Eyedress talks being 4’11” and scared his first time performing, getting signed and dropped from XL, Prefuse 73 being the guardian angel he’s never met, and performs “Jealous” live in studio…
Eyedress is effortlessly cool. His latest record “Let’s Skip to the Wedding” is an exercise exploring every genre that made him such a chill dude. With styles ranging from Joy Division inspired 80’s new wave goth, to Zapp & Roger funk fueled vocoder anthems, the record is simultaneously all over the place, and absolutely cohesive. That’s probably because he carries all the heavy lifting from song-writing, to production, to instrumentation himself.
Born in the slums of the Philippines, raised in the San Clemente anarcho-punk scene, before heading back to Manila where he really found his sound, Eyedress has already lived a lot of life. Now with a newborn son having just arrived, his record “Jealous” is going viral almost a year after its release.
Hear us talk about being 4’11” and scared his first time performing, getting signed and dropped from XL, and how Prefuse 73 is the guardian angel he’s never met.
