Many thanks to Boycold for doing this interview! You can read the Korean translated interview here. Make sure to check out my review of the EP he produced for Sik-K here.
Hello, I am YELOWS MOB Producer, BOYCOLD.
I usually produce diverse types of music styles, so it’s difficult to categorize it into a single genre, but I pursue music that combines vintage and trendy sounds. My greatest influence for my career has always been Groovy Room, who I’ve been with since I first started music. We live together and talk about a lot of things together everyday. I get inspired by many different artists, but in the end, I think it’s my environment that makes me into who I am.
I think it’s trying to keep up with the new trends and music styles coming out daily. I worry a lot about whether the music I’m making is sophisticated or not, and I think a lot of my stress stems from that.
I’ve known the members of YELOWS MOB for a while now, but it was when I collaborated on SIK-K’s album H.A.L.F that I officially joined the crew.
Even before BeWhy was on Show Me the Money 5, we traded beats and worked together on songs. After C Jamm heard the song that I worked on for BewhY, I got a call from C Jamm and we also started to work together. Soon after, they both went on SMTM5 and after the show ended, I got the opportunity to work on their collab single. It was a pretty natural process. Even though this is my most well-known song, I still feel like I could have done better but unfortunately we were tight on time and had to urgently work on this.
Recently, I worked with SIK-K on a song called ‘H1ghr Gang’ on his album BOYCOLD. I like that song the best.
PNB Rock – ‘Feelins’, because it’s both emotional and hype.
I like to watch movies. There’s a game called OVERWATCH I like playing. Besides that, not much. I’m in the studio almost every day.
Seeing other Korean artists spread their content globally is like positive reinforcement for me. Even though I released an album in Korean, recently, other international artists have also reached out for collaborations. Because of that, it definitely feels like artists globally have a larger interest in Korean music than ever before. If there is a good opportunity, I would like to collaborate with artists outside of my country.
There are not many things you can do by yourself. I get inspired by the great people around me. It’s very important to have people around that have a positive influence on you.
