Only You Released to Spotify and SoundCloud!

  This is my first "slow song" dance track.  The rock organ and heavy bass keep this track perky but the melody is pure soft jazz guitar.  Because slow dancing was the only thing I knew how to do, the title popped into my head very quickly ha!   Album Cover Credit Pixabay Autumnsgoddess0     Hear HatchBatch on Spotify and SoundCloud #dancemusıc #EDM #rockorgan #stratocaster #dancehall #slowdance  Instagram Promo Clip: Only You on SoundCloud Only You on Spotify

Dreaming of You Published to Spotify and SoundCloud!

The dance groove in this track is very compelling!  Originally in the unreleased Stratman Unplugged series written in 2020, this track was initially called Strat Solo No 2. Album cover credit goes to Kellepics on Pixabay.  Here's a short clip from the track: I went thru 6 versions on this track.  I had an "alto" part that I ended up dropping.  On this version, the bass and guitar make up the bulk of the background accompaniment.  The drums have added compression.  I had to quantize the piano, which is playing off-beat "spikes"  at 1/16th and the bass at 1/8th.  Off-beat just does not work unless the rhythms are precise.  The original Stratocaster lead was recorded at 85bpm but this final is at 110bpm.  There was quite a bit of "midi" cleanup on the solo, also quantized at 1/16th.  Each time I work thru an sound engineering session, I find new processes to do that improve the overall EQ and volume of each instrument.    Dreaming of You on Spotify Dreami

Bill Jones Music Studio Publishing Name is HatchBatch

  HatchBatch To hatch music in batches Why the artist name change?   To reflect how I create music and also make it much easier to find my "name" in the sea of  on-line musicians Music created using improvisation (to hatch or originate) is fast and easy. So easy, in fact, the tracks flow out in "batches".  Each session rapidly follows another in the genre of choice.  Once created or "hatched", modern digital audio workstation (DAW) software, such as Steinberg Cubase 12, make it easy to modify the initial recordings.

I Don't Know You Released by HatchBatch!

  I Don't Know You was written in 2020 and part of a "to be released" album titled "Stratman Unplugged".  The original track was a live Stratocaster lead, but at a much slower tempo.  This new version is much more danceable!  Cover Credit:  Geralt on Pixabay.  #stratocaster #dancemusic #dance #community #guitar   I Don't Know You on SoundCloud I Don't Know You on Spotify

Don't Be Shy by HatchBatch Released!

Written back in 2020, this track was inspired by a viewing Big Fish in concert.  The original Stratocaster lead was converted from audio to midi, cleaned up in Cubase Score, and then converted back to audio.  It's a fast 2/4 cut time with a triplet on the quarter note.  Thus, normally called a swing, in 2/4.  Keyboard plays on the 1/2 beat most of the time.  The strings are accent on verse but pad on the chorus.  What can I say, the drums are hot!   A dance track.   Don't Be Shy on SoundCloud Don't Be Shy on Spotify
