I’m fairly new to Jung Key(정키). In fact, I kinda just stumbled on his new album today. But the things I have heard from it are amazing and I had to highlight them! I’m not sure if he’s a singer as well but I do know he is a producer and songwriter and he produced and wrote amazing songs!
I’m a fan!
I’m still struggling to put together a playlist from soundcloud since there are a lot of cover songs. So I posted the videos below.
So I was talking to a friend of mine who is relatively new to the kpop scene about some music he should listen to. That conversation led me to start recalling artists I hadn’t listened to in a while but I knew would be people he’d be interested in. And then I started scrolling through my old music and recommended artists and what do I find amongst all of that…
…formerly known as Acourve!
Starship Entertainment’s duo, Go Dak and Jae Hee announced back in April that due to some copyright issues they’d be changing their name. And though the name is different the sound is just as good! I tried to put together a playlist but I guess the online streaming sites aren’t up to date with their new name just yet. So I have videos below with a playlist featuring some of their older song.
Check out their new music below!
Since I’m back in school, I spend a lot of time listening to music again to help me study. One of my favorite genres undergrad was indie. (In some ways it still is…) I’m going to be honest though, 10 cm was not a band I thought I’d ever really like. I heard one song and was just like “meh” and then I took the time one rainy day to listen to a few more songs and now… I’m completely a fan!
10 cm began as a duo originally comprised of Kwon Jung-yeol and Yoon Cheol-jong. But I read somewhere that Yoon Cheol-jong left this year and so now only Kwon Jung-yeol remains.
If you haven’t heard of 10 cm before, check out the sample artist playlist below!
**Quick note: Not really sure how I managed to do this but I currently have two soundcloud accounts so if you see a Twenty Third Station with just one playlist on it, which should only be 10 cm Artist of the Week playlist, that’s me as well. It’s not my official account so please don’t follow it as I won’t be updating it.**
So there’s this genre of music called “chill rap” and though Sik-K may not identify his music as that, it definitely falls into that category. I’m such a fan of the sound… when the rapper can sing. And Sik-K actually does have a pretty nice voice.
Sik-K has been around for a little while. He was originally associated with AOMG but was dropped and now he’s been signed to H1GHR MUSIC. If you watch Show Me The Money, then you know that he was on SMTM 4 in 2015. I can’t really find much else on him but if you are into rap and like the chill sound, this may be the artist you’ve been missing on your playlist!
