New rock album forthcoming! Mother Slug- Sub Alien: That poor little Sub Alien bunny..!

Today was a good day. I got to drink three Shark energy drinks, and, talk with the main singer of POP Rock band Mother Slug.

He mentioned how he would like to use our label for releasing his new album entitled `Sub Alien`.

It is a completely new album ready to be released, very soon, under Stillbliss records.

We are honored to have so many great artists using this label.

Like we said, it is a completely free to use label.

Alika Arroyo used our studio, therefore giving him access to use our label.

It will be released very soon!

Keep an eye out for this great new album!
Soon available on all major online retailers, as well as hard copies.

Changing pitch for DJ Ali`s songs. From Facebook

Today I was asked by none other than the famed DJ, Ali. He sent me a Message on Facebook with the files he wanted to pitch shift a half a step down from C to B. I used Sound forge 7 from Sony to work this magic.

He is singing famous songs at bars and what not.
He uses us quite often, and will be paying me for my services, this coming Friday.

He will also be using us for mastering soon. And will be using our Stillbliss Records label for his soon up and coming new album.

So stay tuned for more Blissful news!

New song- “Donlad Trump F*** yeah”, from Chris Larke out on March the 6th.

This is a remake of the song, “America, F*** yeah”. Instead, Chris changed things up a bit and made it to, “Donald Trump, F*** yeah”. I was told that it would be released for purchase on all online retailers on march the 6th. Amazon, Google play, itunes, cdbaby, etc.

Come and get a piece of Chris Larke, for yourself this coming spring!

The song was mixed and mastered at our studios.

Enjoy!

Gareth Harris, & Skip Taylor

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with two great guitarists. One a bass guitarist, the other a plain, guitarist.

The day was scheduled to where once the first studio session finished, the next session would start.

So Skip Taylor was first.

He is working on his own little program where he is doing everything. Vocals, guitar, etc. He told me this before we got to the studios.

Then Gareth Harris came after him to record bass parts for the band Slingshotmillion2. Overall it was a great day.

Got to work with two great musicians, as well as talk a little bit about picks and guitars. As well as find out about a different Train routing website called (Eki-Spert) for foreigners like myself.

So, that is what`s happening on the home front!

Chris Larke and Toki Shimizu

This morning I woke up to none other than Toki Shimizu. He just recently came back from visiting the states. He is also a Stillbliss customer, and used us a few years back.

I opened the toilet door after going to the bath room, and there he was, right in front of me. I was amazed.

Anyways, music related news, with Chris Larke; He recently asked me to mix a track for him.
We used The waves power pack, as well as Antares autotune.

He likes the results. We are just figuring out right now whether one main vocal is good, or two doubled main vocals are better.

He recorded tracks in a studio in England, then sent off the tracks to me for mixing. We will also be mastering this track, as well as DJ Ali`s tracks in the near future.

For mastering, I use IkMultimedia`s T-Racks Standard edition.

If you watched our 2017 tour on youtube, you`ll see what I mean.

Chris`s “Donald Trump F*** yeah” is a remake of the famous “America F*** yeah” Song. Instead he rewrote the lyrics for a new song, most likely called “Donald Trump F*** yeah!”

This song will also be released on our label, Stillbliss records.

Anyways Peeps. Stay alive. Stay happy! Stay blessed.

Thats it from me and stillbliss.

Peace!

Recording with Drummer Henma!

Today I had the privilege to work in the studio again. This time recording drums for the band that I am also in- Slingshotmillion2.

We recorded five songs in three hours.

Three are complete. He will be coming back day after tommorow.
This shot was taken today.

We are using Sonar Producer edition, as well as Waves plugins.
I didn`t feel like going for a jog today, since it is really cold. So I opted rather to stay in front of the heater and blog about today.

Other than that, another Blissful experience at our studios.

Stay tuned for more news. As we will be recording more drums day after tommorow. As well, as a fusion guitarist on the 26th of this month.

By the way I also do Instagram. Check me out @jessesoupritchard.

“Kaeru in the Round”- Frog in the round.
“Kaeru Short”- Frog Short.
“Oshiri in the round”- Butt in the round. But he sings about farting.
“Oshiri Short”- Butt short. Also talking about farting. Just shorter.

He will be distributing these four tracks on nearly all online retailers; Itunes, Google play, Amazon etc.

He will be using Stillbliss Records, as his Record Label.
