whistle while you twurk

MIDI MONDAY: Ying Yang Twins - Whistle While You Twerk

So my beloved followers, we missed a week. Actually we really missed a week and a half and for that we apologize. You see we went on vacation to the blue ridge mountains and while there many amazing things happened. Howerver lets just talk about one though. After having driven 40 minutes from the city of Roanoke into a small town of 432 people we drove down a country road with no lights. We arrived at our destination at the home of a man, who’s name I won’t mention, who my companion and I consider legendary and seeing him for the first time alone was enough to make it worth the trip. However we sat in this man’s front room with a group of recent high school grads and other assorted (legendary) people and we smoked weed and chugged Mad Dog. And there we sat talking to all these wonderful people about pressing matters like Toby Keith and the lack of country music stations in nyc. And in this front room, on this very warm July day, with the stars outside like I had never seen, one of the young ladies got up and attempted to teach us all the magic of how to twurk. And as she lowered her ass to the ground in an enchanting rhythmic pattern I realized that my god this was exactly where i needed to be tonight. She twurked her way right into my heart and into the hearts of all of us there. So now having heard this I hope you understand why we were gone and why it’s okay. And maybe you can forgive us and enjoy this Midi file. It’s good to be back. 
 

BLACKPINK is featured in Rolling Stone’s article of 10 New Artists You Need to Know: September 2016

Blackpink

Sounds Like: A perfect marriage of K-pop and A-town trap

For Fans of: CL, 2NE1, Ariana Grande and Fifth Harmony’s harder moments

Why You Should Pay Attention: “K-trap” may not be an actual genre but Blackpink, YG Entertainment’s new girl group, are on the verge of breaking with a unique fusion of bubblegum pop and hard-hitting hip-hop. Each member of the group underwent a rigorous training process anywhere from four to six years before the group debuted this summer. The group had been teased over the years before finally releasing the two-song Square One EP. “I couldn’t believe it; it was such a long awaited debut that it was hard to tell if it was all a dream or not,” says member Jisoo. “However, once we did debut I also felt a sort of emptiness in my heart thinking that I’ve reached my goals. But now I have even bigger dreams to fill that emptiness. We’ve accomplished the first step by debuting, but I’d also like to achieve other bigger goals soon.”

Singing and rapping in both English and Korean, the bilingual group each grew up on as much of a fusion of genres as their music displays, with each member citing everyone from Lianne La Havas to Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande as influences. “I feel like we are well-prepared for any music style and dancing,” Jennie says of their eclectic backgrounds. “We have a strong color as a group, which we will reveal through our music.”

They Say: Blackpink credits their executive producer Yang with their name. “We considered so many different names just like any other group,” Jisoo explains. “Most of those names were created by Yang and Blackpink was also created by him. He always wanted us to show our different colors at all times, which is why Blackpink was chosen.” 


“We had many names over the years until we officially became Blackpink,” Jennie adds. “I feel like Yang wanted to make a name that represents our two strong features, which is being a strong performer on stage but also our natural selves off stage, just like how black and pink are two opposite, contrasting colors.”

Hear for Yourself: All low-end boom and high-end tweets, the infectious “Whistle” feels like perfect pop update of the similarly chirpy Ying Yang Twins classic “Whistle While You Twurk.”
