Give It To Me (Areia Remix) – Sistar

August 26, 2013

Hi folks! I am a new author here, haptic! I have been given the opportunity to contribute to this blog and will focus almost exclusively on the genre of Kpop. Kpop, or Korean pop, is a stylized genre of music which encompasses not only their own unique style of pop, but rock, rap, hip hop, electro, and more recently, dubstep themes as well. They’re also widely known for the intricate choreography showcased in their music videos. So for those of you who don’t mind a bit of a language barrier, I hope to show you some gems from the Kpop world. In an attempt to keep with the theme of this blog, I’ll try to stick to remixes and (if I can find some) mashups. There’s only a handful of prominent remixers in the community though, so names will start repeating themselves eventually. That being said, since most of my knowledge is on the main groups themselves and not on the remixers, I will also be splashing in some original (nonremixed) reviews here and there.

 

Sistar

 

For our first review, we’ll be looking at a remix from Areia Creations for the song “Give It To Me” by Sistar. The original song is the title track from the group’s second album, which shares its name. Areia Creations is a growing team that produces some of the finest electro and trance remixes I have had the pleasure of hearing. Their unique sound can turn any track into a club worthy song, and the latest Sistar release is no exception. What originally went along to stable piano beat and felt very much like a musical song (think Moulin Rouge, though that might be the MV imprinting its visuals on me) was transformed into something more upbeat and dance worthy. It still manages to retain the strong emotions conveyed through the lyrics. This song is about a woman who simply wants love. She cries every night yearning for love from a man who left her. Check out the MV below for a complete translation of the lyrics if you’re interested, just make sure captions are on and set to English! Overall this is a great remix and an enjoyable song, even if you haven’t heard the original. If you want to support Sistar or check out some other songs from the album, you can purchase them over at iTunes. I hope you all enjoy!
