Newcomer BLKCUBE makes his debut on Gemstone with ‘Puppet.’ The track marks one of the first official releases by the Korean talent under his new artist name.
‘Puppet’ starts with a strong female vocal accompanied by guitar strums and a beautiful piano melody. The track quickly progresses to a cinematic buildup highlighted by arpeggiated synths and brass stabs before breaking into chord-heavy drop further accentuated by arps and vocal chops. BLKCUBE switches up the second drop by playing around with pauses and volume envelopes.
Hailing from South Korea, BLCKCUBE is known for melodic bangers that feature emotional chord progressions and soulful vocals. At just 17, he’s already released on labels such as Metanoia Music, and has been featured by significant artist outlets such as Proximity and Trap Nation. BLCKCUBE previously released music under the artist name ’Salo’; his track ’Straight to You’ recently surpassed 600k streams.
