LA-based Korean producer 박혜진 Park Hye Jin has had something of a breakout year with signing to Ninja Tune and releasing the impactful EP How can I back in the summer, which went on to be remixed by the likes of Blood Orange and Galcher Lustwerk.
Now she’s capping it off with a new song made in collaboration with fellow LA-based wiz Nosaj Thing, “Clouds”. A much more tranquil affair than the majority of How can I, it seems Nosaj’s natural chill has washed over Park on this outing. It still possesses a light techno burble that inclines you towards a swaying, lighthearted dance, but this is one that hits you in the head for the most part. The dreamy atmosphere pairs perfectly with Park’s rapping – in her native Korean – about floating up to the sky, escaping the trials of terrestrial life, and becoming one with the titular “Clouds”.
It’s a perfect way to cap off a big year for Park Hye Jin – but you suspect there’s even bigger things to come. You can listen to “Clouds” below or on your preferred streaming service.
