Based just off Baker Street, Buzzwazz is a music production company and record label. Founder and songwriter Peter Morris is looking for a female lead singer, with a modern style like that of Anne Marie or Mabel. He makes pop songs with an urban flavour, and the backing tracks are recorded and ready for a vocal. The agreement is a one-off 50% split of mechanical royalties. If you’d like to learn more and hear some tracks with a mind to recording some songs – send an MP3 of your singing voice to email@example.com.

CoStartup & Go are currently recruiting for a client who uses Ableton extensively for his live shows. We can’t reveal their identity here but rest assured the project is an exciting one. They are looking for someone with a comprehensive understanding of the programme to help him pull together tracks.
- Warping songs
- Arranging songs into clips (intro, verse, bridge, chorus, outro)
- Some DJ’ing via Ableton between songs.
- Elements of editing MIDI clips used to send information to an external vocal processor.
- Collecting audio from a long improvised session and chopping the best bits into a shorter wav file, to be uploaded to Soundcloud.
- Finding acapellas for hip-hop songs and writing notes on the vocal production (e.g. doubling of voice/pitch down effects) for the piece.
- Knowledge of scales and keys, and editing melodies in these keys, would be helpful but not essential.
- Professional attitude
Face to face meetings will be required once weekly. The remainder of the work can be done remotely.
