WORKING FOR CHRIS COMMANDER. IN THE STUDIOS.
So today at the studios, we worked on syncing the tracks of a song called “Fart remix”.
It’s a funk version with some hip beats.
We added some funky guitars, replayed the synth, muted the Japanese vocals, and sent it off to Chris for checking.
Now all we gotta do is wait for his reaction to the mix.
This was a mistake session, due to my bad part of un-muting the vocals that weren’t supposed to be there. So he didn’t pay me, which is fair enough!
Anyways, that’s what we have been up to these days.
Stay blissed out! And stay cool, in this hot summer heat.
because- It Feels Like Summer! lol. ok enough talk.
Stay cool peeps~!
“BLAH BLAH BULLSH*T” NEW SONG! MASTERED AT STILLBLISS.
So Chris Commander has been busy at work with his new jolly little ditties.
This one is about how the politicians just think of themselves and speak nonsense so they can get richer.
We used Sonar for mixing and Sound forge and T-Racks 3 standard edition for mastering.
Listening through 1k$ studio monitors.
Again, we thank you Chris for using us!
If you personally want to use us, please free to contact me Jesse at [email protected] for bookings in the studio or mastering or mixing services.
We also can play drums, bass, guitar, and add elements such as strings and beats for your trax.
This will be released on all digital download sites on Stillbliss records.
Please wait till about a week from now.
We hope for your safety and health during these troubled times!
Drink water, and stay well!
There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
The sun will return after every storm!
“WASPS DO NOT CARE” NEW SONG AVAILBALE SOON.
We just finished mastering Chris Commander’s new tune called “Wasps do not care” Which is a little ditty created for the pesty little flyers they are.
We used Sonar for recording and mixing. And for mastering we used IK-Multimedia’s T racks 3 standard edition.
We always offer this service for 20$ a track.
We are excited to see people using us as well as this new song from Chris Commander.
He will be releasing it very soon, all on our Independant label: Stillbliss Records.
Available (Very soon) on all digital download sites.
We had fun making it! We hope you enjoy it as well!
“WASPS DON`T CARE”, “BLAH, BLAH, BULLSH*T”
Nice to see you again!
Recently, we`ve been working with Chris Commander. He lives in Enlgand.
But, he has a small studio with a mic and DAW.
He recently has been sending us STEM`s to his two new aforementioned, in the Title Songs.
Recently it`s mainly been about Wasps, and how they don`t care about Shi%. And the recent Corvid Sh*tz, and how the Politicians are using the virus as a platform for their BullShi%.
Anyways, Chris pays us what he wants (Accordingly) for our expertise, and time.
And that is the recent Studios news. We also recently helped Indie Punk Band Slingshotmillion2 With writing English Lyrics for one of their original tunes.
Ok! Peeps, bliss out!
Summer is almost here!
Get out in the sun that is shining down on us these days!
Welcome to our little slice of heaven!
With Mrs.Covid screwing up our lives, there’s really nothing to do but get creative, making videos and hanging out inside.
STUDIO VIDEO TOUR 2020!
So, we have recently made a 2020 studio tour right here!
Here is a studio tour of our studios, here in Kanagawa in Japan.
If you ever wonder what keeps us going on, no matter what?
Well, blame it on our ADD!
Maybe we`re a different breed. But honestly today`s session of two hours was a hell of a lot of fun. Got to record with Legend singer and songwriter Alfred Arroyo Jr.
We recorded just the guitars, acosutic, and bass as well as Classical, and electric.
We are still using Cakewalk`s Sonar DAW. 8.5. Running on a WINDOWS XP PC.
I mean if it works, why fix it right?
We are also working closely with music Aficionado Chris Commander, with his stems he sends us through the mail.
God bless his soul. He pays us well!
And we aren`t shutting down for as far as I can tell!
Another “normal” day here at Stillbliss!
Just, another day, here at the studios..
#boutiquegear #blacklionaudio #neve1073 #bla173 #b12aquad #cinemagtransformers #edcoretransformers #classleadinpreamps
“BABY COW IN A FIELD”, AND “DOWN TO MY BED”.
We don`t choose how much we are paid. We just work for you and you decide what you want to pay me for my time.
That is what has been happening for the longest time between us and Chris Commander.
He lives all the way in the UK. He send`s us Stems from his studio, that he has recorded, then we run the stems through our analogue gear, and mix the songs with waves plugins.
We also use auto tune on the voice if needed. And replay the tracks if they need some TLC.
We have also recently been getting emails from singers saying they don`t have money to come to record.
Well, you either gotta be REAL GOOD to win us over. But for now, we just work on what comes to our doorstep, or through the internet mail.
So, just today I ran the STEMS for Chris Commander for his songs called “Baby Cow In A Field” And “Down To My Bed” Through the BLA 173, FMR audio PBC6a combo.
Baby Cow in a Field needed one more stem which he sent through Dropbox. Which is what we have been using with Chris for a long time now.
All that to say, we wish you well in this difficult time, because of the fear.
But fear not. You will not get bitten by the snake. As long as you don`t step on him.
So, anyways, stay cool, stay fit, and stay warm folks. Weird weather these days!
