Once upon a time, he used to play drums for HERBS (roots reggae dancehall band formed 1998) – recorded a self-titled album and released in 2002. As the years progressed his interest was drawn to producing music which lead to the group CDMC (dancehall reggae band) when his former band HERBS disbanded in 2005. Gaining recognition from winning the Motorola Rock’moto 2006, CDMC toured heavily around the Philippine islands…From then on, he was also DJing from time to time in private parties and producing numerous tracks for CDMC and would later on be collaborations with: Jr.Kilat [Cebu, Phils], Cattski [Cebu, Phils], Ranking Ruff [U.S.A./CHINA], D.Smith [NewMexico, U.S.A], Michal Garcia [Texas, U.S.A.], Gaucho [Davao, Phils], Milagros Dancehall Collective, [Manila, Phils], Lady-I [Manila, Phils], Skankin’ Brews [Cebu, Phils] and JCOY [Cebu, Phils].

Later on was invited to join Jr.Kilat as their touring / sampling DJ in 2009. Within that year, SigbinHaus SoundSystem was also formed. Teamed up with Budoy [lead vocals of Jr.Kilat – a dub reggae band] and GK aka MC Island Rudebwoy. They had traveled the road less traveled areas of the Philippine Islands and extensively performing at beach resorts, private places, clubs, and what ever venue you can think of!


In 2010, CoolieDread represented the PHILIPPINES alongside Budoy in the Shanghai World Expo [China] for 6 months. They also performed extensively around Shanghai and was also invited to Host and DJ several countries in the World Expo with-in those time…

Currently back in Cebu, Philippines, still active in both bands CDMC, Jr.Kilat plus SigbinHaus SoundSystem dj crew: Music will continually evolve…Spreading positive vibes in every way!
