WHY: MY 2015 LSS / BLAME IT ON NOONTIME SHOWS, FB, MOVIES AND FM RADIO


MY 2015 LSS / BLAME IT ON NOONTIME SHOWS, FB, MOVIES AND FM RADIO

Is it redundant to say the word "trending" almost ultimately trended for the year 2015? I mean it's one overplayed hit after another, a viral music video every quarter, memes shared thousands of times, famous theme songs and soundtracks dethroned after every much awaited movie and TV releases. 2015 is definitely a year of trending music here and there. This, I suspect, is the culprit for my ever changing LSS or last song syndrome.

See I prefer to listen to the radio on my way to work than my own playlist, just so I can be updated with mainstream music. And for someone who is working for a TV network, man I cannot escape the hits played on almost every variety show both of ABS-CBN and GMA! Already have a guess? Let's see if you got it right ;)

WARNER MUSIC PH YEAR END BLOGCON 2015

When a big music giant sent me an invite for dinner at Lola Cafe - few blocks away from my office - with Coldplay listening party included in the event, there is no way I would say no. It's Warner Music Philippines' year end blogcon and it is also my first time to finally meet Ms. Donna Aquino, Warner's online promotion executive.

WHAT: KAMIKAZEE'S "HULING SAYAW" PRESSCON IS EXACTLY WHY YOU'LL MISS THEM

KAMIKAZEE'S "HULING SAYAW" PRESSCON IS EXACTLY WHY YOU'LL MISS THEM

It was early this year when OPM band Kamikazee announced their decision to disband after a loud and insane 15 years in the music scene as a group. Despite the viral disbandment news, the band cleared out that it's more of an indefinite hiatus. Hmm, either way it's still saddening, more so after being with them for their final show concert presscon.

KAMIKAZEE “HUMBLED” BY FAN REACTION TO ‘HULING SAYAW’

Filipino Rock Legends Set To Fill Araneta Coliseum For Farewell Show! 

Kamikazee have admitted to being “humbled” by fan reaction after thousands snapped up tickets for their farewell show at the SMART Araneta Coliseum on December 10, 2015 8PM.

The 15,000-capacity venue looks set to be a sell-out with legions of Kamikazee fans having already made sure of their places at what is set to be the gig of the year. Over 1,000 tickets were sold in just minutes after they went on sale, while the standing section and several seated areas have already sold out.

WHAT: WILDERNESS RELEASES MV OF MODERN KUNDIMAN "PASAWAY"

WILDERNESS PASAWAY

WILDERNESS RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO OF MODERN KUNDIMAN "PASAWAY"

Wilderness, most known for their robust performances of psychedelic rock numbers, releases music video for Modern-Kundiman song “Pasaway”. The two-day shoot was located in Director Lumbera’s hometown where the members embarked on an expedition through the thick woods and sprawling rivers of Balete, Batangas. It was directed by Gym Lumbera and, hello HS sophomore classmate, Malay Javier!

I never thought a place in Batangas can haunt me, at least on screen. And by haunt I meant not the spirit kind, but the unexplainable feelings that recur to your familiarity, much to its video and calming story telling. Kung hugot at hugot lang, walang sinabe ang lyrics ng mga bagong banda! Wait till the end of the video and read the lyrics, saksak!

WHO: ELY BUENDIA / WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO SHOOT THE EHEADS FRONT MAN

ELY BUENDIA / WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO SHOOT THE EHEADS FRONT MAN

This is probably the third time I will have a post published with photos of Ely Buendia in it, with Sony's very first silent concert in the country being my closest encounter with him. How I wish I can consider this photoshoot as the nearest I could ever be with him though, but the lucky stars are over photographer Adrian Gonzales so I'll just have to envy him for as long as I consider Buendia as the hottest OPM vocalist, next to Gab Alipe (waaah).

How does it feels like then to shoot the rock legend frontman of Eraserheads? Adrian recounts the opportunity:

On its sophomore year in the country, Red Bull Thre3style pitted six of the Philippines’ hottest DJs at the National Finals held last June 27 at the metro’s biggest club, Valkyrie.


At the epic night’s end, defending champion DJ Carlo Atendido bested fellow finalists in DJ-ing skills, technical wizardry, and the ability to keep the crowd moving for a second shot at representing the country at the World Championships to be held in Tokyo, Japan later this year. DJ Nikita del Rosario, also a national finalist from the Thre3style 2014 run, and DJ Miguel (de Borja), the youngest of the night’s participants, placed first and second runners-up respectively.

Quite glad to be handpicked as one of the media partners for this year's Electronic MusiCon aka EMEX 2015 held at SMX Convention Center. It was a Friday - Sunday event but unfortunately I got to only attend its third day for work related reasons. The last day didn't disappoint though, I still got to enjoy the second floor's hallways of exhibitors featuring the latest on music technology, DJs and producers back and forth, and seminars for passionate musicians like you!
