Jun & Yui rock again in the studio.

Yes. You may not want to hear it, but they came again.
To record another set of YouTube videos, basically radio talk shows in the space of about 15-20 minutes.

Yes you may want to hear about how all peachy things are. But honestly, I would give you all my skills, uduh, if I had any, to you. But honestly, I am getting paid squat for these recordings.

They think they are doing a service by coming over.

But no-one watches or listens to the stuff coming out of this studio anyways.

You all are probably just waiting for me to get ugly and fat sitting in front of this PC.

But honestly? This is not bliss. What is? Maybe gay people, maybe people who are working to listen to youtube videos.

But honestly, do you really think living off of junk food and SHIT really serves for me to be the one blogging about shit?

Honestly no. Just a sec, I need to smoke. No. I dont.

I am going to sip on a coke. Just a sec.

Alright, feeling a little bit better now.

But honestly. When you first came to this website, you were probably like, WTF is Stillbliss anyways.

Well, we started out as a band. Bands break up. People move on.

Me?? I kept on with the true feeling of music. Where you make music blissfully. not sitting behind some huge console thinking you are the boss. Of universal studios, or Capitol records.

We are a studio in Sagamihara which chooses to rock your world.
We dont put up with Bull shit.

Sorry but today I am just letting you know that I do not want any shit from you when you read this.

Of course i am getting paid. but i am not going to tell you how much. because honestly, this is a fucking retarded job.

Nobody wants to let you know the details that a recording entails.

And no one gives away secrets for free.

Okay, I am gonna finish this coke with some take out dinner from Sukiya.

Stay blissed out folks.

Peace Im out.

New Slingshotmillion radio program on air, on Youtube, now. In Japanese.

We`ve recently been working with Yui & Jun of the new age, mixture,  pop punk band Slingshotmillion/Slingshotmillion2.

We recorded Three sequenced shoots in the studio here. Just recently, the editing has been finished.

So, without further ado, I give you Lagoli and Yui.
If you understand Japanese, you might find this humorous.

Lagoli and Yui from Slimiri.

We will be recording another set of these radio programs, next week.

So we will be keeping you abreast with the latest news of everything pop!

Stay tuned for more POP/blissful news.

New Chris Ekral/Larke/Commander tune out soon. Mastered at Stillbliss.

These past few days, I`ve been working on a new tune by none other than the infamous Chris Larke.

Its called "The evil that men do" Its an Iron Maiden Cover song, thats well done, in an acoustic form.

The song was mixed through our boutique gear, and phattly mastered at Stillbliss, by yours truly.

The song will be available for purchase through all Major online digital formats. Through our label Stillbliss Records.

We had fun making it! We do hope you enjoy listening to it as well!

Ok! That`s about everything bliss right now.

Keep in touch and come back again for more blissful news!!

🙂 

Chris larke/Commander/Ekral from the UK. Editing.

So,

Today, I had Oatmeal with Chia seeds, and soy milk for breakfast. Leftovers on the fridge, for lunch. A RedBull, for snack as well as eating my sisters personal stash of Granola….Ooops!

Anyways, back to the music side of things.

Yes!

I edited some parts for a song called “The Evil That Men Do”. I`m actually not sure if this is a cover song or what. Being that Chris usually has pretty catchy melodies.

So, I was asked by him to do a couple things through email.

And then I sent off the mix, to him.

Now just to wait for him to respond.

That`s all things bliss for now!

Skip Taylor- Rocks again.

Or more like fusioning out our ears!!!

He is so cool. He brought me some cookies that he usually brings. I mean he doesn`t have to do it. Because he pays for his time at the studios.

But being the nice gentleman that he is, and not to say a very accomplished fusion guitar player, he is a very nice guy as well.

He lives in Japan, and asked me in about a month in advance before entering the studios.

Yes! We used the Black lion audio BLA 173 into the PBC6a, into RME converters, and Skip also brought over his own tube warming device.

I don`t remember the name right now, but it sure boosted the sound. And we also used the Damage control Womanizer. He mentioned how it sounded great.

Overall we had a blast in the studio. He just asked for water, and we gave it him.

In the winter, we give out clients warm coffee. In the summer like now, we offer ice cold water.

Anyways thats whats bliss rite now.

Cheers folks!!

Head on Over to Shimokitazawa Rokudemonaiyoru.

The Event will be from 21:00-

See you there!

 

Yui, the female singer for Slingshotmillion2 visits us.

Yesterday she came in kind of late. Right around 19:30.
We recorded vocals for the pop/punk band Slingshotmillion2.

We used the Shure KSM 32 Sl, running through our Neve based preamp, the Black Lion Audio BLA 173, into our vintagey Compressor, the FMR audio PBC 6a, into RME converters, then into Sonar.

We are still using the Waves Power pack. As that is really all we need. Of course we sometimes use the R-Verb, and L2 as well as the Trans x, like on drums etc.

But yesterday we got alot done. These trax that we recorded will be used on their new upcoming album soon to be released, where the drums, bass, and guitar all were tracked on SSL and Neve preamps.

But our good ol` Stillbliss factory has been busy.

Just because there are other studios out there aint meanin we aint gettin no jobs.

To the contrary.

We have also been getting job applications from Africa and other countries for interns to work here. But honestly, are you serious?

The music business is dead. Im barely making it by with just me as the producer/engineer.  We dont have the financial resources to pay for another engineer, even though I wouldn`t mind hiring other accomplished acts.

Anyways. Thanks for staying tuned in for what`s blissful these days!

Stay tuned for more info in the near future.
