Here's a cool tune most appropriate for the hot summer days and nights we are currently experiencing here in Manila. It's a nice retro 80s track by a well-known Filipino rapper named Francis M (or Francis Magalona). Am sure my fellow Pinoys are very much familiar with him, as well as this song, as he has been in the music scene for quite sometime now and has already produced a number of hits. Here's a brief backgrounder of him taken from wikipedia .
Francis "Kiko" Magalona or as he is also known FrancisM, Master Rapper, and The Man From Manila is credited as being the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines to successfully crossover to the mainstream. He is also popularly known as the "King of Pinoy Rap" and is one of the most idolized, celebrated and influential rappers within the genre.
Its one of my fave retro OPM (Original Pilipino Music) tracks from the 80s, so I've decided to do some updating and adding a little more flava to this already great song with some funky/hip-hop beats. I've also manipulated the drum beats during the remixing and added some effects here and there to make it more interesting.
Somethin' for my fellow "kababayans" and foreign visitors alike. Enjoy and ciao for now!