“SISTER JUDAS” & “VERONICA AND THE SUNSET” BY CHRIS COMMANDER. PERSONAL SESSIONS.
Well with the panicking happening about the Covid thingy, I`m finding myself more excited about the fact that we have a working studio here in Kanagawa.
I know this won`t last forever. Nothing does.
So, Without further nonsensical posts, here goes about the recent studio work.
Chris Commander recently asked me to finalize a track called “Sister Judas”. We had a problem with my previous DAW shutting down. So he asked another studio for the files, and found them. We were working on that today. As well as a new song called, “Veronica And The Sunset”. We played real drums for this tune.
So, stay tuned for these banger`s in the future!
This was all done in Sonar 8.5.
We`ve been using the BLA 173, PBC 6a Combo for warming things up. We run the quieter tracks through this signal chain re-amping stems that our clients send us.
So, yeah, we have been busy.
Drank a cup a joe,
and am writing this out for you to understand what we do here at Stillbliss.
Thanks for reading this far!
Enjoy your day/night. OK?!
THE “CORONA SHAKE”. AVAILABLE FOR LISTENING!
Dear reader and fan of this blog, thank you for coming here in your busy time. Right now with this scare, everyone is all couped up in their rooms.
So, with that in mind why not give Chris Commander`s new tune a whirl?
Here is the song on YouTube!
You know, honestly, have you actually had any family member have Corona Virus? Nope right? Well, it`s just a media created fear. I hope you stay positive and not fear, for the future is as bright as the promises of God!
Enjoy your day people! And stay Blissed out!
“THE CORONA SHAKE” SONG AVAILABLE SOON!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of working on Chris Commander`s new tune called “The Corona Shake”.
I added a synth, bass, Guitars, and a beat, ran the stereo drums through the BLA 173. it really kicked the levels up quite a notch. The drums were lacking punch and volume. So with the BLA 173 PBC 6A Combo, we really added that extra silky smooth 1073 neve sound to the whole track.
We usually ask for 100$ for mixing a whole song. But I did this for Chris, as he is a very good client of ours and pays us well.
So, he is in the middle of redoing the vocals for this song.
I also added some acoustic playing for three acoustic songs of his acoustic numbers called:
“If this is peace”, “Smiling in the sun” and “Running Low”.
We mixed and sent off the mp3`s to him. now we just wait for him to answer us.
Thank you Chris, and thank you for reading, and tuning into our blissful channel.
He will be using Stillbliss Records as his label for release. So will Fando, after he contacts us about his mixes we sent him recently.
Bliss out folks!
Just sitting in my flat. #andywarhol #rox.
ROCK ON! FANDO..!
That`s our new artists name who came today to work on some tracks of his.
He brought over a lotsa stringed up small guitar and his backpack Martin all on his steady little bike.
We had about a good three hours of good fun!
After his album, which is Called `Tokyo Sessions` is Mastered here, he will use Stillbliss Records as his label!
All good fun!
Enjoy! You blissed out folk!
WHAT`S POP THESE DAYS, POST.
So, first off, this IS a Studio`s blog.
So if you want to know what we`ve been up to these past few years, then this is the post you want to read today.
With the Covid19/Corona virus, and people panic buying, there ain`t no time for tunes. But honestly Chris Commander made a song called “Corona Virus (The Song)” for this pandemic.
Here is the youtube video.
We`ve also been spending time with family as well as washing our hands and gargling after going outside.
So, we really wish that you can come over to our studio`s.
Very soon we will be recording Fando. An artist with a backpack Martin guitar, who works for CocaCola.
Whattaya know! We have retro written all over us.
He- Fando, is a Singersongwriter.
He came from Argentina. Lived in Australia, and now is living here in Japan.
We don`t know for how much longer this outbreak will be but we hope you all are washing your hands and gargling after you`ve gone out of your house.
And stay up to date by staying blissed out and visit our blog for things POP!!
CHRIS LARKE WITH SOME BAD LYRICS!
Gonna be a whopper I tell ya!
He`s getting into the deep zone here with his take on the Corona Virus.
Yes! You heard me right. He wrote a song for the outbreak we are having here on this earth.
Yes, it might be scary, but actually it`s just a hoax that the media is trying to amplify the situation.
Yes there is Influenza, but still, just wash your hands and gargle when you get back home.
Honestly, is there anything more difficult then that?
Here in Japan, almost everyone is wearing a mask of some sorts.
It`s all over the news, wherever you look.
But honestly good people. Do we really need this histeria?!
That, is where Chris comes in with the soon to be released on Stillbliss Records: “The Corona Virus song/remix”.
This is actually a new take on his hit song, “Pretty Bitches”. Which is on his Going For the Pop Jugular EP.
This is a Remix using synths and beats from Sonar 8.5 Producer edition.
We ran his tracks through the creamy BLA 173. And that sorta heated up his tracks that he recorded at home.
For the most part we usually leave the tracks that we get alone. But these tracks could use some analogue juice. So we went for that option.
Anyways, keep an eye out for the soon to be released, “Corona Virus Song” From Chris Ekral/Commander/Larke.
Peace out brothers n` sisters!
FANDO- `TOKYO SESSIONS`, NEW EP SOON RELEASED. AND `CLOSER` DETAILS.
