I Am In Love press release with Rise and Demise remix

The remix I completed is going out on Robot Needs Home records in April as a B-Side. Here’s the press release:

‘We are delighted to announce that due to unprecedented national press and radio attention (details TBA), I AM IN LOVE, will be releasing, ‘I Want You’, as their debut single slightly earlier than planned, through their good friends Robot Needs Home Records. The track and two B-Sides including the Rise and Demise of John mix (Make Recordings) will be available from itunes and all good online retailers from 25th April 2011′

As someone who’s knocking on a bit (37 don’t you know, sonny) it’s nice to watch a band with momentum. It takes me back to bands I’ve been in moons ago: always planning the next gig, recording or art. These are amazing times to be in a band. Being in an organised band with tunes is the best.

Good luck to em!

I love the Robot Needs Home logo, by the way.

This is Hopeless

A sneaky peek at the WAA single we’re plugging pre album launch.

The track holds a special place in my heart. It was the first track we wrote together, and actually the only one John and I wrote in the same room. The main parts of this started around 7 years ago. John came round to my studio and we, ahem, ‘jammed’ to a beat with glockenspiel, twinkly piano, bass and Mattel drum machine.

Initially we mixed it as an instrumental, but when we started the WAA project we dusted it off and John wrote some words. It’s perhaps the strongest song in the traditional sense we’ve written, and I love the warmth it emits.

I’m not entirely sure what John’s singing about, but I like the general feeling it gives me. I’m proud as anything to have been involved in it.

John did the video for this, too.

We are officially start pushing this next monday, I think, but for now, enjoy.

There’s a remix, too, which I knocked a video up for. The remix is super sexy. John did this as his sprlnr alter-ego. I did a little mixing and mastering on it as well as some BVs. This will be the second track of the free download version of ‘Hopeless’. Really hope you like them both.

Dec 23rd Jamie Says vid and Sprlnr remix

Knocked a video out for the Jamie Says remix I did. Here’s the method: Search using ‘Static’ as keyword, download low viewed video. Pop in Imovie. Fiddle (for 2 minutes). Done.

Hardly Anton Corbijn but it’ll do.

John R did this ace remix of a WAA track under his sprlnr guise. Vocal was a little bolted on to the music so I asked him to email me the music and vocals separately to allow me to place better. A bit of EQ and compression with some subtle delays sorted it out. Ideally I’d have had the Logic project but I didn’t want to alter it too much… and with the project I’d have tweaked til the cows came home and probably have murdered it.

You’ll hear it early next year, but it’s sexy as anything.
