Rising rap star HERO joins forces with Filipino hitmaker Matthaios on “Dito”! The new single is a rap love song that talks about being willing to spend as much time with your bae as possible. Both the young rap stars show chemistry on the track, which is an undeniably catchy bop that sounds tailor-made for road trips with your significant other.

The song is also accompanied by a music video that co-stars the artists with real-life identical twins Ritchelle and Rochelle San Pedro. The subplot of the visuals takes a twist at the end when it is revealed that the muses look alike due to the fact that they are twins.

Watch the music video for “Dito” below!

Ylona Garcia’s new song "Vibin" is definitely a summer vibe that’s ready for your warm-weather playlists! The relatable track that details the early stages of relationships is a fun bop that the 88 Rising singer explained more in detail below:

"The track is about meeting someone new and not wanting to feel pressured about defining the relationship-we're just vibing and enjoying every moment as they come."

The vibey single also serves as a preview for what’s next to come for Ylona sonically in her next care package of singles. Until then, we can enjoy the recently released music video for “Vibin” which showcases the Filipina singer turning up amongst friends and performing her lyrics with some light choreo in between. We’re really excited about the direction of the vocalist’s career so far!

Raven is a rising singer-songwriter/producer from the Philippines. After racking up more than 10 million streams with his debut EP Lika Na, the young musician is back with a new single “Hara” that puts a modernized twist on the popular pinoy “harana” style of music. The new song combines different genres, fusing lo-fi elements, hip-hop sonics, and intricate guitar melodies.

“Unlike some of the songs that I’ve written so far, most of which are mere expressions of admiration, this particular track chronicles the experience of wooing someone in hopes of capturing their heart,” he shares. “It’s an expression of sentimental nature, but it also comes from a place of humility on the suitor’s end.”

Listen to Raven’s new song “Hara” below.

MYX Global Featured Artist, Ez Mil, has been working hard honing his craft for years with his family as inspiration and support. He is currently manifesting success with years of preparation meeting the right opportunities. Although what might seem like an overnight success really isn't, it is actually years of ongoing grind that he's had since moving to Las Vegas 4 years ago from Olangapo City, Subic City in the Philippines.

Ez is not just a talented lyricist, songwriter, musician, dancer, skateboarder, director, editor & producer, but at the core of it all - he's a proud Filipino, "despite any turmoil" within his birth country. Although his skin color might not reflect his identity that he shouts on his recent hit, "Panalo (Win)." he shouts, "I'm Pinoy!" when criticized for being "Tisoy." The Wish Bus has launched in the US & is now become an international brand known for breaking the best of Filipino talent like Bugoy Drilon, KZ Tandingan, IV of Spades and Ben&Ben to global audiences.

ASAP (All-Star Sunday Afternoon Party) also now known as ASAP Natin To', to mean '"This Is Our ASAP"'). It is a Philippine television variety show produced under ABS-CBN.  ASAP is the longest running Sunday noontime variety show & became the first live entertainment program in the Philippines to be broadcast in true high-definition picture. It is currently hosted by Martin NieveraZsa Zsa PadillaGary ValencianoSarah GeronimoOgie AlcasidRegine Velasquez-Alcasid.

The show is known for bringing together an all-star cast that include the most popular artists of the country like KZ Tandingan, Moira Dela Torre, Inigo Pascual alongside international guests like Dua Lipa, New Rules, CNCO, Haile Steinfeld & countless more. International record labels that are promoting new releases constantly vy for a featured performance on the popular show that not only airs on television, but also airs on ABS-CBN Entertainment's YouTube channel that is one of Asia's biggest with over 39M subscribers and 40B plays.

While Ez has been guesting or been featured on some of the biggest international hip hop platforms like Power 106 and AllHipHop.com, he wanted to have the first global TV performance of the new LIVE version of the song on ASAP. For this special LIVE version, he added a Bisayan verse to the song that already included Tagalog (Filipino), Ilocano & English on it as well as recorded it with hip hop's #1 leading band 1500 or Nothin, known for touring with his influencers like Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z.

History was made because while YouTubers around the world are reacting to his Wish Bus USA video, the LIVE performance video shows the amount of energy and intensity he puts into every performance. New and existing fans rushed to KTX.PH to purchase tickets for his upcoming virtal concert after they saw the amazing performance. The concert will air for a 24 hour period for the various timezones across the world after it airs LIVE 4/17 at 8P PST & 4/18 12P PHT in Manila. His ASAP performance has already started gaining reactions with reactors like Cliff Beats for just the Manila airing, watch as the performance starts to roll out globally after being posted on Ez's personal YouTube channel.

Ez recorded the LIVE version of Panalo at Las Vegas' premiere recording Studio A, with recording/tracking Engineer Jacob Evan Magness. Jake has been known for his work with Machine Gun Kelly and the Santana Billboard #1 singles inside the building. He invited the live band to join him for this special performance as they have been known for showmanship not only on tour but as a backing band for TV shows like SkeeTV, playing alongside his favorite artists like Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar & icons like Jay-Z.

Prior to the global airing of ASAP Natin To' on Sunday 12P worldwide, YouTube reactors like Cliff Beats specializing in hip hop, & R&B reaction videos from the greats like Eminem and Nas will kick off the global trend.

In the refreshed "All Out Of Love" version, Inigo is set to vulnerably croon about the empty feeling of losing a significant other over a guitar-driven trap ballad setting from Moophs.

First in a series of Air Supply remakes by ABS-CBN’s Tarsier Records

Inigo Pascual, in collaboration with music producer Moophs, will recreate one of Air Supply’s classics, “All Out Of Love,” bringing a pop re-imagination of the 1980 worldwide hit on February 5 (Friday).


In the refreshed version, the Filipino pop star is set to vulnerably croon about the empty feeling of losing a significant other over a guitar-driven trap ballad setting from Moophs.

This release is the first in Tarsier Records’ series of Air Supply remakes the ABS-CBN Music label is doing for 2021. It is also aligned with Air Supply’s Valentine’s Day US campaign.

A song by British-Australian soft rock duo Air Supply, “All Out Of Love” was originally written by Graham Russell and Clive Davis. It ranked no. 2 in the United States’ Hot 100, reached no. 11 in UK’s Top 40, and was one of the “100 Greatest Love Songs” in VH1’s list in 2003.

“All Out Of Love” is the latest collaboration between Inigo and Moophs, who recently released the dancehall-pop tune “Always,” which became part of Apple Music’s “The 100 Best Songs of 2020.” They also joined a band of international artists for “RISE” - a cross-cultural unity track featuring Eric Bellinger (USA), Sam Concepcion (PH), Zee Avi (Malaysia), and Vince Nantes (USA).

The two artists are also behind the island pop track “Catching Feelings,” which has already garnered over 10 million streams on Spotify and over 100K dance challenge entries across various social media platforms.

Inigo continues to make his presence in the global stage especially as his “Options” album, a collection of multiple international collaborations he has done in the past two years, is slated to drop this 2021.

Rediscover the Air Supply classic “All Out Of Love” in the reimagined version of Inigo and Moophs, out on music streaming platforms on February 5 (Friday). For updates, follow Tarsier Records on various social media accounts @tarsierrecords.
