MAIN CONTEST

 

This month, we have an AMAZING pop production from Tourna-mix member Michael Leto.  “Ghosts and Zombies” was released a while back under the band name “Petty Party”, as a part of a college graduation project.  I was so thrilled when I heard this tune, and absolutely loved mixing it!  I’m sure I speak on behalf of all of us when I say, “Thanks Michael!”  The arrangement is SO dialled in, that at times I personally felt it was almost like “mix by numbers” LOL.  Whether you record in a pro studio or a dorm room, the power of a great song, great arrangement, and great vocal (courtesy of Bruna Victoria) will always stand out.  Enjoy!

 

A word from Michael Leto:

“Hey guys, I’m super excited to see what y’all do with this recording!  “Ghosts and Zombies” is the definition of bedroom pop…it was written, recorded, and mixed in a college dorm room, as was the rest of the album it’s off of, much to the annoyment of my 4 roommates.  I made some production choices during the mix, which you’ll all be able to hear if you compare the final mix to the stems, and I hope that you guys feel the liberty to make production choices like that as well!  This’ll be great; I’m super excited!”
