- What's your inspiration?
We’ve been listening to great music from Soul to Hiphop. But the main genre is Soul from
1970s~2010.

- What's your style?

Well, this is a tough question to answer because our style couldn’t be defined by one word. The purpose of this new album was to make a balance between the warm feeling of old music and cool sense of modern music. For this, we’ve spent long a time to get the sound what we want.

- How would you describe your music?
Diamond!, Yes, we want to describe our music as a Diamond. As you know that the diamond has many faces and they reflect the light. Shining! Our new album has many different genres, urban RnB, neo soul, blues, urban jazz, etc like the diamond. It could be also shining when the light comes in. The light is all great music fans all over the world.

A saxophonist Jay Kim from Common Ground (a famous big funk band in South Korea), Great hiphop producer Mildbeats (His new album is also very cool), Boni and Soulman from Korean gospel choir Heritage, The leader of hiphop duo Garion MC meta(rapper), Incredible studio session guitar player Hong jun ho, A perfect groove maker bassist Han ga ram, a lead vocalist of 3rd Coast Han Sohyun, the female vocalist Rang show, and etc..
