6 reasons why you shouldn't miss exhilarating acts in Impossible

When was the last time you watch a magic show? I'd been to David Copperfield's first show here in the country in 1989. 

Last December 25, which fall on Christmas' Day, I witnessed world-class magical act in Impossible which was held at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Comprised of Boundary-Breaking Magician Ben Hart, Explosive Street Magician Magical Bones, Mind-Blowing Mind-Reader Chris Cox, Grand Illusionist Josephine Lee, Master of Magic Ali Cook, and Comic Daredevil Bello Nock, I can't get enough of all the wonderful tricks.
.



Here are 6 reasons why you shouldn't miss exhilarating magical performance:

1. It's different from the typical magic show. You need to watch it from start to finish! I was stunned every single fantastic magical act, most especially Bello Nock's funny antics while doing a daredevil performance with his daughter, Annaliese.





2. You will learn more about different magic tricks that have been known for years. I was struck one of Ben Hart's enchanting, mind-blowing trick before the first half of the show ends. 




3. Chris Cox's outstanding random mind reading he did with the selected audience. I got awe-struck in describing what he did. Speechless!




4. You will surprise that a woman like Josephine Lee who did brilliant illusion stunts on stage. A guy beside me can't believe what she did. 



5. With his dance moves and amazing card tricks, you will impress what Magical Bones when he teared up a peso bill into flames. Totally astonishing magic it is!




6. Ali Cook's breathtaking magic tricks will leave you speechless. 





You have to See To Believe the IMPOSSIBLE!

At 18 years old, Janina Vela’s achievements as a YouTuber and social media personality goes far beyond what is imaginable for a girl her age.


Inline image 1


With various awards and recognition, Janina is now ready to challenge herself with a new path in her career, this time as a musician.“My biggest goal as a musician is to create songs that people can relate to and share parts of my life that I’ve never shared before,” she said.

She wrote her debut single, “Hesitate,” as an anthem for those whose hearts have been broken and crippled by fear of being burned again. “It’s probably been everyone’s story at one point or another.” The single reached Top 5 of Spotify’s Top 50 Viral Chart!

With a following that can only grow from this point on, Janina’s passion remains the same, and that is to be a positive influence to her generation, to inspire them to be confident in their own skin and encourage them to be beautiful inside out.
 “Hesitate” is available now on all digital platforms!


Shanti Dope released Materyal EP; Debut single Nadarang topped Spotify PH's Top 50 Viral Chart



Shanti Dope is a 16-year-old rapper from Manila, who started writing verses in 2013 following the footsteps of local rappers who use songwriting as a way to tell stories. Influenced by the idea of storytelling through rap, his first long verse got him into rapper Smugglaz 2015 album Walking Distance. 2017 marks the year he comes out with his own EP with Universal Records.

Along with Smugglaz, he counts as influences Loonie, Ron Henley, and Gloc-9, whose wordplay, context, rhymes, and narratives he aspires for in his own work. The name Shanti Dope meanwhile is borne of the influence of his father, who was a practitioner of Krishna Consciousness. Shanti is the sanskrit word for “peace,” which, alongside “dope” could mean “Peace is my natural drug.” This call for peace, given songs that actually speak of injustice and inequality, that insists on discussing the state of the nation, is what sets him apart from many rappers his age.

In less than a week after “Materyal” EP release, the carrier single “Nadarang” shot straight to the NUMBER ONE spot on Spotify PH’s Top 50 Viral Chart. Not only that, three other songs from the EP entered the chart as well — Materyal (#10), Shantidope (#15) and Norem (#50).


Shanti Dope's “Materyal” EP is now available on all digital formats.

Katy Perry set to return in Manila for her Witness: The Tour on April 2, 2018


This just in!


In the wake of the North American tour’s stellar reviews and added concerts, Katy Perry announces the Asia leg of WITNESS: The Tour.Produced by AEG Presents and Ovation Productions, Katy Perry will visit Manila on 02 April 2018 at the Mall Of Asia Arena. Besides Manila, WITNESS: The Tour Asia leg also includes Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Bangkok and Jakarta. This announcement follows the addition of a South American leg in March, Mexico, UK and European legs kicking off in May of 2018, and an Australian/New Zealand leg commencing in July of 2018.







