[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.

[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.

(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.”

[QD-4237] : SPiNTECH : Sonnets To The Past (EP)

SPiNTECH (aka Mick Barroga) puts together 5 retro-spiced synth tunes that pits his love for keyboards with the music he grew up with.

(qd-4219) Brank : your path is a strange and difficult one

[QD-4219] : BRANK : your path is a strange and difficult one (EP)

Brank’s “your path is a strange and difficult one” is a fun, playful electropop romp in a playground made of insulated wires and silicon chip flowers. At times harmonc, and at times all too discordant, this synthesized pop music is created specifically for your world of play and rest. The 11-minute, 3-song EP covers 2 moods: frenetic energy and slow introspection, and manages to insert life into plastic machinery. All hail, Brank from southern California!

FILE UNDER: IDM, electropop. synthpop, electro, more playful than a robot puppy, sadder than a hard drive with bad sectors.
