SHINE ON – A New Collaborative Single coming soon

Shine On Release Date poster
SHINE ON brings together the hip-hop stylings of Darick DDS Spears, the jazz/pop sensibilities of Natalie Jean & the earthy rock/pop flavor of Dennis Sy in an Alternative/Pop tune with a message of positivity & hope in the midst of unrest in today’s social climate.

This song wakes us up and helps us to understand that skin color and every other difference we have, should never cause killing and mayhem. As it is far more important for us to put our differences aside, so that we can work together towards having a future that is bright. As we set good examples for our children and stop the hate so that love can shine through.

Without much pre-planning and intent, this song somehow came together during the last couple of weeks during offline collaborations and discussions between the artists, and will be released as a digital single on September 15, 2016. 

The record kicks out a solid message of positivity and unity that is definitely needed during these troubling times. The mix of rap and melody with a blend of vocal harmonies throughout definitely gave a well constructed track. Stronger music has great order (solid beat, transitions, bridges, breakdowns etc) and everything about the track structure was on point.

The soon to be released single is also included in Bongo Boy Records Volume 10 for worldwide distribution.

Indie Stories: A Shared Struggle

Last Monday I was able to immerse myself in the music and artistry of many Indie Collaborative members, and even got to bring some of their music home to further enjoy in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

But apart from the music sharing, sometimes the opportunity to converse with fellow artists offers a glimpse into a reality that goes beyond the creative. Sometimes when we’re comfortable enough, we get to talk about shared struggles, shared challenges, and shared dreams. They’re the stories that enter the realm of the unglamorous – the amount of money already invested in chasing dreams; the sometimes daily struggle to believe that our dreams matter and make sense; the fight to stay positive when the onslaught of negativity is too prevalent to ignore; the drought of encouragement when you need it most.

They’re the things that maybe only a fellow artist would understand, and somehow when we’re lucky enough to have such conversations, we find ourselves no longer alone in carrying the weight of unspoken fears and frustrations.

The CDs that I was able to bring home with me are your “babies” – a testament to your artistry, to creative thought, but ALSO to your unwavering spirit and dedication to see things through, to believe in your vision and carry it to fruition.

I just want to take a moment to offer a humble SALUTE to all you wonderful artists! The struggles are all too real, but in all of you I find every reason to believe in the power of inspiration, and to focus on the journey and find ways to make it more meaningful – with the people I meet, and in ways I can contribute.


Happy 4th Anniversary DSYMusic!


Today we find cause to celebrate and be grateful not just because it’s Christmas Day, but also because it’s the 4th year anniversary of DSYMusic!

And as we give thanks to 4 wonderful years of creative pursuits and the support all of you have shown us, I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge the many contributions of one amazing lady.

She believed in the vision that was DSYMusic long before DSYMusic was born. She believed in words yet to be written… in music yet to be heard. She believed in the power of music to help make a difference in this world, and she became the chief architect of putting meaning to what DSYMusic can become, and what it is today.

She has that unique ability of bring a mere vision to its grand fruition – adding purpose and meaning to it, and working out the many details required to reach the finish line.

None of what we have achieved thus far is possible without her guidance, steadfast and unwavering belief, and attention to the minutest detail. We at DSYMusic follow her lead, and count on her to traverse the roughest storms with her constant faith and a cheerfulness and positive spirit that lights up a room every time she enters.

And the funny thing is, she’s not even aware of the impact that she has and her hand stamp written all over DSYMusic 🙂

So please help me in showing a whole lot of love to my business partner, manager, and dear friend Mylz Tolentino of Serendipity Hype Productions.

Her generosity is a legacy we at DSYMusic will always strive to uphold as we face more challenges in the future, in striving to make a difference through music.

Update: DSYMusic’s Christmas Morning Holiday Drive

Because of your participation and generous contributions to DSYMusic‘s Christmas Morning Holiday Drive, not only were we able to lend a helping hand towards the legacy of Gener Oropesa, but in our little way, we were also able to bring smiles to children’s faces through the efforts of our partner in Manila Arpie Patriarca and the FHM (Feed Hungry Minds) organization. Thank you so much to all who participated. You truly are angels! You are the reason why there are many reasons to be grateful this Holiday Season!
