Demrick Recording Session
Recording Engineer: Nick Breton
Reconnected with Demrick for the first of our sessions this week. He’s been touring like crazy this year and he’s also releasing new music every week. We took some time to catch up since we hadn’t seen each other for a few months then laid out our plan for the session and got to it.
Demrick’s main objective for the night was recording two feature records. I got the files and set up the first Pro Tools session. He wrote the verse pretty fast by my count and recorded it within 4 or 5 takes. He’s a seasoned vet when it comes to being in the studio and I love his level of efficiency when it comes down to putting in work.
I cued up the second and he followed the same course of action. Wrote the entire 16 within a half hour and knocked it down in 4 or 5 takes. I packaged up the reference tracks and acapella vocals then sent them on their way to their recipients.
After knocking out the main objective I pulled up some Lord Quest beats (shout out to Lord Quest) and Demrick landed on one that he liked. I threw up some tune and reverb then Demrick went in and laid down melody and lyric ideas. We tapped out around midnight, ate some edibles and parted ways.
