“E’ku E’kee” – 1984‘s debut album launch was held in the Dhoshimeynaa Maalam of Dharubaaruge, on the 18th of August 2009. The project comprised of two sessions, one for invitees and VIPs and the rest for ticket holders.
Shiuz opened the event with an appealing repertoire. This event attracted a limited but niche audience, who seemed to appreciate originality.
I came across 1984 as a bunch of creative friends who were seeking their own sound; who were not afraid to sound different. I found their sound popular in many aspects, yet alternative. I also had the pleasure of working with them during production and post-production, on this debut album.
