Ensemble Mik Nawooj
You might think that I’m crazy enough for looking for something that slightly not so important 🙂 but its my hobby, looking for gems. There’s this collective called Ensemble Mik Nawooj, founded in 2005 the collective is unique since they combined both classical music, and hip hop songs. I found them through this YouTube channel of Upworthy, so I decided to check it out.
The band composed of JooWan Kim the pianist, MCs/lyricists Do D.A.T. and Sandman and surprisingly the song is not that out dated when you guys listen to them. You guys probably need to get out from the heavy, fast, deep, dark beats that you often hear from the televisions or radios. It’s kind of help you out to think outside the box as well, that not all classics are boring 🙂
First Song is really great, the piano is really giving the contrast of the rap from the MCs, but in a way its just like when you poured coffee with a milk. In a way its kind of inspired me to learn music again.. do you agree ? I need to show my mum about this band, that not all hip hop musics got that dark vibes.. 🙂
They also got this C.R.E.A.M. by Wu Tan Clan and re-styled it to their own..I think its dope they proofing that not all technologies are cool, even the traditional music tools are actually can be cool and the beat maker program. I think at this point talents and skills is the most important thing. To be honest right now I’m kind of looking for this kind of group, where I can put my effort as a team, to be honest being a rapper is still one of my dream. Although in Indonesia there are some rappers that just rapping for attentions I could say, but personally I think rap is also talking about a positive message to the audiences.
Its really hard to listen to the OG style of hip hop on the present days, because the kind of beats thats on trend right now is totally different, but they really restyled it and presentable to the younger audience today 🙂
I think this band also solidified that being a pianist can be swag and cool, so thus the operas singer 🙂 they show us that no matter what your position is you can be cool, and look awesome. I do think that this days people are way to judge mental towards the appearance 🙁 and they just more focus on the eye catching stages, but actually passions and unique-ness aI think are also one of the most important keys 🙂 So please check them out 🙂
