Today, Eyedress releases his brand new mixtape Hearing Colors. This release, his fullest statement to date features 12 brand new tracks recorded in his bedroom in Manila. It's the follow up to his debut EP Supernatural (released last year on Abeano) and is available to listen to and download from eyedress.hearing-colors.com
Based in Quezon City, Manila, Eyedress is the moniker for 23 year old Filipino producer, Idris Vicuña. This album was recorded using Fruity Loops in Eyedress' bedroom on a PC laptop handed down to him by his father. Since his emergence he has supported the likes of Jungle, Grimes and Mac DeMarco and earned plaudits from the likes of I-D, The Observer andDazed & Confused. Those who caught his debut UK live shows last month were captivated - with NME describing one as "far from the cliché of a bedroom producer as it's possible to imagine - it's punk as fuck, weird and utterly compelling".
