This a cool birthday ecard duo! We have a regular version of the card, as well as an ‘unplugged/acoustic’ version.
For the acoustic version, we’re showing a smoother, more sentimental side of Jamgrams. ’One Year Better’ is a song that wants you to focus not on being ‘older’, but on getting ‘better’. “Just like fine wine, you’re better with time” is what Brett Hammon croons as the acoustic guitar strums on out. Truly something special…and the subtle graphics by Rajesh Bhavnani accompany the music quite well. A very classy ecard.
For the regular version, we’ve got drums and a bassline, and the mood of the card feels a little more upbeat. Hasan Odom’s graphics also add a lot of energy and humor, as they follow the life and times of someone who is a work-in-progress that keeps on getting better.
Remember the good old days of breakdancing, popping and locking? You had your Puma or Adidas track suit with some cardboard and a boombox on the ground? Planet Rock and Kraftwerk got heavy rotation, and a whole new culture was born. Well, here at Jamgrams, we love electro music, and this Happy Birthday ecard is a tribute to those glory days. Bullzyye outdid himself on the beat – it has all of the key Kraftwerk and Planet Rock sounds, but with some updated sub bass to make the speakers rattle Hasan took the graphics to the next level with the outer space motif and the funky robots gettin their groove on with a classic pop-lock battle! Also, the classic 80′s video game elements really take you back to the good old days…you have got to check this one out!
I don’t know what to say about this birthday ecard…other than it’s one of my favorites. You’ve got the cool rapper with his crew wishing you a happy birthday, and their serious expressions while holding balloons is priceless! And I love how homeboy is riding down the street with the hydraulics going crazy! Also, the beat on this one is bumpin’, courtesy of Bullzyye. Add Hasan Odom on the drawing board and we have what I think is an instant classic. By all means, check it out!
