Artist of the Week | 샛별 Satbyeol

So while I was surfing the net I ran across this artist that I had never even heard of before. I’m not sure why she’s not more popular! I couldn’t find a lot of music for her on spotify or soundcloud… it’s disappointing really. She’s an amazing R&B/Pop artist and her name is 샛별 Satbyeol.

I can’t find a lot of information on her either except from her fan page on Facebook which says that she released her first solo album, <1+1+1> on December 14, 2011 and since then she’s worked with numerous well-known artists such as The Quiett, Yankie, Crucial Star and Crown J as well as many more.

But even though I can’t make a playlist for her, I can share a music video of hers! Check it out below!

니아 (Nieah) | [Artist of the Week]

I was soo shocked I did not have 니아 here already as Artist of the Week! I searched twice to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me!! But that just means she will be now.

If you haven’t heard of 니아 (Nieah) then you are in for a real treat today if you are fan of R&B. She’s one of those artists that fall into the Neo-R&B category (as I have dubbed it.) I call it Neo because it’s a classic R&B sound with a pop feel to it. But I love her music and I’m pretty sure I’ve had her song “No Rush” on repeat forever!

Check out the sample playlist below featuring her music!

KREAM (크림) | [Artist of the Week]

This week’s artist, 김도훈 (Kim Do Hun), is an incredible indie artist and I’m not really sure how he isn’t more well known! He debuted back in 2014 and was signed under his very own independent label KREAM Records. If I’m not mistaken he is still currently there. He has done collaborations with a couple of artists such as NUCK from SOULDIVE and Kim Park Chella.

If you haven’t heard his music before, check out his sample playlist below!

IMLAY | [Artist of the Week]

Raise your hand if you’re a fan of EDM!!

You can’t see it but my hand is waving wildly in the air. And I’m definitely jumping up and down as I wave for this electronic producer and DJ, IMLAY. No stranger to the mainstream music scene, IMLAY’s productions have been heard on SMTOWN music and SM Station.

So if you’re just getting into kpop but you miss the familiar sounds of EDM permeating your room and headphones, definitely check out IMLAY. Not all of his songs that he produces are in Korean and he does have a lot of instrumentals on his soundcloud.
