Flirt With Danger Mini-album Review

Reviewed here

"The Mini​-​album is a dirty, raw album that is the spirit of CBGB, the Cramps and all thing rock n’ roll. It has a punk aesthetic to it in a lot of ways despite the various genres it integrates."

Flirt With Danger mini-album

The Flirt With Danger mini-album is available on pre-release at:

If you're outside the UK, with the weakness of sterling, it will cost you precious little.

Created in my own studio, The Space Underground, and professionally mastered at Metropolis Mastering.

Features the following amazing atompunk neo-rockabilly tracks:
  • Even Spooks Need To Rock & Roll
  • Bikini Atoll Surfer Dude
  • Dirty Monkey
  • Dr Manhatten
  • The Mafia Stole My House
  • Silicone Sex Doll (Turned Terminator)

Idea for tape loop simulation in Logic Pro

Make up a short section of music, say, 13 seconds. Copy, mix differently and chop to 11 seconds. Bounce then pull both back in to new project as separate tracks and loop. Will drift out of sync and re-sync at 13 x 11 secs at 2 mins 23 secs, so that's as much as needed.

version 1: kick, hats, odd guitar chord and synth sounds that throw up odd squalls
version 2: rhythmic moog synth sequence with a couple of atmospheric sounds on top

Improved microphone setup

Added a SE Electronics RF-X Reflexion filter and an Oktava 319 mic to the setup, resulting in a far better vocal sound as witnessed in this song, Urban Wildlife. Would be better still if I could sing! The Oktava goes through an existing Black Lion Audio Auteur pre-amp and a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 audio interface.

Real problem with the new setup was having a European-standard mic stand, into an American-standard reflection filter and onto a European-standard shockmount supporting a Russian-standard mic, each standard having different diameter fittings, so it's adapters all the way round.

Presence controls

Have to admit I never knew what they actually do but here's a good, clear explanation.

When playing an amp cleanly, increasing the presence control simply results in more upper midrange and treble.
When pushing an amp into distortion, though, the presence control behaves differently. It changes the “texture” of the distortion and adds complexity to the sound, making the amp feel a little “less predictable” for higher notes.
