Greatest Collaborative Album 2022

Babylon – Ego 90’s

The lineup even on paper is sufficient to make an R&B fan drool. Babylon’s supporting forged spans the previous, current and way forward for the Korean scene, spanning the Nineteen Nineties pioneers of Lee Hyeon-do and Uptown to the more energizing faces like Kassy and Sam Kim. Even the early-mid 2000s scene – which I really feel will not be acknowledged sufficient between extra celebrated eras – is well-represented with Ann One, Lim Jeong-hee, Realslow, Kim Bum-soo, and Naul on the producer helm. The dream workforce comes collectively to stay up this dreamy throwback of an album, every sleekly produced gradual jam set aside by fiercely distinctive vocals. It is a deal with to listen to a few of these vocalists, a few of whom had maybe left this period behind, again of their ingredient; hearken to Boni, whose love for Nineteen Nineties R&B is well-documented, sing her coronary heart out like a fish in water.

The Runner-up

Choi Beck-ho – 찰나 (Second)

We make some extent of together with just a few collaborative singles between artists from totally different generations yearly; certainly, that is explicitly one of many standards that we search for. However I am unable to bear in mind the final time a senior musician put out a whole album with this a lot emphasis on working throughout generations. Aside from a observe together with his up to date Jeong Mijo and one other with Tiger JK (nonetheless a full 24 years his junior), Choi Beck-ho tapped the youthful voices of Colde, George, Jung Seung-hwan, and (briefly) Zico to sing alongside him. These resonant compositions acquire an beautiful texture as Choi’s deep, life-worn vibrato mix with the sharpness and enthusiasm of the children; given the lyrics they develop into contemplations on the expertise of youth and growing old itself.

The Subsequent 10

A.Practice – Personal Pink

Bosudongcooler, Hathaw9y – Love Sand

Bronze – Skyline

Daul, Noair, Plan8, Channel 201 – Subsequent

Devine Channel – Unorthodox

Kim Doeon – Injury

Nucksal & Cadejo – 당신께 (Sincerely Yours)

SoundSupply_Service – SCA1 (Facet B)

Youra & Mandong – 이런 분위기는 기회다 (The Vibe Is a Probability)

Greatest Collaborative Track 2022

Lee Gwon-hyeong – 석촌호수 (The Lake) (Feat. Ye Ram, Chun Yong-sung)
Written and composed by Lee Gwon-hyeong, Ye Ram, Chun Yong-sung
Organized by Lee Gwon-hyeong

The track is nominally about Seokchon Lake, the substitute lake and park in Seoul. This finally ends up that means radically various things to the three people musicians on the observe. (By the way, these three took away our #1 or #2 Greatest People Album in 2018, 2020, and 2021.) To Lee Gwon-hyeong, writing in English, it is a reminder of a buddy who works close by; to Ye Ram, writing in Japanese, it is an unstated forlornness; to Chun Yong-sung, writing in Korean, it is about extra sensible issues just like the commute filled with baseball followers. The shifts in melody and temper because the observe goes between languages, even at only a few stanzas every, are fascinating. And the light strokes of “The Lake” are broad sufficient to embrace all of it, asking what else binds our experiences collectively.

The Runner-up

Tomsson – 역전포차 (Yeokjeon Pocha) (Feat. MC Meta, Sungsoo Lee of HarryBigButton)
Written by Tomsson, MC Meta
Composed and organized by Money Observe

MC Meta’s pioneering forays into satoori-based rap have given us quite a lot of “what the hell was that?” moments, and Tomsson’s collaboration de él together with his Daegu senior de él is a kind of too. The addictive rhythm and exact intonations of the Dongnam satoori wielded by the 2 emcees is clearly the star right here, and it is a dramatic, technically intricate deal with. Nevertheless it’s onerous to not get distracted by the ridiculously cheeky sampling of Oh Ki-taek’s “11 at Night time at Daegu Station” (1966), or regional specialty Cham Soju getting used as an interjection, or the metallic intrusion of Sungsoo Lee (I don ‘t know if he is additionally from Daegu) which does not even actually match neatly with the beat. It is from the cleanest or most cohesive factor you have heard this 12 months, however I really feel assured it will be one of the vital enjoyable – and that is one factor that we all the time search for from collaborations.
