Note: Said it loads of times already. My Compa remix will not be released digitally. FYI
Yesterday I went to the big bad smoke to get the next release mastered. As usual with these things I prepared the tracks a few days in advance, but then spent about 3 hours the evening before fiddling with the mix down. I’m not sure you can ever be 100% happy with these things. Having a bunch of mastering sessions under my belt I know more or less what can and can’t be done with the final track so have a good idea what I’m aiming for.
It’s usually a quite stressful day, travelling for 3 + hours hoping the final track in your pocket (memory stick) is going to be OK.? Having worked with Beau @ Ten Eight Seven on all the previous release, (except 002), we generally have a good laugh and he knows how to nice up the track. That initial play of your tune in the mastering suite is a mixture of elation and dread. Scrutinising that thing you’ve put so much love into. If you’ve never been to a mastering house, nothing can prepare you for how sick or not, your tunes will sound. I think it is possibly the ultimate listening environment.
Anyway. Lead track “Don’t Start” I have to say sounds awesome! I take myself into fan mode in this situation. After all I’m ultimately trying to make music I want to hear that no one else is making. The “Security Remix”, I now sounds good as I had it cut to dubplate by Beau 12 months ago. I’m really pleased with these tunes and cant wait to listen to the final vinyl when they land in a couple of weeks.
I’ve opted to press only 60 copies. 26 have gone to the kickstarter supporters with the remaining being split between BM-Soho and the Area Recordings store. This will not be repressed and once they are sold, thats that. I’m glad the remix is only on the vinyl. As long as I continue to put out tunes this will be the new format.
here is a picture of “Don’t Start” as it begins getting cut onto the laquer.
