Trying out something new here. This is something that was requested on Facebook. If popular, I’m going to start posting vocals, stems and remix packs from classic and new tracks of mine.
This first one is very special. Jan and I sat around an old rickety Steinway piano in Planet 4 studios in Manchester. It was in our first hour meeting, we began with some proper english breakfast tea and sat down to write. Unknowingly, I was playing (in a 5 chord sequence) the first two chords from Chopin’s 20th Prelude in C minor *cool to check out*. This began the first of many beautiful collaborations together.
One of the cool early vocal tricks I came up with on this song you can do yourself and compare to the original recording. I did on this track it making a reverb throw where pre-reverb I pitched the vocal up a fifth. You can try this yourself in any DAW by making a bus with a pitch shifter set to +7 (fully wet) and a long hall reverb (try about 8-10sec) also fully wet. When we did this, it was suffice to say MUCH harder (involving piles of patch cables and outboard gear). It’s a super cool effect.
I’ve gone too far with this. Taken a perfectly fine (fun) Treasure Fingers song “It’s Love”, and probably pushed it past decency, but isn’t that perhaps the point? He is playing in Los Angeles tonight so cheers to him and I hope you all enjoy the twisted results (best with sub-bass listening)
Yeah yeah so here’s one of the last tracks I’ve been keeping locked up in the vault before I hit the studio to record a fresh batch of all-new songs. Beat produced by Deceo Ellipsis, recorded vox with Brother Josef and mixed by The Stunt Man.
