New Music: Korean Pop Hitting the U.S. Top 40′s

0

 

As a blogger, I never really write about the music from my culture or even any others to be quite honest. I decided to do something different with this topic and showcase the upcoming international acts that have already collaborated with American electronic producers. I do love writing about the latest musicians from the US, UK and Canadian market, but how often do you see or read popular online music blogs who showcase the same genre, but in a different language? Sure, you and I might not understand what they’re singing, but you can’t say no to a good/catchy background beat…

During one of my late nights of researching and reviewing music, I stumbled across a Korean boy band by the name of Super Junior. And let me say… I was surprised that there 13 members in one band. 10?! You can make up to 2-3 bands with that size, but in the South Korean market, that’s how they like to do it. While listening to their track and checking out other labels in South Korea.. I came across 2NE1. If I were to put Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and J-Lo, this would be the equivalent of that. These girls are huge… so popular that just last year Will.i.Am invited the group over to his studio to produce an album.

Although this isn’t the first time we’re seeing Korean musicians in the North American music charts (BoA, Wonder Girls), it’s only a matter of time that we’re going to see this become even more popular. Going back to 2NE1, I was really surprised at their sound and in a way.. their originality (in a Korean music stand point). Just last month, the group won MTV Iggy’s Best New Band in the World, gaining even more recognition with the North American market and from producers such as Diplo. In the video above, was an interview conducted earlier this week at MTV Headquarters in NYC. The girls had the chance to perform at a live event for the first time with the network, bringing even more attention to their upcoming full-length English album produced by Will.i.Am, which is set to be released in early 2012.

Personally, by just listening to only three tracks so far by these girls.. I’m already addicted to their stuff. Even Diplo had a couple of good words about 2NE1, mentioning that “they’re crazy live…and they already have a head start”. I hope this short post will give you an idea on what’s about to happen in the new year with international musicians. And that there’s more to the Top 40 charts, right now we see more and more Canadian acts in the American market, but will we soon get acts from Asia? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Mash-Up Mondays – Culture Shock – Titus Jones

0

“Culture Shock will feature roughly over 50 artists mashed up into about an hour’s worth of Titus Jones mashups. Every single one of the tracks, with the exception of the first Culture Shock track I’ve already released – Hold Your Sexy Arms Against Me – will be brand new, never before heard.

It’s heavy on the Britney, heavy on the 80′s, and heavy on the hits. It’s also got a few good 90′s tracks in there as well, plus some good early 2000s tracks too! It’s VERY dance-able. I’ve stirred in a few country artists, some classic rock, some rap and hip-hop, some electro, and it’s chock full of shameless POP.” – Titus Jones

Today marks the release of Titus Jones’ first full mash-up album Culture Shock. With a total of 14 new mash-ups, I hope all the listeners here on Room-Noise will enjoy this brand new album. I have always been a huge supporter of Titus Jones and so far, this album sounds fantastic.
