When you think of Kpop, it’s hard not imagining screaming fan girls and various lady boys doing spirit fingers. A NYC duo going by Kill The DJs is here with a mix that changes all that for a little over an hour. This shit smooth as elephant tusks, homie. Play this for your girl and she might wanna stroke the trunk. Aha!

With K-pop’s popularity at its peak, Kill The DJs — a NYC-based DJ/production duo — presents “K-Pop For Lovers,” a 20-track mix offering a refreshing take on the glitzy genre. In a surprising move, KTDJs selects tracks from acts such as Big Bang and Wonder Girls to pair them up with indie and retro-leaning sounds, and what comes forth is bubblegum pop with dance-rock, disco, R&B, reggae, underground bass, hip-hop, and abstract beats twists. You’ve never heard 2NE1 over Ryan Paris’ Italo groover, or Brown Eyed Girls on top of The Knocks’ reworking of a Santigold heater. As the cool, sexy vibe continues, KTDJs complements the “Love” theme by peppering in vintage film (Korean, of course) quotes, an approach that adds to the quirky undertones prevalent throughout the mix.
