(qd-4264) Demolee - Stars Falling
[qd-4264] Demolee – Stars Falling
Downtempo never sounded so smooth. What Manila-based producer Demolee does in his first full-length album, Stars Falling, is to create pretty fairy tales of melody and unhurried beats. The resulting 10-track album is chock full of jazzy relaxation that transcends country borders. Think Cafe del Manila instead of Cafe del Mar. Think of lazy breezes, meandering road trips, and star gazing on hot summer nights and you get the point. Demolee (aka Franco Madrid) once again proves that electronic music software doesn’t always have to churn out banging beats.

(qd-4263) Single Eye Perspective - Dear My Friends
Amazing how chance leads to creativity. Single Eye Perspective hooked up his guitar to his laptop running VSTIs and started recording everything using his desktop computer. The long, flowing recordings were then edited into this 4-track EP which is at times charming, and at times folksy, but always emotive even microtonal. The melodies never leave you. The textures never rub off. And maybe that is the genius of Dear My Friends.

STREAM THE RELEASE
Presenting our first public mixtape for your listening pleasure, ELECTRO HOUSE SEP 2010 — a compilation of nine electro house mp3 tracks by: Silverfilter, Neon8, Emorej, Clone feat. Ria Mariano, e-Trinity feat. Sheerin Castillo, Spazzkid and Acid42. Here you can listen to dancefloor gems, download house music that’s sweet as candy, and enjoy four-on-the-floor tracks to appeal to any clubber’s taste.
If this is your first time to visit QED Records, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of releases available. (We’ve been around for 6 years, after all.) We thought it might be nice to offer you an easy way to browse our material by genre, and in this case download house music.
Artist: Ambient Sky | Album: Sky Full of Silent Stars (2009) Release ID: (qd-4262) | Genre: downtempo, ambient, chillout
Full of soothing melodies and lush beats, Sky Full of Silent Stars is a summer downtempo album that invigorates as it relaxes. Ambient Sky (Gerard Pontino) is able to distill all the best elements of his hometown of Bacolod into eleven tracks that celebrate laidback relaxation, smooth waves, and soothing textures. The result is an almost one-hour long tropical vacation in your headphones.
In April of 2004, Clone performed and recorded a live instrumental set at the opening of a restaurant in Manila named Brazil Brazil. The Clone nucleus of Lionel Valdellon (Acid42) and Karlo Samson (One Lone Clone) put together a semi-impromptu, improvised, not fully planned set of bossa nova beats, cool grooves, downtempo vibes, and chillout melodies.
Clone performed a little under three hours of live music, mostly built up from raw loops, track by track. The best hour and 15 minutes of that gig are preserved for posterity in this live set which is part acid jazz, part sampladelica, and all Clone.
With QED Records celebrating its sixth year of existence (Has it really been 6 years already?), it’s high time to thank you all for downloading and enjoying QED’s music over the years. I also want to invite you to connect with QED on our brand new Facebook fan page.
This QED Records Facebook Page is our official page. The other QED Records group page which you might already be a member of, has been closed, is now hidden, and will be going away soon. Join the new one! Here’s one good reason why…
Exclusive Album Via QED’s Facebook Page
As part of the celebration, I will be releasing a unique set of tracks on Monday, August 16, 2010 at noon (Pacific Standard Time) only to those who are members of the QED Page. It will be a unique album which won’t be released anywhere else on the web, and it will only be available to fans of the new QED Records FB page!
What’s the release, you ask? Well, it’s a thank you to all the fans on FB and is made up of unique live material from a regular QED Records artist.
So, shall I see you on Facebook? I sure hope so!
In October of 2005, Japanese vocalist Yu:Mi and Filipino producer Acid42 released a unique collaboration of Japanese children’s songs set to electropop music. The result was an EP called “Kodomo” (which means “Child” in Nihongo) and was release number qd-4230.
This music video is the 2 minute song “Zui Zui Zukorobashi”– a bouncy, silly kids’ song about a rat that gets into trouble by eating the rice supplies. We set the synthpop song to an interesting opensource animation entitled “Life (in a Box)” by animator Tim Cuthbertson, and did really minimal edits. We feel the fun, but sort of sad visuals match the light and slightly sinister music perfectly. Here then is our second music video. Enjoy!
