Agos and HipHop Hall of Famer Jay Flava drops a heavy track 'Dilim'

Agos is a rock band from the Philippines comprised of Jason Grospe, Rhoy Moring, Donovan Cabayan, John Escaño, Rob Valdez and Star Sabroso. They released their debut album 'Live The Life' on April 9, 2021 under Indie TV Music Distribution. Their singles 'Hunos Dili' and 'Stop Motion' garnered independent and mainstream media mileage such as topping underground radio charts, Myx music video debut, MYXclusive interview, InqPop featured artist, Net 25 Letters and Music guesting, Abante sa Radyo guesting as well as regular airplay at Monster RX 93.1 and Jam 88.3.


Jay Flava is a Filipino HipHop artist who is a member of the rap group Chinese Mafia. He is a 2019 HipHop Hall of Famer, 2018 Gawad Pilipino Awardee for Best Rapper, 1997 Platinum Record Awardee, and a 1995 DM95 Rap Battle Winner.

'Dilim' is a Nu Metal song collaboration of the rock band Agos and hip hop artist Jay Flava of the rap group Chinese Mafia. It contains elements of heavy melodic metal riffs, hard rock vocals and rap metal lyrics mid song. The project was conceptualized by Jason Grospe and Jay Flava mid-pandemic of 2020 and was later recorded in the late 2021 at Nineworkz Productions with co-producer and mixing engineer Jam Bumanlag of the heavy metal band EVEN. The song aims to bring back the glory of the Nu Metal genre as well as catering audiences from the mainstream Heavy Metal, Rap Metal, Nu Metal, Hard Rock, and Hip Hop scene and it is the first metal song recorded by the band.


The lyrics refers to mental health issues, stress related environment and its contributory factors as a result of the pandemic in which no one can deny that most of us has been through that phase. It may be political or any kind of statement for some of the listeners but it would be better if we let the song speak out for itself and we may reflect on what it feels like from what we've gone through before.

Dilim is out this December 17, 2021 on all major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, Tidal, etc. under Archipelago Records.
