Sterling Latinoamérica: Calle 13 Laza Su Disco Nuevo “Multi_Viral”

Posted on

[Written by Simone Calbi; English translation below]

calle 13 banner EDIT

El primero de Marzo, Calle 13, lanzo su último disco, “Multi Viral”. Fue mesclado en Electric Lady Studios por Michael Brauer y la grabación estuvo a cargo de John Blais en San Juan, Puerto Rico. El disco fue masterizado en Sterling Sound por Joe Laporta. Es la primera vez que la banda masteriza en Sterling Sound. Joe dijo sobre su trabajo en el disco: “Fue un placer trabajando con John Blais, y Michael Brauer hizo un trabajo excelente con las mezclas. Me alegro poder ser incluido!”

La banda continua usando una fusión musical, mesclando, hip-hop, reggaetón, reggae, folklore, y en su nuevo disco, “Multi-viral” también hace una referencia a la música celta. “El Aguante” alude hasta la música celta. “Multi_Viral” presenta a dos músicos y escritores Latinoamericanos. La primera canción es un segmento de palabras habladas por Eduardo Galeano, la periodista, escritor, y novelista Uruguayo. La canción, “Ojos Color Sol” es una colaboración de el cantante Cubano, Silvio Rodríguez, una influencia para René Pérez Joglar’s, el cantante principal de la banda.

La referencia en “Multi_Viral” es ir más allá de los límites de Latino América. El video clip del tema, “Multi_Viral”, fue filmado en un pueblo Palestino. Presentan un riff de guitarra hard rock de Tom Morello de la banda Rage Against the Machine; la cantante invitada Árabe Israelí Kamilya Jubran colabora en el tema “Multi Viral “y palabras habladas de Julian Assange, que fueron grabados en Quito, Ecuador, donde el fundador de WikiLeaks tiene asilo. Assange declara en ingles, “desde Cairo a Quito un mundo nuevo está formando/El poder de la gente armado con la verdad.”

Calle 13 ha recibió mas Latin Grammys que cualquier otro grupo. Son afamados por opinar sobre política internacional y movimientos sociales, por denunciando la desigualdad e injusticia, la violencia de pandillas, y consumismo. René Pérez Joglar ha explicado las letras del disco “Multi_Viral” como un proyecto más existencial que cualquier otro de sus trabajos, diciendo en una entrevista con el New York Times, “De repente empecé a estar más alerta, o preocupada, por la vida y la muerta. Pensé: “quizás puedo hacer algo más grande que la política.” Joe Laporta decía sobre su trabajo en el proyecto, “Hay pocos artistas hoy en día que se puede expresar estos mensajes políticos y poderosos sobre una producción tan ecléctica y de alta calidad. Todo se siente muy real y genuino en el disco, ninguna idea se siente forzada.”

El hecho que Joe Laporta haya masterizado a Calle 13 marca un gran momento para Sterling Sound Latinoamérica. Este area de Sterling Sound es responsable de la coordinación de proyectos en español; y distingue y representa toda la música latinoamericana que pasa por nuestros estudios.

calle 13 latin grammys

On March 1st, Calle 13 released their fifth album: “Multi_Viral.” It was mixed at Electric Lady Studios, by Michael Brauer, and by the Puerto Rico based recording engineer, John Blais. The album was mastered at Sterling by Joe LaPorta. This is the first time the band has worked at Sterling Sound. Joe said: “John Blais was a pleasure to work with and Michael Brauer did an excellent job with the mixes. Glad to be involved!”

The Puerto Rican hip-hop duo continues to employ a musical fusion of hip-hop, reggaeton, reggae, and Latin folk. Their new track,“El Aguante” even alludes to Celtic music. “Multi_Viral” features two historically prolific Latin American musicians and writers. The opening track features a spoken word segment by Eduardo Galeano, a Uruguayan journalist, writer and novelist. The track “Ojos Color Sol” is a collaboration with Cuban songwriter Silvio Rodríguez, an influence of René Pérez Joglar’s, the group’s lead singer.

