AfterParty spent another weekend up north for the second leg of Fandom Mania presents What’s Your Cool! The country’s best DJs and MCs hit up SM Center Valenzuela, SM City Olongapo, then SM City Cabanatuan and brought the house down with banging tunes and energy that lasted all night long.
What Went Down
College DJ winner SP Espinosa joined Valenzuela as the opening act, followed by fellow winner DJ Mayel Sancho. Her natural badass girl power and training from the industry’s best mentors made her a name to watch out for. Emoji Records curator and producer BSTRDPRNCE continued to get the crowd moving with his unconventional electronic tracks and opened up the crowd to a new fusion of music. Road to Ultra: Philippines veteran DJ Knoxville went ham on the crowd, pumping them up for DJ X-Factor and MC Victor Pring. The party was unfortunately cut short due to the severe weather conditions but if water didn’t damage equipment, we would’ve gone all night.
What’s Your Cool took over SM City Olongapo’s three-day long Mardi Gras event, the crowd stretching as far as the eye could see. DJs Shintaro and JV Naguit kicked off Saturday night alongside MC Derf, proceeded by Evan Evangelista. Kat DJ’s zestful set breathed a new air to the crowd as they began to unravel down to their party instincts. DJ X-Factor and MC Victor Pring exploded on the stage like fireballs and DJs Funk Avy, David Ardiente, and Rico Arce kept the crowd pumping. Just when they thought it was over, the last three DJs went in for a back-to-back-to-back special to close up the Mardi Gras festivities.
Triple threat DJ trio Banghous3 kept SM City Cabanatuan’s Sunday well-lit, literally and figuritavely. DJ Therese Garcia proudly displayed her signature electro and house mixes with a big smile on her face, showing us the same charisma she exudes as a DJ on the airwaves. The crowd got loud with DJ X-Factor and MC Victor Pring jumping behind the decks, superseded by “The Best in the Business” DJ Ace Ramos and MC Pao. DJ Jet Boado couldn’t show Valenzuela what he was made of thanks to the heavy rain, but he came back even stronger to elongate the party in Cabanatuan until the early hours of Monday.
