Making milestones

Since its launch in 2017, Tarsier Records has started to make milestones in the export of Filipino talents on the world stage. Of course, this would include the import of international music to Filipino audiences. This would be a feat that labels head Moophs feels proud of and hopes to continue in their future. He said:

“If there’s anything I’m proud of with our brand, it’s the quality. We don’t release bad music, it’s just not something we do, and we release a lot of music, so I hope that’s perceptible to people.”

“My hope for the label is to continue to grow as a portal for the import and export of good music; a place where artists and fans from anywhere in the world can gather, collaborate, exchange ideas and help tell our collective story. I couldn’t be more excited for what’s ahead.”
