Very Good

#16: 언제 어디서 무엇을 어떻게 (When, Where, How) With 조현아 (Jo Hyun Ah)

by 박경 (Park Kyung)

Album: Very Good | Release: October 2, 2013 | [Listen] [Review]

Block B’s Kyung helped to propel himself into the spotlight of his group with “언제 어디서 무엇을 어떻게 (When, Where, How).” He took this opportunity to to present himself as a solo artist, and nailed it. This was a very fresh sound to Kpop and Korean Hip Hop, similar to “Nice Day,” that is very addictive.

4th Mini Album- Trip

#15: 배인 (Vain) ft. 쿤타 (Koonta)

by 언터쳐블 (Untouchable)

Album: 4th Mini Album- Trip | Release: November 11, 2013 | [Listen]

Untouchable proved that time away in the army didn’t have a negative effect on their music with this album. “Vain” made it on my list because this Koonta/Untouchable collaboration lived up to all my fantasies! I loved how they meshed Rude Paper’s Reggae stylings with their Hip Hop, it was perfection.

#13: Wash Away ft. 에일리 (Ailee)

by 긱스 (Geeks)

Album: 1집 – Backpack | Release: April 29, 2013 | [Listen] [Review]

I loved this collaboration. Unlike with her own mini album this year, Ailee’s showed us another side to her vocal ability, rather than just belting out high notes. Paired with Geeks unique rapping style, this song was gold!

7집 - Lucky Numbers

#12: BAAAM ft. 뮤지 (Muzie)

by 다이나믹 듀오 (Dynamic Duo)

Album: 7집 – Lucky Numbers | Release: July 1, 2013 | [Listen]

Dynamic Duo introduced to a new sound to Korean Hip Hop with their song “BAAAM.” They managed to incorporate the usual R&B elements that is signature to Amoeba Culture, but still reinvented their sound with some the help of Muzie of UV. Its impossible for me to not bob along to this song everything I hear it.
