Manila-based prodigy...

It's an oft observed truism, but the internet really has made the world a smaller place.

Want some evidence? Well how about Eyedress... A prodigal producer based in the Philippines, Idris Vicuña works on a hand-me-down laptop loaded with Fruity Loops.

Yet the sounds he's able to create beggar belief. Drowsy, hazy hymns to the surreal nature of modern life, the sighing vocals are matched to clinical, sharpened beats which recall everyone from Clams Casino to Hudson Mohawke's more pared down moments.

Placing his music online, Eyedress appeared on the Lief mixtape before Oneman took up his cause. Now ever-essential UK base blog Abeano is on the case, launching their new label wing with a release from the producer.

'Supernatural' EP is set to be released on December 2nd, but before then Eyedress has placed the video for new track 'Nature Trips' online. Shot in Manila, the clip was directed by local artist Julius Valledor and edited by Eyedress himself.

Hyper stylised, each scene seems to lear with a palpable sense of menace before ending with a lengthy shot of the city at night.

Watch it now.
