Vote for the Warriors.

Yo we need your votes!

Big up to our sistah and Singapore-Canada female artist Masia One. Her sick video "Warriors Tongue" is nominated for a VIMA Sountheast Asian Indie Music Award. Her new album, Bootleg Culture, is also nominated in several other categories. Homegirl just keeps making moves and keeping the music massive!

Warriors Tongue has an extended connection to the Philippines as it was originally shot in Tondo, Manila with additional footages coming from different parts of the archipelago, all locally done by the 22 Deep crew (Umph and D'Tech representin!)

I feel especially excited because I love the Philippines!  This video celebrates the colours and beauty of Tondo in Manila and I truly hope I return to the PHIL sometime soon! - Masia

KOTD: Step Easy (CANADA) vs Anygma (PHILIPPINES)

Canada vs Philippines at World Domination 3. King Of The Dot Entertainment video of Step Easy vs Anygma from the battles held in Canada. Anygma came with it and he should have taken this one just by sheer lyricism alone. But hey, both MCs had their highlights and respect goes out to Step for taking the W. Good to see the Philippine battle scene being repped proper! Big ups to our boy!

The Pharmer's Guide To Higher Ground (free download)

The Pharmer’s Guide to Higher Ground is a hip-hop project conceptualized by MC’s Liquid, Skarm, Flexx and Lloyd. In this age where visual illustrations and juxtaposed figures of speech maintain a certain vital role in crafting modern underground hip-hop music, the Pharm introduce themselves as such group utilizing these elements. The 14-track album is a sketchpad of lyrical approaches stylized by each member’s own characteristics in spitting out mind-trip bars that reveal their own animated worlds, cryptic messages and bizarre thoughts. Backed up by hazardous headnod beats from 3 of the Pharm’s members (along with production from producers, Ill Primitivo and DJ Fresh-Lee) and surreal album art designed by abstract visual artist Sloj, this album promises a rejuvenating feeling in Philippine underground hip-hop; simply put, it is something fresh and relevant to look forward to.

Inside the Philippine hiphop DJ scene

An interesting read via filamfunk that takes you through the cracks and crevices of the current 
hiphop DJ scene in Manila. Check the excerpts and click through to read the FULL ARTICLE. Photobucket

Certainly, the music has changed since the 1990s, but how much control do DJs have in shaping the reception of new music, especially when much of the music being produced by Philippine artists are not even getting much love by Filipinos? If "open-format" cannot accommodate hip hop (at least at this point), even more does it fail to promote original Pilipino hip hop. 

Philippine DJs are in a constant struggle to be a part of this changing musical soundscape, which does not always sound the way they'd like. But they spin anyway. And as fans first, their profession is rooted in a passion for hip hop. 


Spotted at the WIP Caps HQ...

Watch out for these. Too fresh not to have on your dome.
