Kurt Fick launches synth pop single, ‘Di Na’

·1 min read

THE much-anticipated rebirth of the Vispop movement has ushered in a new sonic era for one of its pioneering artists: Kurt Fick released his latest single “Di Na” on July 8, across all music streaming platforms, with a music video to match on Facebook and YouTube, as well.

A hefty mix of ‘80s synthpop, Japanese citypop and modern funk, “Di Na” compares the experience of being stuck in a toxic relationship to battling an almost-incurable addiction. While written by his good friend Jerika Teodorico (“Labyu Langga,” “Ihatod Tika”), Kurt says he most certainly related to the song.

That’s why when I heard it, I immediately asked Jerika if I could record this,” shared Kurt.

“The title is also a statement,” said the former acoustic balladeer, as he weans himself from the barebones guitar-and-piano records to set off to bigger sounds, paying homage to his musical heroes Michael Jackson, Phil Collins and Bruno Mars.

Kurt’s new sound is made possible with the help of Vispop’s trusty team of arrangers and producers: Jude Gitamondoc, Anjelo Calinawan and Barry Villacarillo—known names in the Vispop community.

Add to that Kurt’s other trusty creative team, Fatboys Studios, which is also making a comeback with the song’s music video after a pandemic-induced hiatus, and audiences are generously served with sensory overload. Produced, directed and edited by Kurt himself, the “Di Na” official music video features the artist dancing to the track’s infectious beats, with choreography by Jaggy Gomez.

“Di Na” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and other major streaming platforms. Subscribe to the Fatboys Studios YouTube channel.
