I'm jumpstarting the week with a combination of the best of both worlds, old school OPM hip/hop and classic new wave. Here's a nice mash-up between Pinoy hip-hop pioneers, MastaPlann and the original gothic rockers, The Cure.
Mastaplann is an all-Filipino Hip Hop group that was formed in 1992 in the Philippines, with original group members Butch Velez aka Tracer One, Johnny Luna aka Type Slickk, Disco Mix Competition DJs Sonny Abad, Noel Macanaya aka DJ MOD, Lopi Guzman aka DJ Lopi, and managed by Jesse Gonzales. Butch and Johnny were balikbayans from the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles, CA, Sonny a balikbayan from Hercules, CA, near the San Francisco Bay Area and Noel and Lopi native Filipinos.
On the other hand, The Cure is an English rock band that formed in Crawley, Sussex in 1976. The band has experienced several lineup changes, with frontman, guitarist and main songwriter Robert Smith—known for his iconic wild hair, pale complexion, smudged lipstick and frequently gloomy and introspective lyrics—being the only constant member.
Now, here's what I got when I decided to mash-up two classic tunes from exactly different genres.
Opposites really do attract, don't they??? Enjoy mates! :)
