박혜진 Park Hye Jin wants to know “Whatchu Doin Later” on her quaking new track

Earlier this month, Korean producer and vocalist 박혜진 Park Hye Jin announced her debut album for release in September. She’s already shared lead single “Let’s Sing Let’s Dance” but today returns with a second hit of what’s to come in “Whatchu Doin Later”.

A bass-heavy slow-motion techno hip-hop track, “Whatchu Doin Later” gives us various views on all the things Park Hye Jin can do. Combining featherlight synths with a meaty low end, she catches us in her web, then repeats the titular question until it reaches a point of nonsense. In the verses she gets to show off her rapping abilities, using her native Korean and skipping with class and poise through her production. “Whatchu Doin Later” is another cut in which she shows that she can make the complex sound simple, the intense sound easy, and makes us even more intrigued for Before I Die.

Before I Die comes out on September 10 through Ninja Tune (pre-order/save). You can find Park Hye Jin on Bandcamp, Facebook, TikTok and Instagram.
