허밍어반스테레오 미니앨범 '아무것도 아닌 것들의 기억, xxxx'

침묵을 깨고 2008년 11월 발표되는 이번 음반은, 달달한 음악의 대표주자로의 인식을 달리, 기존에 발표되었던 음악들과는 다소 거리를 둔 앞으로 허밍 어반 스테레오의 음악적 방향성을 제시하는 음반으로 탄생했다. '요조'와 '허밍걸'의 듀엣곡인 '소피 마르소'를 제외하고는 제법 무게감있는 일렉트로닉과 하우스의 음악적 기조를 이어가지만, 어느 부분에서는 다소 어둡다. 더불어, 이전 앨범들과 같이 앨범 전 과정을 손수 프로듀싱해 이전의 음반들보다 훨씬 더 완성도 높은 음반으로 심혈을 기울여 만든 음반이 바로 본 작이다.

'변화 혹은 미래'

화려한 색깔과 도시 내음이 물씬 풍기는 세련된 일렉트로닉 사운드, 일렉트로닉 음악의 대중화, 트렌드를 이끌어가는 뮤지션, 세상에서 가장 달달한 음악의 대표주자..이 모든 수식어의 주인공인 허밍 어반 스테레오. 그렇지만, 이 앨범은 허밍 어반 스테레오를 사랑한 음악 팬들의 인식 속에는 없는 새로운 지형처럼 다가올 것이다. 그가 앞으로 나갈 방향성을 제시하는 음반으로 지금껏 '허밍 어반 스테레오'가 가장 시도하고자 했던 음악, 더불어 자유로운 느낌들을 가장 많이 살려 내실있게 채워진 음반이다.

특히나, 이번 음반은 '허밍 어반 스테레오'가 설립한 레이블 '왈츠 소파'에서 발표하는 첫 번째 음반으로 더욱 의미가 깊다. 지금까지의 음악적 활동을 토대로 본인이 프로듀싱한 음반들과 음악 작업들이 '왈츠 소파'를 통해 속속 발표될 예정이라 더 기대가 된다.

Cool Disco and Soulful Lounge Electronic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
[CD time : 24’19 - 7 tracks]

Humming Urban Stereo is fronted by music electronic syncopate Jeereen Lee who writes, arranges and computer programs various blends of disco lounge electronic dance music, and with a good seven track set of soul, disco, funk electronic songs here with various female guest singers such as Uta and Shina-E.

Although the best musical description for this mini album would be for its strong disco style of late 90s Jung Hwa Uhm era techno dance [tracks 3-6], the music also feature an eclectic blend of jazz, funk and lounge, with additional experimentation with ‘Ayurbeda Swimming’ [track 7], to contrast the 90s synth pop disco sensibility. But ‘XXXX’ features some really good dance floor disco pop, especially title song ‘XXXX’ [track 4] with its infectious stomp electronic bass drum beat, and disco funk favoring to make for one killa dance floor song here. Other techno soul beats come care of ‘Sophie Marceau’ [track 6] ‘Electronic Girl’ [track 5] and ‘No No No’ [track 3] with similar funky disco groves and soulful singing.

The initial two opening tracks however are quite contrasting, with a more lounge, jazz easy listening style that wouldn’t be out of place in a mysterious French romance movie. ‘La Barrosa 14horas’ [track 1] for instance begins with a bossa nova beat and single trumpet jazz rhythm with added subtle electronic sounds. ‘Fetish- piel’ [track 2] also features a bossa nova beat with (like a few other songs) some cute female vocalizing and sensual lyrics, that fazes into the albums first hint of the disco beat. The final track ‘Ayurbeda Swimming’ [track 7] is a gentle but more oddly pleasant slow instrumental beat, that closes the album.

Still, if you love 80s electronic pop, the sounds of Jung Hwa Uhm’s upbeat type 90’s Korean disco, you’ll certainly like ‘No, No, No’, ‘XXXX’ ‘Sophie Marceau’ and ‘Electronic Girl’ (is this related to the film ‘A Girl with a Synthesizer’?) here, and, well, Humming Urban Stereo’s largely electronic disco album really. It as a fair bit of eclecticism about it, that fulfills the dance spirit with the additional jazz funk ambience amidst the disco soul. If you want some easy going sophistication in your dance collection, Humming Urban Stereo’s ‘XXXX’ is a good quality buy.
