Nice master! Good work!
Awesome MT--thank youuuu!! Gonna mix the flute in too---would love to have that one mastered if you get to it!! Appreciate your work!! :)
No problem, just let me know when you are done and I will get to it. Sorry for the delay on this one, busy month. Cheers.
Thank you sooo much!!! When I asked you to master this, the very cool flute hadn't come in so I thought it was ready (Mr. Bilshot may use the non-flute one for projects he wants to work on!) :) And absolutely NO WORRIES//HURRIES on time... it's when YOU'RE available!! Appreciate the work!! :)
I'll PM you when ready to master the flute one--I just want to see if Joe has any updates//changes he'd like to hear! :) Chat soon!! :)
so is this the final master for me to release via my website and social media?
Hi Mr. B... I think that MT wanted to try and fix my "mix" before actually mastering it.... of course whatever you want to do is great but he's an actual mixer//master-er :) so maybe wait until I//we see what he says... he's the guru! :)
Okay sounds good can you please keep me updated?
Most definitely, I will!! :) Thank you!! :)
also any ideas for artwork?
Hmmm... let me think on it--I'm really not good with artwork . I typically grab free photos from pixabay.com... they have royalty-free commercial ready photos that can be distributed... :) I like free!! hahahaa!! :)
no problem I'll probably design a little something myself then let me know if you do design something though
Okay I've designed a nice artwork but cant attach it and show you for some reason... Also as I've come to release the track on my soundcloud I've got confused all of a sudden ahaha so is the final name for this song 'taking on a life of its own'?? or 'taking a life on its own' or just 'taking a life'??
OK Bilshot, time to belly up and become a plus, like Kimmy; plus she is a plus member! See what I did there? I think that may the problem. I too need to belly up, and get serious. Guys, what you've done is hot!!!
Thanks Brad! And well I'm not sure how much it is to be a plus member but in the mean time if you and Kim chuck me your email address I can send you the artwork (which looks great by the way)
hahahaa---WOW Very cool!! :) I guess I kinda sabotaged this beauty... I started calling it "Taking A Life" :) prolly works best!! :)
Can't wait to see the design--how cool!! YOu can upload a JPG here... I can even change the artwork at the top if you like!! :) Whatever you prefer!! :)
(I see what you did there , bRAD RAD RAD! (that's the sound of me chanting!) :) :)
I just love this!!! You all blend so well on here, the smooth, soulful vocals of Kimmie with a fantastic and talented rapper! The musicians are awesome! Well done all!!
Thank you so much Fidlersongs, your feedback is very much appreciated and I'm glad you love the song :)
Yeah no problem Kim its called 'Taking A Life' then and I have the final artwork so if you give me your email address I will send you it over
Hello all of you amazing people that made this collaboration possible! I salute you!
But It has come to my attention that recently just after releasing this song to all of my fans that most people didn't want it to end, overall I've had mixed feedback on Facebook but all extremely positive from all my fans and from strangers and I agree also with some of them.
Could we please re-arrange the structure of the track, perhaps move my verse to after Kim's first verse or leave it where it is and put another chorus from Kim after my verse then maybe another verse from me again then another chorus, so basically an extension of the track or break it up so we are back to back and the song doesn't just end abruptly after my verse at the end because a lot of the feedback I have had was people saying they love it but they wanna hear more of me and they were just getting in to it when it suddenly ended and they want more. What do you think guys?
Brad can you please spare us a little more time if your busy just to extend the beat for us to add an extra chorus and continue work? Might sound amazing with just the extra chorus on the end or like I said I may consider doing another verse and chorus whatever is necessary for this to happen could you extend the instrumental I will be eternally grateful haha :) much appreciated!
Also I keep being asked if its available on you tube so once we get an extended beat and when the song is finalized I will be more than happy to invest money in the production of a music video for this beautiful project and really bring it to life! No less than what it deserves!

Great idea! Kim & I have had this conversation. The original track (along with so many others) got lost in data heaven (Crashed Hard Drive). But with what you all have done with this tune, I can't help but to try to help. My thinking is to amp it up into a house mix and using my gained knowledge of using digital (fiber cable (TOSLINK) not to geek out) recording, I'd like to re-create the mix. But there are several obstacles...My job has clients who are demanding, My company, and me has to process/pay our fine US Tax system (April 15th), my recording capabilities and my talent. So in short, please keep it going with the artwork, video concepts and be patient. I will try my best and Kim, I'm sure will help keep it together.
Thank you so much Brad! Yes no problem at all we can most definitely be patient! I can continue to plan ideas for the music video for the song etc I am so excited about this project because its such an amazing song and the response I continue to have for it is overwhelmingly great! People keep telling me how good it is so yes can definitely wait it will be worth it! Thanks again Brad! your hard work is very much appreciated :)
Thank you so much to all here who have commented!! What a great pet project here for me, personally--I LOVE this song and find myself humming it during the day... :)
To Mr. b and Mr. B!!! :) :) this song has REALLY GROWN!!! :) Whatever ends up being is great with me. If we want to keep on working on it--I'm IN...... but with the collaboration effort in mind, I really do want to try and make it feasible for ALL parties involved so if it needs to be the final take... that's fine with me too!! I'm in it for the long haul so no worries on my end if it takes a lot of time... everyone has other priorities... completely understandable!! :) Keep me posted ... this project is absolutely BRILL and unique (for me) but there'll be others as well....!! :)
Yeah I'm exactly the same! It's so funky and catchy I find myself either humming it out loud or in my head throughout the day when I'm working etc and I keep getting bombarded with compliments and positive feedback about our work so its very exciting!
And yes I think first things first is once we receive the extended instrumental we literally just add another chorus from you after my verse and then leave that as a wrapped up finish and call it version 1.
Then I would like to attempt another verse and I will need you to add your chorus again before the outro and fade out to the track and then we will hopefully possibly have a nice extended version of our soundtrack so we will have 2 versions, 1 that is short and sweet and an extended version.
We can see which one is best then, but I might find that I can't produce another verse that pleases me as I'm very obsessive perfectionist haha I'm hoping I can and I have to try just incase I am able to feel inspired for another verse with as much impact as the first, we will see, but either way its best to give it a go and extend the track. If I find that I can do another verse then we will keep the short but sweet version with just your added chorus after my verse then the outro if you get me? So the song will feel more structured and complete
Sounds like a wonderful plan--thanks for keeping us on track!! I will be traveling soon and so my opportunities to record are going to be very limited however if Mr. RAD to the b can't get to things right away--that might work out great anyway... I will keep checking in and then once I"m back home I'll make a concerted effort to put this at the top of the list!! Cheers and THANK YOU!! :)
Okay great, I wish you all the best with your travels, be safe and make sure you come back to us! haha and just wondering after Brad has extended the beat will you need to record a fresh chorus to come in after my verse? Or can't you just copy and paste your original chorus acapella in to that spot? Because we want the hooks to all be exactly the same anyway so really you dont need to do anymore recording you only need to put your chorus after my verse then leave a gap and place your hook again for a final chorus then outro to the track because its only me who will be writing another verse your hooks need to be exactly the same as earlier in the track which you have already recorded if you understand what I mean?
