Elements Music Camp is back!

Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Aspiring musicians rejoice! Elements Music Camp has returned with a renewed thrust in cultivating a music culture prepped for an international audience.

Elements Music Camp has been known to hone talents under the tutelage and direction of icons in the music scene like Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Joey Ayala, and Gary Granada to name a few.

Early campers include Bullet Dumas, Kat Agarrado, Hans Dimayuga, Enrique De Dios, Nicole Asensio, Thyro & Yumi, Jensen Gomez, Ramiru Mataro, Zsaris, Reese Lansangan, and Clara Benin.

Elements Music Camp is the brainchild of Twinky Lagdameo, Mr. Ryan Cayabyab, and Julio Sy in 2010. This year, Elements Music Camp partners with Globe LIVE to prepare local talents for a global stage, bringing in international record producers namely, Bernard “Harv” Harvey, who’s produced tracks for Justin Bieber; Bassie Blue Hamilton, who’s also worked with Usher, Justin Bieber and also Bruno Mars; Steve Lillywhite who’s produced for U2 and Dave Matthews Band; Def Jam Records SVP Head of A&R Ernest Clark, who has produced for Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, and also Justin Bieber; and EDM pioneer Ferry Corsten, who has worked with Benny Benassi, DJ Tiesto, and Armin van Buuren.

“The Philippines is full of musical talents and we should discover and prepare them globally. The world has become smaller because of the Internet. Music distribution has evolved from record bars to online music streaming distribution such as Spotify, YouTube among others and this is where Globe comes in,” Joe Caliro, Globe Senior Advisor for Creative Marketing & Multimedia Businesses, disclosed.

With Globe at the helm and co-presented with FrontRow, the artists and producers will get leverage through Globe’s partner platforms such as Spotify, Facebook, and YouTube, so more people can experience the content and the music created through the camp.

“We want to create the venue for talented local musical artists to showcase their craft, assist them, nurture and curate their creative products, and help them bring their music out to the world and hopefully, discover the next great, big thing in Original Pilipino Music,” Caliro explained.

“We’re excited to leverage our association with Spotify for Elements. As the biggest ad-supported music streaming service in the Philippines, Spotify is one of the best platforms for new artists to be discovered and showcase the 10 songs that will be produced at the camp.”

To kick-off the celebrations, there will be a reunion concert featuring past mentors and campers such as Ben & Ben, Bullet Dumas, Ebe Dancel, Joey Ayala, Nyoy Volante, and many more, on July 21, 2018, at the UP Theater.