“Multi_Viral”’s references go beyond the borders of Latin America; the music video for the title track was filmed in a Palestinian town. It features hard-rock guitar riff from Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, guest vocals in Arabic from the Arab Israeli singer Kamilya Jubran, and a spoken-word appearance by Julian Assange recorded in Quito, Equador where the WikiLeaks founder has taken asylum. Mr. Assange declares: “From Cairo to Quito a new world is forming/The power of people armed with the truth.”

Calle 13 has received more Latin Grammys than any other group. They are famed for recognizing international political and social movements, namely, by renouncing the disparity and injustice between classes and making calls against gang violence and consumerism. René Pérez Joglar has described the lyrics of the album “Multi_Viral” as “more existential,” stating in an interview with the New York Times: “Suddenly, I’ve started to be more aware, or worried, about living and dying. I thought, maybe I can do something bigger than politics”. According to Joe: “There are very few artists these days who can convey these powerful political messages over such eclectic and top notch production. Everything felt very real and genuine on the record, no forced ideas/formulas.”

Joe LaPorta’s mastering of Calle 13 marks a big moment for Sterling Sound Latinoamérica. This area of Sterling Sound is responsible for coordinating projects in Spanish and is also dedicated to celebrating, representing, and distinguishing all of the Latin American music that comes through the studio.

Sterling Sound Welcomes A New Engineer: Joe LaPorta!

joelaportabetter

 

Here at Sterling we’re excited to announce the arrival of a new engineer: Joe LaPorta! He is joining our ranks as a Senior Mastering Engineer.

Joe began his career at The Lodge and over the past ten years has amassed an impressive discography of artists including the Foo Fighters, Solange, Vampire Weekend, Tiesto, The Killers, Beach House, Garbage, Jimmy Cliff, Armin Van Buuren, Neutral Milk Hotel and many more. The new Jimmy Cliff record Rebirth, which Joe mastered, won a grammy for Best Reggae Album at the awards ceremony last month; his work is routinely praised by critics, often awarded the influential “Best New Music” accolade on Pitchfork.

Joe’s start in music production began when he was a senior in high school. He initially produced hip hop and electronic music and went on to work with artists including 50 Cent, GZA (of Wu Tang Clan) and Talib Kweli. He and a partner then founded an independent record label that secured a distributed deal with Caroline/EMI. He also licensed his original compositions to major film and TV clients including Fox, MTV and Showtime. His diverse background and knowledge of music have attracted a wide range of mastering clients from Billboard chart toppers to up-and-coming indie acts.

A graduate of NYU’s prestigious Music Technology program, Joe’s broad understanding of audio has also earned him a position as a consultant for one of the world’s leading forensic musicologists. He has analyzed cases for hundreds of artists ranging from The Beatles to Michael Jackson.

If you’re interested in booking a session with Joe please reach out to his manager Katy Samwell at: katy.samwell@sterling-sound.com!

Yo La Tengo’s New Album “Fade” Released Today

Indie group Yo La Tengo pictured after mastering with Greg Calbi.

Greg Calbi photographed with Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew.

On January 15th Yo La Tengo’s thirteenth studio album “Fade” was released. The indie veterans have been active for three decades, miracuously staying relevant without conceding to the musical vogue of the moment. They have been loyal to Sterling engineer Greg Calbi, who has mastered every one of their studio albums since May I Sing With Me (1992) as well as many of their EP’s and compilations.

The trio have had, and continue to have, one of the more decorated careers in indie rock. Notably absent is the internal strife of The Pixies, marital dysfunctions of Sonic Youth, or the erratic reclusiveness of Jeff Mangum; rather, YLT is dependable in content and consistency. They have not gone more than four years without a lapse between studio albums, usually just a hiatus of two to three years (the term hiatus is misleading as these sabbaticals often featured the release of an EP or compilation), all while playing sold out shows to their dedicated fan base.

