New song : Ordinary Day

(August 2019)

Ordinary day?  No way! When did you last talked to Donald Trump, Jesus Christ and Wolfgang Mozart? When did you last quote HP Lovecraft, pope Francis and William Shakespeare? Must have been sometime huh? By the way: we didn't kill the bull, the whale or JC nor have we any plans to do any harm to mister Trump ...

Watch the video ...

Tribute to Dr. John

(1941 - 2019)

Walk on guilded splinters
Gris gris on my doorstep
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né
Mardi Gras make ya fingers snap
Join the second line
Be sure to get yer groove on
Today I wanna thank you
Dr. John, Dr. John
They call him: Dr. John

Remixing Kylie Minogue

We love to do a remix every now and then so when we stumbled upon the lead vocals of Kylie's Slow we just couldn't resist. All the instrumental parts are new, just the vocals are from the 2003 original. There's still some bleed from a synth underneath her voice if you listen close enough. The song was written by Kylie herself, Dan Carey and Emilíana Torrini.

A word from Henk ...

2017 Has been a great year thanks to our mighty friends in high, low and well hidden places! So here's to you Donald, Jong-un, Vladimir, Recep Tayyip and so many others. We're all brothers and sisters here in The Human Zoo. Be careful though, like the dinosaur in this funky little tune, you also might be on the brink of extinction.

Happy New Year!

Kim Jong-un laughing

Looking Back @ 2017

Jump to 0.40 min to skip the intro ...2017

As the name of this site suggests: here you can let us compose a piece of music especially for you. A piece of music could be anything like:

1 A complete song with words and music. Maybe your first (or next) hit song, music for video's/movies, games, websites, presentations, commercials etc. etc.

2 Already have some musical parts or idea's yourself? Sent them in and we'll work them out for you into a complete recording.

3 A certain addition to your own music like an arrangement, lyrics, a guitar- or keyboard solo.

4 A mixdown of audio tracks you recorded yourself.

What makes our method special is the participation you'll have in it as a client. We'll ask you lots of questions like : Who will be the singer? (male/female) What's his/her voice range? Approximate duration and subject of the song? What instruments should we use? Who are you targeting? Maybe you know of an existing piece of music we could be modeling after?

As soon as we have a clear picture of your wishes we'll start off by sending you a quick demo. At this point you can still have your say so we can make some minor adjustments. We'll then start working on the final, professional sounding product. You won't need to go into a studio again to re-record all the tracks. Of course you are free to do so and in that case you could use our tracks as a reference. We'll keep the stems for further processing like remixing. Want to add some of your own audio, FX, samples or beats? No problem.

So for a short musical flash under a radio commercial or a complete movie soundtrack this is your place to be! We do C&W, R&B, Rap, Hip-Hop, all kinds of Pop, Rock and Dance music. We're not afraid to do a bolt attempt do mix these genres. Our versatility is our biggest asset!

And please keep in mind: We're not soldiers in this insane loudness war! We're lovers not fighters so if you want your tracks to be LOUD then turn that knob that says 'Volume' on your device clockwise. But if you insist and to keep the customer satisfied we'll slam some fancy plugin's across our master bus to achieve the desired loudness ...

Absolutely Stunning

We really didn't expect this modern sounding piece of music. We thought the team looked a bit old fashioned but we now see that these guys bring in a lot of experience through their years in the music business. On top of that Henk will make sure that that the results are always top notch..

Original way of working

What a great way of collaborating with these guys. They really involve you in all their decisions concerning your song. Contact them, have your say and they fit it in somewhere, somehow. I wasn't totally happy with a vocal on a track they did and after having consulted them I was able to have our group's singer to do the job. Talking about global collaboration!

Time and money saving

Looking back it's great working with them. It's a real time and money saver. I planned to sent a demo of a song I'd written to a record label. Luckily I got smart and had HK do the arrangement and the recording of instruments. I was very pleasantly surprised when I heard the final result. I think about doing some more tracks with them.

 

If you have a creative project in mind, get in contact with HK Songwriting today! When it comes to affordable songwriting, we are the first you should contact. We are looking forward to hearing from you. We'll keep your name and email address strictly to ourselves!

Jobs

From the vaults of our studio we dug up some 30 years (!) old demo’s.
We think these songs need a second chance. So we’re busy laying down the drum parts and some basic chord progressions. We want you to sing them!

For We Are A Rainbow, a melodic pop song, we would like a clear male voice and a bit husky low female one for the harmonies.

Judy, a C&W ‘tear in my beer’ song could do with a whiskey soaked voice.

When I Met You, a rock ballad, needs a Bryan Adams-like voice.

Could you do that? Let us know if you wanna give it a try and what key suits you best.
We’ll send you the basic backing track so you can do your part at home or in the studio of your choice.
Have a listen to the demo’s first .… Here’s a short compilation of the three tracks.
Download the complete mp3’s with text sheet here.

Legal stuff

We hate to bore you with some small print and red tape but there's a few things here we must get straight before you step in here with us.

OKAY, take me there ...
