Music Monday | Yaeji — One More

Music Monday | Yaeji — One More

Hello my BAYOG luvlies~ I’ve returneddd! Okay, yeah sorry for skipping like a week. So if y’all aren’t on the BAYOG Discord server or follow me on Twitter, yo’ girl was affected by Hurricane Ida. I’m okies. It’s fortunate for me that it shifted away from my area. Unfortunately, I still had to deal with hella strong winds. While there was no major damage, I was without power and internet for the week. Hence me skipping out on posts. I’m hella behind, but I’ll do my best to get back to work!~ Anyway, I’m here now. We makin’ this a simple and quick post today~ Today’s Music Monday was a special request from Mykel! They requested that I cover Yaeji and her track ‘One More’~ I did recognize her and her music. I’m also always happy to oblige and put a spotlight on artists and tracks that aren’t as well known~ So we goin’ for indie and house music vibes today, y’all~

Yaeji, Kathy Yaeji Lee, is a Korean-American singer, DJ, and producer. Apparently, she’s based in Brooklyn, New York. Her sound and style is a mix of house music and hip-hop. It’s paired with her soft and mellow vocals in both Korean and English. Her music is super chill and gives this dream-like feeling. Again, she’s an indie artist, so I can’t say I know too much about her. Apparently, she was born in Flushing, Queens. She then moved around from new to Atlanta, and then to South Korea. She often switched to different international schools, briefly attended school in Japan, and then moved back to Korea. She then moved back to the States to study at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She studied conceptual art, East Asian studies, and graphic design. It was during this time that she embraced a hobby of DJing. She started DJing at house parties. After 2 years of DJing, she learned to make her own music. Yaeji debuted on WRCT, Carnegie Mellon’s radio station. After graduating in 2015, she moved back to New York. She delved into the music scene and Djing. She released “New York ’93”, her first single, in February 2016. It was issued under New York City label Godmode. She released her debut EP, also under Godmode, in March 2017. She also performed at the 2018 Coachella Festival. Yaeji’s [“Feel It Out”] and [“Drink I’m Sippin On”] have been released on 88rising’s YouTube channel, and amassed millions of views. I would say her most popular and well-known track would be [“Raingurl”], which is a pretty catchy dance/house track. I’m pretty sure I had discovered Yaeji from “Drink I’m Sippin On” and “Raingurl”. Although, my personal favorites from her would be “Raingurl” and “One More”. For me, she stands out in that she has such a unique sound and vibe. You already have this chill kind of vibe from the house influence in her music. She has super mellow, soft, kinda quiet, and slightly sweet vocals that makes her music have such a unique dreamy vibe and sound to it. Also, I approve of her using [Clazziquai during her DJ set] hehe~

Artist: Yaeji/이예지
Song: One More
Genre: House, Indie
Language: Korean, English
Origin: US
Release: November 2018

Alright, so let’s get down to it. Our featured track today is Yaeji’s ‘One More’. Again, it’s a house track with mellow vibes in both its sound and Yaeji’s vocals. It’s got this catchy kind of loop to it. I’ve noticed that the key to this track is this repetition that loops. Which goes with the track since it is called ‘One More’. Now my basic ass Koreaboo Korean is awful. However, if I’m correct… I’m pretty sure this song is about falling into this loop of enduring pain (from a past relationship?), coming to terms with it….ultimately getting stronger and moving on. I think. Again, not Korean… I only got 20 years of basic ass Koreaboo Korean. I love house music, although y’all know I especially love [deep house and tropical house]. Out of all of Yaeji’s tracks, I think this is one that I enjoy most. Just because it’s more of my kind of style and sound. I just love this chill, dreamy, almost ethereal vibe to it. It’s just good song to vibe to in general.

So much to do, so little time *internal crying*

That being said, I am basically hella behind everything I wanted to do…l…ol Originally, I also wanted to do 1-2 more summer tracks. However, my brain blanked. Yo’ girl literally just got power back the other day, and internet a few hours ago. Anyway, it may take me some time, but do expect some more non-music-related posts in the upcoming weeks. I thank y’all for your patience as I play catch up!~ I’m also pretty sure that BAYOG as a whole is trying to do more for the blog~ We’re looking to bring back the BAYOG Podcast~ So y’all can look forward to that. Anyway, I hope you have a great start to your day!~

Stay safe and healthy out there, y’all.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

STOP ASIAN HATE

As an Asian-American, racism, xenophobia, and hate crimes against AAPI isn’t new. It’s always been around. Unfortunately, misinformation and the pandemic has caused an insane surge in racism and xenophobia. There has also been an insane rise in hate crimes. More recently, we’re seeing a surge of hate crimes against the Asian elderly. Particularly in the California and New York areas. Some cases even leading to injuries and even death. The sad thing is that many cases do not get alot of attention, or are just looked passed. It breaks my heart and is cause for concern since it affects our community. Since some of the BAYOG Crew (including myself) are Asian-Americans ourselves, I wanted to use our small platform to help in anyway. Hate, racism, and xenophobia is an ugly thing. We’re friends, in the same community, and against the same social injustices. So be kind and let’s fight these things together.

You can also check the following for more information, ways to help, & to donate:

Please report hate crimes at Stop AAPI Hate:

Volunteer
You can see if your community has a volunteer chaperone or neighborhood watch/patrol program.
Some examples:

Volunteer at any other organizations that provide assistance to Asian-Americans; Particularly the elderly.
Some examples:

  • Heart of Dinner @ NYC, New York| https://www.heartofdinner.org/
    An organization that supports local businesses and provides meals and care packages to the Asian elderly in NYC.
