The 10 day countdown has begun yesterday, and what better way to kick off than this great review in Newcastle’s NARC.Magazine. Thanks guys!!
It’s been a while… Dmitry and Koos have finally emerged from their winter hibernation mixing in the Market Place home studio, so we can at last unveil the titles of 6 new singles due to be released over the coming weeks and months. Exciting stuff!
1 – Jonathan Livingston – with star guests the Northumbrian seagulls
2 – Migration – our first song, with Dmitry and Carol on vocals
3 – The Piper and the Frog – featuring Markus Bluesharp on, yes, you guessed it, the blues harp
4 – Cyber Funk – exactly what it says on the label
5 – Chicken and Egg – featuring no chickens
6 – City Folk – with a soundscape from Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Mixing is a complicated, delicate and time-consuming business,
But when you get it right, you know you’ve hit the spot!
Chris Longwood of SugarHill Recording Studios, Houston, mastered the tracks, and we’re all really pleased with the big sound he’s produced. When we found out Chris works on George Clinton’s tracks, we knew he’d be the guy for us!
So – watch this space for more clips, videos and stories, we’re delighted to share this exciting time with you!
We had a really productive time last week with Koos over from Friesland, the home studio was definitely well into the funk groove! As well as jamming and trying out new sounds, Dmitry and Koos polished two new tracks, recording live drums and key bass. With pre-production complete, the pieces are all set to go to the studio, so we’re looking into ways of funding the next stage. Any suggestions welcome 😉
