Apple Launches iTunes in Philippines and Other Asian Countries

26 Jun

Apple just announced the launching of iTunes in 12 Asian countries including Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. iTunes will carry a large option of music from major and independent labels from the Philippines. This will give people in the Philippines opportunity to also download music, apps, books, movies, podcasts, and tv shows.

There will be more opportunity for artists from the Philippines to get their music out to an international audience. I just looked up a few artists from the Philippines such as Kyla, Nina, and Juris Fernandez. I was not able to find these artists before on iTunes but now I can. For artists living abroad, this will also give them more exposure to Filipinos living in the Philippines as well.

Internationally renowned DJ/Producer Diplo was interviewed by Power 106’s DJ Vick One in Los Angeles. Diplo stated, “I like that Filipino burger place Jollibees, man, you know. They got that chicken, burger, fries together.”  Not only does Diplo have good taste when it comes to music, he also has good taste when it comes to eats.

Yes, not only Pilipinos should eat at Jollibee, but all people of various ethnicities should try out Jollibee and taste Jollibee’s sweet Jolly goodness.

DJ RaiZe: The Fast Life 2012 Mix Review

29 May

During my 1 hour treadmill workout earlier, listening to nice beats is a must. I heard that this was  DJ Roli Rho’s favorite recent mix on twitter, so I had to definitely check it out. It’s mostly Progressive House with some Hip Hop and Dutch House thrown in. Sometimes pure Progressive House mixes get stale, but this mix gave some subtle variety that kept me entertained. Great mix!
