Music Speaks

I thought about writing this post in time for the upcoming gathering of friends gig on Saturday, June 27, at the Leprechaun Bar in Quezon City. If you've already seen that poster with the boombox, then you would know what I am talking about.


Before Trash Radio Manila, there was Music Speaks.

Music Speaks is Je's personal Multiply account. We both decided to open our own accounts two years ago, when I had to stay in Hong Kong for training. It was one of our many ways of keeping in touch. But unlike my account, which served as a depository of photographs, Je's account was a mini-collection of mixed playlists. Music Speaks would turn out to be a testing ground for Je's mixes, fresh out of Long Island Dub Studio, his other baby.

We eventually started Trash Radio Manila on January of 2008. I had gone back home to Manila, and Je was already open to the idea of keeping a music blog. Music Speaks became dormant (and so did my account), but it remains to be the prototype of Trash Radio Manila. You might want to check out Music Speaks and find out how TRM has evolved into what it is at present.

Of course, this evolution would not be possible without you guys. Thank you, as always, for allowing music to speak to you through Trash Radio Manila.


And yes, see you this Saturday, people.
