Paranormal

Now this has been out for a while and is now on Netflix, I think it’s okay to put it up here, and it doesn’t give away any jokes, so it should be safe, BUT, you are going to want to turn it off at around 2 min. Trust me. a-haunted-house-movie-poster-1

There’s a cue missing from the above .MOV file, no idea why, but here’s the vocal version of the track in the cue. This version went on the soundtrack and has my Beverly Hills buddy Matt Kahn, doing a rap in full London cockney, with all the correct intonations, especially “get the fuck up”, and it’s funny, because he’s LA born and bred. His ‘artist name’ for this is Winston Cartier and it is entirely his invention. On top of my track The Grind, which was used in a ‘character does mad things in the middle of the night’ scenario. Also on the soundtrack album, but not used in the film, “Hey Now” from my good friend, James Langford, who’s straight outa South Central and is one of the sweetest guys you could ever meet. And, by far, the best rapper I know. Ah the injustice of this world/industry. Soon come.

 

Phat Non Stop Liam Neeson

Non-Stop-2014-Movie-Poster-650x1029

Why anyone would want a track like this for a Liam Neeson Taken type movie is beyond me.  It must have been something to do with the lyrics. “mister lover, lover, you thought there was only one Barry White, but there’s another, that’s me you see sittin in the place, stuffin my face, Ihop, McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, I’d like to see some sucker try and take it from me….PHAT” Far out. One of my best tracks yet and comes from an album called “Kill All Billionaires”. Release pending.

Tracers. A “parkour” movie. ???.

Dayum!

This was a fairly easy job. Except for the fact that I went into my booth for 10 nights and blew out my voice.  We want Imagine Dragons they say. Yeh doesn’t everybody I say. What the hell, like, doesn’t anyone know the energy levels that go into a vocal like that? Imagine having to tour and sing like that every night.  Anyway, I got one of three placements. The “Hey Mister”, used under who-knows-what circumstances.


 

Chips Ahoy “Don’t Stop” Alts

My favorite out take/alt is Don’t Stop 02 Kitty, up the top, in at number one. Kitty Pipatcharoenkij is Thai, but I never heard someone from Thailand sing with so much soul. Or is it pain. Either way, it sounds good.  By far my second favorite is “Dont Stop 07 Laura r1” which is me, Rei and Laura doing the 80’s rap treatment, as per requested, in fact I think it was a 90’s rap type that was requested but we went totally 80s.  Recording the vocals on that version was one of those, ‘this is why being in a recording studio is so much fun’ moments!
