K-Pop Beyond The Charts is a weekly review column highlighting Korea's fashionable day musical innovators who haven't begunto discover mainstream success.
With pop acts throwing an expanding number of and more musical idioms into the similar song on the lookout for the "new sound," it is necessaryto endure in mind the explosive effectsthat will effect from just two well-paired elements.
The leadoff unmarried for the 31-year-old South Korean vocalist Bumkey's new album "U-Turn," released on Wednesday, "backindadayz" featuring Sanchez of the hip-hop staff Phantom (who also is goingbeneath the call Fassnakuh), Dok2, dh-style and Microdot proves how toughthis idea dismiss be.
"backindadayz" takes "Great Gatsby"-era swing and the seminal '80s rap sound from the days when acts like Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy and Eric B. Rakim became the turntable into an device and a weaponized force for suretrade to paperworkanything new, unique and electrifying.
Bumkey also stacked the deck via adding any such powerful gang of 4 guest MCs, everyrelaxedample in his own skin to supplya utterly unique contribution to the track. The result'severy other great Korean hip-hop track with a mass of guest stars, in the culture of Epik High's "Born Hater" featuring Beenzino, Verbal Jint, B.I, Mino and Bobby or my pick out for perfect Korean rap song of 2015, "Sold Out" featuring Zion.T, Loco and also adding Epik High's Tablo.
The handiestdoabledrawback of "backindadayz" for Bumkey anyway, is the reality the vocalist released the track video two weeks ago probablyso that you can hype "U-Turn." This hyped-up celebration track may no longer bethe maximum productive way to hype a 12-song album of most bedroom ballads and slow jamz. Yet hey, we're going to let the selling gurus concern about that one.
Unless you could be on Emblem New Music's listing label PR payroll, just crank up the volume on "backindadayz" and sit down back and reminisce, or dance.
