Soul in Seoul

University Press of Mississippi

Mainstream Korean hip-hop performers cite the R&B tradition through sampling and the use of R&B vocals and enhance it through Korean musical strategies that mix multiple genres with hip-hop elements and the use of live instrumentation. Some hip-hop acts emulate the tradition by engaging in “old school” music and using R&B vocals, while others include remixes, samples of non-R&B genres, and the use of non-R&B vocalists. Mainstream Korean hip-hop acts cite limiting and liberating hip-hop tropes in music videos as well. Korean hip-hop artists participate in a globalized R&B tradition by promoting its music aesthetics.

Keywords:   R&B vocals, Hip hop, Sampling, Music aesthetics, Live instrumentation
