Which 90's Fil-Am hit single is getting a remake?
HOLLYWOOD – A Bay Area music producer is using the power of the internet to grab a new generation of Fil-Am music fans.
There are songs that seemed to stay with us forever. And for Bay Area music producer Anthony Garcia that song is "Do You Miss Me", popularized by Fil-Am singer Jocelyn Enriquez in the mid-90s. The catchy single was a Top 40 hit.
"I posted the 'Do You Miss Me' music video on my Facebook page and what's really interesting I got all these different responses not only from the older generations but from younger generations," said Garcia.
The positive reaction to his 'Do You Miss Me' post gave Garcia the inspiration to produce a remake. He then set out to do it with an electronic music track for the new generation.
With independent artist Michelle Martinez as the star, Garcia produced the single and music video working on a very limited budget. His team was able to produce something that's getting a lot of attention online.
"Ten years ago, people would not be able to produce this type of single and music video without a lot of money. But nowadays, you can actually produce a music video and a single with very little money," Garcia said.
Garcia is using the new business model for artists, going the independent business route and maximizing the power of the internet to market the song.
"What's really interesting is that it's getting attention like the original song both domestically and internationally," he added.
The single is currently available on iTunes.
