Newcomer Don Malik from daze alive music who is receiving a lot of attention recently and veteran producer Mild Beats have released the MV for ‘About Muse’, the title track of their EP ‘탯줄’ [The Navel String].
On the track ‘About Muse’, a beat that faithfully represents old school hiphop as a mix of a simple bassline with wide scaled drums and a funky brass sample meets Don Malik’s rap and lets you feel ‘heavy fun’. Don Malik thinks of himself as a historical successor of hiphop and with the track he celebrates the pioneers of hiphop music that he grew up with, using the hook “내가 태어난 해, 같이 태어난 Groove” [The groove that was born in the same year I was born]. Mild Beats as a veteran producer and Don Malik as a newcoming lyricist clearly show the aspect of ‘heavy fun’ on this track. In its music video, one hiphop kid pictures himself advancing as [rapper] Don Malik of daze alive music. It was directed by Changgook (창국) who already worked with Don Malik on his mixtape’s track ‘WGSP’ before.
