K-pop Indie Gem: Rheehab

While artists like Dean and Crush are at the frontline of the RB music scene in South Korea, Rheehab is but one of the growing pool of artists dedicated to the genre. Producing music that blurs the lines between hip hop and RB, Rheehab’s tracks are laidback and soothing. Rheehab has gained a fair number of followers of his music online, though he remains distant from the public spotlight.

Rheehab’s recent tracks which he released on Soundcloud only a few days ago are characteristically groovy, allowing the listener to sink into a tender relaxation of the tunes. “ohohoh” is a track that uses a familiar echoing beat mix, calling to mind harder hitting hip hop tracks. However, Rheehab manages to soften the melody such that he conveys a sensuality, differentiating his music from those of his predecessors. Listeners are sucked into a whirling soundscape of slow-paced and alluring grooves.
