suchadojikko Chill and great for night driving. Really helps me empty my thoughts after a long day. Favorite track: 40 Winks.

Jordan Carnaggio "Desire" is evidence that electronic music has the potential to impact its listeners on an emotional level while still retaining experimental, melodic qualities, sans the predictability of some other music in its vein. Favorite track: If Not You Then Who.

Juan Miguel Eugenio Glad to have found this artist! The beats of the songs just want to make me unwind and sit around nodding my head side to side slowly. The soft vocals flow in well too, good addition to the chill aura it presents. My first bandcamp purchase and I must say it is very impressive. Love it all!

The album cover with the covering of blue also seems very relaxing.

Keep up the amazing work you make in your bedroom Spazzkid. Favorite track: Marquez.

about

After being on hiatus for almost a year (due to a lot of bicycle riding), I found that deep urge to make music again. Between Fall 2012 through Winter of 2013, I locked myself up in my bedroom everyday and toiled over recording and mixing songs that would eventually form this new album, “Desire.”

I really wanted “Desire” to have an eclectic sound to reflect the different sounds I’ve been listening to while recording the album. In particular, I found Bibio’s 2011 album, “Mind Bokeh” an inspiration in terms of eclecticism and wanted to achieve that same level of variety. I also found myself taking inspiration from a lot of my peers on soundcloud who make beats, post-dubstep, chillwave and techno tracks. I knew I wanted my sound to be very “electronic” but I also made it a point to sound warm, organic and imperfect.

Production-wise, I’d like to believe that this is my best sounding album yet. It has been a great learning process for me making this album. I found myself learning and re-learning new things in recording, mixing and mastering. I had always admired high production sounds but I also wanted the intimacy of a bedroom-produced album.

To preserve the lofi and gritty feel, most of the songs here were recorded in one-go. I also utilized home made percussions and field recordings. Sample sources include old tapes, youtube tutorials and j-pop. All of which were chopped and manipulated then rearranged to be come the backbone on most of these tracks.

Collaboration was also something I heavily pursued in this album: both musically and visually. I collaborated with Davao City’s (Philippines), Skymarines on “Candy Flavored Lips.” The look and feel of the album, which is a nod to the japanese aesthetic, was courtesy of the talented visual artist Krystal Perez and features Shanghai-based photographer and artist, Mang.

I did not have any working theme throughout the album but ended up making songs that I feel are somewhat connected to each other. “Desire” is a deeply emotional and personal album for me and I sincerely hope that you find something in here that you connect to. I invite you to listen to it and if you like it, you would pass it along to your friends and loved ones.

Track Name: Getting to Know You
We've only just begun
But I think you're the one
Breathing life in me
So much more the eye can see
Passing thru my veins
Is the love i have for you
Take it if you please
My heart beating for you
Track Name: 40 Winks
I've been to many places
I've seen so many faces
But none like yours, but none like yours
I missed so many wages
And it seemed like ages
Just hope like yours, just hope like yours
Track Name: Loving Free
I dont know what they told you
but I know Im being true to you
they dont want me to be with you
Dont listen girl Im here for you

They make stories about me (but)
They dont know a thing about me
You and I were meant to be
You and I loving free
Track Name: If Not You Then Who
I feel storm coming
When you told me you cant be with me anymore
You said its been long time coming
We arent on the same page anymore

Build my dreams around you
Put my arms around you
I dont know how to start over
Please tell me its not over
