© Franz Lopez Photography + StratoBOX™ Full BTS Coverage of IDEAS EP Launch
We were invited to cover the launch of Tide/ Edit’s debut album, “IDEAS EP.” Tide/Edit is one of the bands behind the music of our show, PHL360. Clarence Garcia, who’s one of the brains of the band and plays the guitar, is also the genius behind some of the music which can be heard all throughout our show’s first season. As we intended to present a fresh outlook on reality shows, Tide/ Edit and Maude Manila’s music played a vital role in the reality show’s success.
The venue was held at 121 Allegro Center, Pasong Tamo Ext. Makati. Together with PHL360’s casts, Dong Ho and Hannah Villasis, we joined in as the room was filled with vibrant indie atmosphere.
The event was organized by Tony Rago who even flew in from Los Angeles. He is a producer and also one of PHL360’s friends from BakitWhy.com, a Filipino-American community in U.S. He’s Italian but definitely has a Filipino heart and who is well versed in music.
The album features fresh tunes which is way different from today’s mainstream music. Tide/Edit performs mainly Instrumental music and it’s definitely a good way on presenting a different meal to the table.
Tide/Edit’s genre is a fusion of indie rock, post rock, math rock and small repeated melodies. The band says they’re still having difficulties describing their sounds so as of now, they call it “happy music”.
The Inspiration of this album is all about service and reaching out to the community. The event was held to support Filipinos who were decapitated recently by the typhoons’ wrath as proceeds of the CDs will be donated to them.
This is Tide/ Edit’s way of giving back since they have also been typhoon victims. Their experience is what brought them together as a band and that inspired them to create this album.
Their album is definitely a must have for all you indie music lovers out there!
