Paradise Rising finds new home in KROMA Entertainment

Published

on

Paradise Rising, a global platform that brings rising Filipino talents to the forefront of local and international youth culture, has found a new home in KROMA Entertainment.

 

It is now home in the music division of KROMA, a tradigital entertainment company passionate about creators, talent, content, and technology.  KROMA is backed by leading digital solutions platform Globe.

 

The music label, a Filipino sister label of Asian-American media company 88rising, has been instrumental in putting the Philippines on the global music map amid the pandemic. It expands the presence of artists of Filipino descent through artist development, music distribution, and music rights management.

“Only two years since its launch, Paradise Rising has been true to its ambition of providing a platform for Filipino talent to be recognized on the global music stage. Now the names Ylona Garcia and Guapdad 4000 can be heard offshore, with respectable brands trusting them and millions of fans worldwide listening. This is just the beginning. 2022 will see a more powerful and border-breaking music experience,” said Denise Seva, Head of LiveMNL and Music at KROMA.

 

Filipino-American hip hop sensation Guapdad 4000 was the first artist signed by the young label. Guapdad 4000 is also the first Paradise Rising artist to release a full-length project through the 1176 album, in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning Filipino-American producer !LLMIND.

Guapdad 4000 is hailed for his talent, creativity, and versatility. He already has a Grammy nomination, a number of viral singles, and tours.

On the other hand, Filipino-Australian singer-actress Ylona Garcia released her debut single “All That” with Paradise Rising in March 2021, followed by “Don’t Go Changing” in September.

 

Her newest single, “Entertain Me,” is the theme song for Neon, the new Filipino agent in Valorant, the popular first-person shooter game of Riot Games.  It is her biggest release so far, with 14 million streams on Spotify and 4 million views on YouTube.

 

Ylona also performed at the Head in The Clouds 3 Festival, an annual music festival organized by 88rising, as she continues to carve a name for herself internationally.

Paradise Rising was launched in 2020 with the debut mixtape “semilucent,” featuring five local artists Kiana Valenciano, Massiah, Jason Dhakal, Fern., and Leila Alcasid, who specialize in different music genres.

 

It returned with a sophomore five-track EP “semilucent 2” in 2021, with a brand-new roster of talented artists. They are Filipino-Canadian R&B duo MANILA GREY, Filipino R&B singers Steven Peregrina and daze, rapper Curtismith, and Filipino-American artist Christian Alexander.  The EP also includes a collaboration between Filipino-American producer Manila Killa and Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna.

Paradise Rising is determined to continue putting the spotlight on Filipino music and artists to establish them in the West and throughout the world.

KROMA Sets New Virtual Event Standard with xR Disguise Technology

Published

on

KROMA Entertainment, a company backed by the Globe Group, recently gave media and viewers a taste of its “tradigital” brand of entertainment when it launched on April 6 with a visual bang.

 

KROMA introduced its entertainment brand through an extended reality (xR) disguise event rarely seen in the Philippines, bringing a magical and immersive experience for its online audience by combining the physical and virtual worlds.

 

Far from the usual green screen execution, xR disguise is a more dynamic and intense production. It allowed KROMA officials to interact smoothly with complex virtual effects and real-time computer graphics, resulting in more natural shots.

The xR disguise platform creates exciting live visual experiences based on augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR).   It was used by many world-class acts, such as the globally popular boy band BTS in its “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour, and international singer Katy Perry in one of her American Idol performances.

 

KROMA used the same technology in its launch, where it introduced its various brands across the entertainment spectrum, straddling traditional and digital media.

 

For spectacular xR disguise productions similar to what the KROMA launch showcased, LiveMNL, KROMA’s full-service activation brand, is all set to take on the challenge. Denise Seva, Head of LiveMNL and Music, said they continue to evolve by integrating the live component and product and tech innovations in the digital space.

“We at LiveMNL are always on the lookout for something fresh and innovative in delivering our events – be it ours or for our clients. I’ve seen a lot of comments that people were very impressed and happy with what we produce, so expect more of that coming from LiveMNL,” Seva said at the launch.

Meanwhile, KROMA CEO Ian Monsod said the launch production is not the sole proof that shows how KROMA is going beyond content to further enrich the audience experience.

 

By being part of the Globe Group’s telecommunications and technology ecosystem, KROMA can connect consumers to related interests and passion points, communities, brands, websites, apps, and services essential to their daily lives.

“We are a diverse team of passionate individuals who bring together varying perspectives and points of view to create something engaging, exciting, and trailblazing for the Filipino audience. We do this across our ecosystem of brands, creators, content, and experiences.  We have something for everyone’s entertainment,” Monsod said.

 

KROMA, a company backed by the 917Ventures Retirement Fund, operates LiveMNL, UPSTREAM, ANIMA, Secret Menu, Paradise Rising, NYMA, Wonder.PH, and FreebieMNL.  It also partnered with ABS-CBN and 917Ventures on the country’s first fully multi-screen interactive free TV channel called PIE.

 

KROMA is one with the Globe group in its commitment to innovation, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development.
