Oppan Gangnam Style Goes with Everything

It’s been great to see Oppan Gangnam Style on top 40 charts the last couple months — currently sitting at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. As a result, dozens of Gangnam Style mashups and edits have appeared in various DJ pools. At this point we’ve collected approximately 50 solid mixes of the kpop charting single. Dj Ravine in his above video demonstrates just how expansive the single has become. Given the grand volume of mashups and edits, we’re deciding whether or not to release a package of what we’ve found. Would you, DJs, appreciate the package? Let us know in the comments.

K-CON: KPOP DJ CONTEST (yes, it’s for real)

Just when we were thinking of buying our own exhibitor booth at K-Con, the MNET-organized conference drops this little gem on us. As seen, it appears the contest is still in the planning stages. It’s an opportunity not to miss for the bedroom DJs in particular.

We’re especially curious what the format and judging paradigm for this contest will be. Time will tell. Be sure to check the contests page when further details are revealed.

As expected, SpinKpop will continue to feed you with custom edits and remixes to make your own kpop mix entry into the contest.

Upcoming: Moar Oppan Gangam Style Content

Full disclosure: most of our recent traffic has for Gangnam Style DJ edits. It seems nearly every kpop outlet is riding on the coattails of Gangnam style wave, and we’re not afraid to admit doing the same.

We’re happy to announce that we’re finalizing a package of Gangnam Style edits and remixes for download in the next couple days to bring extended variety and life to this viral meme. While it may be that PSY’s single is approaching the end of its 15 minutes of fame, we thought we’d provide the resources needed to play the Gangnam Style song in different ways.

Stay tuned. The YouTube teaser featured above is Epitone and Blue Satellite’s joint remix of the song.

We’re not dead yet

Yes, it’s been some time since we’ve updated. Lets say we just went on a bit of a summer break. In any case, we’re back and we’ll try to maintain a 3 post qutoa per week. As we spin up the turntables, let us know if there are any content directions you’d like to see this resource hub take by leaving us a comment.

Remix Recap: Wonder Girls – Nobody

Pretend the year is 2009. Kpop started to make the first of a few failed ventured into the US, and the Wonder Girls weren’t targeting just the kids.

We’re launching a new series here at Spin Kpop in order to make this blog a better resource for DJs. We call it “Remix Roundup” where we literally pull all the available quality remixes on the net into bundle posts for each of the charting Kpop singles. To start the series, we’re going with one of the more clichély remixed singles by da wandagals: Nobody. We’ve listed the remixes that have made the cut below. If there is anything you think we should add to this list, feel free to let us know by email or in the comments.

Maintainence Update: Now embedding music players

If you haven’t noticed by now, we’ve retrofitted the blog to have embedded music players. Finally, we are now up to date with most music blogs. As you can probably imagine, this upgrade involved the use of college professors who devised complex algorthims spanning several green chalkboards and a highly-trained technical staff who engineered analogue machinery in white lab coats. Yessir, we here at Spin Kpop spare no expense.

No longer do you have to save an audio file to your desktop before listening to it. The purpose of this feature is to help you listen to music faster, and to help you with your download-decision-making.
