As of April 2018, Dae Kim has released his first instrumental LP “Solace” under Mü-nest! This is the Korean-born, Malaysian-based music composer and filmmaker’s first LP, which portrays his perspective of this expedition through a soundscape of the living world.
Start off your new year with verse-based acrobatics and banging beats at the latest instalment of Raising the Bar at Gasket Alley, starting from 8pm til late on the 31st of December!
This up-and-coming rapper has been at the top of his game for the past 3 years now, but this year – with his future performance at Good Vibes Festival 2017 and the release of his first EP, Bagel under This Way Up Records (which we recently reviewed and gave it a double thumbs up), things are gonna heat up even more. Not forgetting to mention, his Asia Tour (which is wrapping up today) with Alextbh & Zamaera. We had a chat with this 19-year-old rapper/producer prodigy over some cup of coffee, and talked about bagels, Malay families and more!
My first exposure to hip-hop was a comedic skit (I think it was either Senario or Ah-Ha). The scene was using Too Phat‘s Anak Ayam Freak to the Beat, specifically the ya-aw-aw’s that were playing throughout the track.
Hip hop was a mere caricature.
