Rapper’s Delight Playlist

khiphop playlist

I know I started off with the Morning Dew Playlist in the early years of this blog, but I don’t find myself listening to as much Korean indie because they usually sound relatively the same. Even more so than K-pop, I end up listening to more K-hip hop than anything else. I don’t plan on killing the Morning Dew Playlist, but right now it’s at a standstill until i’m in the mood to listen to whispery, airy music accompanied with melodica’s and egg shakers. This playlist is a little dated because I made the image and then didn’t bother to actually make a blog post about it, but the songs highlighted in pink I’m always replaying.  Continue reading “Rapper’s Delight Playlist”

Morning Dew Playlist #6 [Beenzino Edition]

Hello my music loving friends! I think with each MDP post, i’m redefining it by adding artists that are not K-indie, hopefully you don’t mind because I decided to introduce Beenzino who is a South Korean rapper and not “morning dew-esque” in any way. Although, arguably he can be considered an underground rapper, which when it boils down to it is indie. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen his name floating around before but never really bothered to listen to his stuff. That all changed when Epik High came out with Shoebox just recently and featured Beenzino in their music chart hit “Born Hater”. Continue reading “Morning Dew Playlist #6 [Beenzino Edition]”

Morning Dew Playlist #5

Wanted to try something different with this playlist and I’m hoping to do this again but with even better results! If you followed KpopStar season 2, the brother-sister duo Akdong Musician should be no stranger to you. After deciding to sign with YG I was very afraid of what image the swaggeristic empire of YG would chisel these kiddies into. Continue reading “Morning Dew Playlist #5”

Morning Dew Playlist 4 (Casker Edition)

Morning Dew Playlist 4

First morning dew playlist of the year, and I’m happy to announce that I cordially invited Casker to join me…too bad they have not a single clue. The amazing duo is formed by Yung Jin on vocals and Lee Jun Ho…basically on everything else. This amazing group won my heart since my last morning dew post, but after digging even more into their humble song collection, I’ve become a huge fan.

Morning Dew Playlist 3

Morning Dew Playlist 3

I love Korean Indie so much more than I love Kpop. Although the Kpop industry has many talented artists, i’m sure they find themselves stuck in a box because really the company they are under are out to make profit. Indie bands have more of opportunity to experiment with different sounds, instruments, and lyrics. The indie scene is very versatile whether it’s Korean, American, or any other culture out there. I appreciate that I don’t have to see girls flailing around killing me with aegyo and boys melting me with their sexy stares in the indie environment. Although you do get that too, but there is so much more you can find in this genre. I’ve recently discovered the electro side to Korean indie…it’s very interesting and something I am willing to give a try. Continue reading “Morning Dew Playlist 3”

Morning Dew Playlist 2

Here’s another look at my current Korean indie playlist. I am using the term indie very loosely in these playlist series. I think instead of terming it indie, I’m going to say Morning Dew which encompasses all soft, warm, fuzzy music that I like to listen to from time to time. Some songs are sung by artists who are considered kpop idols, but the sound of the song they are singing doesn’t remind me too much of the kpop genre. Some are songs that came out long ago but that I have just discovered, and there are others that have come out recently. I also include drama ost’s which are not exactly indie, but they can also provide the same soft sound if you are into that. Here is my first Morning Dew Playlist. Enjoy!
