24-year old South Korean talent 박혜진 Park Hye Jin is already an established phenomenon in her own country. Resident at Seoul club Pistil, hosting regular radio shows and leading the charge of “k-house” along with Peggy Gou and Yaeji. Singing duets with herself in both Korean and English over house beats with a lo-fi and minimal touch, she exploded onto the international scene with her debut EP If U Want It in 2018. Her dreamy house has a smoky texture to it, but she’s not foreign to mixing it up with melancholic downtempo electronica influenced as much by deep house as by psychedelic darkwave.
As a selector she is heavily rooted in house, blending it with leftfield electronica and the occasional techno banger, and of course her own productions and sly voice. Despite her age, she’s well aware of the fact that proper house requires an emotional connection in addition to moving the body. Her set at Stay Out West will show Sweden what the future of emotional, extraordinary and beautiful house music looks like.
