S2Blue Newsletter – Winter 2007
Here’s the latest from S2Blue
May we wish you a belated Happy New Year and welcome to the S2blue Winter 2007 newsletter. It was a busy end to 2006 and 2007 has kicked off in much the same way.
We continued our work with the BBC creating a new custom package for BBC Essex and a ‘top up’ package for BBC Radio Oxford.
The Essex package followed on from our recent work for the BBC by including an extended string section, in this case it was a 14 piece section, with players taken from the BBC Philharmonic, which gives the whole package that unique ‘big’ sound. There’s a Sneak Peak video & pictures of the string session available on S2blue.com.
We also produced some ‘top up’ imaging for BBC Radio Oxford, to fit in along side the successful full package we had previously created for them. The new cuts reflect musical styles of the last 40 years & come in 3 parts with detachable tops & tails, as well as a loopable bed in the middle. Check out the original package by clicking here.
Late last year we completed a new custom imaging package for Lakeland Radio. The package consists of 10 cuts with fresh sounding tracks blended with a mixture of solo and group vocals.
The package has already been resung for Sabras Radio & Moorlands Radio. Check out a Sneak Peak video of the vocal session by clicking here.
We’ve added a demo for the Lincs FM Group imaging package we recently produced. The package is currently being aired on all 9 of the Lincs FM Group stations & features contemporary group vocals over bright tracks.
Our main vocalists Sarah Doggett & Steve Butler have been interviewed, along with Steve England for a BBC Radio 2 documentary series called ‘Living in harmony’. The 4 part series, presented by Russell Davies looks at harmony singing over the years. Make sure you don’t miss the show on BBC Radio 2 – Thursday’s at 9pm.
