Mixedtapez !

Here's a couple of freebies for our loyal Soulsonic viewerz. Maiba naman..lets give some shine to our dj's..This will be only available for a limited time so grab them before you can.

First we have a long lost mixedtape from DMC champ Dj Coki..This was released wayback late 90's when he won the DMC championship.. This is a nonstop scratchmix, check it out!

This is another lost gem, this time from Dj Arbie Won. He was one of the first lokal dj's to released mixedtapes here in the p.i, as early as '95..I even have a newave megamix on cassette. But this one is fairly recent, this was given as a giveaway at one of his gigs in 2004. This one is called "Born in Shaolin vol.1"..Kinda like a megamix of our favorite wu-tang joints. Check the intro and yall know watsup.
And of course, we have one of the best all time mixedtapez ever done, "Demolition Pumpkin Squeeze Music"..A regular on our playlist here at Soulsonic Tv. Released in '94, the grandmaster mixed all the best breakbeats in the history of hiphop and some of the most mindboggling scratching we ever heard. Dangload na!

Femme Fatale

Rap and Hip-Hop is just one of the music genre that is dominated by males.. but just like other genre.. there are still women that will emerge and represent.. Here in the Philippines there are quite few names that made a mark in the local hip-hop/rap scene...
First is "Lady Diane" who is considered the first lady of rap. for the fact that she is the first female rapper who released an album here in P.I.. She came through the scene around the early 90's with her song "Sa-Sa-Damm", which triumphantly ruled the airwaves alongside with the male rappers at that time..
Then in the same year (1991) another female mc came out with an album and she goes by the name of "MC Lara"... Her single "Superquento" (local version of JJ Fad's "Supersonic") became a hit..

There are also other notable females in the local scene around that time but they are part of a group.. like Radha, Jeannie of BOOM which later became Kulay.. and HoneyLuv "Jug" of 4 East Flava..

Fast forward to 1996 .. when a rapper named "Chill" made a name in the scene.. she first appeared on numerous Dongalo Wreckords projects.. before she released her self titled album in 1998 which received commercial success.. Aside from collaborating with other rappers.. Chill even did tracks with rock bands on compilations, bands album and on her second release entitled "Egomaniacal" which also featured a female rap duo namely "Misteazas" that is composed of "Dizzy" & "2tay" who is now a solo artist..

Not too long after Chill.. groups with female members came out like "7 Shots of Wisdom" who has a singer namely "Kim", Grounded has also a female member, and all female member rap groups like "Heaven Sent & Cyphasis" also broke out into the scene around 1999...

Then in 2000 another female mc/singer goes by the name of Candy released an album entitled "Assorted Flava" ...Candy, who is a distant cousin of Geneva Cruz, was a potential artist to takeover that time because she composes her own stuff, but unfortunately her album was poorly promoted and just languished in the record shelves.
A year after.. a young teen who got discovered when she joined a beauty pageant on a local noontime show released her self titled album "L-Smith"..the album featured a revival of Mastaplann's hit, bring that booty, and was the last female mc album that was released up to this day...

Right now there are still quite few names that can be heard and seen performing around the Metro.. like "Hi-C" of MobbStarr (but i don't think she's into rapping though) , "Monique" of 7 Shots who sings & rap and there are also aspiring new talents in the underground & internet scene.. but still none of them released an album yet...

Too Phat: Sana ganito ang hiphop sa pinas...

Ang "Too Phat" ay isa lang sa mga maraming hiphop groups mula sa mga kapatid natin sa Malaysia. Maituturing na sila ang pinaka naging sumikat dahil pati si Warren g. ay naka collaborate nila. Kung inyong pakikinggan, medyo hawig pa nga sa Mastaplann ang tunugan nila, pero mas magaling pa rin syempre ang pinoy. Ang nakakinggit sa hiphop scene nila ay sobrang enjoy sila sa hiphop nila. Check nyo ang video ng performance ng Too phat at makikita nyo kung gano ka-hype ang crowd nila. -contributed by WalangMalay (salamat!)

Bonus: pwede nyo din download ang superhit nila na "Anak Ayam"
Dangload na!
