Debuting just recently, the up and coming Korean Hip Hop artist ColorTheBen held his showcase performance of “High Livin’,” from his uniquely titled album ‘Green.’ The reason why this artist is such a unique individual is due to the concept that ColorTheBen is an artist who creates music based on colors. In “High Livin’,” his second single from his album ‘Green,‘ the song expresses the profound idea of expanding the mind and each of his projects have had a corresponding color theme that have deep meaning for the artist and his life. In his ‘Blue’ album ColorTheBen conveys a cool, laid back emotional flair where as in ‘Green’ he expresses his feelings of emptiness and open-mindedness through a twisted melody and melancholic lyrics. Check out some of his deep vibes in his latest MV release from the ‘Green’ album.
His performance showcase, filmed at Studio Carre, highlights his deep tone and atmospheric vibes that can easily come alive on stage and impress any crowd..
