Artist of the Week | 효연 (Hyoyeon)

It’s been a while since the Artist of the Week was a kpop girl-group artist. I haven’t neglected them I’ve just been listening to so many different types of music that I almost forgot about mainstream artists.

So the spotlight for this week needs no introduction! You all know her for the top selling kpop girl group “Girls’ Generation (SNSD)”! She’s back with a solo comeback and so far she’s done really well on the charts!

If you haven’t heard her solo music before, check it out below!

Artist of the Week | 히치하이커 [Hitchhiker]

I’m so late on this post right? Sorry!! I’ve been listening to a lot of different things and forgot to keep track of it all. However, we’re back! For the artist this week, I’d have to describe him as more of  a dj. The music in the playlist below is more of electronic/techno pop. I guess you could say it’s a little different than what I’ve been introducing here.

I kinda like it but at the same time I can’t see myself listening to it everyday. This would get me so pumped in the gym or walking to class. Check out the playlist below to hear a sample!

 

Bonus! [song below is featured on playlist]

I cannot believe I let so many weeks pass before updating the Artist of the Week! However, I promise this is totally worth the wait! So I’ve been slowly introducing artists who you may or may not know but they’re part of the “chill” genre. It is one of my favorite genres in case you didn’t already notice.

The artist this week is s a y. Amazing vocals and production on her songs! I don’t know much about her but I stumbled across her and I just had to share what I heard.

Check out her sample playlist below!

Artist of the Week | CIFIKA (씨피카)

I used to listen to this sub-genre back in college to help me when I studied or typed my papers. It was what I commonly referred to as “elevator music” but it was really a sub of electronic/chill music. It was something about it that was always so calming and comforting for me.

Enter CIFIKA (씨피카).

She is literally one of the dopest artists I’ve heard in a long time and definitely needs more exposure. Known for her natural sound mixes with chirping birds and nature sounds, CIFIKA produces and mixes her own form of chill music.

I’m a huge fan and I wish I had known about her sooner. Check out her playlist below!
