Promising newcomer dia maté dials down the R&B melodrama for a luscious summertime tune that is built around laid-back melodies, indie-pop influences, and tropical-sounding rhythms. Written by mate herself and produced by IV of Spades’ Blaster Silonga, “Dream” explores the hesitation of commitment and moving forward despite falling in love with someone. According to the 19-year-old artist, the song was inspired by how people sometimes close themselves off subconsciously to protect their heart from the trauma induced by past relationships. “That’s what ultimately holds us back: the fear of being let down again,” the young singer-songwriter says. “ Dream essentially describes wanting to wake up from the past, to pretend it was only a dream.” Upbeat melancholia dia maté originally penned and produced the demo for “Dream” on guitar, but the rising pop/R&B star eventually wanted to revamp the track with a more upbeat and energetic vibe to complement the melancholic appeal of

The Dark and Light of Angel Moreno’s 7th One Man Art Exhibit.

A celebration of animals, flowers and fish, captivates the first painting exhibit in the newly open Dark And Light Art Gallery in Don Alejandro Roces Avenue in Quezon City, as they present the 7th one man Art exhibit of Angel Moreno last March 21, 2015.

Thirty pieces of his artworks mostly themed with his subject of coy fishes, sunflowers, roosters, horses, and tigers, are up on sale up to April 11, proceeds in each painting sold is given to Unilab Foundations, on their Play It Forward project as the beneficiary.



Moreno’s work is simply brilliance since he is painting in a very modern technique, not the usual art pieces you will see in some galleries, he is recreating the picture to come alive when you are looking at it, he simply called it embossed art that he admit a tough one to made due to layering of paints and colors. Mostly he paints by laying down in order for the paint to be perfectly assembled. His color combination using mixed media is something to look forward, a unique one I must say.

A bisaya in blood, Moreno aside from being a painter, he is also a multimedia artist who’s earlier talents includes being a film animator, and acoustic singer in different bars in Manila. Currently a resident of Quezon City, Moreno is an undergraduate of Fine Arts in University of the Philippines.


In our interview, he emphasize that most of his works is where his heart and mind, it can be notice through the evolution of colors he uses in many years, from monochrome  and now to a 3D portrait.
