Every Week, This Band Drops Videos From the Comfort of Their Own Homes
Flu, managed by Jasmine Curtis-Smith’s label record, just released the third episode of its #OnQuarantine series
In mid-2019, “over hotdogs,” as Jasmine Curtis-Smith likes to say, Funky Records was born. They’re a group of six, including Jasmine—Isabel Aguas, Nicole Uy, Jek Uy, Jeff Ortega, and John Uy round out the team.
Envisioned as a label that will provide artists creative freedom and opportunities while guiding them in paving a fruitful music career, Funky Records is home to up-and-coming bands and artists like Flu and Bea Lorenzo.
Flu, which started in January 2019, was named as such because it’s short, easy to remember, and “the groove is contagious.”
The band has released songs like “Is This The Love That I Need?”, “Fine Day,” “’93,” and “Get Down,” with Jasmine starring in their music videos.
They just released the third video from the series entitled, "Is This The Love That I Need?"

‘93 + Ain't Hidin' #FluOnQuarantine Ep. 01 Full video on our Facebook and YouTube pages It feels pretty odd to be a band named Flu in times like these. Nonetheless, we hope everyone is well, safe, and doing what they can to help whoever they can. Together with @thefunkyrecords we are in full support of @helpfromhomeph, an information hub that helps us at home support those who aren’t: the frontliners and families at risk in the Philippines. Please visit their website for more information on how to donate (www.helpfromhome.ph). Thank you! Special thanks to @beacampomanes for our new video intro 🥳
Bea, one of Funky Records’ artists, can also be heard on the newest campaign of the Department of Tourism, #WeHealAsOne.
The label record has also partnered with Help From Home, which aims to assist fans, friends, and family members who have intentions but aren’t sure where to go. “Individuals can choose from an umbrella of beneficiaries that are part of Help From Home,” says Jasmine.
