A busy weekend at Almighty Towers!

Great new mix in, and in pre - production today.

3000 new vinyl's and CD's to grade and price for our new vintage vinyl business. Some absolutely 'mint' classic Almighty Mixes on vinyl from Matt Waterhouse, who use to be head honcho at promotions company Hyperactive, and now our manager for remixes. It is easy it is to forget what mixes we have done over the years. Had completely forgotten about Steps 'H&Claire' 'Half A Heart'. Reminds us of our close friend, and very first producer Ian Gant who we lost last year.

Also came across for the first time Giorgio Moroder produced France Jolie 'Girl In The 80's'. Always nice to find music that you missed first time around. Always loved France Jolie's 'Come To Me'

Ah, H&Claire - we hardly knew ye... :wink: Actually, I quite like "Half A Heart" and have both Almighty mixes.

And I also just recently discovered the Giorgio Moroder-produced France Joli album ATTITUDE featuring "Girl in the 80s." A great find for 80s synth-pop fans. Also look for her WITCH OF LOVE album which, while not produced by Moroder, has much the same sound and style. Both were recently released on Gold Legion CDs with 12" bonus tracks. Gold Legion has a great catalogue of 70s and 80s dance CD releases remastered with bonus tracks. Maybe Almighty could strike a deal to distribute their CDs in the UK.

Almighty Towers 15/10/12

Monday is as always the busiest day at Almighty Towers with everybody in!

There's usually four people in on a Monday and once everybody has a cup of tea and a catch up - this weekend's X Factor was the hot topic of conversation today, and that unbelievable F sharp descending note Ella hit in 'Loving You'! - we start going through all our lovely customer emails and packing up orders that have come in over the weekend... as well as some of the more *ahem* boring admin jobs!

We're so excited about our upcoming album 'Almighty Presents: We Love Passion', which has been a long time in the making, and we just know that our fans are going to appreciate the hard work that's gone into it. We're just waiting for it to arrive from the printers this week, and then our priority will be processing and sending them out to our Almighty Club members as soon as possible!

Once they have been sent to our Club members, they will then be available for the general public to buy in the Almighty store about a week or so later. :)

In other news, our whiz of an IT guy recently updated the Almighty store to allow us to offer promotional discounts and special offers to customers. This weekend we ran a '20% off any CD album' offer when entering the promotional code 'PROMO20' at the checkout - and what a great success it was!

We're so pleased so many of you took advantage of the special offer - make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the next one!

And we also have some exciting new non-Almighty albums coming soon to the store - 'Disco Discharge: Cruising the Beat' and 'Pink Pounders' so make sure you keep an eye out for these too!

Happy Monday everyone!

Almighty Towers - 16/10/12

by The Almighty Crew » Tue Oct 16, 2012 4:00 pm

Afternoon all! :)

Nice blue and sunny, but very blustery, autumn day here at HQ! Just 3 of us in today and we've been busy getting preparations ready for the Club mailout that is due to be processed tomorrow! Double checking opt ins and packing hundreds of CDRs into wallets with artwork! Our Club Manager Carmen has been very busy ensuring all the necessary member details are correct before processing begins and taking care of the Club Member queries!

We've been holding interviews today for a new member of the Almighty Crew! No decisions just yet but we are looking forward to welcoming a new addition to the team soon! :) Very exciting!

On the office playlist today - we've had a listen to the new single by Girls Aloud 'Something New', the fantastic Bond theme 'Skyfall' by Adele (we are so excited for the new Bond film coming out soon!) and 'Ride' the latest single to be released by the gorgeous Lana Del Rey (which comes with a very lengthy video which involves quite a lot of bikers!!) - to name just a few!

Lots of pricing and sorting has taken place from the growing piles of CDs and Vinyls that are accumulating around the office! So that's keeping us very busy!

Busy couple of days to come now! But we're ready for it!
Hope you've all had a good day! :D x

My my, it's almost like Almighty's very own reality soap, including auditions for a new crew member.
What qualities are you looking for anyway :P

Move over The X Factor! We can picture it now 'Have you got the A factor?!' :P
Well, for starters, to be welcomed as part of the Almighty Crew you have to be very hard-working, efficient, friendly and full of ideas! It's also a bonus if you can make a good cup of tea/coffee...! ;)

Greetings from Almighty Towers! :)

Quick post today as we have had a VERY busy day at HQ! It's that time of the month again...Club Member mailout time! 4 of us have been working non-stop today to get everything done as quickly as possible: sorting the artwork for our new releases, packing up each individual mailout with varying opt ins and any requests, processing each order, then getting them all ready in time for the post at 3pm! So hopefully they will be with our Club Members very soon! :D

In other news, we've got one mix that's just left the production studio and gone off for final mix down, and another one straight on to the cooker!! Very exciting! Can't give away too much more for now but it won't be long until they are revealed! ;)

Happy Wednesday to all! x

Is it the return of a "vintage" Almighty singer? Maybe Jackie 'O' or Tracy Ackerman?

Good afternoon! :D

Another busy day at HQ! Our lovely Club Manager Carmen has been in to take care of all things Club Member and continue with the preparations for the November releases and mailout!

