CHIT CHAT: DJ Soulscape

DJ Soulscape 作为首尔当下音乐场景的代表人物之一,创办了360 Sounds imprint。深受80年代hip-hop音乐的影响,从小在父母收藏的soul灵魂乐黑胶唱片的熏陶下成长,再到音乐工程的求学背景,使得这位音乐人的涉足广泛。目前Soulscape不仅是韩国首尔著名的Cakeshop的驻场DJ,也曾与 Young Guru, Illa J 和 Lefto 等国际知名音乐人同台演出,他的现场set是一场包容K-POP和各类经典与前卫电子音乐的交响曲。

DJ Soulscape is a legend on the 1s and 2s, and head honcho of the 360 Sounds imprint. Deeply influenced by ’80s hip-hop, his parents extensive collection of soul vinyl, and his engineering background, the musician is a culmination of diversity and contrast. A regular at the Seoul institution Cakeshop, he’s shared the decks with the likes of Young Guru, Illa J, and Lefto, to name a few. Soulscape composes and arranges electronic symphonies reminiscent of K-pop, yet innovative in style and genre.
