EP Re-release: David Wu By Request (2004)
In the early 2000s, MySpace was the de facto king of social media. This coincided with a PC that I special-ordered, containing all the best components (at the time) for me to produce music. The first of these releases was this EP.
Prior to production, I blasted out a MySpace blog requesting the ladies to request songs – I would fulfill the first three requests. The requested songs were “Who Knows” by Musiq, which I didn’t know at the time, plus “Can You Stand the Rain” and “Make it Real” which I knew well enough to play.
Of the recordings, “Can You Stand the Rain” received the most “hits”, and I still get good feedback about this.
So here’s a welcome back to this EP, which has seen its existence through MySpace, Friendster, Facebook, and my various website iterations. Years later, there would be a “Volume 2”, and I’ll be re-releasing that soon as well.
