NAK - Ashley Court: Chapter II


NAK - Ashley Court: Chapter II Cover Artwork

Ashley Court: Chapter II is a search for meaning in the mundane. In six songs, NAK proudly presents the second chapter of his mundane story. A story of a second-generation non-Tagalog-speaking Filipino American: not quite Filipino but not quite American. A story of a predominantly white community in the suburbs. A story of a bachelor’s degree in nursing. A story of hip hop, art, video games, family, friends, life, and death. What good could possibly come from such a bland experience (even NAK thinks it’s boring)? In the words of the rapper himself, “I don’t know. But I know someone, somewhere will find something timeless.”

Sam Ock - Grey

Sam Ock's sophomore LP titled Grey is an album exploring the space where the blackness of life and purity of truth meet. In a Christian's life, there are moments when the darkest of thoughts and emotions come into contact with absolute truth and hope. Both sides are clearly present and at war with each other. Grey is the expression of these two forces clashing within the soul and will hopefully comfort the hearts of many individuals who have also experienced the deep intricacies of living in a dark world with an unshakeable hope in Jesus Christ.

Sam Ock & John Rhee - Laus Deo

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16).

The word “hymn” doesn’t normally spark excitement within modern church culture. Many churches dismiss hymns as either being ancient religious mantras or having antiquated music structures. What they often overlook are that hymns are one of the greatest sources of spiritual nourishment-they are packed with theological truths and Christian beliefs.

The goal of this project was for Sam Ock and John Rhee to record and arrange new versions of select hymns. The idea is a simple concept…showcase the beautiful marriage between timeless poetry and modern melody for the purpose of inspiring fellow believers to sing praises and give thanks to our great God.

Uzuhan - Rejoice

Rejoice is the debut EP from J. Han (now known as Uzuhan). On it, he wrestles with the harsh reality of loss and what it means to stay positive and hopeful in the face of life’s difficulties. As a man of Christian faith, he believes that maintaining an attitude of rejoicing is crucial to gaining a God-inspired perspective on life. He will be the first to confess that the only reason he can rejoice in his circumstances is because of the compelling joy he has found in his savior, Jesus Christ. As Uzuhan recollects stories and experiences from the past on this project, he wishes to offer a small reflection of his humanity and hope. Just as he has learned to rejoice in the toughest of times, he hopes that his music will empower listeners to do the same.

AMP - The Transition EP

Every transition we experience in life comes with unknown roads, untaken paths, and uncharted territories. Whether it’s a recent college grad concerned about his uncertain future, or a new parent wondering how to bring a precious but vulnerable little child into a scary world, each transition brings its own share of fear and anxiety to whoever is going through it.

Transitions also stretch and challenge us in ways we never imagined. AMP knows this well, because they’re going through those exact things. J.Han and Sam Ock are those college grads. CL is that new father. These are all brand new experiences they are dealing with, but it’s through these transitions that they've been able to realize something amazing.

Uzuhan - Art of Starch

Art of Starch is the debut solo project from J. Han (now known as Uzuhan). In this mixtape he aims to articulate his past by examining his upbringing as a “Cleaners Kid”. Realizing his experiences were not something to be trashed as insignificant but rather something to be embraced, he shares his heart and convictions, taking the listener through his life journey. This mixtape features a number of collaborations with artists Sam Ock, Gowe, Mickey Cho, Lyricks, CL, and Jae Jin.
