Further building out an immersive sonic world, gold-certified pop phenom  AJ Mitchell  has officially released a new single entitled “ STOP .” The song is the next chapter to be unveiled from his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Skyview , due out this year and executive produced by Mike Dean.  The track pairs a thumping bass line and flurry of funk guitar with a showstopping vocal performance. He delivers charismatic verses before igniting the instantly unshakable hook, “I don’t wanna stop, baby it’s our time . ” “STOP” continues the journey that was set in “ CAMERAS ON ,” released late last Month. The conceptual lyric video shared today picks up where “ CAMERAS ON ” left off. While “ CAMERAS ON ” depicts the story of AJ dealing with the darker sides of fame and his previous experiences with the content collective Team 10, the new lyric video finds him walking away from the cameras to the stage, depicting his passion and dedication to the music and what truly matters.  

From the Buwan and back, to the war and to love.

A new Filipino musical is about to unleash via a newly formed theatre company that will hit us with their brand new style of theatre presentation. That’s one of the aims of Black Box Productions that will revisit their “Mula Sa Buwan” production this December at Irwin Theater in Ateneo De Manila University.

Based on the play Cyrano De Bergerac from French poet Edmond Rostand, “Mula Sa Buwan” will showcase sweet and bittersweet young love during post war era of Manila.  Patrick Valera conceptualized the play along with William Elvin Manzano which was first performed in 2010 at the University of Asia and the Pacific under Dulaang Rock Opera Company.

Valera admits during its launching that this was just an introduction for its grand restaging early 2017. Thus it will only have a limited run from Dec 2, 3 and 4. Though he guaranteed that it will be as majestic as it will be by 2017.

The music and lyrics are remarkable and the pool of artists included is handpicked by Valera based on their past performances. Thespian Nicco Manalo is returning as Cyrano and also co-directing this early Christmas offering.

Joining the cast are Boo Gabunada, the alternate of Nicco as Cyrano and KL Dizon, who was outstanding as Urduja in Manhid, as the beautiful maiden Roxanne. Fred Lo and Edward Benosa will share the role as Christian.

Other members of the cast are Jon Abella, Jasmine Balunes, Gel Basa, Matthew Chang, Nico Dans, Harly Daria, MC Dela Cruz, Michael Fernandez, Francelle Fetalvero, Rhenz Gabalonzo, Patrick Libao, Arielle Magno, Victoria Mina, Ralph Oliva, Gerhard Pagunsan and Ronah Rostata.

Technical Team members are TJ Ramos for Musical Direction, Dana Marquez for Musical Arrangement, Ohm David for Set design, Meliton Roxas Jr for Lighting Design, Katherine Sabate for Dramaturgy and JM Cabling for Choreography.
