We know full well that Christmas began at least a fortnight ago on the high street however it legitimately starts early here. Every year we get several enquiries about recording christmas songs which need to be ready for a festive release schedule. That means getting into the studio now to have any chance of getting everything recorded, mixed, mastered and then put into production in time. We’ve seen this every year but last year we worked on something truly unique. Freeview+ ran a seasonal campaign for their services last year and struck upon an idea that we’ve not done here before (and in over 12 years of business there isn’t much we haven’t seen).
Oxford based a capella group Out Of The Blue who narrowly missed out on the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 were in the studio teaching Denise Van Outen to sing…backwards! We recorded the group singing a well known carol backwards (see if you can guess what it is) which when we reversed the recording reveals what they were singing. It’s an incredible feat and Denise got involved along the way between being interviewed for the advert.
