To coincide with our 50th release, and after feedback from our regular users we've refreshed the site with a complete overhaul. Not only a fresh lick of paint on how it looks, but also faster and more intuitive and with some awesome new features as requested by our users, to make your browsing experience and music searches even faster.
As well as the cool new styling we've added some AWESOME new features :
1) The new player - We've had a lot of requests from users saying they'd like to see how lovely looking our waveforms are... and so we got the monkeys working on this one! They've come up with a deliciously new waveform player. We hope that helps your eyes! Go check it out..
2) Download basket - Downloading on a track by track basis seemed cumbersome for some of our users and so we've added a zip feature. This now allows you to preview, select then download as a zip. We've also added the option to download the whole album in one go!!
3) Easier navigation - The previous site proved difficult when moving from section to section, and so we decided to clean this up a bit and improve on user navigation.
4) Site performance!! We've gone ahead and steam-cleaned our site to improve performance and speed. We hope you like navigating around like a Formula One car!
We hope it makes your Beds & Beats experience even better, and if you have any feedback or to report any bugs email: firstname.lastname@example.org
OUR 50th ALBUM
We're extremely proud to announce the launch of our 50th ALBUM.
It's taken us 3 years to get here, but here we are at album 50!
Total fromage is a cheesy kitsch nod to 60's and 70's retro music recorded using the same techniques they used back then. Including guitars, hammond, percussion, drums, and an orchestra of London's finest players, with credentials which range from the beatles to hollywood movies such as the hobbit and les miserables, Full Brass and Strings, recorded at the world famous Abbey Road Studios London.
With a nod to various styles and themes, we know you're going to LOVE this album and it'll put a smile on your face as we head into the summer time!
Plus by popular demand as well as the usual mixes we supply, we've created less obtrusive presenter "talk over" bed versions of the tracks for those breakfast / personality shows in need of new beds / feature beds.
The team at beds and beats have spent months creating this world class album (with a talent pool of over 50 people, and hundreds of man hours). We hope you enjoy using it as much as we did making it.
** SINCE RECORDING THIS ALBUM WE'RE SADDENED TO LEARN OF THE DEATH OF MASTER TRUMPETEER DEREK WATKINS, HIS MUSIC LIVES ON, THROUGH THE MANY RECORDING AND PERFORMANCES HE HAS MADE OVER THE YEARS, INCLUDING ON TOTAL FROMAGE. THIS ALBUM IS DEDICATED TO HIS TALENT AND IN MEMORY OF HIS WONDERFUL GIFT **
Feelgood Folk is here, with catchy melodies, Americana, guitars, banjos, ukuleles, real percussion, authentic production techniques, and smile inducing hooks. From warm commercials, to promo's that require something different, TV Ad Sync's to multimedia. Feelgood Folk covers the genre so well it has 1001 uses. We challenge you to listen to these tracks and not raise a smile!
