well as the Waves- Power Pack.

Yesterday Jacquie came to record a new song.
She has been coming over recently to work on her new album entitled: Mizukaze.
She has been coming over now for over half a year. And she brings her tune in her head, then asks me to put a chord progression over that.
And things seem to be going pretty smooth on that part there!
She made another album while she was in Canada, with her friends.
She is using all our services. The session playing, Recording, Mixing & Mastering.
As well as uploading to the net, itunes, spotify, And Amazon. Etc etc.
We have been using both the BLA 173 in conjunction with the PC6A compressor.
As well as the channels on the B12A Quad. For more than one channel recording.
We have also been using the trusty AKG C214 Professional Condensor Mic.
Anyways, keep a close eye out for a new album by Jacquie Shindel, very soon!
Probably in about at the most, two months time~!
Yeah man. So honestly, we just finished three songs from Jacquie Shindel.
She has a rough but husky tone of voice!
She wrote these songs herself. Then used our mastering, Recording, And mixing, as well as the session playing services.
So you could say: She went all out!
But, THAT’s what we’re here for!
To be of service to you!!
She will be using our Independant record Label for upload purposes.
I personally think two of the songs have real potential.
“Yokohama Mama” And one more.
I cant remember the name of the song. but once it’s mastered, we will have the details for when you can purchase these magical little wonders conjured up in our Stillbliss Laboratory.
