What Does the ‘Ultimate K-Pop Song’ Sound Like to You?
On the night of May 30, Super Junior’s Shindong couldn’t hold in his excitement for a Youtube video he found online.
Shindong tweeted, “As always! MASA! He’s so good! If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch it. MASA Goooooooooooooood!!” The link he attached lead to DJ MASA’s Youtube page.
The famed DJ recently created a new K-Pop mash-up titled ‘Ultimate K-Pop Song,’ consisting of samples from more than forty popular K-Pop songs by groups like Big Bang, 2NE1, 2PM, TVXQ, and more.
In the video description, DJ MASA wrote, “We all know K-pop loves clichés and repetition, so naturally the ultimate K-pop song would consist entirely of your faves performing a combination of infectuous ahs, ehs, heys, okays, babys, booms, and more, right? Of course it would, and that′s why I bring to you the ultimate fantastic elastic K-pop cut-up song, "Baby Boom Tonight"!”
DJ MASA rose to Youtube fame within the K-Pop fan base for his flawless and smooth mash-ups of many K-Pop songs. His mixes have even been featured in several Korean television programs, including Mnet’s Must.
Listen to the ‘Ultimate K-Pop Song’ yourself and see if this is what the ultimate K-Pop song would sound like to you. If you could make your own, what songs would you add?
