Make it rain, girl, make it rain! After 5 years, Yaeji’s self-titled debut EP and subsequent EP2 finally get a vinyl release! For those unfamiliar with Yaeji, the Korean-American artist mixes house and hip-hop elements with airy vocals into infectiously vibey party jams. While reverberant minimalism has become a bit of a cliche in the last few years, Yaeji sets herself apart by embracing her bilingualism in her songwriting, juggling between English and Korean on roughly half of the tracks. As a result, Yaeji has quickly become one of the most unique and effortlessly cool voices in the NYC and global club scenes. "Raingurl" and "Drink I’m Sippin On" are certified earworms and her cover of Drake’s "Passionfruit" rivals the original. 10 tracks on black vinyl with foldout poster, die-cut inner sleeve and download code.
