Viewing: Slash Zero Records - View all posts
On Friday Sep 21st, my good friend Andy Kneitinger (under the moniker of "Illegal I") released his debut album "Illegal Eye" (which I had the honor to produce and play bass on) via Slash Zero Records.
Happy Dynamic Range Day everyone!!!
Today we'll commiserate all the "loudness war" victims suffering from lifeless over-compression, reckless clipping, heavy limiting and other unwanted distortion effects, and honor those who were brave enough to let their recordings breathe the necessary air they're supposed to have to create a nice dynamic journey for all audiophiles and music lovers!
Let's hope that some day (real soon) all those victims will be re-released with a more "user-friendly" sound aesthetic.
Give peaks a chance!
I'd rather tell these stories to you "in persona", but chances are that I don't know you personally, or that I haven't had enough time to meet you in person for some time, so I'm gonna write them here for you to read anyway.
So let's start with some history:
Because our label at the time (GoldenCore / ZYX Music) fucked up the CD release of our band GumoManiacs' "Out Of Disorder" album, and we were bound to a contract that didn't allow us to look for other labels, I decided to release the LP version on my own, so that's basically the beginning of Slash Zero Records. And to the date, exactly one year after we released that record (Dec 11th, 2015) I'm writing this first blog post here. So technically speaking it's SZR's 1st birthday today - and as a birthday present, I will now officially unveil the Slash Zero Records homepage to this world.
