Discussion in 'K-pop' started by Attis, Oct 4, 2022.

  1. My game is crashing mid-game and I'm mad. Let's just open this rate, shall we ?


    K-pop is such a fascinating phenomenon. For an industry that's very open that visual is their main selling point, music industry as the vehicle of K-pop idols are evolving faster and faster. Starting from Sweetune & Yoo Young-Jin to Brave Brothers & Shinsadong Tiger, now there are many musical talents working behind the K-pop scenes, trying to find the perfect recipe for pop music while also injecting their own personalities into it.

    So why e.one, Full8loom & 1Piece ? What's so special of them ?

    Well, if you have been witnessing me in this pink prison, I'm a big advocate for synth-y, upbeat bright songs (usually regarded as "magical girl pop") and these three producers can be regarded as the pioneer for it. Almost all of them starts to shine in 2014-2016.

    e.one, consists of Jung Ho-Hyun and Choi Hyun-Joon, is more experienced with bigger catalogue and have worked with many girlgroups such as Gfriend, WJSN and later IZ*One. They usually have strong penchant for 4/4 disco beats and dramatic strings.

    Full8loom, consists of Jinli, Glory Face, yuka, Harry, Bang Geonu, Ju-0 and Jake K (who has left in 2019 and now part of another brilliant production team, ARTiffect). In girl groups, they found their muse on WJSN and has been praised for the trilogy. They're probably the most idiosyncratic out of this list, and then to be more noisy and experimental on their composition.

    1Piece, consists of music veteran Yoon Sang and two indietronica musicians Davink and Spacecowboy, found their muse on Lovelyz. They're considerably less diverse, but if you're big fan of sentimentality you will love them. The strong bittersweet feels in the melody which may be attributed to the co-founder Yoon Sang, a legend in 90s era with jazzy and hazy balladry.

    But fear not boygroup stans who read this. They also have been working with several boy groups like GOT7, Drippin, VIXX, Golden Child, The Boyz and even Stray Kids so don't be scared away to exploring their discographies !

    It's time for us to rate, shine a spotlight and celebrate these talents that has shaped our favorite groups and make our little K-pop scene diverse and beautiful as ever.

    Welcome to K-pop Producer Spotlight Rate : e.one / Full8loom / 1Piece !

    Just like Monotree : The Popjustice Rate (credits to ms @Wills), we will also do submission-based for this rate. We will curate and pick 66 songs out of these producer's catalogue.

    Here's the process will be :
    • This is open for anyone !
    • PM me a list of up to 10 eligible songs you would like to see included. Eligibility will be explained below.
    • This list should be numbered in order of preference – #1 will be the most prioritized and #10 is the least prioritized.
    • You can change your nomination ballot as many times as you'd like, right up until the deadline.
    • The ballot will be randomized after the deadline so there won't be any advantage on faster submitter hehe.
    • The #1 and #2 on your ballot will be automatically selected, but if it's already picked I will pick #3 and so on.
    • After that, the rest of the songs will be judged by their total points, total submitter and positions.
    HOWEVER, I think me as a host should have some privileges. So here are my 6 picks that is guaranteed a spot on the rate :

    Soya - Artist
    Kim Areum - Diving

    The Boyz - Clover
    Golden Child - Spell
    Drippin - Nostalgia
    April - Take My Hand

    @Wills told me that he won’t be visiting the forum for a while and that he is giving me the power to choose his 10 songs for him. Everybody say thank you @Wills!! We love you, charitable legend!!

  13. I would like to see you send another Kim Areum / Spacecowboy songs bestie


    Also update we have a ballot ! FYI to all of you, it can still be changed until the deadline.
    Remorque, ysev, Ana Raquel and 8 others like this.
  14. Can I send 10
    Remorque, nikkysan, ysev and 3 others like this.
  15. Sure but make it sure it's all produced by Spacecowboy


    (prob mix it with some songs from idk...Lovelyz and WJSN pleek dd)
    Remorque, nikkysan, ysev and 7 others like this.
  16. Count me in bestie! So many good songs here.
    Remorque, nikkysan, ysev and 5 others like this.
  17. I was just thinking, do we really need almost a whole month just for submissions? I mean, fair enough if it's more convenient that way for whatever reason, but it's not like making a list of your ten favourite songs and submitting it is particularly time consuming. It was just one week in the MonoTree rate.
    ysev, Attis and Wills like this.
  18. Now tell that to still only 2 ballots sitting in my spreadsheet dd.

    I'm giving more time because I think these 3 producers, despite adored, needs a bit more exploring compared to more notorious Monotree. I also want to give a chance to potential submitter, for example @enjoy reach out to me that they only want to vote. By giving a month, now they can explore the music a bit more to submit something.

    Also to give me a rest time ff I'm still retaliating from hosting slashers game and now joining another slasher game.

    Take it slow, maybe you can find a new discovery .
