PACQUIAO- Greatest Fighter of the era!!

It's a joyful day and a splendid CHRISTMAS SEASON for Filipinos because the one and only MANNY "PACMAN" PACQUIAO also known here in the Philippines as "Pambansang Kamao" did it again by beating Miguel Angel Cotto of Puerto Rico via a 12th round TKO of their boxing match dubbed as "FIRE POWER" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend November 14, 2009. YUP!! It's a triumphant day indeed in the whole FILIPINO COMMUNITY!! CONGRATULATIONS KABAYAN MANNY PACQUIAO!! You made us PINOYS very proud indeed. The referee stopped the fight in the 55th second of the 12th and final round and PACMAN became the new Welterweight Champion of the World. Well, that was a good fight and it placed an exclamation point that our KABAYAN MANNY is really the Greatest Pound For Pound Boxer of the World. The entire nation was really praying hard that MANNY would win this fight and definitely the prayers were answered and of course MANNY did a great job doing his own thing on the ring smashing COTTO. Wheeew!! I just remembered that Shampoo Commercial of MANNY that emphasized on removing COTTO in the hair. He He He!! All have been said and done regarding the fight and so no need to elaborate on the specifics and let's just leave it to the boxing experts. One thing is certain "MANNY PACQUIAO is the GREATEST FIGHTER OF THE ERA" as his trainor FREDDIE ROACH have said on the post-fight conference. I made also two special blogposts on MANNY's victories over OSCAR DELA HOYA and RICKY HATTON before here on my little blog "The Doctor Is In" so just check it on the Label "SPORTS" if you havent read it yet. It's just sad that Z "The Dream"Gorres, another Filipino Champion who just won his bout recently against Luis Melendez, is in Critical Condition and is now in a Medically-Induced Coma. The whole FILIPINO community is praying for the recovery of Gorres. I guess with this PACMAN victory, a PACQUIAO- MAYWEATHER will be the real event come 2010 if it would push thru. Hmmmp!! That would definitely be another blockbuster since the crowd on the arena was chanting also "WE WANT FLOYD!!". After the fight, MANNY has humble words for himself which I greatly admire with this great Filipino Boxer. You made us all VERY PROUD TO BE FILIPINOS MANNY!! MABUHAY KA!! The Best Of The Greatest!!

Not really those so-called "Hard To Find" or "Rare Stuffs" but still good vibes music for your listening pleasure. So who are the Artists/Bands am I going to feature? I guess you have to visit again my blog for more. YUP!! I'm talking about "MORE and MORE and MORE". He He He!! Definitely, I personally value these compilations too. THANKS AGAIN guys!!

DJ Joven Wave Addiction Promo Mix

Two months ago, I asked DJ JOVEN of Mix Ministry if he can share again a NEW WAVE MIX here in my blog. I've intended it to be a sort of a PROMOTIONAL MIX for their "Mix Ministry Live Party" which they have organized on the First Week of October 2009 since according to fellow Mix Ministry DJ "workshy", DJ Joven will spin out the New Wave portion of that said party. But due to the typhoons that had hit the Philippines that time, their party was canceled and re-scheduled for further notice and I haven't also been active blogging back then due to some relief operations for our Kababayans. So finally, here's the Music Mix that I'm talking about. Well, better late than never guys. This is also my opportunity to greet DJ Joven a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and so I hope you guys will like this trip again down memory lane with some good vibes New Wave Mixes courtesy of the Birthday Boy himself.

DANCE TRAX is a Vinyl Record Compilation of some of DJ JON TUPAZ Mixes. YUP!! We have already featured DJ JON TUPAZ last September 21, 2009 that included an Archived New Wave Mix from this great Deejay here in my blog before. Here's "The Dr. Stirring Rhod Way" again of featuring the works of DJ JON TUPAZ, who is still considered as one of the hottest DJs here in MANILA. DANCE TRAX was conceptualized wayback 1992 by DJ JON TUPAZ, ROBBIE LOPEZ, and LAWRENCE CORDERO of SONOROUS MOBILE(Another Manila Legendary Mobile). Their sound engineer was MARK GOROSPE. This was released back in 1993 when HOUSE MUSIC was already being introduced in the music scene here in MANILA. As a Deejay, JON TUPAZ has a dream of releasing his works on Vinyl Record for other DJs to be played and used either locally or internationally. It just started as having a fun and light conversation between JON, ROBBIE and LAWRENCE which ended up being serious in thinking of producing and releasing a compilation Vinyl. The group's main ambition was to release their own Vinyl Compilation of Mixes back then . True enough their dream came into reality. A great motivation I may say!! Lawrence Cordero had to even asked permission from the original producers of the music for this vinyl release of compilation of remixes which were done by DJ JON TUPAZ himself. Well, according to JON,this was supposed to be in series format that would go from VOLUMES 1 to 4. Unfortunately, due to the incoming trend of Vestax and Denon CD Mixer wherein people were already favoring the CD format more than the VINYL, the others weren’t released anymore.

DANCE TRAX Vinyl Record

I uploaded the entire compilation for you to LISTEN and DOWNLOAD. Of course, THANKS to DJ JON TUPAZ for sharing the whole compilation here in my blog that always believe in ORIGINALITY. The Compilation Cover was inspired to be a caricature of the "LIFE OF A DJ" done LARRY ALCALA style. Btw, the late Lauro Zarate aka. Larry Alcala was a well-known illustrator and editorial cartoonist here in the PHILIPPINES who passed away back in 2002. According to JON, It was not that HITECH back then and he only used 1 6track Fostex audio mixer, 1 Technics mark, 2 Turntables, and 1 Numark 1975 digital sampler in making this classic mix during those times. This is just another trip down memory lane for you guys who loves music. I really love listening to ALL FOUR DJ JON TUPAZ Track Mixes from TOAD THE WET SPROCKETS, FORREST and two former MANILA visitors namely SYBIL and ANDREW GOLD. I hope you'll like it too the way I did. Great mix of musical genres that will travel you back to the 80s. So start DANCING to DANCE TRAX to remember those party days. Btw, you could also hear the "pops" on each music file which will remind you that this was indeed pure Vinyl music mix.

1) Never let her slip away – Andrew Gold (J2 remix)
2) All i want –Toad the Wet Sprocket (J2 remix)

1) When I’m good and ready- Sybil (J2 Remix)
2) Rock the Boat – Forrest (J2 Remix)

Personally, I would like to THANK both DJ JON and Miss PEACHY for helping me out in featuring this "DANCE TRAX" compilation here in my little blog "The Doctor Is In".
