A huge congratulations to both SHERELLE and 박혜진 park hye jin who have been named #1 and #5 breakthrough acts of the year by Mixmag. They’re joined on the list by the likes of Anz, I Hate Models, AceMo and more.
“If 박혜진 Park Hye-Jin hadn’t released her ‘If U Want It’ EP, she might still only be getting booked in Asia. Before the South Korean dropped the dreamy house-rap five-tracker in late 2018, she’d never DJed outside the continent. This year she passed through Aus, North America and Europe (Circoloco Ibiza and Panorama Bar included) to serve up an energetic brew of house, acid and throwback rave with live vocals thrown into the mix.
…Not only did Sherelle come through it, she transcended the hype – thanks, simply, to her phenomenal DJ skills. Using the 160BPM interzone between Chicagoan footwork and London jungle, she weaves in funk, rave, trance, grime and dubstep references, mixing familiar and fresh, dark and light, but always with dancefloor energy paramount.”
