「禪」是梵語「禪那」(ध्यान,dhyāna)的簡稱。原義是靜慮,意即至心一處、靜思觀修。禪可以說是一種基於「靜止」的行為模式。停止才能前進,留空才能增加。透過靜止的冥想,屏除雜念,人們才能鍛煉思維,進而發展智慧。

台灣陷阱饒舌霸主高浩哲K-HOW,繼2019年關注台灣當前青年世代困境的《日頭赤炎炎》專輯後,睽違一年再度推出個人第五張創作專輯《ZENWAVE》。經歷了多年的歌手生涯高低變化,高浩哲走過憤怒、悲傷、狂喜等多種情緒起伏。此次高浩哲選擇跨越外在世俗的直觀執念,以內在的「禪定」出發。不論人世間的爭奪喧噪,將自身的意念得以匯聚成流,高浩哲不再徬徨。生活也好、創作也好,順著自己的節奏即可持續前進。

《ZENWAVE》除了呈現高浩哲的心境轉變,同也體現其耕耘多年的音樂思維之躍升。除了足以代表其音樂風格的808 Trap,不論是80’s帶有Cyberpunk科幻風味的Synth Sound、國際潮流上逐漸嶄露頭角的Drill,甚至是嘗試搖滾、House等跨界曲風。他並不滿足只被定義為一線陷阱歌手。

製作團隊除了海底隊當家製作RAYLO、老夥伴電音唱作人Dusa,此張專輯更是邀來了曾編曲頑童MJ116〈幹大事〉、〈少年董〉等知名單曲,並固定與有著BRIDGE等大勢饒舌歌手的重慶嘻哈廠牌GO$H合作的台灣知名製作人ROLLMEAJOIENTYELLA參與編曲、製作。

從專輯的取樣成音、視覺設計,甚至是MV的造型美術,高浩哲皆大量挪用本土民俗文化,尤其是三太子。對他而言自己好比三太子般對抗權貴階級。為了台灣年輕世代奉獻生命,削肉還母、剔骨還父,最終對抗成功。世代間的衝突和對立,也一直是他關注的議題。

高浩哲用他一貫的暗黑風格,搭配上強而有力的專輯概念、企製團隊。無論成功與否,他早已在這條音樂的不歸路上留下屬於他的記號。

The concept of “Zen” originated from ancient Sanskrit(ध्यान,dhyāna),which
means quiet down one’s mind, putting one’s heart into a singular focus. “Zen” can be
interpreted as a behavioral pattern based on “tranquility”. One can only move
forward by slowing down and earn more by empting out. Through the meditation of
tranquility, erasing all the noise inside, that we can strengthen our mind and develop
higher intelligence.
Since the album《SCORCH》focus on the struggle of young generation released
in 2019, here comes the fifth album《ZENWAVE》from Taiwanese trap king K-How.
After many year’s ups and downs, K-How went through various different emotions,
anger, sadness, ecstasy…etc. This time K-How chose to transcend worldly

attachment, restart from a inner status of “Zen”, disregarding all the external hustle,
leaving only pure mindfulness in his heart, K-How is no longer lost, no matter life or
his creations, he goes with his own flow and keep moving forward.
What《ZENWAVE》presented is not only the mental changes of K-How, but also
the development of his music aesthetic over the years, except his iconic sounds of
trap 808s or synth sound with 80’s cyberpunk characteristic, he even try to combines
elements of Rock, House Music into this album, showing that he’s not satisfied with
only being a trap music artist.
The all-star production team are comprised of Helicrew’s main producer Raylo, the
usual suspect – singer/electronic music producer Dusa Naga, he also invited the
well-known Taiwanese hip-hop producer ROLLMEAJOIENTYELLA who’re known
for countless award-winning hit songs that he produced for across mandarin hip hop
scene, from artists like Taiwan’s hip hop superstar MJ116 to Chinese top hip hop
artists like BRIDGE、MACOVERSEAS to participate in the beat-making process.
From album’s sound selection, visual artwork to the subtle details in his music video,
K-How implement lots of local folklore culture including imagery of Nezha. who died
fighting the upper class and finally succeeded in the confrontation, which K-How
symbolized himself as Nezha, sacrificing his life for young generation in Taiwan,
expressing the conflict in between different generations and traditional values thru
his music.
K-HOW continues his dark style on top of strong album concept, production team,
no matter if he succeeds or not, K-HOW’s already leaving marks on this never-
returning path.
