It didn’t take long for Yves V to finish the “Bop Bop!”
“Not long at all! The original track has so much finesse but because it was, of course, a super pop original, it was important for me to take my time not to overshadow the original elements of the track that I liked it, but also adding some deeper house sounds to bring it into the dance/electronic world,â he said.
Yves V said it was his first time working with a Korean artist for a remix and “and I really enjoyed it!”
“The K-pop scene is one of the biggest in the world with so many amazing artists and groups, so to work with Viviz as one of the brightest on the scene and bridge the gap between Eastern sounds and west, especially in different genres, was something that I felt very honored to do,â he explained.
When asked which other Korean artists he wanted to work with, Yves V mentioned K-pop superstars BTS.
âI would love to work with BTS! Their tracks like âDynamiteâ and âButterâ have made them one of the biggest bands around the world, so lending some of my Yves V flavors to their tracks would be super cool! ” he said.
