Soupermatic and DJ PeterLo bid farewell to Big Bang until members return from their military service. Are Big Bang’s concluding hits, “Fxxk It” and “Last Dance” Daebak or Not? Continue reading
When you’re gone for a day and return it’s worthy of a COMEBACK STAGE – at least for Nurse Joyce who missed our last episode. For this episode, we review BAP’s “Skydive” and SHINee’s “Tell Me What To Do” for Daebak or Not. Following this, we discuss TOP’s military departure and TWICE’s rise to fame.
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.
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.[audio https://spinkpop.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/blue-epitone-remix-vs-ehash-rework.mp3]

Epitone gives us another kpop banger to get crunk to. Following his gig at Club Marquee in NYC, Pete decided to make his remix public. From what we gather, it sounds like he worked on this track with a high schooler with some nice toys. We won’t comment much on this release, but we like it. Epitone had us DJs in mind with this release with a clean extended intro and outro. Download it here.
The usual info: 130 BPM in the Key of Dm.
We thought it was worth sharing one of his latest mashups. Madeon’s Icarus makes a great instrumental, and Huygens takes full advantage of pitch bending to fit accapellas into the song’s structure. As the video title indicates, the track takes accapellas from: 2ne1, Big Bang & Se7en.
We’re currently thinking of making an extended version of Huygens’ mashup to drop in your sets, but given atmospheric intro of the original, this may be unneeded. Let us know in the comments.
