A House beat softly whirrs along as a sleepy trap beat stumbles around the corner. And Yaeji sing-raps over it with a discreet voice in Korean and English. The 26-year-old artist who lives in Seoul and New York produces an auspicious blend for maximum comfort. Once you are lulled by the strange flow of these introverted songs, you notice that Yaeji is twisting you just as much on the dancefloor as in your head. Especially with the hype track “Raingurl”, a hit you cannot get out of your system.
