BACK2MONO is a series of music-focused pop-up events that has been running in Manila since 2017. The concept aims to provide not just party music, but a platform for artists to share their music and stories, as well as to connect circles and generations.


After two successful events, BACK2MONO returns with a new concept, LEFTFIELD, for a colorful night of multi-genre DJ sets, ranging from house to teckno, disco, oogie, funk, soul, Balearic, and more.

This special edition featured performances by three special guest artists: Endy Chen (Groove Bunny Records, China), AZ (Revelation Time, Osaka), and Caliph8 (Manila). They’re joined by Back2Mono resident DJs Toti Dalmacion, Hiro Kaneko, Michael Rattinger, Richard Legaspi, Mulan, Bruder, and Shigeki Fukuda. This event was held in 20:20 in Makati City, supported by Engkanto Brewery.
