Drake – Fake Love (Jovel Refix)

img_9838Ive started doing weekly refixes again just to shake the frustration of recording without being allowed to put anything out and this week I did Drakes ‘Fake love.’ I Usuall remake everything from scratch but as a friend of mine where the exact samples were from, the beat sounds near identical. the only thing I didnt nail were the sub drums but whatever. I reeeally regret not adding guitars too, but I was a bit short on time with it, I rewrote all the lyrics as always though, and I even had my first try at adobe after effects ro make the moving vid, so thats something lol.

Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it. till next week!

Studio Sesh With The Faulkners

img_9815For some reason Ive always had this stigma looming over me suggesting that musically I want it all to come from me and me alone; the music, lyrics, production, the whole shebang. The reality however is that I’m someone that likes to get things done really quickly, so if I’m working on a project, I’m on in day and night, 24/7. In the past I would reach out to either a producer or writer and they’d be down to work, but just getting on the same page just seems to take SOOOOO long I end up finishing the whole thing before they even get stuck in! Now over the year I’ve been working on a MASSIVE three part project, the first part being my void ep, and riiiight when I’m at the last hurdle something amazing happened. yes, Ive actually been collaborating, the curse is broken.

Now while this isn’t the first collab I’ve done for this project, its the first I remembered to document because I’m one of those silly people that like to live life and experience sights with my own eyes instead of behind a screen. On wednesday I went to the studio of Newton Faulkner, the platinum selling- super talented singer songwriter and his equally talented brother Toby Faulkner who’s also a super songwriter.

Their studio is a crazy as they are and we made a big start on two songs in only a few hours which awesome. Newtons best known for being a guitarist but damn, the man can play almost everything, and he’s got some of the weirdest instruments I’ve ever seen, including this weird synth in a box thingy with wooden buttons. you can see a vid of him playing it over on my instagram so check that out (the insta link is in my banner)

So yeah, not a bad little sesh! i’ll be sure to do better and remember to document what I do with my days as it is pretty fun, thats probably what makes it so difficult in the first place now that I think about it!

The New Nintendo Switch Is Like 4 Consoles In One

nintendo-switch
Nintendo just released a video of its new Switch console, the console previously known as the NX. The system can be played with wireless controllers and act as a traditional home console when plugged into its base, but when removed from its base it transforms into a portable gaming console with two removable game controllers attached to each side. Tired of holding the thing? Flip out the screen’s stand, remove the controllers from the sides, and you can play it play it without having to hold it (I assume it weighs a fair amount). The video also shows the thing running Skyrim, so that’s something.

I aint gonna lie, this is a pretty sick concept, but unless a good few mates catch on, you’ll just be the guy with ‘the new nintendo thing’ when your peoples come round and thats about it… I think ill wait and see before I splurge

Back Like I never Left

jovel_final-20-copyFirst I was gonna wait till the new year before re-starting my blog. You know, new year new start and all that, but lets be honest, most of that new years resolution crap barely makes it till the end of the month, so i thought id have a better chance of sticking to it by kicking it off riiiiight now. So yeah, ze blogiddy has returned! As well as the usual gadgetry, anime, music, movies and general nerdy stuff that I used to blog, we’ve also grown the hell up andhave some proper ish to add!

Obviously being a musician, I posted about the key events and releases I put out here and there, as that was the initial purpose of the blog! But mixed with all the cool stuff I found it all got a bit fuzzy and random to say the least. Well not any more! My musics really starting to pick up (more on that later) and Ive had literally tonnes of people asking for recipes for some of the meals I whip up, so I decided to make the three solid corner stones of music, cooking & cool/nerdy shit more organised and keep rotating like a rotisserie chicken in this biatch.

If you’re new to the blog, this is doesn’t reeeally apply to you, but here, have a big warm welcome, first ones free. To my regular visitors and subscribers, sorry for the long ting, but I’m back, for good, I promise and a massive thank you for being patent with me. Alright, enough soppy shit, lets get back to it!
