about

Right after releasing ‘Desire’ I became inspired to write a bunch of new music in response to all the affirmation I received from friends and followers and a handful of those songs made it on my forthcoming ‘Promise’ EP. With the material appearing on ‘Promise’ I tried to create and explore uptempo, dancefloor ready arrangements structured into pop songs. Coupled with a newfound confidence in singing, I began bringing the vocals to the forefront of my arrangements. Inspiration for the EP came to me via listening to lots of synth heavy music (Rustie, Hudson Mohawke) as well as new school dance music acts like Cashmere Cat and Disclosure. Collaborations with artists I respect and admire has been something I’ve always pursued throughout my career and for ‘Promise’ EP I’ve had the privilege to work with Sarah Bonito, who wrote lyrics and sings on the track ‘Truly’, and Ryo Baum, who also helped write lyrics for other tracks on ‘Promise’. Moving away from samples and embracing the use of synthetic sounds that I created myself helped me maintain my focus for creating a record that I hope makes people dance and sing along while staying true to my previously established sound.

"Promise is a small introduction to Spazzkid, but one that highlights the project’s two strongest aspects—Redito’s directness and the lush music that makes him one of the most promising artists out of L.A. at the moment." - Pitchfork, 7/10/14

Track Name: Truly (feat. Sarah Bonito)
はじめてなんだこの気持ち
なんなんだろうThis feeling
All I can say is when I'm with you
やることすべてが楽しいんだ
これって幸せ
きっとこれがそうなんだ
Music I'm listening sounds alive
Look out the window it's a rainbow
モノクロテレビを見てたんだ
それが今は colours everywhere
And I don't wanna be anywhere
But 本当にtruly just with you
だから私のそばにいて
行かないでいて
幼い頃に戻ったみたい
責任ちゃんととってよね

I truly never felt this way before
with someone I hopelessly adore
And you know, I hope that our feelings stay this way
Darling I can't have it any other way

今日が昨日になって
明日がすぎていって
今年が去年になって
Time will fly by us but
私の気持ちはかわらないよ
絶対 Never かわらないよ
本気なんだ
言ったよね
I love you forever and ever
朝起きた瞬間
寝る前の last moment
Pink and purple think about you
Think about you
I think about you
嵐がきても飛んで行こう
私の目にはみえるよ
Clear blue sky
All up high
あなたに会えてありがとう

I'm looking forward to this day
It's a long time coming
Lets forever be this way
This way, this way, this way

I'm looking forward to this day
It's a long time coming
Lets forever be this way
This way, this way this way

I truly never felt this way before
with someone I hopelessly adore
And you know, I hope that our feelings stay this way
Darling I can't have it any other way (just wanna say)

I truly never felt this way before
with someone I hopelessly adore
And you know, I hope that our feelings stay this way
Darling I can't have it any other way

Track Name: Promise
Breathing in the air tonight
'cause I'm hoping we'll be feeling alright
Taking in this moment tonight
I'm hoping that this feeling is right

Can you feel it in the air tonight?
I'm thinking that our future is bright
I'm taking all the stars in the sky
And weaving ribbons around your head

(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I wanna be the one for you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I think I'll be the one for you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
To hold you and to cherish you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I promise to the heavens above

Breathing in the air tonight
'cause I'm hoping we'll be feeling alright
Taking in this moment tonight
I'm hoping that this feeling is right

I think I'll be the one for you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)

I promise to the heavens above

(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I wanna be the one for you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
To hold you and take care of you
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Each and everyday love
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I promise to the heavens above
