Carrying on from last week with a new track called - “Send Your Heart To Me”, we now have another track which is almost complete and ready for the next stage. So far, it consists of electric guitar, bass, keyboards and drums and has an indie pop/rock feel to it. Again it is something different for us.

Working remotely over the internet, we now have the basics of three new songs - “Shadow Man”, “Love To Give” and “Send Your Heart To Me”. At the moment these songs have been recorded in a basic form. They have been stored so that when we get together, we can work on the tracks to finish them off. We also have one that is ready to mix.
In other news, I am putting together our previous album, “Funk-a-tronic”, which should have been released in 2019.

In today's session, time was mostly spent concentrating on the lyrics for “Shadow Man”. We have six verses, a rap and a middle eight. The next step is for me to record a rough versions the of the verses, the rap and the middle eight and send them over email to the studio. We can then carry on constructing the track whilst communicating using Skype.

Whilst we are in lock down as you know we are working remotely over Skype on some new tracks. We continue to work on “Shadow Man”. The structure of the track has come together quickly. Next, we need to work on some lyrics and record them.
I’ve also written some lyrics for a track which will be called “Love To Give” which will have a Jazz, Soul, Funk style genre.

Today, due to restrictions in place, we had our first remote recording session over the internet, coming up with a track that may be entitled “Shadow Man”. So far we have a basic intro, the first and second chorus and maybe a rap.

The new track, which will be called "Zenith Pt2" is nearly ready to mix. It is sounding big and bouncy and has a festival type feel mixing jazz and techno. Get ready for a dancefloor destroyer!

We have now finished converting all the data for the new track. The title of it will be "Zenith Pt2". So now we have done that, we have saved the data to a USB drive to take it to another computer to carry on developing the track. Meanwhile, I have the bare bones of a new track recorded.

We have nearly completed the first phase of recording. The next stage will be making sure we have converted all parts to audio and saving them to a DVD. We can then take the track and load it into another version of Cubase to carry on further programming with software synths.

Going forward with the new track, I have decided to call it “Zenith Pt 2”. We are nearing the first phase of production before we take it to the next stage which is where we can really make it shine. As mentioned earlier, It has some very funky jazz chords and a Drum and Bass loop included as it goes from dance into jazz, but I also want it to be a serious club/festival anthem.
