So, folks. Take note: We are still rockin`!
We worked with Alika Arroyo from the band- Mother Slug Tokyo.
Why? You may ask.
We are working on a Semi Christian album. Being that we both love the good lord, and love rock and pop music, we have been in the Stillbliss factory recording Alika`s vocals, over the past few years.
Now, and very soon we will be releasing them under, The dandy Lionz band name!
Released on all Digital formats: itunes, Amazon, Google play, Spotify, and you know the rest.
So, without further ado, I will give you the low down- if ya know what I mean.
Today, I mixed the tracks, tommorow I will be sending the mixes to the main singer Alika: for further checking.
Then, we will master and release them!
We are also on the verge of releasing fernando Ezeberry`s originals on Stillbliss Records. We are waiting for him to come back from Australia.
And after a few tweaks to the lyrics and recordings- we will be ready to master and release.
So, if you are in need of blissful recordings, please pay attention to this blog, as we will let you know what is bliss in this digital realm.
Please. At least give us a 30 second listen.
the other day we worked with Alika in the studio on our new semi christian Album soon to be released digitally on all major platforms: itunes, Google play, Amazon, Spotify etc.
We will be naming our band- The Dandy lionz.
So keep an eye out for these new releases.
All I can say is it`s been real fun making these songs.
We are just waiting for my studio monitor`s amplifier (which is in repairs right now,) to be fixed, so I can mix and master the tracks.
Anyways that`s what`s bliss these days.
So, being that I live in Japan, Kanagawa ken, and Chris lives in England: Chris, asked me to mix and add elements to his Christmas tune.
It will soon be Christmas, with the stockings and all that Christmas entails.
So, he asked me through email if I could mix and add my talents to this new track of his. And of course I said yes.
He paid me through paypal, the amount he thought was fair for the trade of my services.
And I sent him the mp3 of the mix yesterday.
Now he is just listening to the non vocals, non acosutic mix. With just the elements that I added.
Now I just wait and see what he thinks.
Hopefully he will say that he likes it!
Now just to sulk in the basking glow of a redbull in my veins.
Peace out homies!
Today was a good day!
We got to work with prolific Singer songwriter- Fernando Ezeberry.
He`s really got the chops on his new tunes.
We used the FMR AUDIO PBC6A going through the BLACK LION AUDIO BLA 173, into RME converters, into Sonar Producer edition.
We recorded his cute little Backpack Martin acoustic. It has a real full bodied sound compared to the size of it.
We used our trusty SHURE KSM 32SL.
As you may see in the pictures, we had a lot of fun.
I mean of course! We ALWAYS have a great time with our Clients who come here.
And after we master these tracks: He will be using our label Stillbliss Records for his EP release- Also, soon to be released on all Digital Download stores.
Please enjoy the pictures we attach with this post.
And stay chilled out. For after all, this stuff`s so Bliss, this makes you rich.
By the way, other than what happened today- We are working on another project with Mother Slug Tokyo`s main vocalist, Alika Arroyo.
Soon to be released with the artist name as `The Dandy Lionz`.
So keep an eye out for our: unsecular, temporarily, Christian album, with some catchy tunes; Also, On all Digital download sites. Soon coming out!!
Bliss out fam! !
Today we worked on a rapper from the northern part of France.
He rapped in French. And we used Sonar to record.
We used the Black Lion Audio through the PBC 6a compressor, going the RME converters. And the SHURE KSM 32SL- which you see in the picture.
Overall it took us one hour to record the vocals.
And then he had us master the track using T-Racks Standard.
Overall another fun time was had in the studios!
So, these past few days at the studios, we have been working on Fernando Ezeberry`s track. He recorded it in Argentina with his cousin.
They used Reaper. And the sounds, weren`t THAT bad. So, he sent me the STEMS. (Which are the audio files piece by piece. track by track.)
It`s a track with interesting chord moves. I was quite impressed.
Being a college music grad. I think, my thoughts on the song, were, like- “Wow! they sound like the beatles.”
I added bass guitar to the track tracking through the Black Lion Audio BLA 173.
As well as mixing the tracks, using waves power pack plugins, and then some.
He asked me to redo some parts. As well as asking me a couple times for different renditions. And different mixes.
I think it might have been at least 5 or more bounce downs/exports.
Anyways, he was impressed, and is working now with his cousin to retrack the drums, as well as the guitars.
He sent me the tracks in 24 bit 44.1khz.
And everything went well.
Well, that`s everything bliss for you for now!
Stay healthy. Eat your greens. And keep up with all things….you know what I`m going to say!
So, yes. Today was a fun filled morning studio session. Starting at around 9:30.
First the day was supposed to be a rainy day. But it turned out to be real sunny. We even used the AC.
He came again with his motorbike- Cool. All the way from Roppongi. Which is where he works.
His company is asking him to stay for another six more months. But he is not sure about that. But either way, we had a great time recording one new song, and redoing some vocal parts for some songs that we already recorded.
He will be using our label- Stillbliss Records to release his titles. On all Digital platforms. itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google play, and you know the rest!
So, yeah, we recorded his beautiful sounding Martin guitar which he brought on his back while riding his motorbike.
Now just to wait and see what he thinks of the mixes that I sent him.
And of course he is using our mastering services as well!
-The reason, well, I believe, that we are rated so highly in our client`s view, is because we make sure the outcome of the song has reached it`s full potential.
THAT, is why, we have five stars on google, and Facebook.
Thanks for reading this far. And most of all thanks for keeping up with all things bliss!
After all, this IS Stillblissstudios! We are one and no-other. Where magical recordings are made.
Have a great day or night, wherever you are!
Yesterday Alika from the band the 69er`s came over to our studio.
We recorded a song of his.
We added, guitars, bass, helped him with the harmonies to the song, mixed it, added strings, etc.
Overall he said I rocked. So I guess things went well.
Today we worked hard on three songs, that are going to go onto a new Christian EP that we have planned for the near future.
We don`t have a sponser yet. But we are hoping that we will be noticed by someone.
Yes. I know. I own a label AND a website. And can upload my tracks to digital download sites.
But honestly how many of you want a Christian Album that is only digital…
No-one. I know!
That is why we are trying to get all the best songs of ours and put it in a nice little Stillbliss style format and genre? I dont know. But honestly. Who here wants to listen to more EDM anyways.
Anyways. My point here is that we have rocking good songs that can eaily go onto your playlist.
If you are a Christian label please hit me up!
Anyways that`s what transpired today in the studio.
August 31st. To be exact.
Available on all digital download stores.
All on our record label- Stillbliss Records.
It`s called “Oshiri short”. Based off of the Japanese “Kaeru no uta”.
Chris Larke changed the lyrics to- Oshiri no uta.
Yes. I know. It`s a bit morbid in taste. But it`s funny nonetheless.
We hope you look forward to, and enjoy our new release.
All mixed and mastered here at Stillbliss.
Stay tuned for more insight into all things blissful.
