listen to park hye jin’s genre-defying mini-album IF U WANT IT

PARK HYE JIN

Shout out to our friend Stephen for the heads up on South Korean producer/underground bilingual house-pop star park hye jin, and her brilliant debut "micro-album" IF U WANT IT. The genre-defying electronic record is made of dreamy and highly emotional body music bangers that feel like a natural, vibrant union of deep house and hip-hop, elevated by park hye jin's adventurous affinity for pop melody and her off-the-charts charisma...

Channel Tres is back with his first single of 2019, and this one might be his sickest track yet, which is high praise when we're talking about the man responsible for such ineffable bangers as "Topdown", "Controller", and "Jet Black"...

video premiere: Pecas – T-shirt

PECAS TSHIRT

Here's a dreamy, sensuous Valentine's day gift from Pecas, aka Brooklyn-via-Madrid artist Sandy Davis. Pecas' twitter bio describes her sound as "gotha nova" (which we are proclaiming best new genre name), and misty new dream-pop slow jam "T-Shirt" has an ethereal but just vaguely creepy vibe that walks a fine line between seductive and playfully sinister: "I'll wear your t-shirt at night / 'Til the day that I die / I'll never wash it once / Fuck it if I'm crazy / Nobody knows it but me"...
