Who Are Performing At MMF?

April 27, 2012
Before I say anything else, I’d like to thank Peter de Jesus for all the details I will be posting yet again. Haha! Now, since you all must’ve read my post about the festival, time to get your ears tingling with happiness for here are some of the performers who will be gracing us with their presence during the festival. Remember, only four more days to go till MMF!!

| Afrika Bambaataa |
Who is Bam? He’s “only” been named one of the three “Godfathers of Hip-Hop”. A true honor that he shares with fellow breakbeat pioneers Grandmaster Flash and DJ Kool Herc.

| Ali Shaheed Muhammad |
Do I even need to introduce this guy to you? Shaheed was a member of the group A Tribe Called Quest. The highly-publicized, platinum-selling hip-hop group made up of MC’s Phife Dawg, Q-Tip and himself Ali Shaheed Muhammad. With their electric jazz-and-funk-infused rap rhythms, the sound of hip-hop had never be the same since. Try asking Ludacris, Outkast, Phraell and Kanye. All of them are self-confessed fans of A Tribe Called Quest.

| Shinichi Osawa |
This guy is an international DJ that you just can’t imagine. He is one of the most creative electronic superstars to come out from the Eastern side of the globe. This DJ/remixer/producer started out as the leader of the acid-jazz collective Mondo Grosso in Japan. When the group separated, he worked as a producer for a lot of Japanese pop, R&B and jazz acts. He sooner revived the Mondo Grosso name, releasing two albums worldwide.

| Razorback |
Yes people, Razorback is still here, still at it and still making eargasmic tunes out of noise like it was 1995. Since the band’s modest Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin covering back in the early 90’s. Razorback is now made up of vocalist Kevin Roy, guitarist Tirso Ripoll, bassist Louie Talan, drummer Brian Velasco and guitarist Manuel Legarda has gone to take its place in the sanctified halls of OPM as one of the country’s most persistent rock acts.

| Kjwan |
The Manila-based group has been overwhelming since the members got together in 2003, hammering eardrums with their merciless sound, most notable in the head-banging first single ”Daliri”. Through the years, this band have become a favorite among foot-stomping, hard-rocking Pinoys everywhere. Fans will understand what I mean when I say “Bastusan na!”

| Wilabaliw |
What do you imagine when you hear the band names like Queso, Sinosikat and Skychurch? Now what do you imagine when certain people in these bands spend the night together forming one powered band? Yes folks Wilabaliw is THAT awesome. The project was visualized by the bandleader Ian Tayao back when he was still with his former band, Queso. The rock pioneer fantasized a group that would not only deliver solid musical performance, but also a hell of a rollercoaster ride of a show.

And many more to be announced — SWEEEEEET!
