     Two of the hottest OPM acts, IV of Spades and Ben & Ben are recently featured on the YouTube series, “Kids Takeover”. First of the two-part program is ‘One on One’ which as its title would suggest, shows kids throwing all questions they want under the sun and reacting to most of the bands’ answers:     Kid: “Ilang taon na po kayo?”   Blaster: “Ako, eighteen.”   Kid: “Ikaw?” (pointing to Badjao)   Badjao: “Twenty-three.”     If you didn’t laugh at this then we don’t know what would make you. If you’re the kind who just loves the music of these bands, then you wouldn’t miss the second part which is the actual kids’ ‘takeover’ of the hits, ‘Mundo’ by IV of Spades and Ben & Ben’s ‘Kathang Isip’. The former, a ukulele spin off which also features the three-piece band turning into a six-piece one has been released on the second week of the series while the latter is yet to come out this Friday, August 24th.   Meanwhile, the same channel behind ‘Kids Takeover’ also gave fans of YouTube cover darling, Ysabelle Cuevas, the chance to get their fan request granted at #DearWMPh. The request was for Ysabelle to cook Bibimbap in a way that’s “kasing sarap ng mga covers na ginagawa mo,” quoting the fan message that refers to the singer’s love for all things Korean and her heavily-viewed song covers. Request leveled up when there were just ingredients but no recipe. Can Dua Lipa grant our fan requests too? Hope yes! View the step-by-step fan request sending here. Doesn’t hurt to try, eh?      What do you think of all the series and who do you want to get featured next? Let us know below! If you haven’t watched any of these episodes yet, you can check them out on the official YouTube channel of Warner Music Philippines: https://wmp.lnk.to/youtube.

    The much-awaited Manila performance of Tower Of Power is finally happening September 7, 2018 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum to be mounted by Ovation Productions. The triple bill event also features Dennis Lambert and Kalapana.   Tower's musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen "Doc" Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio's house, Emilio's father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: "Hire that guy, he's got something." This was how Doc and his signature baritone sax came to be a major part of the band’s sound, and on August 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as we know them today, began playing gigs, and soon became very well known in the area.   Many other bands came out of the San Francisco Bay area in the late 60's. Bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Journey, and others all helped to define the "San Francisco Sound." Tower of Power has always claimed Oakland, California as their hometown, playing area venues and making a name for themselves.   Tower of Power was signed to Bill Graham’s San Francisco records and their first album was East Bay Grease. All of the compositions were original tunes written by Castillo and Kupka. Their next album, Bump City, led to a string of hits and memorable albums that include many of the songs that TOP fans come out in force to hear, even to this day. Over the years, the Tower of Power Horns have recorded with hundreds of artists as diverse as Aerosmith, Elton John, Little Feat, Phish, Santana, Heart, and many others, forever infusing the radio airwaves with Tower’s musical DNA.   Since the beginning, Tower of Power has never stopped touring and recording. Always in demand, the band never fails to entertain and amaze their fans. Tower is truly blessed to have a dedicated following that often travels to see the band, and in many cases fans will plan their vacation or work schedule around an appearance of TOP. New generations of fans come to see them perform as their timeless music continues to excite fans of all ages.     DENNIS LAMBERT   Another featured performer in this September 7, 2018 Smart Araneta Coliseum event is songwriter-producer and singer Dennis Lambert. Dennis’ album Bags and Things was very popular in the Philippines in the early 1970s and contained hit songs Of All the Things, Ashes to Ashes, Somebody Found Her Before I Lost Her, and So Little Time. He also either co-wrote and/or produced huge 1970s hits for other singers like Ain't No Woman Like the One I've Got for the Four Tops, Rhinestone Cowboy for Glen Campbell, Hard Core Poetry and She’s Gone for Tavares, Baby Come Back for Player, Love Music for Sergio Mendes & Brazil ’77, Dream On and Rock and Roll Heaven for The Righteous Brothers which revived the duo's recording career in 1974. In the 1980s, Lambert continued to write and produce alone under his Tuneworks banner. Credits include hits Nightshift for The Commodores, We Built This City and Sara for Starship, I Live For Your Love and Pink Cadillac for Natalie Cole, and Moment Of Truth for Survivor. Lambert was the subject of an award-winning feature-length documentary film, Of All the Things, directed by his screenwriter son Jody Lambert, which followed him on a cross-country tour of the Philippines promoted by Ovation Productions.     KALAPANA   As for Kalapana, they emerged as one of the most popular bands on the Hawaiian music scene in the 70s, and is much loved by Filipinos for their songs, Nightbird, The Hurt, You Make it Hard, and When the Morning Comes. They still enjoy frequent airplay in Manila’s top radio stations until today. Kalapana received the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. Ovation Productions took them on a Philippine Tour back to back with the band America in 2012.   It will truly be a thrill for Filipino music lovers to see all three of their favorite artists perform together in one evening of retro music at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It certainly cannot get any better than this!                 Tower of Power 50th Anniversary Tour featuring Dennis Lambert and Kalapana is produced by Ovation Productions.

        Just seven months after its release on Spotify and five months on YouTube, Shanti Dope’s certified hit song ‘Nadarang’ has hit over twenty million views and streams on the respective platforms. This is a phenomenal feat for the 17-year old new generation rapper-songwriter who celebrates a number of achievements to this date.   For one, Shanti is about to celebrate one year with Universal Records in August – after being discovered by his uncle DJ Klumcee (who also acts as his producer and co-manager) and endorsed by OPM Rap Icon Gloc-9 to the label, Shanti has already released two EPs. He worked on his self-titled EP (which includes the hit song ‘MAU’) even before signing with the label, while his second EP Materyal already has a number of hits including ‘Nadarang’ and ‘Shantidope’ which features Gloc-9, who he now considers one of his mentors in the business.   With a fresh take on Pinoy rap, Shanti has garnered praise not only from the underground rap scene from which he takes root in, but also on the mainstream and commercial side, as he crossed over to major radio airplay, guestings on the biggest shows on TV, and live performances alike. This may be a tough act to balance at such a young age, especially since Shanti still attends high school on a regular basic, but he is nothing but grateful for the opportunities he has received in the past few months.   Talking about his sudden breakout success, Shanti says “Natutuwa po ako na naipapamahagi ko ang mga isinulat ko sa mga tao, at nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng patuloy na sumusuporta sa akin at sa rap scene. Sana po’y maipagpatuloy ko ang aking mga nasimulan, at abangan niyo na lang po ang mga next projects ko.”   ' Among the many projects in store for Shanti is an upcoming single, a concert to launch a new album, as well an international collaboration with Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Mimi. Shanti, together with Gloc-9, will also be a special guest in the Ultimate hiphop OG Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert on September 5, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena.   With all these up his sleeve, the future looks burning bright for this young wunderkind rapper.   Shanti Dope and Materyal EPs are now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon under Universal Records.   Tickets for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert are out now via SM Tickets | bit.ly/BTNH2018MNL It’s gonna be an epic hiphop party with #BTNHManila ft.
