(qd-4217) Porta - Porta
[QD-4217] : PORTA : Porta (EP)
PORTA is Raymund “Rann” Golamco (formerly of DRIP) on guitars and vocals, and Emorej on everything else. Porta started off as a side project of songwriter Rann. He wrote the songs on a 4-track cassette recorder and distributed it to his musician friends to mangle and remix as they saw fit. This then is but one offering of the results, with sample manipulator Emorej taking rhythmic helm of these songs and turning them into an alluring mixture of funky, Bono Vox-like vocals, Jon Spencer Blues explosive guitars and rockin’ drumloops.

[QD-4210] : FIRST DEGREE : Happy Reality (EP)
First Degree have been around since 1997, performing their brand of industrial machine rock wielding guitars, keyboards, and fiery rap-rock vocals long before it became in vogue.This 2-song EP is a collection of new abrasive, industrial-grade songs which breaks the several-year-long hiatus that First Degree have enjoyed till recently. It’s back to their happy reality of music influenced by Ministry, KMFDM, Nine Inch Nails, and peppered with hip hop beats and guttural screams.
