The middle name and musical alias of Brooklyn-based Korean-American singer, DJ, and electronic producer Kathy Lee, Yaeji has quickly emerged as one of today's most exciting new artists. She broke through in a major way in 2017 with the release of two critically-acclaimed EPs that showcased her unique and magnetic vocal-laced house sound featuring lyrics sung in both English and Korean.

Last year she released the single "One More" and performed at top-tier festivals Sónar and Coachella, and she's already booked to play Detroit's Movement Festival and Barcelona's Primavera Festival later this spring. Ahead of those festival dates she delivers an exclusive new DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World and it's an absorbing set of underground house jams from all over the world, sprinkled with some hip-hop, techno, and experimental textures.
