Recording for José de Castro together with Melvin Lee Davis, recordings done at Coy-sound studios.
José told us following: "I only wrote to them [Simon and
Melvin] on their website. The answer of both were the same, "If we don't
like what you do, we don't do it, because in this kind of style of music
we have to be on the right height of what we do". You can imagine the
pression that it supposed to me waiting to know the answer. When they
told me Yes, It was incredible. What I do was to sent them the sessions
with the guitars recorded on my home and the drums and bass programmated,
and they recorded their parts in their studios. It was really easy and
economic to work in this way. Since then, we keep a good relation and
it is possible that on October or November, I am on tour in Europe with
Melvin. It is not still confirmed but we'll see what happened."
