[140 BPM, KEY OF EM] G-Dragon – Crayon (Epitone Trap Remix)

G-Trap

Get your trap on.
Meori eokkae mureup bal. Swag check swag check.

Before leaving to complete his own EP, Epitone left us with this K-trap gem. The Crayon remix is great for sets already jamming to the 70/140 trap genre, but we’ve personally dropped this track at anime and kpop gigs where top 40s were the hit. What we found was that the kids will fan-chant and sway to this hit. It’s a track nicely juxtaposed with Jun Areia’s PSY Gentleman mix for those who like to keep things twerk. Continue reading

Wonder Girls Like Money – Indaba Music Remix Contest

Indaba Music has begun a remix contest of the Wonder Girls’ Like Money single. Submissions for the contest, so far, have been fairly mediocre. Still, it provides the variety-seeking-DJ with a range of remix options for da wandagal’s song. Search through the  submissions on the contest page.

We’d like to endorse Epitone’s remix of Like Money which currently sits at rank #20 on the contest charts. Please feed him your votes to outrank the amateurs currently sitting in the top 10.

As the contest notes, stems are available for purchase for your own musical permutations if the mix.

K-Pop has finally arrived. The club energy that has been electrifying the eastern hemisphere has permeated the current consciousness of American culture. As if to punctuate the point, Wonder Girls, one of the premier K-Pop outfits, have broken into a wider audience with their new single “Like Money”.

Now Wonder Girls and Indaba Music want you to take this tune from the stratosphere to the ionosphere. We’re looking for the hottest Club or Hip-Hop remixes your musical minds can create.

Enter the contest to download the stems and get started.

[131 BPM, Key of D#m] Adamiro – Hypnotize (Areia Balkan ver.)

We really hope this isn’t Jun Areia’s last hurrah. If you haven’t been following him closely, he’s been going through hard times funding his music career. Despite this, Jun has partnered with Adamiro’s agency to produce an official remix. Continue reading

[134 BPM Key of Em] KARA – PANDORA (TRANCE BLOSSOM VS. DJ AMAYA REMIX)

Remember that time when we said Trance Blossom and DJ AMAYA were probably working on something together?  Right. It happened. This remix is the love child of their intercourse. It’s got TB kicks and AMAYA snares; and the synths have mixed instrumentality stemming from the two producers.

Up until now, the Kpop community had not yet been given a solid remix of KARA’s chart-buster. Staying true to the song’s name, this remix of Pandora is a gift to the DJ community. As we also commented earlier, separately, the two producers have great structure to their remixes that enable easy mixability. The same quality exists with this combined production. Being DJs themselves, this remix comes with a nice intro and outro. Continue reading

[128 BPM Key of Dm] Psy – Gangnam Style (KATFYR, Blue Satellite, Epitone Remix)

Holy shit.

Did you just listen to that remix? It’s a three-way collaboration and it certainly sounds like one.  The mix is a blend between two of our favorites, Blue Satellite and Epitone, and one new celebrity producer we’re just now placing on the kpop radar — KATFYR. If you’re familiar with each of these producers’ work you can hear the sounds the structure each contributes to the mix; and it’s a harmonious blend at that. More comments after the jump.

[129 BPM Key of Bm] SNSD – Paparazzi (Trance Blossom Remastered Club Mix)

Trance Blossom recently remastered his remix of SNSD’s Paparazzi. It’s very heavy in the sense that it fills all three EQ bands– but that shouldn’t discourage you from inserting this remix into your sets. He’s provided a “Club” version with a Dj-friendly intro and outro that gradually let the synths and mid/high frequencies in.

With this latest remix we now feel like Trance Blossom has elevated himself to the higher tier of remixers/producers who we’ll regularly cover on this blog. Though there may be an abundance of Kpop remixers, we like to think that we only select the best to be featured on Spin Kpop. We’re happy to say that Trance Blossom is now pre-approved for the cut.

There’s something about the harmony/chord progression to this remix that it really reminds us of DJ AMAYA’s work. We like the way both of these producers structure their remixes, so we’re excited to follow and hear more from the two. If we were to abstractly describe DJ AMAYA remixes as “crunchy,” Trance Blossom would surely be characterized as “smooth.” The word through the grapevine is that Trance Blossom and DJ AMAYA have collaborations planned in the future, so we anticipate their results.

Trance Blossom’s instrumental and other variations of the Paparazzi remix are available on his website in .WAV format. In case you wanted to save some space on your Dj rig, we’ve compressed his club .wav remix to be in 320kbps mp3 for download here.

[128 BPM Key of Cm] 2NE1 – I Love You (Epitone Remix) Club Vers. Extended.

Following the feeling of the original, Eptione created his own remix with prog house synths and highly reverberated chords. It wouldn’t be an Epitone remix without its own dirty dutch instrumental break midway through — which we totally dig. Though Epitone posted this a while back, we hadn’t noticed his extended edit until now.

For some reason, we missed this one. We even started on our own edit of the Epitone Remix because we thought he wasn’t making a version for the DJ crowd. In any case, it’s here. He leads into the intro verse very gently so make sure your previous track isn’t too hard hitting before jumping into this one.

Having mixed with the non-extended version of this track before, we also found that using Epitone’s instrumental (starting at 1:45 in this club version) is a great way to mix in from a previous track that may have been bass heavy. Continue reading

Remix Recap: PSY – OPPAN GANGAM STYLE

In case you were out of the loop, Gangnam Style has become something of a viral international phenomenon. Transcending borders, this kpop hit has begun to see air-play on California mainstream radiostations. The hit has become so popular that it has even surpassed SNSD’s “Gee,” the national anthem for kpop, in YouTube views. What does this say about the future kpop?

Whether or not this is a passing trend, we here at Spin Kpop want to keep you DJ’s well-equipped to weather the Gangnam storm. The following collection of Gangnam Style mashups, edits and remixes has been in the works for some time. Drawing off the popularity of our two former Gangnam Style Edits, we’ve seen the community-need for a larger selection of Gangnam Style content. Now serving as the definitive hub for quality variations on the Gangnam Style single for DJs, we’ll update this post as new releases are made by the community. Check out our compilation after the break.

[128 BPM Key of Gmaj] BIG BANG (빅뱅) – Blue (Epitone Remix vs eHash ReWork)

Songs in major keys are rare. A few months ago Epitone released his orchestral remix of Big Bang’s “Blue.” Because it’s so rare to have a song in a major key we wanted to make sure DJ’s could add this number to their sets. A sentimental single with strings in a major key makes this remix a nice note to close a set on, but we provide both an intro and outro in case you’d like to keep the gig going. The song carries a stronger kick throughout should the dancers need a beat to move to.

[136/68 BPM Key of Em] Wonder Girls – The DJ Is Mine (Afrojack Remix)

As the TheProphetBlog explained, “DJ megastar Afrojack has managed to pull himself away from producing Paris Hilton’s comeback album long enough to drop an official remix of the Wonder Girls‘ Nickelodeon flop ‘The DJ Is Mine.'”

It’s very much a typical afrojack song, which is to say, the accapella and melody constantly fluctuates between two pitches throughout. But hey, it’s a nice half tempo song without the dubstep wobbles. Playing this remix isn’t going to make the DA WANDAGALs’ fan-grr’s happy during a live set, but it does provide some EDM and tempo variety to an already heavily saturated 128-130 BPM trance kpop library.

Download the Afrojack remix of the Wonder Girls’ The DJ Is Mine, here.
