Second Spin: 10 Tracks to Celebrate 10 Years of Clazziquai
Second Spin puts the spotlight on songs that have remained out of it. It’s the chance to showcase some of the unpromoted tracks that are overshadowed by the signature songs in the featured artists’ discography.
The Clazziquai Project, or simply Clazziquai is now no stranger to music fans who like their sound trips infused with a little of everything. Clazziquai’s music is best described as a fusion, with an electronic base that is heavily influenced by some jazz, house, bossa, and lounge.
Having recently released their sixth regular album “Blink,” Clazziquai celebrates its 10 years in the industry. Vocalists Alex and Horan and DJ Clazzi, who make up Clazziquai (Alex’s sister Christina was also a vocalist in earlier releases) are now staples of the music business, but are widely recognized to have had indie roots. Clazziquai is an oft-quoted example of a successful indie crossover while remaining true to its distinct style and sound.
Throughout their career, Clazziquai, as a band or the individual members, have been growing their contributions to the music industry by coming out with releases as solo artists, forming their own project bands and collaborations and most especially, remaining a staple favorite in many film and drama soundtracks.
It’s been a decade since a very youthful Lee Jun Ki won hearts, starring in Clazziquai’s “Sweety,” and nearly so since the song “She Is” became synonymous with the drama it was featured in, “My Name Is Kim Sam Soon.” Soothing, sentimental or snappy, Second Spin celebrates Clazziquai’s 10 years with 10 of their buried tracks in their prolific career.
