DSD Stereo SuperAudio CD
How Deep is the Ocean
Yamina is our new Jazz vocalist and some of you may know a little about her, while in the end of 2013, we recorded 4 songs with her in native DSD128 which was offered as an EP on our www.dsdfile.com which was a real success while so many people asked us when her album is coming!! So the decision was made immediate to record on album with her, and here it is!
It is a conceptual album which is based on the Danish author H.C. Andersen's dramaturgy of the story of The Little Mermaid, and the genre is soft jazz with colors Latin rhythms! The full story is inside the booklet. The music is a combination of songs what is normally known as the American Songbook, plus Yamina's own compositions!
This is also our first album recorded in 8 channel native DSD128 and of course mixed 100% analogue, i.e. it has never been in the PCM domain which is also what native stands for. As some of you might know, Opus 3 Records was the first record company in the world to offer download of native DSD128 in February 2013!
This is also the first album that will be both released as an SACD and offered to be downloaded in DSD64 & 128 at the same time. It might be a strange time to release an album in the end of November, but done for a special reason and is in stock now!
