Eighty8th was formed in late 2007 by Drew Krag, a producer out of Chicago, IL. Inspired by the dynamics of live performance, and the diversity of computer generated audio, Drew began to compose songs that combine live performances and sequenced electronic music.
With the addition of Matt Nelson, a very talented pianist also based out of Chicago IL, eighty8th matured into a full bodied experience. The end result is what you hear now. Its not mainstream, its not normal, it is a unique and beautiful sound.
Everyone who has been a part of this project, is a true music lover. The way they see it, they love to create this music, and they would love to share it with those who will listen.
Open your heart, mind, and body will follow.
Recorded at Plant 9 Studios Chicago IL June 2007 - June 2008
Under the influence of Lo:Fi Records.
peace and love.
