Well...it has been a while since I've been posting. Why... you might ask? We've been completing the new Groove Corporation CD. Above is the album being mastered by Nick Blagona, (just Goggle his name, I dare you...) a really great guy who stepped in to give us a hand with his advice and expertise as a master of mastering. Mastering is the process of taking the individual tracks from the album and laying them out in the proper order, equalizing, smoothing and adding the magic dust that belongs to the masters of mastering. It is a skill few have and those that do it well, such as Nick, are a very valuable asset to the production of any album. He had just returned to the Hammer after working with Alexisonfire in Vancouver, so much thanks to Nick for being there in the "nick" of time for us. (Sorry...couldn't resist that...lol)
Groove Corporation will be holding our CD release party in the Hammer (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) at the Corktown, one of our favorite places to play. If you happen to be in the area, it is April 4th. Directions and all pertinent information is at http://www.groovecorporation.com/ under our Calendar link. We are having a great time with our first Groove Corp album and are looking forward already to making the next one. More info to come...
