WJSN THE BLACK is a sub-unit of the K-Pop girl group WJSN. The 4-member group consists of SeolA, Bona, EXY and Eunseo. Easy is the lead song from their debut EP, My Attitude. It’s a mid-tempo R&B/Pop crossover fueled by a funky bassline and sultry vocals of the group.
I heard a few bootleg remixes of this song online, and many of them are sound-a-like wannabe EDM anthems that suck out the essence of this song and turn it into some generic background noise.
Not to sound like an asshole (since I don’t have any right to be at this point), but I didn’t want to repeat the mistakes made by others who have taken on this song. To me, the star of Easy is the vocals, which give off all sorts of sexy vibes.
So I did my best to construct something that accented the vocals and remain faithful to the sensuality of the original version of the song rather than go with the easier route of doing a 4/4 banger with layers of synths.
