SIGN UP

Who’s Jamming?

ABRA

A Filipino hip hop artist and occasional actor. He gained popularity in his song “Gayuma”. The music video for the song shows Abra being given a potion only to realize that his love interest is in fact transgender. When the video reached more than 26 million views on YouTube, it was hailed as the highest number generated by any local artist.

AUTOTELIC

A Filipino indie-alternative rock band in Manila, Philippines. Formed in 2012, currently signed with independent record label Nemesis Music Group, and major record label MCA Music.

THE BRAT PACK

The Brat Pack is a Filipino Blues/Rock N’ Roll/ Jazz group based out of Manila, Philippines. They made history becoming the first Asian band to make it to the finals of the world’s most prestigious blues competition called the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, TN, USA, finishing between 4th and 8th, 2 years in a row. The band, being rather unorthodoxly keyboard driven unlike most blues bands who are lead by guitar, performs with high energy with variations of solo instrumental show stoppers to heart warming vocal blending.

BROWNMAN REVIVAL

A Filipino reggae band founded in November 1994. They count Bob Marley, Big Mountain, Aswad, Inner Circle, and UB40 among their musical influences as well as Filipino reggae group Tropical Depression and OPM acts such as Eraserheads, APO Hiking Society, and VST & Company. One author describes Brownman Revival’s music as “reggae-inspired beats with traditional folk pop rhythms and the basest of lyrical themes”.

CHICOSCI

An alternative rock band based in Manila, Philippines. The band was formed in 2000. They have enjoyed continued success in the music industry, having been able to release six major albums and garner several music awards.

GLOC-9

GRACENOTE

KITCHIE NADAL

A Filipino singer-songwriter from Manila, Philippines, formerly the lead vocalist for the alternative rock band, Mojofly. Kitchie’s popularity in the female OPM niche grew after she released a self-titled solo album featuring her chart-topping single, Huwag na Huwag Mong Sasabihin.

LOU BONNEVIE

A Filipina pop rock musician. She has released several albums since the beginning of her career in 1984. Her music was also used in the AD Police OVA series in Japan.

MAYONNAISE

A five-piece Filipino alternative rock band. The band is fronted by Monty Macalino. The band is famous for winning the prestigious Red Horse Muziklaban in 2004.

NINA

A Filipina singer, occasional songwriter, record producer, TV and radio personality. She made her recording debut in 2002 after signing a recording contract with Warner Music Philippines.

NOEL CABANGON

A Filipino folk singer and composer, formerly of the band Buklod. He is known for composing socially-relevant songs such as Kanlungan and Tatsulok.

PHILIA

Fronted by the alluring femme fatale Arci “Mona” Muñoz, this is definitely not your average “female-pop-radio-friendly-outfit” many music fans have come to expect from years of the local scene being riddled with marketing ploys of record company execs cashing-in on a particular personality and her celebrity status. Hell no. In fact, Philia – the band – almost a decade in existence, has been continuing to evolve as a unit that is hell-bent on challenging, if not obliterating the norm and the stereotypes that come with it.

ROUGE

A Pop Rock Band composed of all young, talented, fresh Filipina Beauties -KARA, PRINCESS, JERI & GYAN. They represent “GIRL POWER!” ROUGE is a group of young ladies who embody the beauty, brain, and the heart of being a musician.

SLAPSHOCK

Slapshock is the thunderous sound of Filipino rock/metal. Composed of four diversely skilled musicians, the band was forged in the musically rich landscape of the University in the Philippines in 1997. Slapshock emerged during the heyday of rap-metal in the USA and in the Philippines, becoming a pioneer of the movement and being responsible for its rise. While some would be in danger of being pegged in one genre, the band has stayed put in Pinoy rock’s consciousness for almost two decades because of their evolving but always explosive sound. Slapshock draws you in with a concord of unforgettable and haunting sounds, only to have your senses assaulted with ragged and raw power.

MOONSTAR88

Founded in 1999. Known for their hit single Torete.
