The goal is to offer fresh and young talents that will deliver a surprising and refreshing treat to the listeners with their vocal talents when they take on these original songs. We want to give our listeners an alternative to their usual playlists. We put great value and place high importance on the collaborative nature of working with our artists because we believe that creating something great is achieved together, with one goal in mind. And that is to produce new, beautiful, fresh, and original music. With teamwork, the dream works.”
Gealogo believes in the value of collaboration when it comes to making fresh sounds for the new generation, “We put high importance in our collaborative work with our artists because we believe that creating something great is achieved by working closely together, with one goal in mind and that is to produce new, beautiful, fresh and original music.”
Meanwhile, Gacho says GMA Playlist aims to contribute quality songs to the industry, “The GMA Playlist sub-label was born out of our passion to contribute to the OPM industry. It is also a venue for us to release original songs and have them performed by our untapped singers of the network. We also give our listeners an alternative to their usual playlists.”
