3:00PM DISMISSAL TIME, BASKETBALL COURT - gecko
3:00PM DISMISSAL TIME, BASKETBALL COURT is inspired by the times my parents forgot to pick me up from grade school, Sunday afternoon hype, basketball courts, Padi’s Point, Gerry’s Grill, and other classic restobars, hours spent in traffic, commuting, Php 400 strobe lights bought from Lazada, and dancing with friends. | gecko is a home DJ available for birthday parties, wedding receptions, and office celebrations.
4ragadigiogo - W

4ragadigiogo | Can’t quite explain how I ended up with what is essentially a Western soundtrack wrapped up in funk with a sprinkling of punk and other bitsies. In my mind, there’s a kind of pace and timber to all of these that feels like an 8-hour sweaty, dusty, incredibly humid and libag-ridden road trip in across Negros (between Victorias and Dumaguete) in an old Ford Cortina (Mark 3, from the ‘70s).

"Ate Isa Ngang Mountain Dew, Yung Neon" - Mac Andre

The Spotify playlist I made tired to talk about heat and warmth directed towards the cool embrace of a friend/a soft drink/a favorite song. “Ate Isa Ngang Mountain Dew, Yung Neon” was made with a friend. | Mac Andre Arboleda is from Los Baños, Philippines.

Basta driver, sweet lover - P.

Beerhouse sa may Zapote tulay - AK

Beerhouse sa may Zapote tulay | Ito ang aking music playlist na ginasgas ko last year noong lockdown. Supposedly sa Spotify siya kaso wala lahat ng kanya sa spotify at finally binuo ko siya sa youtube instead. Ang naaalala ko kasi (at somehow namimiss ko) ay yung jeep na sinasakyan ko ng 2am from EDSA Pasay pauwi ng Las Piñas tapos kasabay ko mga taga palengke na may bayong na isda. Mabilis yung biyahe at mahangin. Usually ito yung music if hindi sa station na 96.3 ahaha. Naalala ko rin dito yung nabagok ako sa jeep tapos niyaya ako ng jeepney driver uminom sa isang beerhouse sa may Zapote (gitna ng Cavite at Las Piñas) para sakin daw yung yelo tapos sa kanya yung bucket ng beer. akala niya kasi lalake ako.

Ang huling kanta sa playlist ay kay Claire Del Fuente kasi nalungkot ako na parte siya ng mga namatay sa COVID. Yung ospital na malapit sa bahay ko yung isa sa mga ospital kung saan siya nirush ng madaling araw kasi wala sila mapuntahan. Nakatent siya sandali tapos sinugod uli sa sumunod na ospital. Sa tingin ko lahat ng kamatayan ngayon kasalanan ng gobyerno. Dalawa na rin na kakilala ko namatay sa COVID.

cold karaoke - Dom

cold karaoke | A playlist hinting at how cold (lamig, ulan, etc.) has been expressed in or through songs, either as a central theme or in passing.

Linggo sa Barberya - Sig

Linggo sa Barberya | When I was in High School, Sundays were for 2 things — 1 for Church (w/ intense fights of my parents bec of time mismanagement; & 2 the weekly visits to the Barbershop, cause High Schools were particular about our hair length. We go to the mall, to cool down heads, more than the haircut, really.
