Check out our translation of Dingo Freestyle‘s September interview with Just Music CEO/artist Swings, who talks about his latest album, his relationship with BewhY, the next label compilation album and more.
Back in September 2016, shortly after Swings returned to the scene and dropped his latest album Mood Swings II (Part 3: Psychotherapy), Dingo Freestyle interviewed the artist and touched on several topics. Watch the video and read our translation below!
THE NEW ALBUM
“I tried to illustrate my current state of mind, as well the notion of becoming healthier mentally. My album is essentially a magnifying glass looking into my psychological state.”
NEW ALBUM WITH?
“I worked with Doplamingo, and as always with GRAY – he gave me two of his tracks. Also, for the first time I worked with Primeboi a 21-year old producer who is growing in the current hip hop and pop scene. As you know, BewhY is quite popular these days… I tried maximizing my opportunity with him by featuring him in my title track.” *smiles*
“Yes, I’ve always thought about it. I tried recruiting him, but he wants to remain independent… but I don’t think that will last long. I believe that he’ll come to us eventually… We actually had a Just Music label meeting about attending his church on Sundays just to recruit him.” *laughs*
AOMG ALSO WANTS BEWHY…
“Yes. I’ll say this right now: AOMG is cool, but I’ve known BewhY since he started from the bottom. I featured him in my mixtape three times, and I’ve posted on SNS (Instagram, Facebook) that one day he will blow up… BewhY, if you’re watching this, don’t forget who watched you since the beginning.”
SWINGS’ BEST 3 SONGS
“Firstly, my new single “Your Soul” is in my TOP 3… with a solid story telling like my track “I’ll Be There.” Next, my number one favorite track is “Are You Listening? (듣고있어?).”
EX G-FRIEND FROM “ARE YOU LISTENING?”
“No, never [did she contact me since we broke up]. I wrote in my lyrics, ‘Good girl,. I’m proud of you’ for not contacting me by changing her contact information. I still have a lot of respect for her. I don’t talk to her, but I hear news about her from people.”
SWINGS AND PORK CUTLET
“The key is the curry, which needs to be delicious in order for it to mix well with the pork. I’ve been to many restaurants, but the pork cutlet with bad curry are not very good as a whole.”
THE NEW COMPILATION ALBUM?
“Just Music’s second compilation album will be titled Our Effect (우리효과). In my view, the album will likely drop late-November or December. The album is produced completely by Giriboy.”
MEANING OF ‘OUR EFFECT’?
“Nochang and I came up with the album title while flipping through the dictionary. The title has two meanings: the first is ‘our effect.’ To be truthful, I can’t remember the second meaning at this time. I’ll have to ask Nochang at home.”
NEW COMPILATION WITH NEW MEMBERS?
“Yes. There will be track(s) featuring the entire roster of Just Music.”
