Former 6cyclemind frontman Ney Dimaculangan launched an album, Napapanahon with his new band


Former Award winning 6cyclemind frontman, Ney Dimaculangan, is back with his new band and an album consisted of 10 all Tagalog songs. It was launched last Feb 28,2017 at Historia Bar Boutique and Restaurant. 

Dimaculangan and bass guitar player Louie Lopez were bandmates way back in 1997 even before 6cyclemind was formed and they used to play in Tarlac City. While Patch Sanchez, guitarist, was a session player for Ney when he became a solo artist. Arnee Escobedo, guitarist and back up vocals, has his own band early 2000; Ney considers him as a brother since their former bands were like batchmates in the music scene. When Arnee's band got disbanded, Ney asked him to join him with his new band. And lastly, Kervi Capin, drummer and newest member of the band who just joined last year. Ney and Kervi met through Ney's session drummer Jasper Grutas.

It was a mutual decision for the band members to use "Ney" as their band's name since Ney already established his career in the music industry as a frontman for his former band 6cyclemind. Most of the songs were from Ney's archives. The oldest was written back in 2005. 

When asked how long did it take for them to come up with this album, "4 years or more pa. Hindi ako gumawa ng kanta para irelease agad if we think it's the right time and if we think na maganda na yung kanta for us tsaka natin irelease, kaya medyo relaxed ung paggawa nung album," Dimaculangan explained.

It was a collaborative effort from the band to come up with the 10 songs on their album. Ney said, "Ang importante kasi ung ingredients namin. Which is all of us collaboratively pag pinatunog na namin ung kanta is ung takbo nya iisa ung idea flowing ung idea"

"Ung music dapat may freedom; each individual has its own interpretation. Nakakatuwa lang kung yung interpretation nila is parang ung iniisip mo rin for my songs."

Ney was asked if they have any particular direction that they want to take or style when it comes to their music. Ney considers their music as alternative and "Tunog 90s".

Arnee said "Lahat tayo dumadaan ng ups & downs sa buhay." "Napapanahon" was the name of their album. Ney also added that they want their listeners to have an awareness that they are not the only one who's going through at something and hopefully through their songs they can uplift someone. 

For their debut single, Habag which is now available on digital channels; fans can expect an upcoming music video. "Pinag-iisipan na namin ung magiging music video. we don't want it na sobrang komplikado gusto namin ung maririnig pa rin nila ung kanta, nakafocus pa rin sila sa kanta at the same time nageenjoy din sila sa video."
