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.
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.
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!

2010 marks another landmark in the QED Records story. We recently set out on a journey which we may never return from– the journey to create moving images from the QED Records catalog.

(qd-4245) Acid42 - Nykto - Original Soundtrack
[QD-4245] Acid42 : Nykto: Original Soundtrack
Nykto by Acid42, is a series of tunes which comprise the original soundtrack to the 12-minute independent short video of the same title, directed by Elvert dela Cruz Bañares, which in turn, was loosely based on a poem entitled “Darkness” by Arris Rivera. The music is a mix of ethnic and electronic, world and urban, dark and light melodies, silence and rhythm, meandering into hope and fulfillment, as eventually all darkness must pass.
The music was created by Acid42 (Lionel Valdellon) without having seen or known anything about the film except for a brief conceptual phrase: darkness to light. The album also includes remixes by Bleedingboy|Soundtrack and Emorej, two more Philippine electronica producers and regular QED Records contributors.
FILE UNDER: worldbeat, soundtrack, electronica, ethnotronica, less morose than Morricone, world-y like Peter Gabriel, more alive than Dead Can Dance.
DETAILS: 7 mp3s, encoded at CBR and VBR (192 kbps quality), 44.1 khz stereo. | Released: July 5, 2007.

(qd-4244) Cocolulu - 8-Bit Love
[QD-4244] :Cocolulu : 8-Bit Love
Cocolulu (who is now known as Spazzkid) is geeky synthpop at its best. And 8-Bit Love combines a 20-something’s view on life in post-Eraserheads Manila, and is filled with bright lyrics and squeaky synths. Strangely enough, the music sounds like it was lifted from a whole lot of 80s synthpop groups, which either tells you that the synth is back, or, even the youth of today are caught in a timewarp. Included in the release is a remix by Acid42 for “Panda Extravaganza.”
FILE UNDER: synthpop, electropop, electro, electronica, new wave
DETAILS: Five MP3s at 192 kbps.One MP3 at 112 kbps. 44.1kHz stereo | Total Running Time: 26:58 | Released: June 16, 2007
