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

'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

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

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

Good lyric!

kolakube (Ross), Thursday, 28 December 2017 00:07 (eleven months 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.

"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.

She just put out this Charli XCX remix, very low-key and didn't impress at first but is really growing on me after a couple of listens
