OvenFresh! Signif presents her new album "Friction"



Signif is a promising Emcee based in NYC. I like her music, I personally dig the song "Alright" from her album "Friction." ---madshock (Rapista.PH)



Overview
Milwaukee-bred, NYC-based emcee Signif presents "Friction", her new album featuring Elzhi, Sadat X, Aldrick, Genesis Renji and Emmy Wildwood as well as production from Skeff Anselm, DJ Puerto Roc, Fate, Radio Raheim and Moteleola.

"Friction is about the conflicts people face, or have faced when dealing with life on a day to day," says Signif. "I played off the 'Friction' title, because even though I live and practice a peaceful way of living and thinking, I’m still faced with a good amount of opposition, so I wanted to address some of those situations. The inspiration behind the album was to share some of my views that may have been misconstrued from previous works, also to keep the listeners engaged on my different perspective to certain social issues, and to have fun of course."

"Friction" is out now on Intelligent Dummies, and available on Signif's Bandcamp.

Track Drop: "Pag-asa Pag-Ibig Paglaya" by Kartel + Lion and the Scouts



Namumutawi ang himig ng pag-asa...
pag-ibig... paglaya...
Makasaysayang awit ng pag-asa...
pag-ibig... paglaya

Kartel (Ilaya + Tala) and Lion and the Scouts composed of: Ilaya and Tala as EmceesJoshwa Espiritu on Vocals, Cholo Montano on Drums, Bryan DavidArbel Matute and Eejay Escalona handling Percussion, Emman Ogsimer on Bass with Rence Abustan and Bobbie Esteleydes on Guitars.. A popular name in the Philippine Hip Hop scene among these guys was Tala, who was with Los Indios Bravos way back.


I’m having a Last Song Syndrome… seriously, they sound so good. Somehow you’ll feel you like to jam with them, spit some bars and clap your hands. A new music flavor is being introduced by these guys in the Philippines which is called Urban ReggaeUrban Reggae is a genre of Reggae with a Hip-Hop flavor but for me, Urban Reggae is more like Reggae Rap. One of the most notable artists who come to my mind upon hearing Urban Reggae was Matisyahu who popularized the songs “Time of Your Song”, “One Day”, “Exaltation” among others.


“Pag-asa Pag-Ibig Paglaya” Official Music Video was Directed by Adjani Arumpac and Edited byLoujaye Sonido of Munting Media Group with Pauline BalbaJay Jamoralin and Adjani Arumpac as Cinematographers.
Check out the Official MTV of “Pag-Asa Pag-Ibig Paglaya” by Kartel at Lion and the Scouts (such a long name but I would just put it as “Kartel Lion Scouts”) at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGniIshusRQ. For now, let’s enjoy the music and celebrate life thru music. Pag-Asa. Pag-Ibig. Paglaya. Such a beautiful song with a wonderful meaning.

You can get their album “PAGSIBOL: Kartel + Lion and the Scouts” for 150Php only at: Bookay-Ukay Pilipinas, No.78 Maginhawa St. Teacher’s Village, Diliman, Quezon City or at Uno Morato sa Garden Area, GYY Building, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
