As some of you know we’ve been pretty busy with creating russebuss songs so here’s the first of five!

Not too long ago we posted this. Well Garden Party is up there again! I was going to just add it as a comment to our old post, but seeing as we don’t update the blog very often, a new post couldn’t hurt!

In other news, we recently entered a remix competition for Bjorn Muri – Yes Man and sent in our entry today. Deadline is Feb 14th and apparently they’ll know who the winner is the day after, but I’m not entirely sure that’s accurate. At any rate, we’ll definitely post if we win or not – if we don’t, the remix will be up for download.
A couple months ago we posted the Pseudonym russebuss song, which was updated per request of the bus. They wanted it to be a little more crazy and sport their bus name. We weren’t able to post the song until now because we didn’t receive payment until now. Not sure why it took them so long, but I digress. We’ll start this post off with that.

To my knowledge we’re unable to update the youtube video audio without uploading a new vid altogether. I’d do the latter but I deleted the ae project. If anyone knows how to do this, do tell!
If you’re wondering what we’ve been up to lately, we’ve been working on and off on several tracks, most of which we started and haven’t revisited in some time, but they’re still on the possible “to finish” list. Maybe you can help us prioritize which one to attempt to finish first, if any.
Here’s a few snippets (please ignore audio quality, these aren’t mastered yet):
Coldplay – Life in Technicolor Remix
What’s stopping us from finishing: We really want the a capella for this one, but we can’t find it anywhere! Also areas need to be improved instrumentally.
Blarsa – no name yet, wip name: dwm
What’s stopping us: Nothing really, original vocals perhaps, lack of motivation?
There’s other tracks we’ve started but they’ll probably never make it out of Ableton Live or Cubase.
We have a few more russe songs to do for the festival in May, so those might get posted when their time comes. Lars has been working on some solo projects in his spare time. I mixed & mastered one of his new ‘experiments’ tonight, might post that up here soon! Imagine dutch house, mixed with Lars’s style, and nintendo. That sums it up pretty well.
Our beloved friend Michael ‘Sextraordinaire’ Clements has created a new theme for us! Looks mighty fine I’d say. There might be a few minor bugs but he’s working them out as we find them. Thanks Michael, we wuv you babybabaay! lalalal
Not too long ago Lars and I were on skype and he started to drunkenly sing con te partiro or time to say goodbye and that’s where the idea was born. Though this has been done plenty of times we still wanted to give it a go. Warping the vocals was a bit of a bitch but Lars is a warp masta and did the deed (you may notice the video footage playing back a bit fast – this was required so our remix would sync with the footage). I did the video tonight and now I’m releasing it and the song while Lars sleeps. He doesn’t even know I’m doing this, doubt he’ll mind though!
Anyway, here it is – Sarah Brightman ft Andrea Bocelli – Time To Say Goodbye (Blarsa Remix)

A few posts back we mentioned we were working on russebuss songs (don’t know what Russebuss is? Find out!) and put up a 3 second long snippet of a track, well that snippet was for a bus called Midlertidig. Apparently it was not only their promo song but part of a contest at a club in Norway to see which bus’s song could get the crowd going (which would explain why the girls of Midlertidig wanted us to put in vocal shouts like “put your hands up!” “jump jump jump!” and other misc cheesy assets, ie: the intro) – aside from that it turned out fairly well. We might put up an instrumental without all the random shouts if people like the song. If you’re expecting to hear a non-repetitive song, turn back now.
