I was listening to the top 77 of 2018 tunes on Youtube, and this came up on the algorithm, and wow! (Apparently it's been sponsored or something, cos there's plenty of comments on the video of people just hearing it randomly.) Somehow the combination of the mellow house vibes and singsongy semi-rapping remind me of the Greek project Αλλού, whose sole album I adore. Anyway, apparently Hye-Jin Park has a whole EP out with similar sound, I'm listening it on Bandcamp and it's pretty dope! She's only 23, so feels like there's a promising future ahead if she sounds so assured already.

I bought the EP and have been listening to it a while, and it's really nice. Also kinda reminds me of Moomin in how tastefully she uses the sparse samples. I'm not fully sold on the vocals yet, though maybe it's just the effect of not understanding the language. Would love to hear some instrumental tracks from her, anyway.

Yeah, that's cool, the whole EP is. She's playing live at a local club here on Easter Sunday, I guess I'll have to go and see.

LOVE this ep. Been seeing a lot of comparisons to Yaeji, which seems inevitable I guess, but their sounds are totally different imo.

She had a gig here a couple of weeks ago, mostly DJing, but she also played the songs from the EP and did live vocals on top of them. Really good gig, you could tell the her skills were still a bit rough around the edges, but she had enthusiasm to spare, and the track selections were top-notch. Mostly '90s or '90s-influenced deep and vocal house, unsurprisingly, but a very good set, I got some friends of mine who normally don't much listen to house music to come to to the club, and they danced their asses off. She also played a new track of hers, it was very much in the vain of EP, meaning awesome!

New single "Ahead of Time" is excellent, similar chilled and dreamy vibe to the EP but with bumping breakbeats.
