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!
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.

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.

Everybody needs a little R&B/Soul in their life. Amirite? No? Yes? Maybe?
Well, maybe it’s cuz you haven’t been properly introduced to this artist SLCHLD. When I think of his music, it has this really smooth and chill sound to it. It sounds like kinda the new age of R&B mixed with a little 90s sound and underground. It’s amazing and I definitely love his music! And I’ll add… for the first time ever which song on the playlist below is my favorite… the last song. I’m just in love.
