Park Hye Jin is our favourite discovery of the week – here’s why

Luke Sharkey

South Korea is quickly becoming the go-to location for fans of cutting edge house music to discover their new favourite artists.

Peggy Gou and Yaeji have both become dominant forces in the world of dance over the past couple of years, instilling a newfound sense of vibrancy and dynamism into a sometimes formulaic genre. Both of these names top fans wishlists for dance festival lineups, we think that Park Hye Jin is next.

The Seoul native is a resident DJ at Pistil Dance Club and a regular broadcaster on SCR, an independent Korean radio station.

It’s the recent release of her IF U WANT IT [CLIPP052] EP that’s gained Jin global outreach. Self-described ‘Dreamstate House’, Jin’s music combines dazzling piano chords over tight dance production and Jin’s own half-rapped half-sung vocals. Performed in a mix of her native Korean and English, Jin’s vocals are full of personality and life. A defining characteristic of her music.

It’s a golden combination. Highlights from the EP include lead single ‘I DON’T CARE’ and the woozy ‘ABC’.

We like this a lot and we think you will too. Expect Jin in a mega-club or festival stage near you soon.
