(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-4260 Silverfilter - Tribes, EFX and 307
Silverfilter (Cyril Sorongon) used to gig around the Philippines using a formidable array of hardware synthesizers and samplers, including Korg Electribes, Pioneer EFX DJ effects unit, and a Roland MC-307 groovebox.
Before he saw the light and switched over to a laptop / software and MIDI controller setup, he recorded for posterity this full-on live dance set which features the techno, breaks, and hard-hitting house styles he’s come to be known for. Over more than 2 hours, Silverfilter treats us to his energetic spirit where he bleeds electronic dance into our ears via his hardware. Bring on the house!

Email interview with Silverfilter . September 4, 2008.
Cyril Sorongon creates music for a living. When he isn’t finishing a musical score for an advertising jingle, he’s rushing off to play at a live gig somewhere in the city as Silverfilter, or as member of one of many bands. When he’s free, he’s online, moderating the Electronica Manila (EM) mailing list which sprouted sometime around 2001 in answer to a direct need for fellow electronic music lovers in the Philippines (and around the world) to figure out how to turn a love for this music into an active creation of this music.

(qd-4249) Various Artists: Basics - The ElectronicaManila General MIDI Project
ElectronicaManila is a collective of active musicians and producers of Philippine descent, who were brought together by a mailing list of the same name in 2001, and have since gone on to produce shows, albums, projects and this compilation.
BASICS is a project that spawned from the idea: come up with one song using only the general MIDI set of instruments, and pool together the results for a compilation. What you have here is a collection of idiosyncratic grooves ranging from techno to ambient that capture the distinct flavor of ElectronicaManila.
DETAILS: Eight MP3s at 256-320 kbps.44.1kHz stereo. |Total Running Time: 32:53| Released: April 20, 2008.
