New Song Finished
Touch is in the can! Which means I’m happier to start talking about it. That’s right, the mix is off to the mastering engineer and will be back in my nimble lanky fingers within 24 hours! Actually I already hear a mastered version but opted to tweak a few things about the mix before putting the fork in it. Happily the mastering engineer is going to rerun it for mastering.
Who Was Involved
Touch as it’s called, was written by yours truly. That means I created all the music and vocal melodies, plus the lyrics.
The rapper is a bloke from Los Angeles who goes by the name Jacarri. He did tweak some of my lyrics I. The bridge to better suit his flow.
The idea for using a rapper in the bridge of the song came from Brian Austin Whitney.
My partner in crime in making the recording sound insanely great is George Leger III.
The awesome mastering is done by the infamous John Rodd.
Who Did What
For the recording of guitars, bass, drum programming, mouth noises, synths and other FX – I put on my alter ego hats and laid down parts for each. I also did an enormous amount of singing over the course of 4 days. Also did the final touches of the releasing mix. It added up to a few tracks north of 100 tracks in the mix. Largest mis I’ve ever done.
George did some additional drum tweaking, sound switching, vocal engineering, and some other various things. He also did some premixing on the track.
Jacarri brought some rapping skills to the tune.
John Rodd brought the final mastering touches.
I have to thank George, John and Jacarri for putting in some fantastic work on making this song as awesome as possible. Plus I need to thank a bunch of people who took valuable time to sit and listen to various mixes to determine which one should be the released version of the song.
I’m getting a real fuzzy feeling about the whole thing. I get even warmer thinking about how hot the video is going to be.
