Kean, known by many as his band's front man and for his TV and big screen acting roles, willingly goes behind the scenes to take on his directorial debut for the music video of the song "Darating."
Kean, being new to the directing world, was generously supported and assisted by seasoned director Jay Pacena (director of music videos such as Gloc-9's Elmer, Ney's Ligaw, etc.), the talented Jewels Sison (director of photography) and each of his very hard-working crew in every step of the way. When asked about his directing experience, Kean says, "I couldn't have done it without the full support of the whole team. They believed in my direction, that I can lead everything to the right path. It's a perfect first time!"
The song features several acts: the comeback of Ney Dimaculangan, one of the popular voices in the music industry and former 6cyclemind vocalist; the first time collaboration of Ney with Dello, one of the hottest rappers in the country with his current hit "Sana Di Na Lang," and the introduction of Kleggy Abaya, the artist-to-watch-out-for in 2013 with his band Banda ni Kleggy.
"Darating" is the newest project of The Big Band Syndicate (BBS), composed of Darwin Hernandez (Soupstar Entertainment) and Rye Sarmiento (6cyclemind).
Sure to be another Pinoy anthem, the song brings together the combination of a powerful melodic chorus and the popular flip-top culture. The song is arranged by award-winning producer Jonathan Ong and was recorded in Sonic State studios.