We've had some more stock delivered, so we now have more copies of the very successful non-Almighty 'Disco Discharge' albums to make available on our store!

On our office playlist today we've been listening to our fantastic Belle Lawrence 'When Love Takes Over', Rihanna's current single 'Diamonds' and somehow we found ourselves listening to 'Agadoo' by Black Lace..! Well, as they say, variety is the spice of life!

Hope everyone has had a good day and is looking forward to the fast-approaching weekend! x

Although the Almighty office is always closed on Friday’s, there is still plenty to keep us busy.

Studio 1 in has multiple mixes going on, enough to keep them busy for the next month! The second front line production completed this week is now being uploaded for mix down over the weekend. We have another really great project to start tomorrow (Saturday), we think Almighty fans will particularly love this.

November’s in house productions are well in hand. Vocals being done in London next week, and for the first time in we are trying out a new vocalist out in Gloucestershire.


Have a lovely weekend we're off to the races, until Sunday, when we are back working again on to the vintage vinyl with extra hands on board to get those orders out.

Almighty Towers - 22/10/12

by The Almighty Crew » Mon Oct 22, 2012 3:07 pm

Good afternoon all :D

The Monday crew has been busy today! After replying to customer emails that came in over the weekend and packing up orders, we processed a few late Club mailouts and have been sifting through more applications for the new member of the team! We should hopefully be holding some more interviews this week so fingers crossed we'll find that perfect addition to Almighty!

It's that time of year again when we have to administer the royalties... sending out statements and paying invoices to various companies - it's all very long and complicated (we won't bore you with the details!) but is a vital part of running a label! Plus, we only have to do it twice a year, so can't moan too much!

We're also making sure our brand new album 'Almighty Presents: We Love Passion' is ready for general release to the public next week, so keep an eye out for an email in your inbox soon with all the details if you've subscribed to our newsletter - if not, sign up now at www.almightyrecords.com and make sure you don't miss out!

We've been uploading MP3s, WAVs, artwork, blurbs etc to the website ready for release next week... but if you can't wait til then, you can hear clips on the Almighty Music Player now!

We also came across hundreds of CDs we'd forgotten about in the vaults over the weekend so have spent a few hours organising, labelling and filing these away too!

November's releases are looking good already - one of our vocalists is recording today and we can't wait to hear what they've done! We've also got the artwork started and selected some colours... we're thinking red and white to start getting people in the mood for Christmas nice and early! :D

And playing in the office today we have Taylor Swift's infectious new single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', which she performed live on The X Factor UK last weekend, and the latest Almighty remix of Peter Wilson's upcoming single 'Laser Light'!

If you haven't heard it yet, have a listen to a preview here: Laser Light (Almighty Club Mix).

Phew.... so much to do in such little time! Hope everybody's weeks have got off to a flying start like ours, and stay tuned for more updates later this week!

Afternoon everyone!

Today started off as a normal day with checking emails and orders and ended in a little craziness with confirming license requests for a very exciting project in the pipeline!

We interviewed another potential HQ member this morning and have secured some impressive second interviews for next week!

Spent a lot of time sorting through the VIP Forum Lounge and will be sending an email to Club Members next week about ensuring their usernames are active and up to date so we can all share the love!

A few of us pre-ordered the new Girls Aloud album by 3pm to be in with a chance of getting first access to their 2013 concert tickets! Fingers crossed!

Good afternoon everyone! :D

Another very busy day in the office today, with just two of us in and the rest working off-site and in London!

We've been finalising the finishing touches to the artwork for our November new releases, they're looking great!

We're getting ready for the general release of our We Love Passion album, not long to go now which is very exciting! We'll be putting up a YouTube preview shortly to give you a sneaky peak!

We have been previewing some potential new non-Almighty releases that we may make available soon!

Our October competition ends in one weeks time and we've had a fantastic response! Spent a good while sorting through the answers in the emails today! We'll be picking a winner next week, so if you have entered then keep an eye out! You could be one of the lucky winners!

On the office playlist today we've been listening to Maroon 5's latest single 'One More Night', Adele's 'Skyfall' (the Bond premiere last night has got us all very excited for the film's release!) as well as the non-Almighty previews mentioned above! ;)

More updates to come tomorrow!

Hello all!! :D

We've had a good day getting on with lots of exciting things (some of which is Top Secret for now! So can't reveal too much just yet! :wink: )

We have had one mix approved and now on with the next one! :D We've been discussing our favourite Almighty mixes in the office today, there's too many to choose a favourite one!

We have put up an exclusive sneaky preview of our new and long-awaited album 'We Love Passion' on YouTube. It's due for release on Monday from the Almighty store, but we just couldn't wait any longer and wanted to let you guys take a listen!

Here's a link to the 'Now' preview:

And here's a link to the 'Then' preview:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YrsAOyMf7w&feature=plcp

We've also been sorting through new Club Member applications today, which is very exciting, so hopefully we will be welcoming some new members into the club in the near future!

That's all for now! Hope everyone is looking forward to their weekend!

Charade - For Your Love is great.

Probably been asked before, but was it Cher on Vox?
