ISADAR – Lessons In Love (Album Credits)

Description:  Originally released in 2005, “Lessons In Love” (a three disc project) is Isadar’s 9th studio album. It is styled in Pop, being rhythmic and vocal. The Fairlight CMI was utilized in the making of some of these recordings and the entire album has been revisited, remixed, and remastered in this new “10th Anniversary” reboot edition. The new remixed and re-mastered album contains 31 tracks along with 5 bonus cuts. At the time of recording in 2004, the album was an attempted exercise to produce one song a week during the course of one year. To stay on this ambitious schedule several remixes were made instead – and these redundant tracks (which were made more obsolete after remixing took place) have been left off this new lineup. Due to the original quick production schedule, remixing and re-mastering was necessary in order to bring the quality up to par with Isadar’s other vocal releases. Isadar states, “I saw many holes in the raw arrangements and many places that needed extra care and attention that time restrictions didn’t allow when I first produced the album…” – Mainya Music Entertainment (January 2015)
