Seoul Train’s upcoming single “Never Left” will be released soon via RouteNote.
Known for his work with TrackAddicts (CMG/WeFunk) and E1-Ten (Wallboomers) and no stranger to confront societal injustice, Seoul Train is now candidly sharing more of his own story.
Having had bad eyesight since birth, things went further awry in 2017, rendering him legally blind and unable to hold on to his job. Unwilling to put his life on hold, he went back to uni and got his second Master’s degree – an MMUS in Ethnomusicology from SOAS.
After releasing “Yellow Peril” and the “Pandemic EP” Seoul Train is now back with “Never Left”, showing that no matter how the odds are stacked against him, he faces them head on and ultimately comes out on top.
The beat is a throwback to the early 2000s, an important and formative period for him, inspired by the sights and sounds of New York City.
“Never Left” will be available on all major platforms. Watch this space!
Seoul Train’s next single, “Break The Silence (B.T.S.)”, coming soon, is a response to the silence surrounding the racism and violence against Asians. The silence MUST be broken if we are to move forward.
This year marks the first year after Seoul Train’s previous single “Yellow Peril” dropped. At the time, there was an alarming trend of racism against Asians and he wanted to make a stand.
One year on and this alarming trend has now exploded and escalated into ongoing assaults and murders, yet we still only see the very tip of the iceberg. Many of us have started to rise up and our voices are making their way across the globe. But it is still met with silence. Deafening silence. This must end now.
Please support the existing movements like Stop AAPI Hate, #Washthehate, #iamnotavirus and all the others. We stand united, but we are not united as one yet. Let’s not splinter our efforts, let’s really come together and counter the violence by increasing protection, improving education and even simply watching each other’s backs.
We will rise. We are not going anywhere, get used to us!
Break The Silence (B.T.S.) will be out soon on all major platforms, including Naver, Bugs and Melon in South Korea.
