Viber Party: One Vibe, One Nation, One Pride at #OneVibePH
Did that just happen in Manila? Seriously? Viber has pulled it off! A once-in-a-lifetime kind of party that has only been done once in our motherland (so far)! Viber Philippines had a crazy line up of performers that got everyone jumping and throwing their hands up for hours!
One Viber Philippines “One Nation One Pride” (or #OneVibePH for short) had performers like Apl De Ap, DJ Laidback Luke, DJs Funk Avy, Mars Miranda, and Motherbass and foreign acts HardRock and Infected Mushroom bring the house down to our hearts’ content.
Then there was piso-beer and piso-food!!!! One peso coin for one beer/snack, can you believe it? Viber had discounts on tickets and transportation fares, as well, and the best part? They got a total of 12 clubs to close down and unite to express their participation for this intense Independence Day salubong party – something that has never been done before on Filipino soil! The clubs that closed their doors to show mad love for #OneVibePH were Aracama, Dillingers, Haze, Hyve, Imperial, Prive, Prohibition, Republiq, Skye, Time, The Distillery and UrBn.
DJ Nix Damn P of MOTHER BASS
It is MOTHERBASSS with three “S”……………………………………………………!!!!! Good vibes right from the get-go!
MOTHERBASSS: DJ Nix Damn P and Macky Brillantes of Stick Figgas
MOTHERBASSS representing the Philippines at its best giving us a few old school hip hop tunes mixed with their unique sick beats and even a live drum performance by Macky Brillantes. They sent a whole lot of “SOBRANG GOOD VIBES” to the whole crowd! Even if you were in the parking lot getting your pre-game on (like we were hehe), just hearing the beats and the crowd’s noise would make you want to jump in and get it on!
If you missed the party, whether you’re Filipino or not, well… I feel sorry for you because every DJ that performed showed a lot of love. DJ Laidback Luke wore a shirt that said Kuya Luke and this guy was nominated for for the 2012 Best European DJ Award at the 27th Dance Music Awards okay! He even waved a Philippine flag to showcase One Pride, One Nation and got everyone extra pumped up!

INFECTED MUSHROOM: “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Eisen
Electronic dance music (EDM) mega-legends Infected Mushroom, best known as the sonic innovators of the “Psychedelic (Psy) Trance” genre, also brought their talent to the Philippines and gave us a night that will never be forgotten in support of #OneVibePH.
HARD ROCK SOFA : Alexander Shapovalov and Denis Chepikov
Hard Rock Sofa brought their style to the Philippines and enlightened us with their music bringing Electro House, Electronica, Progressive House and Rock, Funk, Disco, Hip-Hop, and Synthy Pop together for an original sound that hyped up the night crowd!
Apl De Ap of the Black Eyed Peas
What could you expect from Apl De Ap but greatness? Apl De Ap performed for his Filipino fans as the proud and humble Filipino that he always has been. Showing his skills as a DJ and as a live performer, Apl De Ap constantly brings pride to all of the Filipinos all over the world!
Apl De Ap of the Black Eyed Peas
What better way to end his performance than by singing the single hit song “BEBOT”, dedicated to all of the beautiful Filipino women all over the world? He got the crowd so involved with the song that the whole crowd went crazy and sang along with the chorus shouting on the top of their lungs the words “FILIPINO! FILIPINO! FILIPINO! FILIPINO”. Everyone probably knows the lyrics to this son, whether they are Pinoy or not.
I know that you probably know the lyrics and if you were then, then you, my friend, also sang along.
CHEERS to everyone who was part of this amazing event and to everyone who made it possible, especially to Nixon Sy for being so accommodating and awesome to the When in Manila team. “One Nation. One Pride!”
