“We take pride in our Filipino music, and we are honored to do our part in further unlocking the potential of Asian music in the global music industry by partnering with 88rising to recreate the local music scene with some of the best rising talents,” the executive added.

Launching this month, Paradise Rising serves as a platform to establish a presence for Filipino artists in the West and globally through music distribution, music rights management, and artists development. 

To commemorate its launch, the label is releasing its first mixtape semilucent to digital retailers and streaming services on July 31. The initial project aims to reinforce the ethos of the label—bringing together a fusion of talented emerging Asian artists to the forefront through music.

Fans can expect more song releases, amplified by promotional events, exciting interviews, digital content, and music video exclusives.

“The Philippines and music go hand in hand, and there is such vibrancy in the way talented young artists are emerging, and such a massive audience in love with music. We want to support their voices, help them be heard, and bring music from the Philippines to a global audience.  This label partnership brings an unprecedented opportunity for Philippine artists to achieve even greater visibility and commercial success with their music,” said Sean Miyashiro, Founder, 88rising. 

With Paradise Rising, Globe and 88rising aim to discover the most promising of Filipino artists and develop a regular cadence of music releases on the label’s platform. It commits to cementing artists’ talent and creativity locally and aims to amplify them globally.
