SEOUL, June 16 (Yonhap) – BamBam, the adaptable Thai rapper-artist from disbanded K-pop kid band GOT7, has ventured out as an independent craftsman with his new collection “Strip,” which he composed.
The six-track collection, delivered late Tuesday, is his first collection as an independent artist after individuals from the septet left their name JYP Entertainment in January following a seven-year spell. BamBam has since endorsed with Abyss Company, which oversees other Korean behaves like Sunmi and Urban Zakapa.
In an online media occasion late Tuesday, BamBam said “Strip” denotes another part in his melodic profession and expected that it will show a greater amount of his tone.
“The focal point of the collection was showing my start as an independent craftsman,” he said. “You may have seen, yet ‘Strip’ is a wordplay for the English word ‘renewed’ and furthermore conveys the importance of tying another bunch – like a lace.”
Having been essential for a very close band for a very long time and more while including his student days, BamBam said he had for a long while been itching to show his own shading one day.
“I’ve composed my own tunes and thought that it’d be incredible in the event that I could show individuals my shading one day. While I’ve delivered some independent material abroad, this is my first performance project here so I needed to show this is who BamBam is.”
However, the progress from being an individual from a gathering to a person on his own elaborate a great deal of soul-looking, going from issues like what he could achieve as an independent craftsman to how he will perform in front of an audience.
“I considered whether I’m adequately skilled and whether what melodies – other than rapping – I could show individuals, regardless of whether they will like my voice and what sort of execution I will put in front of an audience alone. I didn’t need the stage to appear to be vacant and simultaneously still convey my energy,” he said, saying he has “took in a great deal” from the experience.
For the independent EP, BamBam partook in the vast majority of the collection, including making and composing verses for the principle track “Lace,” just as “Look So Fine” and “Air.” The style and class of the tunes differ from hip-jump to R&B, however, Bambam said he didn’t ponder these limits as long as the melody is entertaining.
“A few groups may believe that the (flexibility) of the collection might be pointless in building my shading, however, I really need to be a vocalist who can pull off tunes with various styles,” he said.
“And keeping in mind that there are beautician contrasts, they’re all good times. Regardless of whether it’s a dim melody, I trust it’s good times. I particularly like fun tunes during a show,” said the rapper-vocalist who is known for his friendly and energetic character.
Truth be told, he said this radiant personality is the thing that has kept him going in the K-pop industry, which is known for its relentless contest and burdensome pre-debut preparing.
“I’ve been prepared on controlling my affections for quite a while since I (entered the business) at an early age,” the 24-year-old said. “There have been all kinds of challenges. Yet, I generally incline toward glad endings. Indeed, even on terrible occasions, I attempt to proceed onward as opposed to being discouraged. I think everybody commits errors and gaining from them are acceptable life exercises.”
Going ahead, BamBam said he desires to be more settled in South Korea, a country where he has spent almost 50% of his life.
“Being perceived as significant but instead of being notable, I trust that individuals of various ages will make the most of my music and anticipate paying attention to it. That is the point at which I figure I will feel perceived.”
The artist likewise voiced his affection for K-pop, which he said was what made him love music in any case.
“It’s the way I’ve come to cherish music. Because of K-pop, I’ve come to like singing and rapping. I think the force of K-pop is that it can unite individuals and defeat language obstructions. It’s an enchanting (industry) that has a great deal of (fascinating variables) like music, culture, and association among fans and craftsmen.”
