The Scene Around: Locked Down Night

10/11/2016 05:42:39 PM

It was a rainy Thursday night, and I just came off from a team meeting at The Collective. While it;s a bit bearable to travel on my way home, I decided to take a walk and check out what's happening at one of the best nightout spots in Makati City (aside from my personal agendas).

So, I managed to catch a bit of Locked Down night at SaGuijo, and Hey Boy Hey Girl just wrapped up its set. And it's obvious that I have missed a lot of happenings during then. But it didn't really matter much as I got hooked up to at least, the remaining musician scheduled to play for the gig.

And hearing Toni B for the first time ever get me bewildered – at least for like 30 minutes or so. Of all the Locked Down artists I have ever encounter in the gigs scene, I have yet to hear her music.

That being said, I wasn't surprised anymore why she is one of the notable names in Jigger Divina's talent arm. The soloist could make well in her keyboards and synthesizers; what more in the full band set-up that includes another balladeer Paolo Mallari by then?

Capping the evening with The Diegos – spinning records in vinyl – may look old fashioned considering the trend of how DJs play theirs; but somewhat, it was rejuvenating to see them do so. Not many appreciated vinyl and turntable phonographs as a material and equipment in doing live mixes.

That being said, the 12-year old Locked Down Entertainment proved why they are one of the most-established groups in the scene; from hip-hop they have gone to a variety of notable rockers in different genres.
