RBR Update

I had the pleasure of being on the Alternative MK radio show this week with Lee James Grote, we had a quick chat and I played a few songs in the studio including new tracks Poster Boy and Unexploded which will be on the new EP. I arrive at about 58:45 on the show…

Stuff and Things…

Hello, just wanted to give a quick update on a few bits. I’m still working on my new EP “Unless and Until” I’m very happy with the sound of it but there’s still a fair bit of work to do.

Current remix I’m working on is for Gwen and the Goodthing, it’s a version of their excellent track “You’ve Fallen For It”, should be finished in April.

I’m also doing a new version of my track Sometimer because my friends at Art Studio 14 have been working their visual magic again. I can’t wait to share their work with you.

Candidates RBR Remix

Here is my latest remix for you. This time it’s Watch You Fall by Candidates.

The original track can be found on their EP1 release.

The offical video for the original is here:

More information on Candidates can be found here:

This remix was a lot of fun to do. I know that Steve and the band are pretty big Oasis fans so it seemed to me the best thing to do was to go down kind of Setting Sun by Chemical Brothers route. Many of the sounds in this mix are manipulated bits of the original guitar parts, some of it reversed, some is tuned down, some is chopped up, spun around and played in a different order, then I added some beats and a few synths here and there. I took the literal meaning of the song title and added in audio from a sky dive pilot radio which I think really helps drive the track along then one of the last sounds you here is a parachute opening. For Steve’s vocal I used some saturation and delay for added aggression and to help it cut through all the extra noises and beats I added. Being a child of the 80s I couldn’t resist chopping up the vocals for the middle section.

Anyway, there’s loads of stuff in the track, as always if you’re interested to know more about any of it just let me know.

Enjoy.

Happy January

Hello.  There’s plenty going on here with Rise Bailey Rise.  The Xmas party at the Sunset Lounge last month was an excellent night and it gave me the chance to try looping with an electric guitar for the first time.

I was back there again a couple of weeks ago to film a live acoustic version of a song for their Sunset Lounge Sessions series. I look forward to seeing the final edit.

I’m part way through writing and recording demos for my new EP “Unless and Until” I’m hoping to get it ready for release in the spring. I’m nearly ready to release my latest RBR remix, this time it’s the excellent “Watch You Fall” by Candidates. I’m also working on some collaborations at the moment with some of my favourite muso friends.

See you soon. Rich

RBR Update

Hello, so I’ve been a little quiet lately but there’s been plenty happening in the background.

I’ve updated by video section with all the latest stuff from YouTube which you can find here.

I’m currently working on another remix, this time for the stupidly talented Forest of Fools who have been ripping up the festival scene for the last few years. I’m working on a RBR mix of their track Ancestors. I’m hoping to start on a remix of a track by Candidates very soon too.

I’m also in the process of writing and recording my new EP I’m going to move away from the 4 theme now and do a slightly longer one with 5 or 6 tracks. Titles I’m working on at the moment include:

Poster Boy
Feel the Burn
Guard the Guards
Don’t
And a new dirty electro version of Lipstick Girls

The songs are in a more electronic style than previous EPs but there’s still plenty of guitar in there.

Next gig is an acoustic set at MK Food Fest on the 15th September which is held in Linford Manor Park. Last years event was great. You can find more details of the event here…

See you all soon.

The Science of Rainbows – New YouTube Video

Today I released the video for my instrumental track The Science of Rainbows, created by the amazing team at Art Studio 14.

I guess I’m known as a singer songwriter type performer at the moment but I come up with many different ideas for my music. I first came up with the concept for this track many, many years ago. I wanted to do an instrumental track with dialogue on it. It was my attempt to try and represent the mix of science and natural beauty involved in a rainbow.

Originally I just sampled some old Open University type lecture on the subject, but worried that it might offend someone if I just stole their content. So the track sat on my hard drive for years but I never forgot about it.

Years later I had the good fortune to become great friends with a woman who had a very keen interest in the world of science. After talking about the idea of the song she very kindly agreed to not only write a custom dialogue about the science of rainbows, but to also narrate it for me. So this track really wouldn’t have happened without her.

Once I’d heard her amazing content I felt compelled to return to the track and make it better so that it could hopefully act as a worthy backing for her beautiful words.

Yes this is a little bit of departure from what some of you might have expected from a Rise Bailey Rise track, but I hope you enjoy it regardless.

So I dedicate this song to Jan Kiddley and her science.

And don’t forget…

“There are many rays of light”

Thanks for your time
