PREVIEW: MELLOW MOOD BY WILLIAM CLINE BAILEY
Updated: Jul 10, 2021
We are very excited to share this studio video preview of NEW track, "Mellow Mood" by William Cline-Bailey from his upcoming EP Rapture.
Set to be “officially” released on 30th July 2021 on all your favourite digital music stores, this 4 track EP has been recorded, mixed and mastered (including video capture and production) by Beckview Studios.
We captured the recording process on our Blackmagic multi-camera setup during the live recording sessions for the EP.
William wanted his EP to have a good groove with a feeling of interaction between himself and the session players. To achieve this we rehearsed the tracks, and then recorded the core instruments together for each track on the EP. We re-recorded the tracks until we had the ‘golden’ take.
Once the ‘golden take’ was laid down, we then built the track up by overdubbing the additional and supplementary instruments. We didn’t want to over complicate the arrangements so only added what was needed to augment the core take. We worked on one song at a time (two songs per session).
In this studio video you can see that the players started with the core instruments of drums, bass, keys, guitar and trumpet. We then captured the congas, keys and other percussion instruments afterwards in the overdubs.
