SAM&SP3CK INTERVIEW
Hey guys! Shey here. A few days ago I had the privilege of getting in contact with Syed Fernando, SP3CK of SAM&SP3CK, and he was kind enough to answer a few questions. Here we go! Q1) Who are you/Where are you from? A1) SAM (Sam Hong) is from Korea, and SP3CK (Syed Fernando) am from Malaysia. Q2) How did you meet? A2) We met about a year and a half ago when I was working in a small entertainment company called Cino Entertainment in Seoul as a producer. We became a duo 6 months later. We both had been making for 4 years prior to that. Q3) What inspired you to make electronic music? A3) We pretty much derive out inspiration from every other genre and, obviously, we took interest in electronic music at that time because we were curious as to how they make those sounds. Q4) Are you just a duo, or do you have more people working with you?/Are you working under a company? Or are you a self signing group? A4) We are a duo, but we just started our own small label/entertainment company called Big Beetle with another person called DJ Ruppy. Q5) Do the two of you live in Korea? Or do you live in separate countries? A5) We are both currently based in Seoul. For those of you that are interested in following them on social media, feel free to click on the links below.

BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
