Filipino musician Blaster Silonga shared a Tagalog version of his solo single “Disko Forever”.
The IV Of Spades guitarist released the new version on Friday October 29th via Island Records Philippines.
Combining elements of bedroom electronica and funk, ‘Disko Forever’ was initially released, sung entirely in Japanese, in late September as Silonga’s debut solo album under the mononym Blaster.

Silonga was backed by band The Celestial Klowns – guitarist Dan Martel Tañedo, bassist Dave Jazz Silonga and drummer Max Cinco – in the retro video for the Japanese version of “Disko Forever”, performed by raliug. A new music video for ‘Disko Forever’ will also be released on the night of Wednesday, November 8.
According to a press release, besides ‘Disko Forever’, Silonga has recorded demos for other upcoming solo releases, including a song called ‘Nararamdaman’.
Silonga, 21, who draws inspiration from genres such as art rock, krautrock and Japanese urban pop, also cited Radiohead and David Bowie as experimental influences.
‘Disko Forever’ makes Silonga the second member of IV Of Spades to release solo material. In April, Zild Benitez released his second album ‘Huminga’.
IV Of Spades – which also includes drummer Badjao De Castro – has announced that they will take a hiatus in August 2020.
