The reinvention of Erik Santos

Erik seems to love surprising his fans. Last week, his latest album “Champion Reborn” EP Part 1 was launched on Spotify, showcasing some well-crafted tracks. To many, it seems that this will be a huge step-up from his previous albums and from the classic Erik Santos we have loved for the longest time. But, in the recent bloggers conference, Erik assured his fans that he would still stick to his core as a balladeer, and that this is only part of his reinvention as an artist. As such, his new sound was graciously embraced by his fans and by all the spotifiers making his new single “Tandaan Mo ‘To” feat. Gloc 9 all over the charts.  And as I’m writing this, the song already reached 115,481 plays since it was launched last week. According to Erik, Tandaan Mo ‘To is his personal favorite because he was able to collaborate with one of the best rappers in our generation. It was composed by David Dimaguila, while, Gloc 9 himself actually wrote the rap lyrics, making this song extra special.

The level of passion and skills he exerted in creating this album was nothing short of amazing. He shares that this album was 1 year in the making. He always makes sure that before every recording session, he conditions his lungs by running on the treadmill for about 45 minutes, and memorizes the song by heart. In an exclusive listening to the album, he also shares songs both from his new sound to melodramatic songs so the fans won’t miss his classic sound. This album focuses on the nature of reality and it shows on how he emotionally filters and interprets each song differently.

You can now purchase “Champion Reborn” EP Part 1 on iTunes and watch out for the grand launch of the Music video for Tandaan Mo ‘To on MYX, Oct. 23,2015, 5pm.
