[Guest Blogger] Rude Paper- Realise

Rude Paper is a hybrid of reggae, hip hop and dupstep all rolled into one fabulous mixture that at first seems destined to be like oil and water but the more you listen to them the more the music draws you in with it's originality.

Members Koonta (singer) and Real Dreamer (producer) certainly seem to have an ear for melding blends together and it's no surprise that others have taken notice. Their first full length album Paper Spectrum debuted in September and includes collaborations with the likes of Brown Eyed Girls' Miryo, Illionaire, Dok2, Sean2Slow, and Sony Music.

They continue this trend in their song Realise, which starts off with a nice slow trance in the background that slowly builds as the song progresses. Koonta's vocals kicks in a faster pace with his reggae sounding vocals, and the combination is just, wow. Indescribable. The dubstep kicks in heavily at the 1:34 mark, in case you find the opening a little too slow.

Personally, this combination of reggae/hip hop/dubstep/trance comes together to make a pleasantly refreshing new sound. Check out the song below and don't forget leave us a comment.

1.) Your name, what you are called, and/or alias? 

Ronnie Icon, although Ronnie Scholtes is my real name. 

2.) Where you are from, where you are active? 

I'm from The Netherlands, and I'm mostly active on Youtube. It's my way of being international. :) 

3.) What age did you start?

I started writing songs when I was about 10 years old, but I didn't go to music college until my 22nd. I started my Youtube channel early 2015.

4.) What's your inspiration? 

Anything K-pop, really. Before I found out about K-pop, I'd been drawn to American pop artists like Jesse McCartney, but also artists like Bjork. Then I came across K-pop and my entire field of reference changed. I first got into EXO, but gradually I started learning all about other artists as well.

5.) What's your style?

K-pop inspired songs, remixes and covers. I like to think that, as a European based, K-pop inspired artist, I blend a little of both worlds. An EDM inspired sound mixed with the pop music I now listen…
