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 we
ve 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!
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!
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!! 😉
All of us here at Stillbliss
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!!
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.
We had a blast with all the people from Mujakids playground. Or so it`s called.
We had a couple bands perform before our band. We were the main band at the end of the event.
One person mentioned that he became a real drunkard after meeting us. Hey buddy we hope you take it all in good intentions.
Anyways that happened on the 14th of this month.
I just recently came back from a wedding gig in Nagano Prefecture. Matsumoto to be exact. Now I finished doing all of the home chores, and am just blogging here to let you know all things bliss.
Recently my band has been making and writing new songs. And our band leader booked a day at a top end studio in Tokyo. For me it was a new experience. They had Neve, SSL, & Tube tech and a wealth of other outboard gear.
A couple famous Japanese artists have been to this same studio. And I would say they had a nice sound. Of course, they use Protools.
I still use Sonar and Auto tune for fixing vocals.
I could upgrade to another newer version of Sonar. But honestly I`d rather get better physical gear, other than just cheao gimmicks in Software.
Anyways, I had a fun time in the studio. We recorded Vocals and guitars for Slingshotmillion2.
I am also still in the process of remixing Chris Larke`s “Christmas pie”. As well as working for another DJ in Nagoya. They are still in the process of listening to what I worked on.
Other than that, that is what is happening on the musical front for me.
Stay blissed out peeps.
And face the music!!
ve been working in the studio, working on remixing "Christmas Pie". And editing STEM`s from DJ Ali in Nagoya.
I am waiting for Chris`s reply, as to whether he liked the remix I made for him.
As for DJ Ali, I worked for him and edited stems he sent me.
We will soon be working on another one of his/DJ ali`s trax.
Should be fun!
Today we went out to Yokohama to shoot a PV for one of our songs, called “Lalaland”.
We took it close to world porters, with a camera man.
We got a few good angles and shots.
We took pictures and danced around alot.
We had lots of fun and here is the picture of all who helped out with the making of the music video.
The song is called “Lalaland” and will soon be available for listening & viewing on Youtube.
