5 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Favorite Kuya – Mark Redito

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Favorite Kuya – Mark Redito


Mynila Team April 29, 2019 Music & Culture

We’ve been digging, obsessing and finding out more about everyone’s favorite kuya.

We’re getting excited for Mark Redito’s live performance next month on May 24th at XX/XX – If you haven’t got your tickets yet there of Mynila here.

1. Mark is the mind behind ‘Likido’.

An event series focused on featuring artists from underrepresented and marginalized communities – POC, Women & LGTBQ artists & DJ’s

2. Mark’s first introduction to music was in the punk and hardcore scene of Laguna.

Before Spazzkid or Mark Redito Mark found his musical roots in the Laguna hardcore scene – from drumming in Aggressive Dog Attack to vocalist of A Day Like Today singer. Mark toured around the country in his early teens before breaking of into his solo electronic music career.

3. Mark created his own version of Gucci Gang! 

Step aside Lil Pump and Bighead – Mark Redito flipped the Gucci Gang anthem into something more dreamy. Perfect for the summer vibes!

3. One of his favorite film is ‘In The Mood For Love’. 

As an experiment he cut scenes from the film to fit the song and it ended up fitting the mood of the track perfectly and it evolved into an homage of sorts to the great Wong Kar Wai.

4. One of Mark’s favorite books is Maria Popova’s “The Shortness of Life: Seneca on Busyness and the Art of Living Wide Rather Than Living Long”. 

“No activity can be successfully pursued by an individual who is preoccupied … since the mind when distracted absorbs nothing deeply, but rejects everything which is, so to speak, crammed into it. Living is the least important activity of the preoccupied man; yet there is nothing which is harder to learn… Learning how to live takes a whole life, and, which may surprise you more, it takes a whole life to learn how to die.” – Maria Popova

5. Mark LOVES Jolibee.

Maybe you know this one – Mark’s not quite about it. Here’s a video of Mark and a friend ordering a bunch of food and seeing how they stack up on their taste buds ratings.
