BTS is advertised as the next great South Korean hope to break through the American pop music market’s glass ceiling. Despite all the hype they have received, I could not understand why after numerous attempts to get into their music. I like a couple of their songs, but the group’s mystique still eluded my comprehension. That is until I heard their most recent song called Dynamite, and I somewhat got what their appeal might be.

It probably helped that the song was a little more relatable to me, with it sounding like a Charlie Puth or Justin Timberlake type of track combined with the whole Disco-Pop vibe that is popular these days.

Given how massively popular BTS is, finding an acapella rip and the sheet music for Dynamite was very easy. Much like every remix project I take on, I try not to re-create the wheel.

For this remix, I tried to replicate some of the original version’s sounds to keep some of the same feelings. Otherwise, I did my best to add my flavour to the song. The final result is something that has a different kind of groove but still manages to retain some of what made the original version so catchy.
