MCA Music’s Newly Signed Boyband AM/FM Releases First Single “Playtime”

AM/FM, the newest signed artist of MCA Music Inc. (Universal Music Philippines), releases their first single entitled “Playtime” last June 1, 2018! The single was first debuted last May 26, 2017 at Darren Espanto’s sold out birthday concert, Darren Unstoppable, where the new boyband made their grand public debut as Darren’s front act.

The four members of AM/FM are Asi (Paul Asi Gatdula), Mike (Mike Angelo Escutin), Franz (Franz Dacanay), and Miguel (Juan Miguel Ruiz) who were all past contestants of The Voice Teens Philippines. Each of them may have come from different teams mentored by various coaches, but MCA Music Inc. saw that all four (4) of them together would make for a great singing and dancing boyband, hence the birth of AM/FM.

True enough, the boys did not disappoint and “Playtime” is living proof of their talent. Franz and Mike both composed the song, Asi drops a fire rap verse in it, and Miguel brings it home with heartfelt vocals. The group dynamic and individual strengths are highlighted in just this single alone. In fact, AM/FM takes it up a notch by adding dancing and acting in the mix for “Playtime” as seen in their soon-to-be released music video where VJ Sunny Kim of MYX Philippines plays their leading lady.

The taglish nakaka-LSS pop song, “Playtime”, makes for a great danceable and easily singable bop thanks to the catchy beats produced by Zelijah and repetitive chorus, but do not be fooled by its playfulness as the single is actually inspired by Franz’ personal heartbreak from a girl whom he claims played with his feelings. The single is full of quotable hugot lines starting from the intro, “Kung sino ang unang ma-fall siya ang talo. At umasa ako pero ‘di mo sinalo.” In fact, the song even contains a line from the text message the girl sent to Franz!

Despite its “mahugot” message, “Playtime” is one track that is sure to bring a smile to your face, a swing in your step, a slight sway to your hips, and a bop to your head no matter how many times you listen to it. Listen to “Playtime” here.
