 KZ, Bugoy, GIBBS, and more artists join the Manila-based label’s growing fam


ABS-CBN’s international-forward music label Tarsier Records builds up its artist roster by introducing new acts in its family through the campaign “Class of 2021.”


The lineup announcement for 2021 comes as the ABS-CBN Music label evolves from being the home of electronic dance music or EDM that catered to millennial-gen Z listeners in its first cycle to having a catalog shaped by its artists’ growth, the music they create, and the sound of today.


“We’ve definitely widened our view on the kind of music we support which I think is a good thing. All that really matters is does it have a vibe and do we think it will connect with our audiences, wherever they may be,” shared founder and label head of Tarsier Records Chris Lopez aka Moophs.


Reaffirming their ties with Tarsier Records and leading its vibrant, welcoming, and emerging “Class of 2021” are top Filipino talent and original signees such as Inigo Pascual, Kiana V, Sam Concepcion, Markus, Moophs, Subzylla, Edana, Kyler, YUZON, and Xela.


Other familiar names who will further shape the label this year are OPM greats KZ Tandingan and Bugoy Drilon, Chi and Gabs Gibbs of the musical duo GIBBS, former Boyband PH member Russell Reyes, TikTok viral content creator-singer-songwriter Zion Aguirre, and singer-songwriters SAB and Miguel Odron.


Meanwhile, some of the label’s best up-and coming acts to watch out for are rapper Dotty (f.k.a. marc), R&B artists daze, Annette, and Gessie, Spotify Radar 2021 folk-gospel-neo-soul act allen&elle, Singapore-based Filipino artists Tonie Enriquez and Dave Anounuevo, esteemed Asian DJ-producers Arthur Tan and Kaiyo, indie artist Recio, and youngest of the batch Ocean Crosby, a teenage guitar whiz & singer-songwriter.


Since its launch in 2017, Tarsier Records has been making milestones in the export of Filipino talent in the world stage and the import of international music Filipino audiences—a feat which label head Moophs is proud of and hopes to continue in the future.


“If there’s anything I’m proud of with our brand, it’s the quality. We don’t release bad music, it’s just not something we do, and we release a lot of music, so I hope that’s perceptible to people,” he said.


“My hope for the label is to continue to grow as a portal for the import and export of good music; a place where artists and fans from anywhere in the world can gather, collaborate, exchange ideas and help tell our collective story. I couldn’t be more excited for what’s ahead,” he added.
