Sugarfree drops new song ‘Nagkita Muli’ on digital platforms

No grand launch or crowded listening parties. Just a new song from one of the popular Filipino bands Sugarfree whose sound endeared OPM lovers for many years. The new Sugarfree returns as a duo with Kaka Quisumbing (drums) and Jal Taguibao (vocals/ bass). After nine years, minus fellow members Ebe Dancel and Mitch Singson, Sugarfree is back with a new tune called “Nagkita Muli” released under Glass Onion Entertainment. “Dear Friends. Sugarfree is back with our newest single, ‘Nagkita Muli.’ This was just premiered tonight exclusively at Jam 88.3 FM!,” says Sugarfree made the announcement on Facebook when their new song debuted on February 25. Eight months later, “Nagkita Muli” will be streamed on audio streaming and media services providers. Their fans are simply ecstatic about their comeback in the music scene. Some of the comments: “Long wait is over!” “Love it” “100% support! Sugarfree is Sugarfree!” “Missing both these guys!” “Sooo glad to see this. I just hope people from the scene would just let them be. They’re just making music and clearly not harming anyone or anyone else’s legacy for that matter.” On Oct. 9, the group posted on Facebook: “And now we are here and meet again. Wounds heal and all pain.” Kaka Quisumbing (left) and Jal Taguibao. “Na-miss lang namin talaga ang isa’t isa sa pag-gawa ng kanta. Ang tagal din namin nawala sa music scene. So nung nagkita kami, sabi namin gawa uli kami ng songs,” says Taguibao, who is also a professor in the Department of Political Science, College of Social Sciences and Philosophy at the University of the Philippines Diliman. “Ganun lang ka-simple kung paano nabuo ang new song namin,” adds Quisumbing. During an exclusive online interview, the duo reminisced about memorable moments of their successful career. “Ang hindi talaga namin malilimutan yung mga ‘lagare’ gigs namin. Meaning pagkatapos ng isang gig sa isang lugar, pupunta kami ng probinsiya for the second gig and then lilipad naman uli sa isang province para tumugtog,” recalls Taguibao. Quisumbing says: “Minsan sobrang sikip ng venue na parang hindi na kami maka-hinga. Ang hindi ko makakalimutan siyempre yung beginnings namin. Noon kami pa ang nagbabayad sa venue para maka-kanta lang tapos wala pang sampu ang nakikinig sa’yo. I guess halos lahat dumaan sa mga ganung simula bago sumikat.” A.L. Henson, manager of the group, says nothing big is being planned yet now that Sugarfree is back. “Initially, ang plan lang muna is to release a song. Then konting gig siguro. Release uli ng song. Ganun lang muna,” says Henson when asked if the duo was going full-blast in 2021. The duo adds that it will keep its Sugarfree style of music, similar to the sound they have embraced in the past. “Sa ngayon naman wala kaming plan mag experiment ng new sound. Tama na sa amin yung tunog na kinalakihan ng aming mga fans. Wala kaming plano na gumawa ng mga obscure na sound,” says Taguibao. Formed in 1999, Sugarfree is known for their hits “Hari Ng Sablay,” Mariposa,” “Wag Ka Ng Umiyak,” “Makita Kang Muli,” Burnout,” etc. They disbanded in 2011. In February 2020, they came back as a duo. No plans yet for a Sugarfree reunion despite clamor from fans, Hanson says. But the band promises fans that they will continue to make music.

While doing that, we will continue exploring tunes to articulate through music, our personal histories and experiences,” the duo said......»»

PNB plans to establish digital bank subsidiary

The Philippine National Bank (PNB) is thinking of putting up a digital bank either as a subsidiary or stand-alone unit, according to its president and CEO Jose Arnulfo “Wick” Veloso. PNB president and CEO Jose Arnulfo “Wick” Veloso  “We’re discussing internally with the principals,” said Veloso. “They really want us to set up a digital bank” and a pure digital bank at that. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has drafted a circular for the establishment of digital banks in the country and the banking community is currently being consulted on this, including the proposal to impose a minimum capitalization of P1 billion for a digital banking license.  “Clearly, as we get to see more regulations (or) the regulatory body encouraging digital bank participation, we would like to also review that and probably put into a subsidiary or stand alone,” said Veloso. “I understand there is going to be different regulatory relief or ease of doing business for those that are going to set up purely digital banks. That is something that we are seriously reviewing.” Veloso, in a virtual press briefing on Friday, said that in the digital banking landscape as it is currently set up now, PNB is one of the leaders in the digital experience and since March when the lockdowns were implemented, the bank has been trying to convince clients to go digital.  “Others claim to be ahead of space in the digital world. I can proudly say that the only thing they are ahead of us are  — for one bank, the end-to-end account opening, and for another bank, it’s because of the end-to-end check deposit. But otherwise, there is no dfference with what they’re sharing with everyone else,” said Veloso. The bank has seen an increase of 18 percent in its digital and mobile transactions during the height of the pandemic lockdowns. As of end-September, they now have 696,000 users of their digital platforms, up 31 percent year-on-year.  “We want our customers to understand how they can easily manage their funds and transact by going online using our digital channels. We also want more people to learn about the products that are meant to fit all their needs (with digital banking experience),” said Veloso. Presently, PNB branches across the country are “reaching out to customers who have not yet registered with internet banking or mobile banking”. In the BSP proposed circular on digital banks, any existing banks applying to shift to digital banking are given three years to complete conversions including the closure of branches or branch lite units. The BSP said a digital bank will be confined to a digital platform and/or electronic channels “with minimal to no reliance” on physical touchpoints. It will not have a branch or branch-lite unit but it can offer offer financial products and services through cash agents and other delivery partners. However it will be required to keep a head office in the Philippines as its main point of contact and as a “central hub for receiving and resolving customer complaints.” There are three banks that are already applying to deliver digitized financial services but these applications are not digital bank applications but are applying under existing BSP banking classification, pending the digital banking regulation......»»