Tickets for the 02 April 2018 show go on sale 12 noon of 11 December 2017 via KatyPerry.com. Ticket prices are P19,540/ 16,370/ 13,200/ 6,870/ 2,640. See itinerary via www.smtickets.com.

The North American leg, which began in September, has received rave reviews.



“Eye-popping” – USA Today

“Ms. Perry was as confident and adept onstage as she’s ever been” –The New York Times

“Enormous, colorful sets with eye-popping props, strong vocals that kept her at the front of top-40 live performers, and a presence now more refined than radicalized” – Los Angeles Times

“Fast-paced and fun” – Boston Globe

“Katy Perry’s Witness Tour Looks Are Out of This World” – InStyle

“Colorful, sparkling spectacle” – Billboard

“As concert productions go, Perry’s is the definition of top-notch and an Instagram dream: a highly choreographed, sensory overloaded assault that sparkles, swings, struts, and even flies.” – Variety


With Witness, Katy finds liberation, in the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that inspire both thought and movement. The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, and the singles, “Bon Appétit”featuring Migos and “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness.


WITNESS: the Tour is an imaginative trip from outer-space to inner-space, from the planets to the bottom of our oceans, and a musical journey through Katy Perry’s biggest milestones and mega-hits right up to her latest album. The dramatically original staging means that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, when Katy brings out her band and dancers, along with all the bells and whistles.

WITNESS: The Tour is Katy’s first run since the sold-out, 151-date Prismatic World Tour, which concluded in 2015 and was hailed byRolling Stone as "a show to damage retinas and blow minds." Sponsors include KATY PERRY PARFUMS.

Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter, and the first to surpass 100 million followers.

What happened at GetMusic NURock YEARS concert?



To all music lovers specifically OPM lovers out there. This may be the most awaited local event you’ve all waited for before the year ends. Did you miss hearing Eraserheads again live on stage? Or even sing-along with Rivermaya, Barbie Almalbis, Sugarfree and Itchyworms? MCA music just held a concert together with NU107 the “Get Music NU107 NURock Years”. If you attended the concert just like us, you know the feeling!

ATTENTION to all the Tito’s and Tita’s of Manila! This concert was like a reunion where NU 107 was still streaming on our radio. It’s like teleporting ourselves from 2017 to the 90’s music in one night. The event has the most epic line-up you could imagine!

Opening the night with The Itchyworms.




Yes, we know Jugs Jugueta, the vocalist of The Itchyworms, if you are watching It’s Showtime. Some people shouted “showtime” while they’re performing but that’s from a millennial perspective.  The Itchyworms was already in the industry during 90’s up to the present. They performed some of their old hits like “Beer” and “Akin Ka Na Lang”.




Did you know that The Itchyworms won Best New Artist in 2001 at NU Rock Awards? Yes, they did!

The 2nd artist to performed was Barbie Almalbis.



I always say to myself everytime I saw Barbie was “Ang ganda niya”, “Di siya tumatanda”. I was really close to the edge on asking her what’s her secret. But I don’t have the courage on asking that question to her.


She serenades the audience with her angelic voice and amazing guitar riffs. Wow. If I were a guy, I’ll fall in love with this woman. She really knows how to play that’s why she’s still active on playing shows and gigs everywhere.

Some of the songs she performed were “Money for Food”, “Firewoman” and the soundtrack from Close-Up “Just a Smile”.


Barbie was also nominated in several category at NU Rock Awards like Artist of the year, Best Live Act, Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year (Dahilan), and Album of the Year (Parade). 


The 3rd artist to performed was Rivermaya



Honestly, this was one of the bands I’m looking forward to see. I really enjoyed every time I watched them in gigs and events.  You can really see how professional they are in their craft. Rivermaya defined the true alternative rock music. I’m a 90’s kid so I grew up listening to this band.

The last time I saw them was 2015 and I still clearly remember how nostalgic it was. And it happened again at Get Music NU Rock Years. So much feels when they performed “Kisapmata”.  One of my favorite songs of Rivermaya.






They also performed their latest single “Manila” from their latest album “Sa Kabila ng Lahat”.
Rivermaya won Album of the Year (Free) at NU Rock Awards in 2000.


