After a long hiatus, JINBO makes his return with the follow-up to his last EP, [KRNB]. His upcoming EP, [KRNB2], is a compilation of old and new Korean classics, reinvented for the modern listener.
The Cut was able to sit in with Jinbo during a few jam sessions with contributors to the album. Guests such as Hoody, G Soul, and Sumin, accompanied by Docskim on piano, join the sessions doing songs of their own and covers as well.

Each song featured on the [KRNB2] album was remade—was revisited and revised—with the current global generation in mind.
When asked about his obsession with remakes, Jinbo responded that it’s actually not an obsession at all. Over a decade after he debuted, he chose to continue the theme started by KRNB (an album he produced and performed, mixed and mastered alone), because he wanted to chase away the loneliness he felt early on in his career.
It’s a loneliness that followed Jinbo extensively throughout his career, but he was finally able to collaborate with fellow Korean R&B singers (both concrete and up-and-coming) in the current Korean hip hop scene, creating happier music for his fans and happier memories for himself.Behind The Songs( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )Source: THE CUT

| giantspirit3I was a bit slow in finishing this so the album has already been posted here to listen to in full, it's available on Spotify & iTunes. The Cut also have a podcast currently unsubbed but if you can understand Korean it's here.
The documentary is lovely - Jinbo speaks so highly of everyone, you can feel their passion & there's just so much talent. I love that he stalked JYP to get him to listen to the TT cover!
