Yesterday, I was able to have some fun times in the studio with my band Slingshotmillion2.
We recorded Guitar`s, vocals, and drums.
First off we had our drummer come early, to record the drums. Next we recorded the guitar parts. Then vocals.
I will be working on mixing the track, which is called “1, 3, 4.”
t know why its called that, but I guess anything is pop these days!
Oh yes, by the way, the main riff melody for “1, 3, 4” is my melody. My band decided (Finally), on using one of the many melodies I have been sending to my mates.
Also on another topic. I sent a petition to Abbey road mastering services. Which are pretty dope by the way.
I asked them to redo a master, because the vocals were too quiet.
So they sent a revision. And it sounds Much much better.
You can hear what the vocals are saying.
All that to say. Be ready for some Vocaloid action from Takaki Longfield. Soon to be released on major online retailers.
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.
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!
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.
t 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.
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!!
The Artist name is KICE, but is pronounced Kayce.
He visited us a couple years ago, but is still hacking out live shows and events.
He uses our BGM that we made in the studio. He has quite a following, and here are the videos. So I won`t rant on.
I will let the videos speak for themselves.
All songs were produced at our studios.
This is where you can buy his CD album.
The album is entitled; Re:Member.
Today I worked on mastering, a Chris Commander tune in the studio.
I used Tracks 3 Standard for mastering. As well as soundforge 7.0 with the waves L2 maximizer.
He was very happy with the results.
This tune will also be released on our label.
Stay tuned for more news.
Today is a bit of a rant, as well as some news.
Today I worked on mixing two tracks sent to me from Chris Commander/Ekral/Larke.
He pays me pittance for my work. But such is life. You got to Soldier ON!
My right monitor speaker is also giving up the ghost. But who cares. We got to soldier on.
My Dad will check it out tommorow. SO Hopefully we will find the problem and then the studio will be good as new.
Anyways, about soldiering on- Sometimes I wonder if even having this blog or studio website makes a difference. All I can do is soldier on and hope for the best.
So are YOU Soldiering on??
Here is the YouTube link.
Available now for purchase on all major online retailers.
Released by Stillbliss Records.
Today I had the privilege to finish some rough mixes that I sent to my band members todaｙ、ｆrom the POP band Slingshotmillion2.
I was sent bass tracks from our bassist who now lives in the UK.
He sent me the .wav files for two songs of ours that needed his skills.
He sent me the Stems through the net, and then I ran the tracks through our analog gear here at the studios.
It went through the BLA173 to PBC6A compressor. Which kinda fattened the sound as well as making it a but more smooth to the ears.
So after taking some time out, and a cup or two of coffee. I went into the studio and made a rough mix for my band members to listen to.
Hopefully they will like what they hear.
s what`s happening on the home front.
And just to remind you. We will be holding a live show on the 9th of September in Shibuya at live house Guilty.
If you can come over to watch us, that would be cool!
Here is a link where you can buy the tickets.
