And please listen to my Fetal Pulse tracks at http://www.rdio.com/artist/Fetal_Pulse/
I’m honoured to announce a Fetal Pulse track has been included in this compilation CD from Electro Freaks! It was Cimmerian Voyage
“The Electro Freaks are proud to announce the release of our 5th album, “Extended Four Play”! Originally slated to be part of Vol 4, we had so many great submissions we decided to split the album. You can enjoy “Four Play” and “Extended Four Play” separately, or together for a combined total of nearly 3 hours. (Whew that’s a lot of four play!)
EFP Vol 5: Extended Four Play picks up where Vol 4 left off with another solid 19 tracks. This time our returning artists lead the way, but we have more exciting new artists joining us too! There’s something for everyone, featuring a wide variety of electronic and dance music styles, including synthpop, drum-n-bass, electro, dubstep, experimental, and everything in between. And of course, as usual it’s 100% free to download via our Bandcamp page!”
Just put this together quite accidentally. Inspired by a drawing from my 5 year old, I scanned it in and started playing with in in GIMP. With his help in effects decisions while sitting on my knee, this is what we came up with
After a bit of a break, Fetal Pulse is back in the studio with the first new single after the Cityscapes album – Cimmerian Voyage
Stay tuned for more singles. For all other tracks including the work for TV, Advertising, and Film, keep an eye on the Fetal Pulse soundcloud account.
Just came across this great mashup using Worlds Collide.
Big thanks to Colatron www.colatron.com :)
“Finally, I’ve had the pleasure of mashing one of my top 10 all-time favourite songs…
Ever since hearing Shadow mash it live on the suitably titled Live! In Tune and On Time, I knew an acapella had to exist somewhere out there. This was confirmed after hearing the mighty Scratch Perverts use it live to great effect on the legendary Unkle Sounds WWIII disc 2 (1999 live recording with frontman James Lavelle). 4 years on, and I’ve found it (along with some other FANTASTIC material I hope to use soon).
On instrumental duties, is Fetal Pulse, the experimental project of Canadian Pedro Costa – wonderful sonic soundscapes that my old mate the Reborn Identity introduced me to a year or so ago.” – from Colatron.com
Fetal Pulse was recently reviewed David Holmes at Imaginary Sound Space.
“Fetal Pulse is the name of an experimental electronic music project by Canadian musician Pedro Costa. ‘Aurora’ was the first video for Fetal Pulse’s debut album Cityscapes, a 10 track album released on the 8th March 2011.
Cityscapes is an instrumental album with a lot of charm and character, mainly down-tempo, part ambient, mostly melodic, the tracks sit perfectly side by side to create a beautifully balanced whole. Pedro puts his musicality to good use conjuring up themes and dynamic changes that always flow and sustain interest. The sounds are colourful and the cleverly designed musical arrangements offer the right sonic combinations at the right times. This is an album that always feels comfortable and welcoming, like a familiar friend whose company you appreciate, time and again. “
Big thanks for the wonderful review

Positive one no less. This is very exciting. Here is the link to the original article:

Debut album from Pedro
AcostaCosta a.k.a Fetal Pulse is titled Cityscapes. The music is Downtempo, Dub and Trip Hop in the style of Sounds From The Ground. It is a slick, urban sound that’s got a good, deep beat behind it. This combination creates a dark, sleek sound that brings forth visions of the city at night. Commuters hustling home after a long day, white tiled caverns with subway trains streaking by. Restaurants preparing for a busy night of hungry customers fueling up for a long night at the club. An excellent debut that brings the heartbeat of the city to life.

Big Thanks to WRUV for this
Proud to be part of this wonderful compilation of electronic music with proceeds to charities for Japan aid.
“Out of the Bush” was the included track from Cityscapes. More information below quoted from the Electro Freaks website. Please do what you can. Best,
- Pedro (aka Fetal Pulse)
“The Electro Freaks are deeply saddened by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We’re all searching for ways to help in this time of need, and we realized we have an entire global community of artists and fans to whom we can reach out. So, we organized Electro Freaks Present Vol 3 in just 1 week as a tribute album and fundraiser for Japan. EFP Vol 3: For Japan compiles an eclectic collection of over 2 hours of music: 28 songs from 28 artists, representing 9 countries worldwide.”
I’ve been asked to contribute a track for a new compilation album with proceeds going to the American Red Cross for Japan. I’m very honoured to be asked. I will be contributing “Out of the Bush” from Cityscapes. I will post more details once the album is released.
