Category Archives: The studios

Hello hello!

Yes! We are still in the business of making music. The music biz!

We have a gotten emails from people wanting to use us for free, all the way down to someone asking if we were a rehearsal studio.

But, first and foremost we are a recording studio/label that will never adhere to the public. But will tell things like they are. That is what has made us successful. Yes! You may use our label, if you have some relation to us!

Anyways. Recently weve been coordinating with Chris Ekral/Larke/Commander. Weve just sent off a mastered version of his song called “Making ten”. It`s a cute diddly little tune about making ten. 1 plus nine equals 10 etc, etc. He pays us through paypal. And he has been the most faithful client of Stillbliss. He has been using our services as well as our label from day one!

I (Jesse) have been busy with music too. As I am in a punk rock band here in Tokyo/Kanagawa. So its flowing through our bones.

Our studio is also supported by my sweet sister, who, pays for our hosting and site development. So, no worries on the dissapearing of this site.

We have been using Stillbliss as our logo theme for already more then ten years, and counting.

So when you do come to record and use our services, and uploading to digital distribution you are cashing in on our legacy and history.

So enough talk. Now, go and buy one of our Blissful tunes!

Pablo drummer recording drums.

Yesterday we were in the studio recording drums for Slingshotmillion2, and Pablo, -another rock band. The drummer came over three hours later then he said. But overall things turned out ok, because I needed to be the engineer for the session.

He didn`t mention about recording first of all. But afterwards he mentioned how he wanted to record. I first thought that he wanted just to practice and use our drumset for practice.

He is giving me a snare stand in  return  for my services.

Well thats the blissful news for ya!

Stay cool peeps!

Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy Thanksgiving for you from Stillbliss!


These past few weeks we have been working with Yui, the main singer for Slingshotmillion2’s, main singer’s Youtube channel.
She has been coming over and recording through the Black lion audio B173, and FMR BPC6a combo.

She mentioned to me how the sound sounded clouded, well Yui, that is the sound of analog gear.

We have also been working with Dj Ali in Nagoya, with his original song.

And we also have been working Chris Ekral with his new tunes. He has been sending us STEM’s through the net, and we mix and add elements.
We are still working on getting his latest song finished. As it seems like he wants to redo the vocals for the song.

Overall we have been busy at the studios.

Anyways we hope you are enjoying your holidays with those you really do love!

Happy Blissful holiday to you!! 😉

Sincerely,

All of us here at Stillbliss

Chris Larke/Ekral/Commander, new tune and Editing for DJ Ali.

Yes! These guys have been good clients of mine for a while now.
They have come to the studios in the past. But now we pretty much work online. DJ Ali sent me Stems to edit into a song. That was challenging, since I had to sync the tempo to the original track that was the standard. But it wasn`t possible to sync it, so I had to just use my intuition.

Chris Larke, sent me four stems. Vocals, and guitars. I then mixed them and added electric guitar, as well as bass, and a loop.
He sent me the BPM, which made it easier for me to work on the project.

Anyways thats whats been happening at stillbliss.

Enjoy the rest of our Sunday!!

Yui the Youtuber starter, at Stillbliss!!

The other day, we had Yui, the main singer from Slingshotmillion2 come over for making a Youtube video.

We ran the vocals and guitar through our BLA 173 and the guitar through our Mackie onyx preamps.

We took the video with her Mac tablet. We used a couple of our doodads from the studio for the vid. Like, Wall-E, Mater and some lego guitars. Overall it was fun.

She will be making more videos with us. She said she will become a youtuber to bring more customers into our live shows.

Anyways, I dont feel like making this long. So I leave you with a pic of Yui.

Chill guys!!

The reason for our success. Spelled out in words.

Well, Honestly, I don`t know how and where the years went running this studio, but it has already been over a decade of recording. We have recorded alot! It seems that recording just seems to go on and on! There`s no end to it.

Yes! I have been slacking off on posts, learned alot about what TOO post, and what NOT to post, courtesy of sweet clients.

We have been in Kofu, Tokyo, and finally settled down in the countryside of Sagamihara. Which is actually a blessing more than a curse.

Living in the outskirts of Tokyo, is a great way to capture just what THE ARTIST`s hope to catch, the Magic, which is what we always strive to gather in our quest for better and more great music for YOU the listener to listen to.

Yes. We listen to POP music too! Some of our favorites being; Keane, Lady Antebellum, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, just to name a few. And of course the artists who have come through our studios doors.

They are all important. This site wouldn`t be surviving if it hadnt been for my dear sister, who will be paying for the website hosting and what not in the future. So no worries there.

Anyways, the magic really comes from the artists who come. I just add what I can to the mix, and the rest is History.

Some people might wonder if what Im ding is fun. Well, it hasnt always been fun and games. As this artform like any artform, takes time to hone and adapt to.

Also recently playing in a band, adds to the mystery of how everything comes together when you try your best, and be positive about everything, and count on your partner to support you.

If there is anything I learned from being in the music business, is that you cannot rush things. You need to take things, a step at a time, or you might miss something important.

Anyways I`ll leave you with these thoughts, and a favorite wallpaper for this post.

Anyways, stay blissed out. And Peace out my good friends!

Yesterday`s session with Slingshotmilion2`s main Female Vocalist.

Yesterday we had some fun in the studio.

We recorded some vocals, and practiced some songs (That we are going to sing on the streets soon) before recording.

It went real well. In fact Im so happy that my sister helped me out with the renewal of this website, that I think I`ll go make mysef a cup of Joe to celebrate.

Yes we will still have this website up, even in the midst of chaos in my life, which has to do with my band. Which takes up alot of time and money.

Like for instance, I have to go practice with my band all the way out in Tokyo. A place I really don`t like.

But have to do it,
Just because I am the lead guitarist, and we will be performing a sole one band live on the 9th of next month.

Other than that, my mic is giving up the ghost. It sputters and makes random noises. I know thats not so good for my studio to blog about that, but, it still works, so I don`t care.
