2NE1’s “CLAP YOUR HANDS”

Even if you are not a fan of 2NE1, you have to admire the fact that YG Entertainment’s flagship female act has an identifiable sound, which is not something you can say about the vast majority of girl groups out there. Possibly the main reason for this is the fact that 2NE1 has worked pretty extensively withTeddy (aka Teddy Park), YG’s biggest name in-house producer.

Working mostly with a single producer has a lot of advantages. It is worth considering that many acts that have largely worked with one producer have succeeded together in crafting some pretty unique works.

Examples include George Martin, who worked on every single Beatles album, or long-time TLC producer Dallas Austin.

Having already struck gold first time round with 2NE1’s outstanding debut, “Fire” (still by far the act’s best song in my book), Teddy again teamed up with co-composer Kush for “Clap Your Hands.” Following the same formula, playing to the group’s already-established strengths, the result was a song that was at once catchy, trendy and memorable, with its fuzzy-heavy, distorted bassline and multiple, deep house-inspired keyboard sounds.
