The Psytek Project – The fight to keep the dreams alive!

After the downfall of Megaupload I’ve had to re-upload all of the previously uploaded Master Scratch Tapes that I have Cleaned and Remastered. Plus I have finally finished what was left from the NG83 community. I would like to send a special thanks to all who have contributed to providing the source material for this project especially to Phil Littlechild for keeping it real with the Pie.N.Ears Blog and uploading help etc…

You can now find all of our hard work here at Pie.N.Ears

MasterScratch- The PsyTek Project *** updates***

Image

Psy Tek has put alot of hard work into cleaning up the 28 year old MasterScratch tapes from Nottinghams Rock City days. Anyone who has tried to convert old tapes from the 80s or 90s to mp3 knows what quality to expect, with a lot of hard work and effort , its possible to get them sounding as new.
Here are his latest volumes of the cleaned up versions.
Both sides of the tapes are in one zip file.


MasterScratch – The PsyTek Project

PsyTek (John Davies of HOC Sound System and hands on recordings) has used his 10 years of knowledge and studio experience to clean up the Master Scratch tapes. These tapes are over 28 years old and PsyTek makes them sound like you just bought them from HMV as CD’s.
The work gone into these is no different from cleaning up a film to convert it to HD, by stopping every time to hear a hiss or pop, taking out the offending sound Much respek PsyTek, keep up the good work!

Here is where you can download the finished products: The PsyTek Projest

New tracks for licensing from

Well I know I’ve not been writing much here in recent weeks but that’s because I’ve been busy writing and producing at the “hands on recordings” studio here in Nottingham, and now I have two new tracks for licensing.

The first track is called “Hope” written by me John Davies (PsyTek) and it’s mainly an instrumental soundtrack or soundscape that has a haunting piano running through the track with string sections that build up to create an emotional crescendo, while modern beats bring it bang up to date. I think it would be perfect for film, TV or indeed any corporate situation.

The second track is called “Save The World” Written and sung by Del St Joseph who has had a long successful history in the music industry with several hits under his belt. One of which being, “Please Don’t Go,” by K.W.S, (UK number 1 for 6 weeks, number 4 US Billboard Chart 1990/1). It’s produced by me John Davies (PsyTek) founder of hands on recordings and the session keys were done by Will Joss. The track is a pop track for either a male or female, young or old that wants to take advantage of this emotional love song. It starts with a plucked string section that is repeated through each verse then POW! a big trance like anthem synth takes you through the chorus emphasizing the emotion sung by the singer. Del pitched it to me as a track he’s always wanted to write.

Well I hope you enjoy the tracks and if anyone is interested please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
