New recordings wanted, LFO review in German, artists on the block
Because of our newest gear (remember Oktava and SPL amongst them) we would be really excited about recording new stuff, so contact us for that immediately. Because the only thing that matter to us is the quality of your music you might put budget problems aside and just write us an email. Another thing we want to share is this review by Alessandro on his borderline-fuckup-blog, written in German language. Being more into Hardcore/Punk the author at first felt somehow weird about reviewing electronic music but gave it a try nonetheless. Thank you for that! And because we’re into the HC/Punk thing as well (at least recording-wise) we hope to see more of those bands around in the future.
Reviews, ongoing recordings, electronic jams
Jacob’s album (see last post) received positive reviews all the way through – for those check Uncanny Valley’s homepage and Mr. Korn’s own. Nearly as well (but remaining totally off-mainstream): Reviews on The Cold View’s “Weeping Winter” you’ll find here, here and there and on their homepage as well. There’s even an interview on a blog called DarkUndergroundMusicZine – I wish all those blogs would have specific names like that (which they actually do). So far for the past …
The Cold View & Searching for colleagues to join forces (meaning: to rent a room)
Digital Funeral Drone Doom project The Cold View asked for mixing and mastering from the block, so we did that in analog manner, cranking it all up. And maybe one day you will hear what it sounds like, meanwhile TCV is searching for a label … Please help’em out. As we help out others: New stuff to record, mix and master is on the way, different parties involved, and even some old friends will drop by again?
New tracks uploaded, Demo-CD released
First things first: June/July will be a busy time for us, so if you'd like us to record/produce/mix your stuff any time soon, you better hurry. Second (but winner of all hearts): Back in February, when the winter revealed his true face yet again, the brave Squiggles recorded 10 tracks in two days. It was all live in one room, all amps turned to the wall, drums surrounded by some dash panels - still loud as hell. Surprisingly the seperation of all these instruments went really well, so no problems during mix sessions later. We tried analog mixing with the band listening to it right away, that partially worked out but sometimes it did not. So we ended up mixing stems in the box, then summing those on the X-Desk with some dbx, Toft and Prime compression to it.
As there is nothing in particular to announce before holidays
Any sexual implications here? And this is just a catalogue cover from Primo Microphones around 1980. Got this from Preservation Sound, a marvelous blog. Wish I could make a record over there at Gold Coast Recorders, that’s the guy’s studio. But I’ll stay here in Berlin watching Christian produce The Gash’s next demo album instead. And helping them out of course, using a bunch of classic dynamics (M88 TG, M201N, N/D868, GDM 316, e 840, MD 421, MD 441, 565 SD, SM57). Though probably not as sexy as Primo’s these are the ones I’d really liked to have.
Record Store Day in Berlin, Probezeit in the studio
Mastering and mixing electronic music used to be our main business so far, that said we’re more than happy to start with serious recordings now. Probezeit is the name, punk emo rock the game, we’ll upload their songs as soon as the mix is done. And maybe we’ll even get some video footage ready, at least we saw a camera around during session. All in all we had a very good time – thank you guys! Man, I love those Gretsch bass drums.
