The development of the Single:
The single “Star Of The Show” is so far unique. It is a display of the musically development of the group Voicemail. The lyrics attract both male and female. They embody the feeling of a night at a club and leaving all the daily stress behind. This is satisfying the european listeners, which like to dance, but does not appreciate vulgar, insulting or aggressive lyrics.
The instrumental was created by an audio engineer, who lived in Jamaica. Because of that he has a good understanding of the european music taste and the jamaican expectations. The mixing engineer is an exclusive producer of the german Jay-Z “Samy Deluxe”. He knows the kind of baselines expected by the german club audience, edited the baseline according to it and mixed
the vocals. The mastering engineer is residing in germany and works across all genre of music. His task was to give the song an objective pre-master and the average listener an appealing sound. The graphic work was done by the Ggraphics Company from Tel Aviv. They design flashy, for the young target group fitting covers. The loud colors were chosen wisely, especially for the sale in
