BSWC One-a-Day: Mark Redito - I am Shift
Let this one build. A simple 8-bit melody that builds layer and layer rewarding you with some 80s synth sound vocals. I was just in California talking with some people I met about how the synth is back in! It sure is in today's selection.
"8-Bit Love combines a 20-something's view on life in post-Eraserheads Manila, and is filled with bright lyrics and squeaky synths."
The author, Cocolulu, aka Mark Redito, describes himself as falling in love with The Beatles and trying to imitate Ringo's playful drumming (age 10). Then at age 16 he joined the punk rock scene before "growing out of it" and moving into electronica. The release, 8-Bit Love [qd-4244], is the latest from QED records, a netlabel featuring electronica from the Philippines.
