Wud Records: new releases, remixes and investment

Here at Wud Records we seem to have reached the limit of what we can achieve without further investment in our studio equipment.

What we hear in our studios sounds absolutely fantastic. But somehow, that just doesn’t seem to translate very well to other places.

The most recent results have been particularly disappointing.

Something simply has to be done.

The remedy we have been recommended, by several trusted professional sources, suggests some urgent investment. We badly need to upgrade the existing studio speakers for a new set of good professional studio monitors for mixing and mastering. As the saying goes, “you can’t mix what you can’t hear”.

We need to raise about 600 Euros to achieve this. On top of a few long awaited essential repairs, we’ve just had a whopping ten-year internet bill, which has rather depleted our financial reserves.

Wud Records has always needed to pay for itself to exist and grow. At present rates, the studio monitor upgrade might happen by between the end of this year and the spring of 2023.

With a little help from our friends and fans of our awesome bands buying our music, that can happen sooner.

The key issue is that this really needs to happen. We want you to be able to hear the music that we are producing sounding as amazing as we can hear it in our studios. At the moment, that just isn’t happening.

Once we have completed the necessary upgrade, we shall attempt to rework some recent releases. This is so you can enjoy hearing them as they should sound, the way we hear them in our studios, rather than the garbled half-baked oddities we seem to be producing these days.

On the slate for remixing and remastering are HappySad by Flicker, Anthology by Pok the Bard, and Cosy Lube Turtle and Cherry Smoke Empire, both by The Bastard Sons of Dennis.

There is much more material that is almost ready to go, but we don’t know if we can trust the final results.

We are thinking of continuing to release music during this transition period, then sending updated versions to those who downloaded our music. This is far from a concrete decision and is the biggest issue that we are debating internally.

A few new income streams to aid this whole process will be coming online soon.

Please, support us in this endeavour to upgrade our main studio.
