Why Eskina Jones is the Next Cebuano Artist You Should Watch Out For

With a vibe that’s laidback and cool, all eyes are on Eskina Jones and his sound that takes us back to the past.  

Cebu is a melting pot of various talents. It’s evident in the fact that there are new faces recognized more frequently than before. Next week, one promising young artist is going to take on the city’s music scene. With a vibe that’s laidback and cool, all eyes are on Eskina Jones and his sound that takes us back to the past.  

Tell us about yourself.

The name’s Jones, Eskina Jones.

No but really, just call me Jom. I’m a music producer and Eskina Jones is my new side project. It’s my take on 80’s synth wave.

You’re launching your EP titled Interstellar next week. What’s it all about?

It’s a mix between a homage to the things I love about the 80’s and how I translate emotions into music. If your life was shot on a crappy VHS cam, Interstellar would be the soundtrack to that video.

What made you want to create music?

Well, I’ve been writing music ever since I was 16. It’s more of an outlet for me to vent out what I’m feeling. Marcelo, my other project, was more of trying to capture that cozy vibe you get when it’s raining. However with Eskina Jones, I’m trying to go for something else.

We’re insanely curious—why the name “Eskina Jones”? Is there a story behind that?

Originally I was going to name this project something super nerdy like “Voyager 9000”. I was binging on Isaac Asimov’s novels and it felt right. I realized that I wanted something a bit more relatable so I asked my friend Ron for advice. We came up with “Eskina Jones” and thought it would fit since it sounded like a name.

What should we expect from Eskina Jones?

Something different. I’d write it down but it would be better if you guys experienced it for yourselves. Drop by A Space Cebu this October 25 to hear me and a bunch of other talented individuals perform music. See you there!

Careless’ WAVY BABY Takes Over Sinulog

Careless’ first ever music festival, Wavy Baby, is bound to make the return of Sinulog one for the books.

Wavy Baby is a two-day music festival happening on January 13-14, 2023 at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu with a lineup of over 20 artists recognized both locally and internationally.

Wavy Baby will feature international performers Pink Sweat$, Bambam, Sunmi, The Rose, Bag Raiders, Manila Grey, and Yultron. All artists signed under Careless namely, James Reid, Massiah, Jolianne, Lesha, August Wahh, Issa, SOS, Destiny Rogers, and A-Team will also be performing. Other Filipino acts include Ben & Ben, December Avenue, Urbandub, Franco, Denise Julia, and more. The festival will also feature local Cebuano acts such as Cookie$, The Sundown, Mandaue Nights, Three Legged Men, and Wonggoys.

Careless’ CEO, Jeffrey Oh, says “We’re really excited to do Wavy Baby in Sinulog because it’s the biggest and most historic festival in the Philippines. We want to build a festival that brings the best of the Philippines and the world together to meet and celebrate life and culture, which is what Sinulog is all about. We call it Wavy Baby because we want a wavy lifestyle and a wavy mindset. It also pays homage to Sinulog because the Sinulog symbols are water and the baby Jesus so it’s also a nod to that as well. We’re excited to be part of the Cebu family and build something special that hopefully we can repeat year after year.”

The festival itself will be held at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu. There will be an Artist Lounge, VVIP Lounge, a VIP Area in front of the stage, Cocktail Pods, Sponsor’s Hives, and Market Pod.

The Cocktail Pod serves as an area for anyone to purchase drinks at the venue while the Market Pod is designated for food and other merchandise that will be sold. The Sponsor’s Hive will be where Wavy Baby’s brand partners will have different booths that festival goers can visit.

Regular Tickets are priced at Php 8,510 for VIP and Php 4,260 for General Admission. One-day Passes are also now available at Php 5,540 for VIP and Php 2770 for General Admission.
