My latest work is on a production with a 13 year old singer called Chantelle Lee – I wrote & produced the track and the video whilst she provided lyrics and did all of the vocal work. Mixing and mastering this one for radio play was very tricky – but I got there in the end!
The track has been chosen by Movistar as the official track for Alex Dowsett’s Perfect Hour world record attempt – it takes place on the 27th February and Chantelle and I will be performing this track live. I’ll also be doing an hours DJ set during the attempt.
This track is slightly different to the usual stuff that I make as it has that typical Katy Perry pop vibe, with slightly retuned rock guitars, punchy drums and 70s synths. Influence on this track came from a mix of Bon Jovi and modern pop material. Take a listen below:
The final production ended up with over 120 stems (excluding vocals!) and Chantelle did an excellent job on her ad libs towards the end of the track.
Chantelle and I are working on a full 10 track album, ranging from catchy-chorus Katy Perry pop down to belting out Leona Lewis-esque ballads – so many more tracks to come from this talented singer!
We’re hoping this one’s a hit. #PerfectHour on twitter – spread the word!
