    Tanya Markova’s imaginative minds just gave us a jumpstart on our week by releasing the music video on their latest single, ‘Stranded’ last July 14.     Featured on the video is Paolo Contis, who really gave comedic justice to his character. He might seem crazy for doing so (marrying yourself? Giving yourself a honeymoon? Then divorcing yourself?), but admit it… He did it so well. According to the article published by Tower of Doom, Tanya Markova, together with director Julius Tan, agreed that Paolo Contis could perfectly portray such role and things just went into place when he found the concept funny and actually played the part.     Watch the quirky music video here:     ‘Stranded’ is available on Spotify, Deezer, and Apple Music.

    Before the week ended, singer-songwriter Jensen Gomez dropped not just one, but two music videos for his two latest singles.    Last July 12, he released some artistic and complementary visuals for ‘Hangin’ and ‘Init’. Both directed by Emerson Reyes, they succeeded in giving us the feels of what each title suggests: the music video for ’Hangin’ radiated a very quiet and chill vibe (probably because of the obvious presence of nature), and also Jensen wearing thick, layered winter clothing suggests the atmospherical situation of the video.     For ‘Init’, well, as the title suggests, its music video has the subtle feeling of warmness in it despite the many visuals of fire.      Don’t miss out on the music videos! Watch it here:         ‘Hangin’ and ‘Init’ are also available on all streaming platforms.

    Get ready to be serenaded as a new acoustic duo project arise— with Join the Club’s very own Biboy Renia and singer-songwriter Jana Garcia teaming up as John in Mars.     Over the weekend, the duo released their soothing cover of the timeless classic, “Bato sa Buhangin” which was originally performed by Cinderella and it surely gave us the relaxing vibe we deserved to end a stressful week. Their vocal combination has an easy-listening feel to it, giving justice to the vintage vibe their accompanying visuals (as directed by Migs Mendoza) are serving.   John in Mars’s musical influences range from “the classics - Everly Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel, and Brian Wilson, intensified with Jana’s fine taste from the artistry of Corinne Bailey Rae, Portishead and Natalie Prass.” (John in Mars Facebook page)   Their rendition of “Bato sa Buhangin” is that one cozy track you wouldn’t want to miss.      Might as well check them out on their social media accounts!   FB: John in Mars Twitter: @johninmars IG: @johninmars

    The Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) in partnership with the provincial government of Bataan, gears up for the national celebration of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDADAIT) on June 22, in Balanga City, Bataan.   With the theme “Katarungan para sa Kalusugan, Kalusugan para sa Katarungan,” the DDB and the provincial government of Bataan enlist the participation of youth and young professionals, including barangay anti-drug abuse councils, Non-Government Organizations and other government agencies in cultivating a healthy and drug-free lifestyle.     A neon run kicks off this year’s IDADAIT observance, followed by Rakrakan Against Drugs, a free anti-drug concert as the celebration’s main attraction. The concert features OPM bands in the likes of Mayonnaise, Slapshock, Maryzark, and Hollydaze, with Jesse and Christian Perkins as the concert’s front act. The IDADAIT committee in Bataan facilitates the ongoing pre-registration for the neon run at Vista Mall, Balanga, Bataan. The race bib also serves as an individual’s pass to the concert grounds.   Meanwhile, the DDB also encourages the participation of partner agencies and local government units across the country to mobilize anti-drug advocates in the observance of IDADAIT.   IDADAIT is an annual event observed simultaneously every 26th of June by UN-Member Countries as an expression of its determination to strengthen action and cooperation to achieve the goal of an international society free of illegal drugs and drugs abuse.

     With years of hardwork and countless of hits under his belt, the name Gloc-9 has become synonymous to Rap Icon in the OPM Industry. This 2019, Gloc-9 returns with "TULAy" a new EP that brings new music from the rapper and pushes the OPM scene even further. As its name suggests, Gloc-9 brings two concepts together in "TULAy" — it is a play on the tagalog words "tula" (poem) and "tulay" (bridge), both terms signifying what the rapper wants to embody in this EP. For one, hip-hop is at the forefront as Gloc showcases his skills in writing hard-hitting and socially relevant verses, also experimenting with new styles and flows. But it does not stop there — while the beloved rap icon pushes his music forward, he also uses the EP as a platform to introduce youngblood to the OPM scene.   All five tracks bring forth a collaboration between Gloc-9 and one or more emerging OPM artists. Tracks featured include "Maleta", the first collab between him and singer-songwriter Julie Anne San Jose, "Lagi" featuring rising OPM act Al James, "Pamaypay" with Tawag ng Tanghalan-alum and R&B singer JKris, and "Sino" featuring Abaddon and Smugglaz. Rounding up the EP is "Totoo" featuring Zjay and Lirah Bermudez. With his passion for writing and creating relevant hits, and his dedication to bring the OPM scene to the forefront, it's no wonder that Gloc-9 continues to stay on top of his game.  TULAy EP is now available for streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, and Amazon Music under Universal Records.

    Written by Gab Gallardo “Sa ngalan ng ama, at ng anak at ng espirito ng alak.”June 9, 2019, Cavite based Rock band, Fherrond released their music video for their song, “Leviticus”.“Leviticus” was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Earbender Recording Studio.Acclaimed director, Sigfreid Barros Sanchez, delivered a spot-on vision for the song, providing a gritty and neo-noir feel, almost as an homage to David Fincher’s “Fight Club”. His use of colorized lighting and shaky handheld camera movements, supplementing the song’s crippling intensity and anguish was a thing of beauty to watch and experience, especially when it’s starred by one of the country’s most talented and badass characters, Baron Geisler.The official music video was produced by The Pitchblack Studios. It was then edited by Micah Redito and Szackobe Kabro Z. Sanchez, camera works by Szackobe Kabro Z. Sanchez as well, alongside Joey Kimura, Zion Fos, Herbert Ikan, and Chester Malamug.

    After a month of charting in the upper reaches of the Spotify Philippines' Viral 50, Filipino alt-rock outfit the vowels they orbit has finally reached the second spot of the streaming chart through their latest song "Selos." The irresistible earworm vaults from #4 to #2 on its fifth week in the countdown. Taken into account its viral appeal, the vowels they orbit's debut single joins the company of Lil Nas and Billy Cyrus' "Old Town Road" and Allmo$t's "Dalagang Pilipina" as one of the most popular songs in the country, as per Spotify Philippines' latest tracking.     Unassuming Earnestness   "Selos" started gaining traction after the band performed the song at iWant ASAP Highlights this month. With its relatable lyrics, melodic pop appeal and lighthearted jazzy chords, it's easy to see why the band continues to shred listeners' hearts into pieces without resorting to overwrought sentimentality. Produced by Rye Sarmiento and composed by Darwin Hernandez, the vowels they orbit's maiden release was recorded at the Backyard Studio. The song talks about "one-sided jealousy," putting into light a normal situation that one goes through in a romantic relationship.     What's Next For The Vowels They Orbit?   Now signed to Sony Music Philippines, the vowels they orbit are set to release an EP soon. The band, composed of Nikka Melchor (Vocals), Jeremy Sayas (Drums), Hannah Dela Cruz (Keyboard), Gene Santiago (Guitars) and Patch Javier (Bass), is currently being managed by Soup Star Entertainment, which takes pride of its star-studded roster such as Sandwich, Pedicab, Moonstar88, 6cyclemind, Hilera, Imago and more.       "Selos" is now available on streaming and download platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes store, and Deezer via Sony Music Philippines.
