nomad massive
NOMAD Massive is the Philippines’ Drum & Bass (dnb) music circuit, touching base with elements of Liquidfunk, Neurofunk, Hard-step, Dubstep, Jungle, Breaks, Garage, and UK Underground forms.

In-house DJ’s, artists, and producers who had all been involved in the music scene individually finally came together in October of 2006 to resolve a shared frustration with the lack of venues that featured the distinct sound they were all attuned to. The mission was to expand musical horizons with other forms that, for the Filipino masses at least, remain unheard of, overlooked, or undermined.

BAUHAUS CLOUD
 
If there’s one thing Manila-based musician Bauhaus Cloud (aka Noel “Chox” Queja) is not, it’s boring. What he does is create soundtrack music for films that have yet to be made — taking orchestral samples and chopping them alongside jungle beats, or noodling with a piano track till it transforms into a doorbell, or slicing up a melodic sample until the micro-bits emit white noise.
It sounds like he’s overplayed his frayed copies of Goldie’s Saturnz Return and Bjork’s Vespertine till he can hear them in his sleep. Then he watches the Matrix trilogy for the 277th time to study the musical cues and see what he can sample from there.
You can find his tracks here: Bauhaus Cloud on soundcloud

FEEN
FEEN has a sound that encourage very different perceptions of the  environment in which it was created - the synths’ lightness of touch  combined with an aura of rhythmic space. Incorporating elements of   rock, electronica drum & bass and ambient, FEEN songs are conceived  and performed live.
Founded by songwriter Juno Limjap and  producers: Myke Madriaga (Former member of Feen) along  with Paul Pajo and Ado Ortiz (Flipperbaby) in September 2008. Hence,  Juno felt the pull of strong artistic rapport with Kishore Murphy  Ramnani in 1999 – and only began working together in January 2009, it is  at that time when Kishore became part of the group. In November 2008,  FEEN started recording under Road Runner Productions, focusing on  electronica sub-genres that emphasized on faith, human reaction,  inspiration, and purpose. The album was finished and mastered in  Creative Portal Studios - where Sound Design creator Ronald ‘Deax’ De  Asis spearheaded. A Marriage of Rock and Electronica:  Drawing inspiration from D&B acts and also moody modern rock artists  : “Tapestry” offered a rough draft of Feen’s modus operandi. On “Hating  Gabi,” according to critiques would be the album’s biggest single, Juno  demonstrated her skill at marrying a goth rant [inherited from  co-writer Kessenth Cheng] to Kishore’s engaging beat-driven track.

XOMBIE
Wearing the badge of “rock” Loud and proud. A horror show of electronic dance, metal and funk. The latest addition to the Nomad Massive roster.
Originally a radio DJ, for the underground (Pirate) station Rock Radio Alabang. Recognized as a rock advocate in the local music scene.
Early 2008, he began playing for Cuisine: Happy Mondays, alongside notable DJs in the club scene. This sparked the birth of (the now debunked) Zombie-on-Fire DJ suit and events (32nd strett & Alchemy RoXXX). He started playing regularly for Nomad Technology during their Zenses & Padrino (Makati) nights 2010, and was absorbed to the Nomad Massive roster in 2011.
Hard headed and relentless in the battle against Nomad veteran Liquid A.

F-ZERO
"I’m an aspiring music producer/electronic musician who just wants to experiment with music by fusing different musical styles"
Myke started to play with loops and samples in 2003 as new found hobby, after entering remixing contests in acidplanet.com.  Myke decided to do original stuff and so he created Evo Evolver, A  musical project that concentrates on musical experimentation. The tunes  created from that project were a fusion of his musical preferences  like rock, pop, hip-hop and electronica, and they sounded gritty and  dark. After awhile, he decided to push his musical experimentation  further, so he looked for singers to collaborate with, and in  2006 Evo Evolver focused on doing break beats, Drum and Bass that really made him a better musician, producer and artist. 2010, the Evo  Evolver project changed its name to F-Zer0.
