Coffee with a blend of Drama
Joy with a piece of sadness. Not all the time there is a happy ending. Sometimes, you just need to experience those downfalls in order to really see that sip of hope along the way. “To make it more Pinoy, Coffee was blended with a touch of Drama, Filipinos being fanatics of drama series”, as Vep says.

Message for Music Enthusiasts
Vep has left a message for those who are aspiring to have their voice be heard through a unique music scene:
“Don’t stop making original music, as a musician/artist, it’s more fulfilling to contribute to the growth of our local music scene and OPM. ” Mag-umpisa it istayuti ag maghandum it mabahaoe nga may pagpaubos. (Start small but dream big, taking humility with it).
