So Much feat JIB [FREE DOWNLOAD] + NEWS & TOUR DATES!

“SO MUCH” original tune from Bob Marley “SO MUCH TROUBLE” – JIB and I made a digital reggae tribute tune [yeah another one] free for ya’ll to DOWNLOAD! Literally this month and next month will be a blast ūüėČ Stoked and always having a positive outlook on things, here are some updates:

1. GLIDEWISE – ¬†my brand of¬†fiberglass skimboards I designed and shaped for fun [2001-2006] Eventually it became a backyard business on the side back in the day. Pondering on things I did so much to help those kids before who couldn’t afford a board. I sponsored them in competitions and gave them what they needed. Now I reopened that name to carry some of the functional carriers for vinyls as well as for beach use, whatever you think you can use it with. Also¬†to launch my aerial business as well under one name later part of this year. Fingers crossed… LIKE and SUPPORT¬†http://fb.com/glidewise better yet! Pre-Order online this coming MAY 2015!

2. Gigs and more gigs. I humbly thank Budoy of Junior Kilat, SigbinHaus SoundSystem and of course most specially CDMC for being there to satisfy my craving for producing music and as well as perform those music we made. Though CDMC has just started to regroup, it will take some time to get back the momentum once we had before. We are getting¬†super busy¬†and priorities change. I know there are some people who were anxious for the next album after “WATER FOR YOUR SOUL” and at the same time pissed about us for some good reason. We disappeared having not to tour on different islands that really wanted to hear and see CDMC live. hehe Don’t worry, we shall be performing soon this year and with a new album [yeah almost 6 years now hahaha]. Anyway, on that note here some dates to remember…

GLIDEWISE UAS

This has been so long overdue! Here you go! Snippets of nice flights I did with my aerial rig. Official website and list of services coming very soon!

This gear is not a very¬†easy and cheap thing to make, as advertised by ready-to-fly “drones”. But as they say, it’s either you have the money and time, or you have the money and time! hahaha

I still went through the long process¬†of building my own flyer. As many RC hobbyist would always say, “If you ain’t got the money but you have the time, build it yourself”. Well, I didn’t have both. So with pure determination and 3 long years of self-study on how it works — building from scratch, crashing, figuring out¬†how the camera works — I can say it’s been quite a tough ride. To say the least, I went through lots of frustration and a lot of¬†time spent on refining what I can proudly call “my very own” aerial rig. Also,¬†the huge¬†support from my brother and wife pretty much pushed me to soldier on and learn as fast as I could.

To be honest, the spending does not stop, but the fun and outcome is definitely worth it. I intend to shoot not only my music videos, but also¬†use my gear for aerial mapping — taking photos and videos up in the air and making one big map for the people who need it — also shooting a range of other things: from farmlands and resorts, to disaster stricken areas, and rescue missions.

So yeah, enjoy the ride! (PS: DO WATCH THIS IN HD!)

If you like it, share it. ūüôā

Great Year!

Yeey yow! Haven’t been writing ova here, but I assure you all of this will make up for all the music that I haven’t shared. It’s been a great start of the year for me, going back full time on music and having been able to perform and tour as much. As well as taking a break on shooting aerial footage, gave me more time to design my rig for more efficient flying. It’s not cheap to crash, and it has been painful loosing my gopro hero 3 black edition last year. Some crashes here and there for the past 3 years of flying taught me how not to crash and hahaha…and building…and re-building. I shall have a compilation of my proudest moments in aerial filming ūüėÄ come check out my youtube channel and watch some of my stuffs! SUBSCRIBE!

GRUPO NOPO PROFILES featuring EPOS

Hey hey! Before anything else, I have been working on several projects at the moment. From prototyping my aerial rig (designing and crashing my aerial video systems), shooting some videos, gigging around, recording secretly with co-producer / keyboardist YanniBoi of CDMC (watch out for that – not a secret anymore).

I just got back from Siargao with BigAnswerSound [Japan] and SigbinHaus. A month ago, went to Dipolog for my brother’s wedding, also down North Zamboanga and other towns reconnecting with my family roots. Visited Bicol – Sorsogon, did some long road trip and nature tripping and a little bit of surfing. Shot some more videos as well.

Earlier in February, SigbinHaus [Rastaninja aka Budoy + Brother Clay aka DJ Lapu-Lapu] was able to do some medical missions and giving back love to our friends in Tanauan, Leyte. As well all know, until know they need all the help we can give. Will get back to that in the coming month…

So this video I’m sharing with you right now has been out since late last year. I firmly believe that for every craft one needs to practice till they get used to it and get good at it.¬†PLEASE DO NOT FOLLOW IN ANYWAY, WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED RIDER. THIS WAS DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL LONGBOARDER. Okay, I’m not shouting, just reminding.hehe ENJOY the RIDE!!!
