[qd-4269] not in the mood for dancing – shapes and concepts

Cool and collected, this mature second QED Records release from not in the mood for dancing plays with subtle grooves that ebb and flow, coming up with four tracks that could be used as background music for documentaries or cyborg striptease numbers. Before it ends though, you are reminded that dance music instruments don’t always produce dance music. With a nod towards the title, NITMFD (aka Nelson Tan) posits that tools are tools and the shapes you build are not dictated by the tools; rather they are dependent on the concepts behind the construction.

FILE UNDER: downtempo, electro, electropop, sounds like El Ten Eleven, Squareone, Spazzkid, kinda like the future sound of lotion.

Album Cover for NITMFD - Year II (qd-4265)

[qd-4265] notinthemoodfordancing – Year II

notinthemoodfordancing takes synths and loops and mixes in bouncy hip hop beats to create electropop that squelches and fizzes and floats and sputters and echoes in your head. Year II is a 4-track EP comin in at 16 minutes in length, but bringing you to a cool, laidback mental atmosphere.

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 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!

(qd-4257) Switchboard Of Souls - Dont Bother Me

(qd-4257) Switchboard Of Souls - Don't Bother Me

When Switchboard Of Souls sings: “Don’t bother me, just leave us alone, don’t you know that we’re all just as human,” he sounds the anthem of the alienated and the disenfranchised. It’s a simple enough tune, but the variations do bring new viewpoints to the plate.

The first two original 8-minute-plus tracks utilize a driving darkwave synth with guitars and vocals reminiscent of early New Order, but subsequent versions range from electro 808 State-like arrangements (Common Prayer Mix), to industrial stylings (BlenderMix), to sinister downtempo (Hands & Feet Mix), to 90s pop remix (InstrumentalMix), to new age piano (Sonata), to a combo of everything on the 2 reprises.

(qd-4244) Cocolulu - 8-Bit Love

(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.”
