Eyedress is Idris Vicuna a young Filipino fellow that has taken over the reigns from Freddy Aguilar as the best Filipino music artist in the last 30 years. For those of you who don’t know Freddy Aguilar don’t worry you don’t have to but what you should take notice of is Idris’s project “Eyedress” that portrays a new insight in electronica in the Pacific region. Noted for using Fruityloops on his first EP, Eyedress comes as a minimalist, eerie and beautiful explosion of electronic music.
