The brave may never live forever

but they're free..  - C-LO

hola miscellitos y miscellitas!

been bumping Audible's Undivided Attention during and since my commute today and i caught myself doing the crazy face.. you know the one wherein you scrounge up your face and try to break your fucking neck from feeling the beat too much?

kind of like this:

yehehe boyeee! good tunes indeed!

aaaanyway, i got some time to share some things so i will.... summer's kicked in here.. mainit.. malagkit...and everybody's sporting the bright colors of summer.. that got me thinking.. of  how fashionably overlooked the mighty misc is! a damn shame because we, are like, you know, very fashionista and all! gosh talaga!


and so i have taken upon myself  to rectify this travesty by sporting the ultimate summer hip-hop get-up.


its a hoodie and a thong all in one. perfect for all hip-hop seasons. rain or shine! swak na swak!

jokes aside. July is almost done for. im sure we'll get some updates on the album status soon.

great googly moogly i dont think i can be more excited! i need something to tide me over.

and this guy/song does the trick every time..

big ups to whoever can name what song dj premier sampled this masterpiece.

paalam friends!

SOULFIESTA x LOONIE "The Ones Who Never Made It"


Taken from soulfiesta.blogspot.com --
Loonie's album is packed with thought, momentum, story, depth and relevance all punctuated with rhymes and delivery you have never heard before in ANY OPM HIPHOP ACT. The INTRO alone sets up the two sided thought process behind the album title. Songs like The Bobo Song, Quinta, Walang Babala are easy favorites. The guests artists and MC's in this album where well picked. Hi C, Dice, Konflick, Tuff, Gloc 9, Rhyxodus, God's Will, Mike Kosa, JSkeelz, Toney Chrome, Nimbusnine, Mikkeraphone, Ron Henley and Klumcee trade bars with Loonie throughout the album in a careful balance of brilliance and integrity. Soundscapes provided by monster producers The Beatmonx - doing most of the beats; CH and Jaytek. It won't be a Loonie album if it didn't stir up jokes and controversy. From calling out other local MC's on songs to an MC Battle skit to that recorded phone call from an irate woman.

Download the album for free, also included are lyrics, and a bonus track featuring the late great Francis Magalona (produced by Chrizo), and a letter to the fans:


Don't sleep on this one. For real.

Love their name. Digging the video.
Didn't even know this guy (Fonzworth Bentley?)came out with an album.
But hey, Andre 3000 always puts a stamp of fresh on anything.

Speaking of which, MISC has always talked amongst ourselves to bust out Temptation-like moves during a set. We always get through the conceptualization and planning stages...but execution always ends up in laughter.

Don't Turn The Lights On

So here we are. Middle of the week and blindsided by another typhoon.
It's been frantic out there what with the wind, rain, and rush
...not to mention massive brownouts everywhere.

But you know what? Maybe sometimes it's better to just wait it out
and appreciate both silence and shadows.

Don't turn the lights on. Coz tonight, I want to see you in the dark.
Take it away Chromeo...

Don't Turn the Lights On by Chromeo

Hope this day ends on a "brighter" note for you guys.
Much love.

Last night I bumped into my homeboy Julo, proprietor of Commune and a usual suspect at Play Tuesdays, and I was humbled by how he reached out and offered support and brotherhood to MISC in helping spread the music and keeping it all united.

Commune is a group of people i personally admire in taste and character, and in how they have built their movement underground while keeping it raw and definitely real. Props to the inspiring hustle of these young cats!

So in returning the good chakra...


Commune MNL was birthed in order to continue building a community for those who creatively share their love for the independent lifestyle/culture, whether it be in fashion, music and art.

Commune MNL is inspired by those who have worked from the ground up -- always believing, aspiring, grinding and hustling to become the best they can be.

Commune MNL supports the rise of independent brands here in the Philippines while honoring the international pioneers of the streetwear industry.

tune in: Summer NAMM 2010

This year's Summer NAMM was a little bit disappointing - there didn't seem to be any jaw dropping gear.  Here's some of the new gear that was showcased:


Safe trip to DJ Umph + album updates

Today we bid a safe trip to Kev (DJ Umph), as he departs for the good ol' U-S-of-A.  We hope he has a blast out there reuniting with family and old friends.  And of course, I hope your fingers get dusty digging. 

His departure meant that we had to pull some crunch time in the studio to arrange and track out the last of the instrumentals for the album.  All arrangements and sequencing are finally done.  Now, it's all about mixing and mastering, and some last minute vocal tweaks.  

Oh, and how can I forget the cuts by D'tech.

So that's 16 tracks in, time to cut things down.

With that said, we're going to miss kickin' it at Kev's studio, which has served as the main venue for our drunken stupors and creative collisions.  One month is a long time, but when he comes back, it will be just in time for our album launch.

The LP is officially, "Almost Done". 

Safe journey to you all wherever you may be going, whether its real or imagined.  

Stay tuned.


Beats on an iPad, and an iPhone guitar.

Alo alo....

Sorry I wasn't able to post up yesterday with all the errands that I finally got to do given we had a nice mid-week break...although i would have wished that the holiday were today as we all need a good day's rest and recuperation from DTech's party @ B-side last night *gags at the memory of alcohol*

So let me just share some cool finds on music-making...

Korg’s iElectribe for iPad. This app gears up an iPad with a four-part percussion synthesizer, 16-step sequencer, 64 preset patterns, and more goodies that will satisfy up any beatsmith's sweet tooth.

Oh No (Stones Throw) uses up to three iPads at a time to create beats. Here’s what he had to say about the process:

This next one looks pretty cool and fun...in theory, photo and description. Though i don't really see why we need this or if it will have any real good use...save for a short entertainment fix (or maybe for innovative bands who want to experiment):


The Fingerist allows you to covert your Iphone/Ipod Touch into a fully functional guitar. It is even made with a line output so you can plug into an amp. (www.individualsole.com)
