‘TROPICAL DISKORAL’: a Truly Pinoy Electronic Compilation to Celebrate Filipino Independence Day


Mynila Team June 12, 2019 Music & Culture

Filipina Belgian-based Producer/DJ UNOS presents ‘TROPICAL DISKORAL’ project, a compilation of tracks from electronic artists based in the Philippines to celebrate Filipino Independence Day.

The project comprises electronic artists who are showcasing new sounds from the archipelago, around the world. It sonically investigates new electronic music coming from the Philippines and its wider diaspora.

The compilation came together after she reached out to the well known artist Similarobjects who helped her give life to her project and Tropical Futures institute who gave a platform to it. The aim is to celebrate Filipino artists and encourage them to create music on their own terms whilst also being proud of their heritage.

On the project, UNOS said:

“As I have been working for the past few years on my musical growth, I’ve realised I wanted to learn more about my cultural roots. While discovering about the Filipino electronic music scene, I understood the lack of its representation in Belgium and worldwide. That’s when I came across the idea to promote electronic artists who are based in the Philippines, allowing their music to be heard on a global platform.”

From Europe to the Philippines, ‘TROPICAL DISKORAL’ features Like Animals, LUSTBASS, Pamcy, Paola Mauricio, Tarsius, Ube Jam, BP Valenzuela and Similarobjects himself. Each artist brings their own flavour to the project with their unique sounds and dance-worthy beats.
