Ki! was born in South Korea, living in an orphanage in the Haeundae District of Busan. He was adopted and grew up in Denmark. The Boy From Haeundae Beach, Ki!’s debut, double LP album of 20 tracks, was born as the tunes were written and recorded, track by track, over the course of a couple of years, many as homages to some of his favourite artists such as Fela Kuti, Sharon Jones, George Harrison, J Dilla, Link Wray etc.
From the first single ‘Mây Trôi’s groovy mix of Vietnamese Vong Co-style guitar and soul music (sounding like a poppy-red sunset on a faded postcard) to the motown magic of ‘Happy’ (retro in line with Amy Winehouse’s re-imagining of the genre), the variety of genres, styles and sounds on the album is all over the map, drawing inspirations from different periods and from all over the world.
