GLOC 9 celebrates its 24 years in the music industry

Success is fickle minded.


         


We have seen many one hit wonders rise and fall out of the limelight since they can only do, well, only one hit. But to continually attain success is a sign of dedication and love for the craft. Such is what Aristotle Pollisco aka Gloc-9 has been doing the past 24 years as he established his niche as a major influencer in the Philippine hip hop scene.

Twenty-four years---WOW!

Gloc-9 rose from the ranks of hip hop wannabes in 1997 setting his roots from doing collaborations with other hip hop artists and doing underground album releases. It is no secret as to how hard he struggled and how much he sacrificed to claw his way out of anonymity---but as they say, "You can't put a good man down." His remarkable climb to being one of the pillars of Philippine hip hop only proves the fact that hard work, dedication, and love of what you're doing can lead to success. A story that reverberates as an inspiration to young aspiring artists.

With a career spanning almost a quarter of a century, Gloc-9 is more into making sure that the hip hop industry continue on into the next generation by opening the flood gates of opportunity to the many talented Filipino rappers using his social media clout as a platform for collaborations.

His recent "44 Challenge" generated thousands of responders that showcased how much talented Pinoy rappers are just hiding at the seams waiting for their chance to take center stage.

Gloc-9 is now paying it forward. He was that talented youngster waiting for his chance when a Man from Manila took notice and welcomed him into his house, gave him the needed push and guidance to succeed in the cutthroat world of showbusiness. In like manner, Gloc-9 goes out of his way to help young talents, inspiring them to love their craft, and sharing the stage with them to showcase their talent.

Gloc-9 has nothing more to prove as an artist. His awards cabinet is already filled to the brim. Just recently, he was one of the recipient of the prestigious SUDI National Music Award bestowed by the National Commission for the Culture and the Arts. Another affirmation of his impact in the industry he loves so much.

He is Aristotle Pollisco, Gloc-9, rapper, songwriter, the blacksmith of words, a true Filipino poet, an icon.

Congratulations and looking forward to many more productive years ahead!

Shades of Native Signs with Independent Label Hyphen

Shades of Native, the 5-piece indie folk rock feel-good band has signed with independent label Hyphen. 

You’ll feel right at home with this cozy-yet-passionate group of beautiful souls—with its roots in Bukidnon, a heart for empowering the underrepresented, and an advocacy for unity in diversity.




Nana, the band’s lead female vocalist and acoustic guitarist, expresses her excitement for what’s to come. “Even though we're physically apart, I'm incredibly excited to be working with a team that's dedicated in bringing our vision to life. They really pushed for our voice to be heard, especially because now more than ever, more voices from Bukidnon need to be heard, and despite all the challenges we're facing right now, we couldn't be more grateful for the team we
have.”

Hyphen is an independent consultancy and label by indie artists, for indie artists. Headed by 20-year industry veteran Mike Constantino, Hyphen seeks to empower independent music artists and bands by taking care of their back-end work, including administrative, technical, accounting, and legal work. According to them, they administrate so artists can create.

“When we launched Hyphen last year, it was important to us to sign an artist that we all truly believed in. After discovering their artistry in Sonik and meeting the wonderful members of the band, it was clear that Shades of Native would be our first signing.” says Mike Constantino. 

“We share the vision of releasing great music out to the world and that contemporary Filipino music has many different shades that need to be heard. We have been working hard amidst the pandemic for you to listen to something that will take your breath away, we cannot wait for you to
experience them.”

The band plans to release their first single entitled “Bamboo” on digital streaming platforms this September 2021.

JUNGSU drops new single Breakdown

After a year he released Gotta Bring It Back in September 2020, up-and-coming KHiphop and K-R&B artist JUNGSU dropped his much anticipated new single “Breakdown” last August 13.



This is his first single of 2021 after a full year of break. After graduating UCLA in 2020, he's seen big life changes such as moving back to his home country, South Korea. As he looks back on his time in the States, especially during sophomore year of college in which he was constantly in a state of mental breakdown due to isolation, loneliness, and helplessness induced by personal problems.


The message embedded in "Breakdown" encourages listeners that although they are definitely not alone in the fight, it's actually okay to "want" to be alone for some time.


During that period of “aloneness” in the state of Breakdown, JUNGSU tore into pieces but was slowly but surely glued back together through the everlasting peace that nothing and no one in this world can provide. The author and defender of that perfect healing, as JUNGSU credits, is Jesus Christ.


Stream “Breakdown” on Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streaming platforms. Check out his official website for more details.

ANNE MARIE drops official video for brand new single, KISS MY (UH OH) with LITTLE MIX

Anne-Marie, who releases her highly anticipated new album Therapy today, has dropped the official music video for her brand new single ‘Kiss My (Uh Oh)’ with Little Mix.




Inspired by the girls’ joint love of the movie, Bridesmaids, the official video for ‘Kiss My (Uh Oh)’ - directed by Hannah Lux Davis - sees Anne-Marie in character as a bride-to-be who embarks on her hen-do overseas alongside her bridesmaids that include Little Mix’s Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade. Brimming with laughter and chaos, the video trails the group of friends living life to the full, albeit without the pregnant Perrie and Leigh-Anne, who retire for the night before the real evening of partying begins for Anne-Marie, Jade and the rest of the crew.

A long-awaited collaboration that’s generated huge excitement amongst both Anne-Marie and Little Mix fanbases, ‘Kiss My (Uh Oh)’ has all the ingredients to become the break-up anthem of summer ’21. Sampling Lumidee’s early 00’s R&B classic ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oh)’, the slick production and all-out, empowering track documents the liberating feeling that comes with walking away from a toxic relationship - a narrative that has seen protagonist Anne-Marie earn huge success following the releases of ‘Ciao Adios’, ‘FRIENDS’ and ‘Alarm’. Anne-Marie co-wrote the track with Kamille (Little Mix, Headie One) and production comes from Lewis Thompson (David Guetta, Joel Corry) alongside Mojam (Summer Walker, Aitch).

An artist whose everywoman candour and knock-you-down vocal range has reverberated across the globe, Anne-Marie’s new album Therapy is a collection of twelve songs that embody her characterful artistry, self-effacing attitude and beautiful honesty; attributes that have not only catapulted the Essex-born star to platinum status in the UK to the USA and everywhere in-between, but ones that have seen her reign supreme as a fearless Gen Z role model.

The pop juggernaut wrote the new album with Max Martin (Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift), Kamille, MNEK, Raye, TMS, Blake Slatkin (The Kid Laroi, 24kGoldn), Ed Sheeran, Nathan Dawe and Plested (Lewis Capaldi) – production comes from Mojam (Aitch, Fredo), Fred Ball (Rihanna), TMS and Blake Slatkin.
