I discovered electronica music by accident. I met electronica artist Silverfilter a few years back in one of those numerous newsgroups I’ve signed up with. He introduced me to Electronica Manila, an underground movement at that time in the Philippines. Among the pioneers is Acid42, who has maintained QED Records. It features Philippine electronica artists’ music for free. Yes, you heard it right, FREE! Here’s the “about” info of this cool netlabel:

QED Records: Indie Electronica Netlabel

THE LABEL
QED RECORDS is a netlabel originally based in the Philippines, but now recently relocated to Hayward, California. It is the brainchild of Lionel Valdellon. It went online June 25, 2004 as an alternative channel through which he could offer his music free on the web and quickly grew into an online showcase of electronic music made by his countrymen.

THE ETHOS
Free music is good. Online record labels offer a musical diversity unavailable over the counter at your nearest record store. What’s more, because the music is on the web and is free, anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can access it.

This is a means to share the music freely. Music as pure message. It is a revolt against the status quo of music as cliched, banal, disposable commercial product.

In a country like the Philippines, where most commercially available music is either brainless, bandwagon-following novelty pop or plainjane folksy acoustic remakes of older, far more intelligence-deadening radio hits, there are NO avenues for electronic musicians. And yet, the small local community of enthusiasts and home studio producers has thrived. The internet then is an avenue, a way to share and promote the machine music we produce in this little corner of the world.

Welcome to our revolution. Welcome to Q.E.D.

THE NAME
QED : Quod Erat Demonstrandum : that which was to be proven.

A latin phrase written at the end of a mathematical proof to show that the result required for the proof to be complete has been obtained.

No, we are not talking about the clap-clap-point-point strategy of Hillary Clinton. Good Morning America calls it the latest international craze that started in the Philippines. Introducing the Papaya Dance.

It began as a gimmick on the Philippine noontime T.V. gameshow “Game Ka Na Ba (Are You Game)?“, where a correct answer may signal the whole audience to stand up and dance. Filipino choreographer Mel Feliciano together with actor and gameshow host Edu Manzano took an old gay-disco-funk hit from the 1970s, “Papaya”, by Polish jazz vocalist Urszula Dudziack and turned it into a global dance fad–much like the Macarena craze.

Host Edu Manzano said, “The song just kinds of tickles people in the right way… It brings a glint through your eyes, a smile to your face, and a kind of sway to your hips.”

Edu Manzano: World’s Greatest Dance Steps

The Papaya Dance was launched in “Game Ka Na Ba (Are You Game)?” on April 2007 and became so popular that by August, Manzano had already released an entire dance album titled “Edu Manzano: World’s Greatest Dance Steps” with “Papaya” as its carrier single
