I love mashups. Particularly the ones I stumble across on YouTube.
Ever heard of Sam Tsui? He’s quite the hit on YouTube… he puts out some of the coolest mashups online and most of his covers are awesomely arranged and produced by his good friend (and in my opinion, a musical genius), Kurt Hugo Schneider. Together they also do solo covers which, more often than not sound way better than the originals.
I follow (and subscribe) to a good number of independent artists on YouTube – really artistic and far more talented than a lot of mainstream artists we usually listen to.
Since we are in the topic of mashups… check out Sam Tsui’s latest collaboration with Kurt Hugo Schneider – “Summer Pop Medley 2012”. Just awesome.
Amazing spin they did on a handful of current hits, right? Check out Sam and Kurt’s YouTube channels here and here respectively.
The best and the brightest personalities in Philippine social media take center stage once again as Globe’s [email protected] Awards 2012 kicks off!
My wife and I were invited to the event’s launch which was held at buddha-bar, Kalayaan, Makati City last April 25, 2012. It was the happening-est place in the entire metro.
Everyone who is anyone in the Philippine social media scene was present. You Just know that something important was going to happen.
It was great seeing old friends and new faces alike. Everyone was either busy mingling, moving about or clicking away on their smartphones doing real-time tweets and FB status updates on what was taking place during the launch.
It’s always awesome to hang out with people whom you share the same passion with. Conversations are never dull and always engaging.
Just like the celebrities and personalities in attendance, food and drinks were in absolute abundance. I kid you not… all sorts of food and beverages just kept on coming. *burp!* Excuse me! Hehehe…
The launch was hosted mainly by eventologist, all-around-good-guy (and Instagram addict), Tim Yap.
