Just when it’s almost over for Demolee, Electronica Manila releases its second compilation “Electronica Manila: Two”, an online compilation album featuring various local electronica artists such as Emorej, Mighty Dax, SPiNTECH, Diego Mapa to name a few.
The album features my song that I wrote two to three years ago more or less. It’s called “Deviation”. Apart from my usual lush-pads-laden-ambient-chillout songs, this one’s very different. Download, listen, and find out how I turned away from my usual songs.
Announcing the launch of my favorite manila based synthpop group WATARI’s MACHINE! Formed by my friend Nono Acosta (a.k.a Names Are For Tombstones).
“Watari’s Machine was originally random live collaborations between Noel Acosta and Boy Ramos (of The Thought) who both are members of the Philippine music community Electronica Manila, Acosta decided to make it an entirely new music project. Named after a song from Acosta’s main music project Names Are For Tombstones (NAFT), Watari’s Machine became official during the latter half of 2005. Acosta imagined it to be an antithesis of NAFT incorporating an 80s-inspired and more dance-oriented synthpop/electropop sound.” - WM Biography (From the site)
I’ve had the chance to remix WM’s song Watari’s Machine before, guess I’ll upload it here on my next post!
