The electronica scene in Manila may not be as popular as the ubiquitous show bands, but it is kept alive by one of the more well known local electronica acts, Silverfilter. This one-man act just released his second album, Interpreter, which features a collection of remixes that Silverfilter has done over the years. The 12-track CD contains a wide range of music, from chill out to techno to house. The opening track, “The Indefinite…,” showcases Silverfilter’s musical expertise as he transforms rock music into electronica. You would surely be hooked to the pulsating beats and infectious vibe of Silverfilter’s music.
(You can get the album from www.silverfilter.com or www.fliptunes.net.)
