In this article, I would like to share my NewJeans Ditto review.
I finally did NewJeans Ditto review a few days after the song was released.
When I first heard the song, I didn’t feel the excitement of listening to “Attention” or “Hype Boy”
I only had questions about the intention of the song at that moment.
I listened to the song over and over again, and I discovered a lot of interesting things.
Ditto remains on my playlist as the song I’ve listened to the most lately.
When I first heard this song, my reaction was “What the hell is this song?”
This song consists of only one pad, one drumline, and one bass line.
It’s easy to question the song’s identity when you first hear it.
Following the trend
If you listen carefully to Ditto, the kick rhythm keeps repeating itself and holds the center of the song.
Where did this kick rhythm come from?
The Jersey club genre, the source of the rhythm, appeared around the middle of 2010 and gained popularity for a while, but quickly fell away from the public’s attention, and recently gained popularity again as it became viral on TikTok.
The most representative case is that Ciara’s “Level up”, which came out four years ago, became viral again on Instagram and TikTok, and gained tremendous popularity.
Most recently, Lil uzi vert made a massive hit with the Jersey club genre, using a similar drum line in the song “Just wanna rock.”
I want to give high marks to NewJean’s production company, Ador, which has made 250, a domestic composer, to take charge of many parts.
250‘s career is interesting, but it would not have been an easy decision to entrust the production of an idol group’s music and the entire album.
Adore management’s decision to select 250 as a producer and composer were correct based on the results of NewJeans’ albums and songs released so far.
Simple is the best
I think that Ditto, which is simple and can stimulate nostalgia for the past, can be an alternative for listeners who are getting tired of music and performances that become more complicated as time goes by.
I think it’s much harder to make something simple but effective than to make it complex.
Ditto shows that simplicity can overcome complexity and be far more effective.
Ador’s new and unconventional attempt through Ditto is the reason I look forward to the next song, OMG.
