Wovensound, Ihasamic! Collaborate on single

SINGAPORE-based producer Wovensound and hip-hop artist Ihasamic! have dropped their new single “End Simulation.” Exploring the outer limits of their signature sound with sprawling instrumentation, both artists took their love for drum and bass-influenced rap-rock into the song. “This song is a tribute to two great things that I love: Linkin Park and sci-fi shows like The Matrix, Blade Runner, and more,” Wovensound said in a statement. The song is part of Wovensound and Ihasamic!’s six-track debut EP Vertigos Fulfilled, dropping this month.

Rapper Flict G releases music video

FILIPINO rapper Flict G has released the official music video of his new single “Aking Lahi.” Interspersed with a performance that features Flict G is footage of activists taking their grievances to the street, and hip-hop artists saying the lines in their local language or dialect. “Aking Lahi” was written by Flict G, but to make the material more effective in capturing the Filipino regional experience, he asked friends in the local hip-hop community to translate some of the verses in 13 different languages other than Tagalog, namely: Ilocano (Patrick Vidal), Ibaloi (Patrick Bullet Silverio), Pangasinense (Freaky Ky / Jason Haft), Kapampangan (Arvee Belonio), Bikolano (Mikidee Michael David), Waray (Ronmark Labasano), Bisaya (Hizuka Sato), Ilonggo (Tuglaks Joren Machan), Maranao (Salman Mambuay), Maguindanao (Asnawe Baraguir Mawe), Tausug (AJ Shinoda), Yakan (AL Mohtaz Abubakar), and Chavacano (AJ Shinoda). The result is an anthem of resistance and inspiration, unifying diverse voices to demand meaningful change within the system. The music video is out now on YouTube via Sony Music Philippines.
