Hello, forum friends

Sometimes I would like to remake my old song.
This time I reproduced one of them with RealTracks.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Title: 恋のプラージュ (Translation: Lovers’ Beach)

Vocal: Yoko K., my friend

Link:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/lovers-beach

Style is _CALEJAR.STY Calejar Bossa Rock with Alto Sax
RealTracks in style: 521:Bass, Electric, Pop Syncopated Ev 136
RealTracks in style: ~471:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Bossa Ev 140 ('A' only)
RealTracks in style: 3238:Guitar, Nylon, Rhythm BossaBrazilRamon Ev 140
RealDrums in Style: LaPopJazzRelaxedEv8: a: LaPopJazzRelaxedEv8b: LaPopJazzRelaxedEv8

RealTracks in style: 3453:Sax, Alto BossaLounge 140 (1TrackHornSection)
I cut above sax track and I use the following RealTracks instead.
RealTracks in song: ~1658:Organ, Soloist Bossa Ev 140
And additional 4 part strings played with EastWest Symphonic Orchestra

Summary of lyrics:

I’m yet in half dreamy state of mind
I gently get rid of your hand and got out of bed
It’s still in the early morning
The curtain is shaking near the window

The room is a little cool
Invited by the sound of waves
I’m slightly dancing on my toes
And watching the beach by the window

Our future will continue unchanged tomorrow
Just like the sea that is shining over there
I will believe in you if you hug me tightly with your arms

With stealthy steps some one is approaching me from behind
I know it's you, but my heart is beating faster and faster.

I feel it is a miracle to meet you in this wide world
Please let us remember our brilliant days
And let us spend time together from now on

I will keep staring at only you.
I'm sure we will be blended into one color
Just like the sea and the sky

I really like the production, Shigeki Adachi. Everything comes across without competing for attention. Everything goes to building the whole. Yoko has a great voice for bringing the whole song to a highly enjoyable listen.

Shigeki,

The style works very well- and your inclusion of the busy organ changes the feel to a cool, happy, dance celebration.
Lovely vocal from Yoko and as always on your work, an excellent mix.
Uplifting music!

Shigeki Adachi,

A delightful production - as your work always is.

The organ grabs your attention right away. The bass sounds great.

Yoko's vocal is excellent (as always) and mixed very well.

The balance of instruments is good. Another good mix. Bright and clear.

A very enjoyable listen.

Shigeki, I enjoyed this from the very first note.

Fantastic choice of tempo, and certainly Yoko has delivered an amazing vocal performance.

Musically, the balance is absolutely perfect.

A "Class" Production, no question.

We've always enjoyed a good bossa and this is
excellent.

Yoko's vocal is outstanding and your production
sounds wonderful on our monitors.

It's very unusual to hear an organ solo RT and
you made great use of it.

Really well done!

Lovely arrangement.
I think the vcal could be softened with a tiny bit more reverb but that's just me.
Loved it!

Shigeki ...

Another stellar song and production from you. I always hope to hear Yoko singing every time I click onto one of your songs ... she's such a wonderful singer.

A wonderful song. Everything sits perfectly in the mix and that organ is so sweet!

That's a wonderful listen!

Best to you and be safe ...

Alan

I know it's often difficult to translate, but my goodness, this is a GREAT love song lyric. The upbeat band matches the words and the excitement she feels. Yoko has a lovely voice. She handled those slurs like a pro. Love the busy organ interlude. This is simply happy-making. Thanks.

Another great pop song, I really like the organ which, together with the bossa groove and beautiful classic chording, creates a 60's French movie feeling, Yoko's singing is excellent - somehow it sounds like she is singing in French. Nice modulation. Great mix, everything is so smooth giving happy summer vibes.
