HARMONIC TREND is considered as one of MANILA's LEGENDARY NEW WAVE MOBILES back in the 80s. It was formed by Blessed Elena Academy High School Classmates ALDRIN, OLIVER, JEFF, JOJO, and VIC wayback 1986. Well, this Pasay Dudes have contributed a lot in Manila's New Wave Scene back then and Aldrin recalls their first gig was at Oliver's house in Las Pinas wherein the title of the Party was "Cantonese Boy". Hmmmp!! Inspired by David Sylvian? Aldrin informed me that this party was a fund raising effort to buy themselves more equipments. WOW!! A great idea indeed!! Just for a 15bucks entrance you get to eat and drink all you can. Those were the days ha!! HARMONIC TREND then was tapped by WXB102 to be a part of some 102parties and spin their records. YUP!! That's the beginning of a great spinning experience for the guys who made a mark during those times. According to Aldrin, his most memorable 102 Party would be "SNEAK ATTACK Part Two". I have to agree with his choice because of the weird incident that happened on this great party. He He He!!
ALDRIN was kind enough to share some of HARMONIC TREND's Vintage photos:
I remember back in 1988 I made my own HouseMix Tape entitled Harmonic Trend. Hmmmp! One of the most famous Names in New Wave Mobiles!! Adrin is also an avid fan of THE CULT....you gotta see his great personal CULT Collection to be amaze. GALING!! Very
My favorite would be his DREAMTIME LP and CD. There was also a 102 Party entitled "DREAMTIME" and Harmonic Trend was also included on that party's Mobile Line-up.