Below is a music video for the album’s first track “Ohm.” It was shot in Overlook Park in Portland, Oregon and directed by Josiah Marshall and Chris Cantino. As inspiration for the video YLT’s Ira Kaplan shared: “I am reminded of the oddball great Beach Boys song “A Day in the Life of a Tree,” from Surf’s Up and sung on that record by their manager at the time Jack Rieley (adequate vocalists obviously being hard to come by in the Beach Boys proper), covered once and only once by YLT–Sept. 17, 1998, at Maxwell’s.”

Their new album, released on Matador, is available on iTunes and here.

Gary Clark Jr.’s Major Label Debut “Blak And Blu” Released This Week

Posted on

Album cover for Gary Clark Jr.'s new release.

Today marks the release of the first studio album from the Austin blues prodigy: Gary Clark Jr. After releasing a slew of EP’s on his own imprint Hotwire Unlimited, GCJ worked with producers Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Fiona Apple, etc.) and Rob Cavallo (the A&R savant behind Green Day’s success) for the Warner Bros. album. Titled “Blak and Blu,” the fifteen track LP was mastered at Sterling by Chief Mastering Engineer Ted Jensen in early September .

For the Delta Blues purists, “Devil Got My Woman” this is not. GCJ’s vocals dwell in a register more high and polished than the classic shouter; the texture of his delivery is more syrupy than gruff, think Marvin Gaye over Muddy Waters. While the influence of post-WWII electric blues rock is undeniable, the album’s most distinct quality is its genre cross-pollination. Some tracks are of the unadulterated Rock & Roll variety (“When My Train Pulls In” and “Third Stone From The Sun/If You Love Me Like You Say”); others draw more heavily on the R&B tradition (“The Life” and “Please Come Home”). While Gary Clark Jr. might not have sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads of Highway 61 and 49, his album is a thorough investigation into the many incarnations of the modern blues tradition in contemporary music.

Check out a picture of the room they mastered in, as well as a live video of GCJ performing at Austin City Limits earlier this month:

John Lennon’s Jukebox Has A Home At Sterling Sound

Lennon Jukebox At Sterling Sound

A Seeburg Jukebox That Formally Belonged To John Lennon Now Lives At Sterling Sound

In honor of John Lennon’s birthday this week, we would like to share a little bit of his legacy preserved here at the studio.

Beyond their novelty at bars and retro diners, jukeboxes are now one of the more obsolete forms of personalized music listening. Eclipsed by the Walkman, the Discman, and finally the monolithic iPod, it’s almost hard to imagine a time when a couple nickels in exchange for a few songs was the most control one had over their sonic sphere. What would you do in the 1960’s if you wanted your personal stash of 45’s playable at any time and in any place? You would make like John Lennon and get your own portable jukebox, of course.

John Lennon was a man of many fascinations, and jukeboxes were one of them. He was known for collecting the music players and occasionally would give them away to close friends or sentimental places. Knowledge of his affinity resurfaced in 1989 when a Swiss KB Discomatic he had purchased in 1965 and filled with 40 singles to listen to while touring appeared in a Christe’s Beatles’ memorabilia auction. The story of this particular jukebox became the subject of an excellent documentary, as well as a 2004 CD compilation entitled John Lennon’s Jukebox.

The famous Record Plant recording studio, where Lennon recorded Walls and Bridges and Mind Games among other records, was gifted one of his Seeburg jukeboxes in the early 1970’s. When the New York studio shut down in 1987, the machine was acquired by Jim Ball, one of the staff engineers, and put into storage. Years later, Greg Calbi, a senior mastering engineer at Sterling Sound and a previous Record Plant employee, was at a RP reunion and learned about the location of the jukebox. He arranged to have it brought to Sterling, where we have had it on load for the past five years. Unfortunately the amplifier module is broken, but there has been talk of refurbishing it.

Despite the its inability to play music, the jukebox’s original 45’s are still intact within the machine, and the titles are still legible. Check out the pictures below!
