After much teasing, the first single for the partnership project “Mixxxture” has been released!
The track is thoughtfully titled “nosedive (기다렸다 가)” and we see the unprecedented collaboration between rapping duo Dynamic Duo and EXO’s main vocal Chen. The track was made public alongside a music video at midnight today (Tuesday, 24th January).
“Mixxxture” is the result of a partnership between the Dynamic Duo-founded label Amoebe Culture and South Korea’s leading record company Loen Entertainment. The project is similar to SM Station, in which it hopes to bring together individuals from different fields in order to produce never-before-seen collaborations. The artistes from Amoeba Culture will not contribute their vocals to the project, but will also be joining as producers for the upcoming music releases.
“nosedive” is a slow ballad and acts like a conversation between the rappers and vocalist. We hear Dynamic Duo rapping about going through the tedious motions of life, slowly losing hope and feeling helpless, but Chen’s soothing vocals encourages the listener to be strong as tough times will always pass, making way for better times.
The music video also complements the track, as it only shows an old man crisply dressed in a suit and top hat running freely through an open field. We also see him taking in the scenery at times and making music, enjoying the simpler things in life.
