Terno Recordings

The most forward thinking independent music label in the Philippines.

Terna Recordings  is the brainchild of Toti Dalmacion, a Manila-based DJ, vinyl collector, musician, and impresario who has evolved to be one of the most progressive figureheads of the scene. A preacher of the gospel of taste, he has exposed Metro Manilans  to a wide range of musical styles ranging from both indiepop and rock to modern dance to bossa and everything in between. Among the acts he has brought in include Juan Atkins, Alec Empire,, Marques Wyatt, Derrick May, jazzanova, DJ Q-Bert, Derrick Carter, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Ken Ishii, Jason Bentley, Swayzak, Stacey Pullen, Doc Martin, josh Wink, Fantastic Plastic Machine, The Lotus Eaters, D' Sound, China Crisis, just to name a few. He definitely doesn't live in a hut. And he has e-mail.

Terna Records is determined to bring to the world some of the finest new music with a Filipino twist: indiepop/rock, jazz, house, techno, and everything in between. Yes, some of us actually know these things.
