When you think of house music, artists from American cities, like Chicago and New York, or European hotspots like Ibiza come to mind.
In a breath of fresh air, the past couple of years has seen rising talent from Korea edging into the global spotlight. Female Korean artists like Peggy Gou and Yaeji have been taking the dance music world by storm with their distinct takes on classic genres like house and techno.
More recently, 24-year-old Park Hye Jin caught the ears of dance music enthusiasts, with her stellar debut EP, IF U WANT IT. A mix of lo-fi house, techno, and hip-hop, Park Hye Jin brings her music to life with varied soundscapes and stellar singing that glides from Korean to English and back.
Hear what the rising K-house artist is all about as she takes the decks for Beats 1’s weekly radio show, One Mix. Regarding the mix, Park Hye Jin mentioned:
“I tried to capture my energy and moving emotions in this mix and included a few different moods and tracks from my first album also. There is also a new track I’ve made with a Baltra - who is an amazing artist from New York - that is being played to anyone for the first time ever!”
