"UK Rap – Streets of London" Spotify Playlist

UK Rap - Streets of London

Lately, the Brexit came true. However, the exact outcome of that situation will be revealed later when the European Union and the UK will realise that many things need to be adjusted and will then initiate further steps. During my master studies in London, we talked a lot of the Brexit at university and its negative influence on the creative industries – in particular, the music business in my case. Regardless of the politics and their actions, I hope that the music industry tries to minimise the damage caused by the Brexit all together so it will not influence the international touring and collaboration that significantly. While we observe the next steps of music industry executives and politicians, we can enjoy the hottest tracks of UK’s rap scene – all collected in my new Spotify playlist “UK Rap – Streets of London”. Have fun listening!

“Unique” Horn Section Recording

Unique Horn Section Recording

After we successfully recorded the electric piano, organ and Moog parts of “Unique” with the German jazz pianist Andreas Theobald, we let rest the production for a few weeks. Playing it back after the break that was used to concentrate on other tasks related to the producer concept EP, we had the feeling that a particular element was missing to complete the song as we envisioned it originally. After a moment’s consideration, we decided that the song needs a real horn section to take the song to the next level and to finalise it. We are more than happy to tell you that we were able to work with a professional horn section called Triple H Horns from the United Kingdom that did a stunning job! In the following, learn more about the guys behind Triple H Horns and how we recorded saxophone, trumpet and trombone for “Unique”.
