Sugarfree released their debut album ‘Sa Wakas’ in 2003, leading to their rise as one of OPM’s most influential acts. The album would eventually spawn its own musical co-written by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan and Mariane Abuan and produced by Charissa Pammit in 2013, and led to the band releasing two more albums together in 2004’s ‘Dramachine’ and 2009’s ‘Mornings and Airports’ before eventually disbanding in 2011.
Dancel has gone on to become a successful solo artist, most recently releasing a wedding-themed mini-album titled ‘Habangbuhay’ in October 2022. Alongside the title track, the mini-album also includes Dancel’s Widescope Records debut ‘Manatili’ as well as the singles ‘Tanging Kailangan’ and ‘Huling Unang Sayaw’, which were both released last year.
The ‘Habangbuhay’ EP was also Dancel’s first project released by Widescope Entertainment since he signed with the label in May 2021, where he also works as its A&R manager.
