Continuing my goal to share some of the best Original Pinoy Music (OPM) to the world and promote our local talents, here's another great Pinoy hip-hop group, which I kinda like coz' of their continuously evolving sound and original style without trying too hard to sound foreign.
Here's a brief backgrounder as quoted from their multiply site, "Dice and K9 or better known in the HipHop community as Mobbstarr is a hip-hop collective composed of producers, rappers and a singer. Formed in 2002, the group first enjoyed mainstream success with their smash hit Itsumo which propelled their second album entitled Mobbstarr to hip-hop royalty status. Their first album Mobb Music which was released exclusively in Cebu made enough noise for them to be noticed by industry giants like Warner Music ."

Am uploading a sample of their latest track called "Eargasmic," which I've personally remixed and tweaked to make it more DJ friendly and dancefloor ready. Inspired by remix services such as Mixx-It, Groove Deluxe, and Funky Mix, I have added some intros and outros to the song with some filters and FX in between, without changing the structure and arrangement of the original. More cool tracks are included in their latest album if you enjoyed this one, so you can support them by buying a copy.
This song is a proof of the group's versatility because of its more danceable, four-to-the-floor beats with some Daft Punk-like chorus in the background, as compared to their previous hits, which is also good, but more funky, slow, hip-hop style.

Now, get ready for some Crush Groovin', Body Movin', Record Breakin', Hit Makin' vibe, as this is a prelude to what my upcoming mix set would sound like. PEACE!
