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!Continue reading →

After we already had the drums and bass recorded on tape, we worked on the guitar parts for the new “Unique” song that is produced in the context of our current EP project. We ended up recording single notes for the verses along with rhythm tracks for the rest of the arrangement that give the song a decent funky “flavour”. For some of our followers, the recorded guitar material will be a nostalgic flashback to the late 70s/early 80s. As known for our production documentaries, we will briefly go through the signal flow and used equipment to achieve the sound you will finally hear on the record.Continue reading →

Enjoy a lovely winter sports season in Austria, Switzerland, Italy or elsewhere.

Recording music in the Internet age is not a lucrative business anymore. The nature of today’s popular streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and TIDAL cause that most artists and songwriters beyond the world’s top 10 artists make very little money directly from their music.
Vezt is the first blockchain-based mobile app where music fans can acquire rights in their favourite songs. It claims to be a new reasonable income stream for creatives. Let us take a closer look at the app’s concept and find out what is it all about.
The editing of the shouter vocals was done, and we already proceeded with the mixdown of the entire song. But the missing piece of the puzzle was the clean vocalist that sings the melodic, pop-ish chorus and a few other parts together with the shouter. When you missed the previous article that describes our shouter vocal recording with Kim Rese, feel free to check this out here before continue reading this article.
A long time passed until we could find a suitable collaborator that met our expectations sound- and skill-wise. We finally got a great singer/songwriter with a long-lasting recording and touring career involved in the modern rock project. Let me tell you more about who our collaborator is and how we recorded his clean vocals for “Come Back”.
While my favourite gym playlist still is “Power Rock Hooks” that is steadily complemented with new hard-hitting rock tracks, there are days when I prefer to listen to some Hip-Hop to push myself to the limit during my workout session. Therefore, I like to share my new urban music playlist “Iron Pump” with you. Enjoy the playlist and your upcoming workout. Cheers!Continue reading →
Bouncing 808s, hectic Hi-Hat and high-pitched snare rolls along with ambient synths, are frequently used in the contemporary urban music scene. In the time where Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B are very present on the top of the Billboard charts, at the Grammy Awards and major festivals, you recognise what stylistic and societal changes those genres went through the last decades. AlbrechtProductions created another song collection named “Trap Warriors” that is – as known for the blog – available on Spotify.Continue reading →
