Eternal Morning - Soundtrack to a Lost Film (2007)


Unless you're a Korean Hip-Hop aficionado, chances are you're completely unaware of this record's existence. Consisting of Epik High member Tablo, and fellow Korean producer Pe2ny, Eternal Morning is a duo that make elegant, seductive melodies. The strength of this album lies in its simplicity. Instead of bombarding listeners with layers of samples, and technically-imposing drum patterns, Soundtrack to a Lost Film is content with calm string and drum arrangements that let the listener get comfortable inside the rhythm. It's an ethereal experience not unlike a Fat Jon or Samon Kawamura album, only it feels more refined. If you leave this record on repeat, you really start to notice the nuances of the music. The tracks have a delicate balance of sadness and bliss that leaves you musically fulfilled. Unlike the Beat Konducta Vol. 1 - 2 which sounded like the soundtrack to a foreign film, Eternal Morning's album is a soundtrack to your life, and the whirlwind of emotions that life throws at you. If you like instrumental Hip-Hop, do yourself a favour and cop this ASAP.
