A totally new concept: music made especially for
the car that's NOT just booming bass notes!
Several key magazines and distributors in the Car
Audio field have approached Hermosa Records with the concept
of creating a label that will produce CDs especially for the
car envirinment, for those consumers who don't neccessarily want
to hear the basic "Bass-n-Drum" pounding synth records
usually associated with Car Audio. The reasoning is: many car
audio enthusiasts are actually interested in Music, not just
Booming down the street.
The car is the PERFECT place to enjoy music, as
many top recording engineers and producers will attest. Most
pro studio guys do their best listening in their cars, with powerful
multi-amped systems to reproduce the highs, mids and lows seperately.
The car is actually a perfect enclosed listening environment,
a capsule or sound stage, with very few reflective surfaces to
distract from the pure audio signal. If you've never heard your
favorite recording played through a big Car Audio sound system,
you haven't LIVED!
Traffic Jam Records begins this adventure with a car
audio Tester and Demo CD. The first 20 cuts are actually
test sounds to show-off or test your Car Audio system. There
are giant kick drums, bass notes and guitar chords, along with
vocal phrases, keyboard synth tones and snippets of music. Then
there are ten whole songs, mostly instumentals, which are tracks
of music played by top LA session players and gigging club bands.
These tracks were selected specifically for their ability to
make car stereos sound great, you can hear the punchy bass notes,
the sizzling cymbal definition, the guitar and sax solos that
make the car the sweetest spot for music listening. FINALLY...
a car audio record label run by musicians!
Along with providing the music, Traffic Jam Records
provides the professional installation advice- helpful in attaining
the best car audio system for the money. Link