The 4th artist to perform was Ebe Dancel




He really knows how to entertain people with his “hugot songs”. With a mix of mellow and rock, he definitely knows the right mix of music for people in all generation. He performed some of his old songs like “Tulog Na”, “Burnout” and “Huwag Ka nang Umiyak”. Ebe’s voice was like a lullaby to my ears. He can really sing you to sleep. He was very chill and relaxing to watch.



The last artist to performed was Ely Buendia




The first time I saw the poster of the event and I saw Ely’s name on the line-up, I said to myself that I want to go to this event! Plus, the fact that he will be performing some Eraserheads hits, I unquestionably shouldn’t miss this!


This was the closest encounter I’ve had with Ely. I never get to see E-heads in my whole life nor hear their music live. So, this was a first to me. I was really amazed with how Ely Buendia perform. I can see that he pauses a bit and let the crowd sings the lyrics and he was just strumming his guitar and look at the audience. I still can’t believe that the legend was really in front of me performing these iconic songs live. Everyone’s attention was on Ely Buendia. He was like storytelling and you must listen carefully and never bat an eye.



Ely Buendia’s performance was like a connecting bridge from the 90’s to the recent year era. Ely brought so much memories from the past and laid everything in front of you through his music and Eraserheads. The NU 107 FM days was also part of it. This station was also the reason why there’s still OPM in our generation nowadays despite of foreign acts and Kpop invading and adding to the music taste of the people. 

Hope to have more of this kind of event in the future. This brought people back together.


Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na balikan yung mga musika na bumuo sa pagkatao natin. Nagbabalik ng mga ala-ala ng nakaraan at lahat ng mga ala-ala na ito ay puro magaganda lamang.



Thank You MCA Music and NU 107.

JBJ set to visit Manila for their 1st fan meeting



The PRODUCE 101 fever continues to run hot! Dubbed an “idol group miracle” by both the media and fans alike, JBJ has announced they will be making their first visit ever to Manila on January 14 to spend the New Year with their Filipino fans! JBJ 1st Fan Meeting In Manila “Come True” tickets going on sale November 29th at ticketnet.com.ph .






JBJ was dubbed an “idol group miracle” in Korea, because, even though members Kenta, Longguo, Sanggyun, Taehyun, Donghan, and Hyunbin didn’t make it to the top 20 in Season 2 of PRODUCE 101, they were still able to gather huge support from fans, who decided to create their own “dream group”, purchasing expensive billboard ads at the bustling Samseong Subway Station in Seoul, and posting their wishes on hoping for the members to officially debut.




In the end, JBJ became a dream come true and successfully debuted as a limited 7-month group. Having just released their first mini album, JBJ reached more than 3 million hits within the first week, creating yet another miracle after miracle, proving themselves as the next rising star.




Having only debuted October 18, JBJ is definitely still a k-pop “rookie” and recently said during a radio broadcast that everything is really new to them and that they are really enjoying themselves. Donghan also humbly said he hoped that everyone would be willing to share with him their experience on the rules and tips of appearing on music programs. When chatting about their first music program debut, members said they were really pleasantly surprised when meeting the various idol groups “in person” and that they hoped to one day be able to meet their own idol- BTS.




JBJ 1st Fan Meeting In Manila “Come True” will be held at The Araneta Coliseum on January 14th, 2018. Please refer to the Midas Promotions Facebook page for further details.

Sponge Cola unveiled their new song, Tempura


Sponge Cola is back with an interesting pair of songs to close out 2017. Fresh off their latest hit “Bahaghari," which just recently entered Magic899's Hall of Fame list, the band is set to release “Tempura" and “Kunwari."



According to frontman Yael Yuzon, “Tempura" is "Basically a compilation of text messages from a friend, who was going through some relationship problems at the time." When asked about the title, he says "It is so personal and almost biographical, that the title is almost begging the listener to detach from the song's specifics. But at the same time, invites anyone who could lend an ear." So is it a rant? "I guess it is," Yuzon adds.


Bassist Gosh Dilay penned the bittersweet “Kunwari," that despite being a lighthearted song, deals with something everyone is all too familiar with: unrequited love. Framed by Dilay's trademark Filipino, “Kunwari” emphasizes the push and pull between being eager risk takers, and safe calculated people when it comes to love.

Both “Tempura" and “Kunwari” are available on all digital platforms!

