Audio Production Review by T-Beiz
Olowogbogboro by Nathaniel Bassey
Feature: Wale Adenuga
Produced by Rotimikeys

Colour: very tricky one here (Hillsong classics maybe. Rotimikeys, the producer, would be in the best position to say)
Genre: Contemporary Worship Music
Song structure: Modern
Intro->Verse 1-> Chorus -> Verse 2 ->Chorus 2 -> Bridge-> Chorus-> Chant-> Outro
Energy: Well spread rising energy across verses and Choruses
Loudness: -8 LUFs
Tempo: 81 bpm

Bass: Delightful walking bass line with bass riffs and slurs
Percussion: recurring , sounds of tambourine, bottle, shakers etc
Drums: Constant controlling basic Kick , riding toms, well placed rolls, hats ,cymbals, crashes with the live feel
Keys: Distinct sweet Pianos
Guitars : Clean sounding guitars both Acoustic and Electric

Main Vocals:
Nathaniel’s voice: audible and clean
Wale Adenuga’s voice: audible and clean

Backup Voxs
Back up vocals: Harmonious Chorus overall
Adlibs: Well placed

Compression : Song and instruments appears to have been well compressed
EQ: Full Spectrum used
0-500 hz : Obvious rise/boost(especially around 100Hz) in this area but not as much the usual rise/boost in electronic genres
500hz- 2khz : Quite a number of mid instrument. Normal peaks within this area
2khz -5 Khz : Well filtered peaks
5khz- 20Khz: Tapered off high frequencies here
Reverb: Smooth and surrounding
Delay: echo intervals , reeling effect , sweetly heard in parts of the chorus
Stereo/Pan effects : Serious use of pan effects due to multiple vocals, instruments, etc. Good balance of stereo effects

Mastering dynamics : Solid
Multiband dynamics : Bass , Mids , Tops cleanly balanced
Clipping and Distortion: Meters are joyful here.

One mention: it appears different EQ effects can be felt on some vocals and instruments.

      Thank you Elizabeth. The song was born out of one of the Hallelujah Challenge series. It’s a wonderful blessing.
