Seoul / New York-based producer Yaeji is one of 2017’s true breakouts. Her voice is unmistakably her own – a hushed whisper sliding in and out of English and Korean, so present yet barely there at all. Yaeji’s self-titled debut came out this past Spring to wide-eyed praise from Pitchfork, Fader, Boiler Room, Resident Advisor, and the New Yorker.
Today Yaeji is sharing EP2, the follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut. First single “drink i’m sippin on” was a bold step forward and proved to be a breakout hit, clocking in over 2 million plays in just a few weeks. Since the announce of EP2, Yaeji has been profiled by Pitchfork, where she was dubbed “house music’s most exciting new voice,” and shared a new mix for DAZED. Tonight Yaeji will perform live at a sold out show in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of her new EP. Her hybrid CDJ performances at MoMA PS1, Boiler Room, and Hot Mass this year have been sweltering crowd-inclusive revelries, featuring Yaeji singing her own songs over the sounds and records that inspire her.
