Welcome back to this collection of the most chill picks of all. Today we’ve got: Ambience. Atmosphere. Lush vibes. Psychedelia. You name it.
But before listening to any of the music in this article, I recommend you to plug in your best set of headphones/earphones/speakers/whatever you use for blasting good music because this article is a different experience. And you’ll know when you really listen 🙂
KUČKA – Honey (medasin redo):
Artist(s): KUČKA, medasin
Album: Honey Remixed – EP
Genre(s): Electronic, Future Beat, Future Funk
Thoughts: With this serene rework of KUČKA’s Honey, medasin has created a good name for himself. This was the track that got me into the artist; it was when I first discovered him on SoundCloud while I was, you know, looking for an escape from my assignments like any normal person. Honey, being an already smooth song was made even better by the jazzy chords and kicks.
Hibernation – Brennan Henderson
Artist(s): Brennan Henderson
Album: Never Been Cool
Genre(s): Dance, electronic
Thoughts: It’s my first time coming across Henderson, who I discovered through Clairo, an artist featured previously in this series. Quite a new take on electronic music, this track and all I can say is that for me, the music sounds quite similar to that of Cashmere Cat, another experimental musician who has been in the spotlight for the past few years now.
I Don’t Wanna Love You – June One Kim, Krystal:
Artist(s): June One Kim, Krystal
Album: I Don’t Wanna Love You (Single)
Genre(s): Hip-hop, Electro Pop
Thoughts: First of all, I was really excited for this song to come out because two well-known artists, June One Kim of Glen Check and Krystal of f(x), collaborated to create this song, topping it off with a mind-blowing music video. So Indie. (By the way, I was screaming at the top of my lungs at how aesthetically pleasing everything in this video is. I mean, it’s Krystal Jung’s after all.)
This vibed out production is so different of what is expected of artists coming from famous K-Pop groups, but then what else can be expected from (Korean) artists who keep on creating unbelievably good music, am I right?
Rating: 7/7 (I would have given it more but since there’s a boundary, I sadly can’t)
You can look forward to more songs like these, and feel free to drop comments and suggestions 🙂
