We are happy to present our latest TRAY Session with Los Angeles based artists Low Leaf & The Ascension. They recorded their soulful jazz-infused song „It Is Within“ in our temporary rolling studio. This time we built a recording shack into a vintage 70’s Mercedes G Klasse. Thanks to Gabriel Roski for lending us his car – and for driving while we shot. The song is on their LP „Palm Psalms: A Light To Resolve All Darkness“ and can be purchased digitally and is also available on double vinyl, released on Low Leaf’s own imprint.

Vocals & Lyrics: Low Leaf
Guitar: Marc Encabo
Bass Guitar: Cole Makaha Brossus
Flute: Bryan Baker
Audio Mix & Mastering: Thay Putra
Have fun with our fourth jam session.Singer/songwriter David Pereira (Soundcloud) from Nürnberg paid us a visit. He was supported bei Klaus Reeder firing the beats by Cape Town based producer Fair Game (Soundcloud). Crischa’s rugged but true-hearted Mercedes Strich 8 had to see the doctor. But we were able to built our temporary studio into this sweet Mini Cooper this time around. Thanks to Morten Christensen for helping out! We got more sessions, in case this is something that floats your boat – follow this link.

It have been busy weeks! Right now we are sweating at the mixing and mastering gears.
We were able to shoot some great sessions with new friends from two continents! Sometimes even two within just 4 days. But don’t get us wrong – that resulted in a happy kind of tired. The music in our TRAY Session videos is always a live performance recorded right in that car, while we are shooting the video. Right no we are tackling that new mixing schedule – but we are in best spirits! The artists and us are already super excited to share the results.
Every artist brings his unique set up to her/his/their session, which is different from the one before and that is mad fun. Feels good to do something where there is no such thing as an exact recipe. We gonna mix like hell and come back to you soon!
