BONUS CONTEST

 

I am thrilled to be able to offer “Wild Wind” as our Bonus Mix Contest song this month!  Written by Ottawa songstress Shannon Rose, and produced by Ottawa engineer Dean Watson (both close personal friends of mine), “Wild Wind” features lovely vocal layers by one of the best singers I’ve ever met.  Shannon is the definition of a “natural” when it comes to singing, and is a joy to mix.  In this song, the lead vocal is layered 6 times, which gives you loads of freedom to implement these layers as you see fit.  Despite the simple arrangement, this song really fills up my speakers when I play it and I just know you’ll all have this song stuck in your head for a while!   Good luck and enjoy 🙂

SEPT 2022: “NEXT TO YOU”

MIX CONTEST #1   I think this song might have the best recorded vocals we’ve had so far at T-M.  In fact, the entire production is super well recorded – one might say a “no excuses” mixing scenario (although like any mix, it has its challenges!).  “Next to you” was produced by Chris Cassriel and…...

MIX CONTEST #2   I detect a faint hint of bitterness in this tune – idk, maybe it’s just me 😉  I also detect a heavy dollop of awesome, so buckle up and enjoy mixing “Ex Marks The Bitch” by Mango Jaguar, produced by T-M member Orcun Ayata.  IMO, this song doesn’t fit into an......
