Since emerging in New York City’s electronic scene in 2016, Kathy Yaeji Lee, better known as Yaeji, quickly garnered attention not only for her music, but for her curry. She started throwing parties under the title ‘Curry in No Hurry,’ where she’d serve guests bowls of home-cooked curry to engage as many senses as possible while DJ’ing in the background. Even without the tantalizing scent of her trademark curry, Yaeji’s ethos of sensory unity shines through in her music. In tracks like 2017’s “Feel It Out,” her brand of hypnotic house marries a kaleidoscopic array of slinking bass reminiscent of ’90s Chicago House, weighty four-on-the-floor rhythms, and airy synthesizers. Perhaps the most arresting element is the effortless lilt of Yaeji’s voice as she sings barely above a whisper, alternating between Korean and English. What comes out is a complex sensory journey that seems just as appropriate a soundtrack for watching a sunrise on a foggy morning as it does for dancing in a dimly-lit club. — Paul DeMerritt.
