Another new single just dropped from Almost Unique, produced by me!!
This one has been around since about 2021, but in a completely different style. The lyrics were pretty much exactly the same, but the production was much more electronic, whereas this version, while still very electronic, is much more rock influenced. There wasn’t a single electric guitar on the original version, and now most of the track count is made up of electric guitars!
Almost Unique is back making new music! A few weeks ago she dropped her new single, “Something Called Disconnection”, which was produced and mixed by yours truly.
This is quite a change from our earlier work together on the Sanctuary EP, with a more rock oriented sound and more guitars going on. Hope you enjoy!
H-Streets dropped his latest single “Under The Sun” a few weeks ago. I mixed this track around this time last year, and I remember finishing the mix and hoping that it wouldn’t be too long until this one dropped, because I had such a good time mixing this track. I mean, listen to it, It’s just so happy!
Almost Unique just released the Sanctuary EP, which features these two tracks, along with an alternative version of Break The Tie, and the title track, which has never previously been released.
All these tracks were produced remotely by Almost Unique and myself during the 2020/2021 lockdowns here in the UK. It was fun to look back at these tracks, especially “Sanctuary, which I personally haven’t heard in a very long time.
Speaking of Sanctuary, a big thank you to James Berry for his amazing choir presets used on this track. Go subscribe to him on YouTube!
All tracks on this EP were produced by Almost Unique and myself, and mixed by me.
This one has been in the works for a while, but was finally released today.
I was very kindly invited by ONJ (Andre Louis) and Born74 (Andrew Nicholas) to mix all four tracks on this EP.
Update: 14th April 2023
Track 1 from this EP, the title track, is Number 1 in the Jazz Scene: UK playlist on Apple Music!
I’ve been a big fan of the YouTube channel Logic Band for a while now, so was very excited to be asked to feature on it. At the start of 2023, we got together on a Zoom call and chatted about, well, everything. In fact, the Zoom call went for almost three hours.
So, enjoy this (slightly) shorter version of that chat, in which I talk about how I started out in music, we reminisce (if that’s the right word) about the old gear we used to use, and discuss some of our current favourite tools.
We also talk about mixing, producing and making music as blind/hearing impaired people.
Enjoy, and please don’t forget to like, comment, share, subscribe, and all the other stuff
Capping off 2022 by sharing this demo I recorded and mixed with Bradford rock singer/songwriter Alfie Underwood.
I was the engineer on this session, beginning by recording Alfie playing guitar and singing at the same time, before then layering up more layers of both. I also suggested repeating the “All That I Need” line with hard panned backing vocals to make the chorus stand out.
I mixed this demo too, which was a fun challenge as I don’t mix this kind of genre often, but we’re both really happy with the result.
Two tracks I mixed a few months back dropped last Friday, hence why they’re both covered in one post.
First up, Denise Barajas released Moving On. This is the first track I’ve mixed for Denise, and it was a lot of fun. I particularly love the drums on this tune, which have a very warm tone to them which I’ve tried to further bring out in the mix.
The bass is lovely on this track too, and there’s some brilliant keys work to be heard as well. Check It Out On Spotify
Up next, H-Streets dropped the latest single from his upcoming album, which is an extended version of his track Friday Night featuring Denise Barajas doing some more amazing keys work.
Again, the highlight of this mix for me were the wonderful drum layers, which really make the different sections of the song pop.
Having worked on a number of tracks on this album now, I can promise you, you don’t want to miss this album when it drops.
