What is VOTW?

Vandals On The Wall (VOTW) takes pride in providing curated coverage of the Philippine independent and mainstream music scene. Its passion towards shaping critical discussions that deal with local music—its trends and progressions in varied forms and sizes, has led to the site’s inevitable transformation: from its humble beginnings as a blog featuring music reviews and obscure homegrown records that you might haven’t even heard of, VOTW now operates as an online music magazine no longer served by traditional media structures and guidelines that dictate how local music should be produced, sold, distributed and consumed.

Factoring the changes in format, VOTW remains fervent as ever in reviving the public’s interest and passion for quality NEW music, trying to shed a different perspective on the way Filipinos appreciate and listen to music.

Using technology and the Internet, we want to spark a change in the way music is consumed in the world. Amplify.ph features Filipino music from a broad range of genres.
