Favorite underground artists
Who are your favorite underground artists?
(By "underground" I mean those artists who have released none to few albums and have received little media recognition.)
Also known as Wuno since 2016, Woo Taewoon is a former member of the K-Pop band SPEED. He released a full album "Doin' A Freefall" in 2015 and released 3 singles in 2016. He also wrote the lyrics to the Girl's Day song "Ring My Bell".
Taewoon has so much potential and he works behind the scenes so much but he rarely ever gets recognition. Please check him out! His latest single is "Copy Ma Lyrics" which is very different compared to his other songs:
DA￦N has been on fire lately! He's released a ton of great tracks this month.
I feel like BiNTAGE is on the rise as well. Other than these two, I like Summer Soul, Rheehab, SLCHLD, OCEAN, Bevy Maco, Channel 23, and Yungmoodmedia to name a few.
PS: Big fan of yours, Lena. 90% of the time I find a new artist on Soundcloud, I see that HiphopKR already follows them
While I'm not sure whether I'd call Wuno "underground," I agree that he's not getting much recognition. Among his songs I enjoyed 'Fine Apple', it had this light, cool atmosphere that seemed to fit his rapping well imo.
Gosh, yes, the underground R&B scene is full of gems. SLCHLD, Rheehab, BiNTAGE, they're all so talented. Which reminds me I forgot JUNNY. He could be singing nothing but cusswords and I'd be all over it. lol.
PS: Likewise, Daniel, fan of yours too. 🙂
