February 12, 2010

Hi there everyone

I know it’s been a long time since I blogged anything. Been working on my live set for this year!

Inbetween that and eating, i’ve done this remix for my mate Rob Cowen & The Dissidents. The track is called City Lights and the original is a belter! (http://www.myspace.com/robcowen)

As you’ll find on my downloads page (http://www.jamesyuill.com/download.htm) I also did a remix of his first single Heartache.

City Lights comes on on Self Raising Records on the 14th April so until then…here’s my remix

PC Sound Recorder

Hi Guys,
I was randomly going through my PC for samples and bits I’d downloaded from the internet ages ago and I stumbled on a project I did ages ago.
It was the winter of 2005. I had moved out of a friends house into a crappy bedsit down Goldhawk Road.
I didn’t have a mac at that time and I was without any music making facilities for three months – or so I thought…
I discovered the joy that is PC Sound Recorder. Every PC has it. So I challanged myself to make music on it.
This was massively painstaking. I had to work out what the bpm was first and then chop the tracks and samples into beats and sub beats. these were then added together using the various functions on the programme. to do a full 4 bars I’d have to have a loop then go through and merge every sample at it’s specific time depending on the bpm of course!
It took ages. To make things easier I could play in some keyboards but I’d have to sample up each note, then merge it into the piece.
I did a jamie lidell remix using this technique (obviously unofficial!) but I had to chop the song into bits and then merge them with drum beats etc. and piece them together.
Anyway…to cut a long story short. I’ve put the old site on the back of my website.
Enjoy!
(i might even have a picture of me in the bedsit…I’ll try and find it)
