It’s Out! MV for Epik High – Breakdown

The MV for Breakdown is out… and well, it’s different.

I wouldn’t recommend the faint of heart to watch it. The members get beaten to a pulp, not a pretty sight.

The three members are rebels(?), if I understand correctly, and some guys in suits watch them get tortured (while maliciously enjoying it, I may add). In the final scene, they are placed in chairs, ready for execution I presume – but, well I won’t spoil it for you…

Again, Tukutz spitting blood, Tablo’s head getting dumped in the toliet – not nice things to watch…

Please take me seriously – NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. Some of the scenes can be disturbing.

Again, props to Epik High, only they can produce something as different as this. And don’t get me wrong it’s not just pointless violence – in fact the violence can only be seen to be a montage of the emotion in the song…

So much angst…

Watch it here:

Oh, and they’re wearing the same red-and-black suits which they wore to the Dream concert…

DJ Tukutz looking cool at the turntable…!

Epik High – Breakdown (Repackage)

NAME : Breakdown (Pieces Part One Repackage)

ARTIST : Epik High

RELEASE DATE : 11th June, 2008

GENRE : Hip-Hop/Fusion

LANGUAGE : Korean

Wow! There was absolutely no sign of this coming…

So, basically it consists of the entire Pieces Part One album, along with a remix of Love Love Love, an upbeat hip-hop/electronica fusion-of-sorts track, which gained much popularity as part of their fourth album – Remapping the Human Soul.

TRACK LIST:

01 Breakdown
02 Love Love Love (Astronica Remix) NEW!

03 Be
04 서울, 1:13 AM (Short Piece)(Seoul, 1:13 AM)
05 One (Feat. JiSun)
06 연필깎이 (feat. Kebee)(Pencil Sharpener)
07 Girl (Feat. JinBo)
08 Slave (Short Piece)
09 The Future (Feat. Yankie)
10 20 Fingers (Short Piece) (Feat. DJ Friz)
11 Ignition (Feat. Na Yoon Kwon)
12 Eight By Eight (Feat. Dynamic Duo, Dok2, Double K, TBNY)
13 Decalcomanie
14 Icarus Walks (Short Piece)
15 낙화 (落花) (Fallen Blossoms)
16 우산 (feat. 윤하) (Younha) (Umbrella)
17 당신의 조각들 (feat. 지선) (Jisun) (Your Pieces)
18 B-side 01 : Breakdown (Supreme Mix)
19 B-side 02 : One (Planet Shiver Remix)

So really, there is only one new song – the Astronica *cool name* Remix of the Epik High hit ‘Love Love Love’ – which means only one song for me to rate. Anyway, the remix adds stronger beats to the song, giving it a techno-ish feel. This makes it right at home in Pieces, Part One, given that the general feel of the album is as such… I would give it a 9/10.

And, the cover – random, just like Pieces Part One…

Watch the MV for Love Love Love (Original) here:

With English subtitles. By the way, the song features YoongJin of Casker, an indie electronica group (whose music I highly recommend). The MV posted above has English subtitles.

Lyrics:

밤 12시 술 취해 지친 목소리
새벽 2시 차갑게 꺼진 전화기
아무도 내 맘을 모르죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
아파도 계속 반복하죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
있나요 사랑해본 적
영화처럼 첫 눈에 반해본 적
전화기를 붙들고 밤새본 적
세상에 자랑해본 적
쏟아지는 비속에서
기다려본 적
그를 향해 미친듯이
달려본 적
몰래 지켜본적 미쳐본적
다 보면서도 못본 척
있겠죠 사랑해본 적
기념일 때문에 가난해본 적
잘하고도 미안해 말해본 적
연애편지로 날 새본 적
가족과의 약속을 미뤄본 적
아프지말라 신께 빌어본 적
친굴 피해본 적 잃어본 적
가는 뒷모습 지켜본 적
can’t stop love
미친듯 사랑했는데 왜
정말 난 잘해줬는데 왜
모든걸 다 줬었는데
you got me going crazy
can’t stop love
죽도록 사랑했는데 왜
내 몸과 맘을 다 줬는데
모든걸 잃어버렸는데 어떡해
아무도 내 맘을 모르죠
I can’t stop

Love Love Love
아파도 계속 반복하죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
있나요 이별해본 적
빗물에 화장을 지워내본 적
긴 생머리 잘라내본 적
끊은 담배를 쥐어본 적
혹시라도 마주칠까
자릴 피해본 적
보내지도 못할 편지 적어본 적
술에 만취되서 전화 걸어본 적
여보세요 입이 얼어본 적
있겠죠 이별해본 적
사랑했던 만큼 미워해본 적
읽지도 못한 편지 찢어본 적
잊지도 못할
전화번호 지워본 적
기념일을 혼자 챙겨본 적
사진들을 다 불태워본 적
이 세상에 모든 이별 노래가
당신의 얘길꺼라 생각해본 적
can’t stop love
미친듯 사랑했는데 왜
정말 난 잘해줬는데 왜
모든걸 다 줬었는데
you got me going crazy
can’t stop love
죽도록 사랑했는데 왜
내 몸과 맘을 다 줬는데
모든걸 잃어버렸는데 어떡해
아무도 내 맘을 모르죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
아파도 계속 반복하죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love

바보처럼 울고 또 술에 취하고
친구를 붙잡고 그 사람을 욕하고
시간이 지나고 또 술에 취하고
전화기를 붙잡고 say love
아무도 내 맘을 모르죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
아파도 계속 반복하죠
I can’t stop Love Love Love
아무도 내 맘을 모르죠
사실은 당신만 모르죠
아파도 계속 반복하죠
이러다 언젠가 다시 마주치죠

Epik High – One (Live/Band Ver.) – Madame B Salon

Epik High recently performed their hit song ‘One’ (from Pieces, Part One) on Madame B Salon (Ep. 9). The single released later included previously released tracks from Epik High and the Buga Kingz, performed live.

Here is the track list:

1. One (Band Ver.) – Epik High
2. Girl – Epik High
3. Break down – Epik High
4. 싸이렌 (Siren) – Buga Kingz
5. Tic Tac Toe – Buga Kingz

The live version of One is highly recommended. Only one minus though : since the songs are recorded live, there is an almost-continuous background score of screaming fans. I just wish Epik High would re-record and release the band version of ‘One’. Also, you can hear DJ Tukutz rapping here, which sounds pretty much OK… a bit awkward though. That’s fine, considering he’s not a rapper anyway, and that I seem to be comparing him to Tablo and Mithra all the time, which is really not fair on my part.

Here’s a 1:30 min preview of the tracks (I couldn’t find the live performance of One, I will post it here when I do. Right now all I see when I search for Madame B Salon on youtube is SNSD…) This is NOT a performance, only a preview of the tracks (only audio, no video)

I hope to see the Band version of One in Pieces, Part two :D…

Edit: I will upload the Band Ver. of One in the Box. Done! You can preview the song in the green box.

I also liked the live version of Girl (also from Pieces, Part One). Look out for it in the single!
