Our editorial team is excited to present you with our newest series – a playlist series inspired by various cities and in the world and their particular atmosphere. This time around, the city of the week is Paris, Europe’s fashion capital.
You’ve seen it on Instagram—visual previews of singer-songwriter Sal Priadi clad in traditional garb and rising young musician Nadin Amizah (also known through her Instagram handle, cakecaine) in a decorously-veiled white dress, dancing in the middle of a dimly-lit abandoned building, with a voiceover of them reciting poems and lyrics of their creation. These previews are aimed to promote their latest collaborative single, “Amin Paling Serius,” Priadi’s fifth headlining single and Amizah’s fourth one.
During a vacay week like this, a little relaxation (and nostalgia, maybe) is needed. Unwind with these oldies-but-goodies playlist we’ve recently curated!
As the eldest member of boy group EXO, Xiumin enlisted first among the other members. The track “You” was released as his farewell to the fans through SM Station 3, two days after he enlisted in the military, and five days after his solo fanmeeting “Xiuweet Time”.
“Kapan terakhir kali kamu dapat tertidur tenang?” (When was the last time you slept well?) The question echoes on Hindia’s (also known as vocalist Baskara Putra) first line of his latest single, “Secukupnya.” It’s a rhetorical question, but it calls on us to answer it. Baskara asks us to stop for a while and evaluate that.
Park Chanyeol, or known mononymously as Chanyeol, is one of the most popular EXO members. He is also known for his passion in making musics, and had posted some of his covers of popular songs or self-produced music in his SoundCloud channel. He finally released a solo track two weeks ago, titled “봄 여름 가을 겨울 (SSFW)”, which also means Spring, Summer, Fall Winter” or “Four Seasons”.
Our first-ever gig and launching party was held last Saturday at D’Lab Building Menteng, Jakarta. Didn’t make it the other day? Don’t worry, we’ve prepared a playlist filled with our performers’ original music and songs played by the DJs at our gig just for you – and those who want to jump into our first-gig-nostalgia. Enjoy.
Chen, better known as the main vocalist of K-Pop super group EXO, is finally having his solo debut with the release of “April, and a Flower (사월, 그리고 꽃)” mini album. He showcased his perfect vocal technique, accompanied by gloomy instrumentals in the background.
Every once in a while, the mainstream audience of the music industry tires of the usual campaigners of lush life and bright lights and seeks for the next kooky kid to bring a little semblance of audiovisual balance between light and dark. Enter Billie Eilish, who managed to surprise and charm the pop industry with her EP “Don’t Smile At Me” back in 2017. This year, she is back with her debut full-length album “When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go”.
Indonesian rock band .Feast’s vocalist Baskara Putra has released his very own solo single under the sobriquet “Hindia”, which he has previously described as “something for everybody” on his social media posts. And turns out, Evaluasi is something for everybody. It’s not just a pop song – it’s a story of hope and a public note regarding an important social issue.
