Mellow Monday! Part 3, Dean ft Syd – Love

I can promise you, that this is not the only entry from Dean in my top 12.

Dean for me is just an amazing artist and producer. His vocal range, creativity and personality are just incredible. I also love reading about his journey into music – I love the fact that the route he took wasn’t the clean cut and simple one and his body of work that has seamlessly worked its way into my life is just. Amazing.

I thought I’d put both the original version of the song on this post and the colors session. I honestly believe the above live really just showcases how beautiful his voice is and we should all appreciate him and his pure talent.

I really hope you enjoy this song and look forward to post the next one!

Mellow Monday! Part 2, Crucial Star ft. Nam Surim – It Hurts Me Too

I couldn’t find an official music video for this song so we will have to settle with a lyric video

I remember a few years ago randomly stumbling across this song and just being taken by the sound of the song – I know most of you are thinking, well no shit sherlock, all songs have sound. But Crucial stars rap with the juxtaposition against Surim’s vocals is really beautifully pieced together, the gentle nature of the chorus, and the beat change in the last minute really make this song for me.

This song is from his 2012 single Fall and the rest of his discography following this is just as good so I definitely suggest checking it out.

I hope you enjoy the song and I will be posting either tomorrow or Thursday 🙂

Mellow Monday! Part 1, Loco – Post It

Hey everyone! It’s been a hell of a long time since I’ve properly done a Mellow Monday on here. So I decided that for the next 2 weeks I will post 12 Mellow Mondays on this channel – That’s right 12. Don’t die of shock.

So the over running theme of these post will be different Korean Hip-Hop and R&B songs that I just really love and could listen to every day without fail and still love them.

Kicking things off is a true gem from Loco. The song and the music video separately hold their own. The gentleness of Loco’s vocals really give the song such a smooth vibe. And the pure creativeness present in the music video is genuinely so captivating – I’ve seen a lot of music videos which attempt to use the vertical layout, but he managed to step it up another level.

I hope you enjoy the video and I will be posting again tomorrow 🙂

Mellow Monday! Jay Park – V

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the super delayed post. I’ve been quite ill and just focusing a lot on work so I haven’t had much time to do anything.

But I’ve decided to take some time to really focus on the things I love and want to do, and this is one of them! I know it doesn’t seem like it, considering I’m constantly flitting in and out of posting. But I really love producing content for others to read and discuss. There are going to be a few new posts coming up over the next few weeks, one namely the finance update for my year of development, also some practices I’ve taken up in my spare time.

But! Back to the post at hand, the Mellow Monday! Today’s song of choice is V by Jay Park. I recently watched the YouTube docuseries about Jay Park and it really let people see Jay as a human and someone who really works hard in his career. It really outlined his struggles as an Asian American in both the American and Asian markets, and all the feats he has accomplished over this time. It also has a lot of wise words from some notable artist like Dumbfoundead, Far East Movement, Dok2, Simon Dominic, and Loco to name a few. It’s a sure fire watch for anyone interested, so I definitely suggest checking it out.

The song V for me is just a really feel good song and puts me in a good mood every time I listen to it – it gives me real summer vibes! Plus the 1 Million dance cover was immaculate, YooJung Lee and KooSung Jung did such a good job with it.

I’ll end this post now, and I’ll leave a link below for the docuseries’ trailer. I’ll post at some point this week.

Happy Bank holiday for readers in the UK, and have great weeks everyone x

Mellow Monday! City Girl

This Mellow Monday is a little different to the others, as its a full album not one particular song. It was a tough choice choosing which album to post as I pretty much listen to all of them equally, but I settles with Neon Impasse as it was the first one I found.

I think the best way its described is a mixture of Lofi/Jazzhop/Chill music. In short – its easy listening. I normally listen to City Girl on my way to work in the morning, whilst I’m working, or when I’m blogging at home. It’s not as distracting.

I feel like I’m rambling so I’ll end this post here.

Enjoy

Mellow Monday! On Your Collarbone – Jordan Klassen

I’ve been a bit all over the place recently. I haven’t blogged. I haven’t replied to my pen pal. I haven’t really made time for myself properly. All I’ve really been doing is spending money and drinking constantly. Probably not the healthiest thing to be doing, for both me and my bank balance, but that’s life I guess.

This week’s Mellow Monday is on the soundtrack for one of my favourite dramas, Hello My Twenties. I’m rewatching it for the second time and it’s just one of the songs that make me smile.

Here’s hoping I can fix myself up and just do some things that are more productive for my physical and mental wellbeing.

Enjoy

Mellow Monday! Diary of Jane – Breaking Benjamin

I was looking through my blog posts and can see its 8 days shy of a year since I last posted a Mellow Monday segment. I really enjoy making these posts as I’ve been told I have an eclectic music taste because I literally listen to everything – I’m being serious when I say that, not like some people that use it as way to seem interesting. I also really like sharing with you songs I have a genuine connection with and I know I’ve been extremely lax with my posting. I’m going to switch it up a bit this year and have it as a bi-weekly Monday post in the hope it will push me to post more.

So this weeks song is Diary of Jane by Breaking Benjamin. Not a new song but something I listen to quite frequently. A friend of mine in secondary school introduced me to the band and I’ve been a fan since. I hope you enjoy this song and look into some of their other songs. I struggled between choosing this song or Dance with the Devil, another favourite of mine but settled with this one.

I have a few posts lined up too so see you then.