Sponge Cola's new single #Tempura AVAILABLE NOW on iTunes/Apple Music

Incubus set to return in Manila for post Valentines Manila concert on February 17, 2018



The much loved American rock band Incubus, whose return engagement to Manila has been eagerly awaited is performing February 17, 2018Saturday, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The band is known for its rock anthems Wish You Were Here, Megalomaniac, Anna Molly, Drive, Pardon Me, Are You In?, Nice To Know You, among others. The concert is produced by Ovation Productions, the group that also did Incubus’ previous concerts in Manila; the last was in 2015.



Since their formation in 1991, iconic multi-platinum Los Angeles rock band Incubus have consciously and continually shifted their perspective with each subsequent album, preserving the spirit that initially drove them and simultaneously challenging themselves as artists and human beings. Their eighth full-length, the aptly titled 8 [Island Records], proudly upholds that tradition for the quintet—Brandon Boyd [vocals], Mike Einziger [guitar, piano, backing vocals], José Pasillas II [drums], Chris Kilmore [turntables, keyboards], and Ben Kenney [bass].

 “As a band, we’re collectively interested in challenging ourselves and hopefully finding new, innovative ways of writing music,” asserts Boyd. “That ethos has kept things interesting for us.”

In the fall of 2016, the five musicians regrouped to flesh out ideas, recording at Jim Henson Studios and at Einziger’s personal studio. As the vision came into focus during early 2017, Incubus added another level by enlisting the perspective of longtime friend Skrillex [Justin Bieber, A$AP Rocky, Lady Gaga] for co-production and mixing. Einziger had spent the past few years, exponentially expanding his personal musical palette. Not only did he oversee production for The Internet’s Feel Good and produce three songs for Tyler, The Creator’s chart-topping “Cherry Bomb,” but he also co-wrote Avicii’s six-times platinum smash “Wake Me Up” and served as musical director and performer for a much talked-about 2016GRAMMY® Awards performance of “Where Are Ü Now” by Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber. After lunch one day, Einziger played Skrillex some mixes, and “a whole new world opened up” as the producer added his magic to 8.

“It evolved organically out of my friendship with Skrillex,” Einziger elaborates. “Incubus is all about friendship. We transferred the synergy of working together into what the band was doing. As we put the final touches on everything, Skrillex brought another level to the album.”

As a result, the eleven tracks comprising 8 assemble a mosaic reflective of the band’s current mindset. Unease translates to unpredictable guitar riffs that blur the lines between time signatures as cosmic rhythmic transmissions orbit around an epicenter of combustible emotion. Each lyric encodes a parable or what might be a hidden message. The first single “Nimble Bastard” leapfrogs from a rattling guitar snap into an anthemic refrain. “Loneliest” echoes with an existential rumination on solitude over an airy beat and hypnotic guitars. “Undefeated” struts along via a bombastic stomp before culminating on an uplifting chant, while the spacey “Familiar Faces” instantly enchants.

The soothing instrumental soundscape of “Make No Sound In The Digital Forest” illuminates their cinematic side with delicate chimes, simmering drums, and warbling tones. A dial-up modem signals the explosion of “Love In A Time of Surveillance” as the one-two punch of “No Fun” and “Throw Out The Map” tap into a tsunami of distortion and punk-y freedom. “Glitterbomb” represents the glorious push-and-pull of 8, teetering between heavenly harmony and a dramatic twinge.

8 arrives at a significant milestone for Incubus—releasing exactly 20 years since their major label debut S.C.I.E.N.C.E. landed back in 1997. A little older, a lot wiser, quite tighter, but equally ready to challenge themselves and rock music at large, Incubus change their perspective once more in 2017.



 “All the time, I hear from fans that our music was the backdrop of their first experience with love or important in getting them through a hard time,” says Einziger. “That’s the highest compliment.”

“When we finished 8, we were flooded with this wave of gratitude,” Boyd leaves off. “The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling. We’re filled with this sense of awe around it. We’re very happy to share this record with everyone, and we hope they like it.

(Tickets to Incubus’ February 17, 2018 concert will go on sale starting November 21, 2017 via www.ticketnet.ph and regular Ticketnet outlets or call 911-5555. Ticket prices are P6905, 5905, 3905, 1905, 1005 plus service charge. Media partners are FOXlife, Monster RX 93.1, Philippine Star, and Business Mirror. Produced by Ovation Productions )
