This song is excellent, anyone else feel the same? Her ep is pretty good too, though only Guap comes close to being as good as drink i'm sippin on

fav is probably feel it out, not big on raingurl tbh

Sometimes I listen to raingurl and it's incredible, and sometimes it feels corny. I love the dance music template she goes for in it though - it has such an underground house music feel but it's very direct and pop

My enjoyment of raingurl is directly correlated to how drunk I am when I hear it

I don't get people saying it's corny, but I also don't get "this is corny" in general.

Nick Sylvester has become a pretty serious producer, huh (Shamir, this)

the nick sylvester revelation makes me better understand this

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Wednesday, 27 December 2017 22:28 (two weeks ago) Permalink

'guap' sounds like galcher lustwerk and 'after that' sounds like luomo

'drink i'm sippin on' sounds like cassie fanclub x hip hop reference

this is probably not for me but its well- ... well-something

is he A&R-ing or managing or something

whats the deal with the line 'i don't fuck with family planning' in raingurl?

flopson, Wednesday, 27 December 2017 23:48 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I understand it as she isn't there to find a man

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 27 December 2017 23:52 (two weeks ago) Permalink

the line that precedes it is 'when the sweaty walls are bangin'

flopson, Wednesday, 27 December 2017 23:54 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Sure, atmosphere of a basement rave, does not need to be a sexual thing. I may be completely wrong of course.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 28 December 2017 00:01 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I interpret it is as she won't be making plans the next day with family as it's gonna be a crazy night

kolakube (Ross), Thursday, 28 December 2017 00:03 (two weeks ago) Permalink

xp- ah ya true that's probably it

flopson, Thursday, 28 December 2017 00:05 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Good lyric!

kolakube (Ross), Thursday, 28 December 2017 00:07 (two weeks ago) Permalink

A lot of her lyrics have this thing where she seems to know the words she wants to use but doesn't know that they usually collocate to different things, it makes them a bit confusing but also makes for sometimes very original language. I don't know if this is deliberate or juat a play on her code switching with Korean.

No, from interviews it sounds like she sent him demos and then they would produce/record the real versions together, using his gear etc. To me it definitely shares some sonic DNA with the Shamir record he did.

Here you go: https://www.residentadvisor.net/features/3121
"The first thing I heard were these tossed-off demos on SoundCloud," Sylvester tells me over the phone from the Godmode studio in Los Angeles. The thing that got him was her voice—raw and untreated, even off-key at times, totally unlike the overproduced vocals you hear on a lot dance music. "There's something almost voyeuristic about it," he says. "And I love her cadences, the way she uses English and Korean lyrics to hide meaning, or obscure it, or create a different meaning. I mean, it was just immediate."

They began collaborating. Sylvester, who's a professional studio musician and engineer, offered his technical know-how to juice up some of the ideas Lee had started in Ableton. When it comes to dance music, the role of an A&R person tends to be limited: they'll tell you which tracks they like, then assemble the individual releases and send them out for mixing and mastering. Sylvester, however, takes a hands-on approach that more closely resembles something you'd see on a big-budget pop record.

"What that means," he says, "is that Kathy often starts with the idea. She'll record something in her room, then shoot the stems over to me. Maybe I'll replace certain parts or rearrange them, or I'll send it back to her and be like, 'I think this could be better.'"

They recorded both of her EPs—Yaeji and EP2—this way. Lee jots down her production ideas along with her lyrics. Then they head to the studio together to reinterpret the whole thing using top-shelf equipment. "Drink I'm Sippin On," the big single from EP2, is actually a beat that Sylvester worked on during a trip to Atlanta, which accounts for its low-slung Southern rap sound. He wrote parts of "Feel It Out" for a song he originally pitched to Beyoncé. When her creative team passed on the instrumental, Lee wrote a whole new arrangement and made it the most memorable track on her first record.

That Boiler Room set is all kinds of incredible. So many different beats and moods but such great flow.
