LISTEN TO HIP-HOP ARTIST NOBRVND'S NEW SINGLE “SINAYANG”

Some artists choose to slow down and take this time to recharge, but others like Nobrvnd, choose to hustle. Formerly known as the vocalist of indie pop band Caffeine and Taurine, 24-year-old artist/producer Brandon Garcia a.k.a. Nobrvnd (no-br?hnd) continues to create heat for the airwaves with his latest single "Sinayang". NoBrvnd contacted CHELLY if he wanted to do a collab, sent him a demo of the track and got his recorded vocals the day after. The song was finished last December 2019 and was set to release last February but it got delayed because of the pandemic."I usually write about past life events and add in some of my imaginations to make things exciting. But in this case, we thought about this song as a sequel from one of my singles called “Bakit," on how NoBrvnd went about writing the song.According also to him, "Sinayang is an upbeat hip hop track combined with exciting and arpeggiating sounds. The track talks about waking up with no worries as you moved on from your relationship as they wasted their chances on you." GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT NOBRVND HERE.NoBrvnd started writing/producing when he was 14 years old. He used to play around with a software called Mixcraft. He has been around in the local music scene since 2014 and was a part of a post-hardcore band and broke up in 2015 to create an Indie pop band called Caffeine and Taurine. During his time in the band he has explored more on the production side and it fueled his passion on doing solo projects. 2018 was the start of him being as Nobrvnd and it was a successful debut for a side project and it turned into a full-time thing. His influences play a big role in making his sound distinct. He listens to music almost every day and subconsciously, he picks up sounds that he'd like to hear on his next record. "Generally speaking, I don’t like the gatekeeping mindset in the music scene. Music is created to connect/vibe with people, not divide them. Music is supposed to be open to everyone regardless of your social status, gender, or race," when asked about his least favorite thing about rap.Nobrvnd sheds nothing but pure emotion onto his music. As an independent artist, with Caffeine and Taurine and his recent solo work, he's already put out dozens of songs which showcases his talent.

DIONELA JOINS ACCLAIMED HIP-HOP ARTISTS FLICT-G AND DELLO ON “AGAW” REMIX

Up-and-coming singer-songwriter Dionela teams up with rappers Flict-G and Dello on the remix of his smash hit, “Agaw.”The original version, which has racked up more than a million streams on Spotify, recounts the soulful pop persona’s devastating experience of being left behind in a breakup. The song has built a reputation for its wounded sentimentality and heartfelt chorus, and easily stands out among the pack—thanks to  Dionela’s expressive R&B vocals.With Flict-G and Dello hopping on the remix, “Agaw” delivers the punch with a more in-your-face approach. Both hip-hop acts aid in dropping verses that swing between despair and helplessness, complementing the track’s skittering, atmospheric beats and cinematic production.According to Dionela, “Agaw” remix is far more emotionally tugging than its previous iteration, and owes its magic to the impressive contributions of his collaborators. “I’ve been a fan of Flict-G and Dello even before I started making music,” the budding star said. “It’s an honor to work with artists whose creativity inspires me to be better. Their infectious and razor-sharp lyricism not only adds depth to the song’s overall appeal, but also takes everything up a notch in all artistic and emotional fronts.”Both Flict-G and Dello express excitement in working with the young singer-songwriter, with the latter feeling motivated in putting a different flavor to the track. Dello adds, “It still has the same feels, but rap listeners would find comfort in this particular bop because our verses slap. It has crossed genres and explored a different vibe.”Flict-G on the hand, reveals that working remotely on the project during the pandemic proved to be challenging to all parties, but somehow managed to bring out the best in them. “The remix is labor of passion and love. We’ve all worked hard to finish this collaboration despite the limitations and circumstances.”“Agaw” remix is now available on all digital platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.
