SM STATION: Missed Gems



With Station Season 3 coming up next week here's some of the tracks that might have slipped through the cracks and deserve another listen!


DANCE/EDM

LDN NOISE x CHA JIYEON - MY SHOW [Season 1]




250 x SM x BANA - 두근두근 (Pit-A-Pat) 250 Remix [Season 1]




VINICIOUS - EASY [Season 2]

This song and the next one were both released around a time people were getting a bit burned out on station releases in Season 2, a lot of them were from artists not on the main roster and people were getting pretty vicious about it but this songs great.



IMLAY x SIK-K - DECALCOMANIE [Season 2]

Ditto ^^. IMLAY has does some remix work for SM and has a really interesting approach to songs.



AMBER x LUNA - LOWER [Season 2]

Amber and Luna have done a total of 3 Dance/EDM songs together for station releases.



BALLADS & CLASSICAL

The Barbarettes x Jan Jinyoung - Stranger's Love [Season 2]

A building ballad where the four voices are really the stars. Something a bit different from what The Barbarettes had put out at the time and I was dying for a live performance of this but it never came.



문정재 X PACE - Nikolai Kapustin - Piano Quintet No.1: 1st Mov. Allegro [Season 2]

It was weird watching people (not here) call themselves fans of SM or liking SM artists and then completely not even give the non-SM/non-korean artists a chance. This release hasn't even cleared 50K views...on the SM channel that's unheard of.



BAEKHYUN x K.WILL - The Day [Season 1]

The biggest song on the list but one that I found got glossed over a lot when talking about Baekhyun's duets. It's also one of the very few M/M duets for SM Station.




HOLIDAYS

LUNA x SHIN YOUNGJAE - IT'S YOU [Season 1]

An acoustic ballad released right around christmas time during season 1 and one of the sweetest MVs Station's ever done. those adorable toys T_T



NCT DREAM - JOY [Season 2]

Dream with a pop twist on Joy To The World.



ROCK/POP/R&B

JONGHYUN x HERITAGE - YOUR VOICE [Season 1]

Lovely Jjong had terrible luck with SM Station Releases. Both this and his station song from Season 2 had MVs scrapped and unreleased. So both his tracks kinda went under the radar. Inspiration is also fantastic (and hella 18+ lol) but his voice sounds so wonderful in this collab so it's on the list.


BADA x RYEOWOOK - COSMIC [Season 1]

Season 1 had a lot of wonderful collabs but this one stands out for a lot of reasons. It's a great song and Ryeowook is such an SES fan and talked about how great an experience it was. He enlisted right after it was released so we've never heard it live either.



 YOO YOUNGJIN x NCT TAEYONG - CURE [Season 2]




TRAX - ROAD [Season 1]

One of the few not metal/slayer-esque rock tracks put out during both station seasons so far. This is also the last TRAX release as a rockband since they've now rebranded as an EDM trio.



YURI x RAIDEN - ALWAYS FIND YOU [Season 2]



CHARLIE TAFT - LOVE LIKE YOU [Season 2]

With a bunch of writing credits on SM artist albums Charlie's solo release could have fit right in on The Perfect Velvet.



Verdine White X Stanley Clarke X Myron Mckinley Trio - 'Man In the Mirror' [Season 2]

Literally some of the most legendary instrumentalists and some SM fans completely skipped over the release because it didn't feature any SM artists. It's completely instrumental and was part of the MJ tribute that SME worked on and hosted the livestream for.



PENOMENCO - HUNNIT [Season 2]

Released about a year before SME publicly had aquired Million Market.

I think a lot of people (not here) sort of lost the plot with season 2 and didn't fully embrace a lot of the experimental/non-SM artists releases, they were especially rude to the MJ tribute artists. Hopefully for Season 3 people will approach it with a more open mind.

Any from the non-big gun artists I missed? Or your faves in general?
