If rojak could sing, it’ll only sing local music

If rojak could sing, it’ll only sing local music

It’s absolutely mind-boggling how much local music has transcended over the years that it’s difficult to form opinions surrounding it since any conclusion gathered becomes obsolete quickly. I’ve been a fan for 15 years now, but *pfft*, it’s still not enough to scratch the surface of our music. So anyway, danamic. kick-jolted me from my slumber, hypnic jerk-style – requesting a write-up out of the Spotify playlist they created called ‘Local Delights’ (which sounds like a canteen tuckshop from your primary school days). However, a confession before I get into the meat of the article though: danamic. didn’t really specify…
DANAMIC’s Top 10 Kpop Bops of 2018

DANAMIC’s Top 10 Kpop Bops of 2018

In the year of 2018, Korean producers and artists alike have proven one universal truth: that one does not need to understand the Korean language to enjoy K-pop. Pushing every musical boundary that ever existed, the music has easily won us over with its catchy tunes and addictive lyrics. With a wide range of genres such as hip-hop, synth-pop, R&B, and EDM, 2018 has seen both emerging Korean artists and veterans achieve commercial success through a mash-up of genres to create these upbeat bops that are hard to miss. To celebrate a year of ground-breaking musical accomplishments and reinvention like…

Spotify Turns 5 In Singapore: Learning More About Singaporeans’ Musical Tastes Daily

Spotify Turns 5 In Singapore: Learning More About Singaporeans’ Musical Tastes Daily

From aptly named playlist, Hazed & Confused (a pun on the Singapore haze season) to We Are Singapore (dedicated to Singapore’s National Day), Spotify has become quite the cornerstone of the local music scene – and to think we probably would not have fathomed as such, five years ago! Introduced to Singapore in 2013, Spotify came to be quite the fanfare of many – mostly as it was one of the first of its kind in new age music streaming services to enter the Southeast Asian region. Starting out with a small set of music in its digital catalogue, it…
Valentine’s Day As Told By Local Musicians

Valentine’s Day As Told By Local Musicians

Come February 14, some of us may be disappointed with a sad sight in town: it’s the time of the year where couples try the hardest to impress their partners on this special day with insta-worthy outfits, bouquets of roses, and trendy LED-lit helium balloons… the inexhaustible list goes on. Interestingly enough, romance happens to be quite an abstract concept – so much so, that we express or find these heart-wrenching emotions in music. This year, we have compiled our favourite love songs from our local musicians in a Spotify playlist. So gather your single ladies and men, and scream…
Chill Vibes: Kicking It Back With The 1975

Chill Vibes: Kicking It Back With The 1975

After pulling a Houdini on us and disappearing from the social media scene, The 1975 is back with their second album. Sure the album title is a mouthful, but “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” is an apt description of this beautiful masterpiece. 3 years after their debut self-titled album, this record proves that the wait was definitely worth it. As someone who prioritises Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift on my playlists, The 1975 isn’t at once an obvious choice in my music library. 10 minutes in to the album, however, and…
The One-Size-Fits-All O Level Results Playlist

The One-Size-Fits-All O Level Results Playlist

It’s that time of the year again. The culmination of 4 years or more of hard work to produce one single sheet of paper with mostly numbers printed on it. It’s the beginning of many dreaded Chinese New Year conversations and varying parental disappointment (because Asian parents are never satisfied). But it’s also the reward for many nights upon nights of intense mugging, the sacrificing of social lives and hobbies, the many hours of carpal tunnel-esque pain. That’s right – the O Level results are out. To put all the students who have collected their results in the right mood, we’ve carefully…
The DANamic.ORG Writers Pick the Best of 2015

The DANamic.ORG Writers Pick the Best of 2015

We’re just a few days shy of the new year, and what better way to look back at the year past than through music! 2015 has been an interesting year for the pop scene, with big-name acts (Adele, One Direction, Justin Bieber) all holding off their projects till the end of the year. The heavy fourth quarter has seen fresh faces (Alessia Cara, Halsey, Fetty Wap) emerge with relative ease in the earlier part of the year, with these newbies being thrust to the top of the summer charts. Even with its lukewarm first half, 2015 has turned out to be a pretty good year. In our…
