First up is this smooth and soulful production which combines the best of Epik High’s Tablo, Eric Nam and Gallant. Sail away into a deep mellow of beats and exceptional feeling.

Nothing beats Zion. T’s vocals and Beenzino’s witty rap in this wonderful apology-to-your-bae song. Playful and upbeat, you’d want to curl up in your favourite pyjamas on a Sunday night and just bop your head to it while blocking off the upcoming Monday blues.

Let’s take it down a notch. For those in a seulpeo (sad)state of mind, this one’s for you. Dynamic Duo does a wonderful collab with EXO’s Chen in this production. Get your fix of deeply felt rap lyrics and milky light vocals right here.

Dean has done it again. Smooth vocals and an on point rhythmic sense, you’ll want to fade out and just go into a dreamy state of mind. Synths gives it a far out into space vibe and who doesn’t want to chill with that? Talking about reliving pasts, this one’s for those caught in between.

Last but not least, this isn’t exactly a new release but SISTAR’s Hyolyn (Hyorin) collaboration with Far East Movement in this Electronic Pop track wonder has got to be given the acknowledgement. Vocals that go amazingly with a laid back accompaniment melts away your weekend with ease.
