Vinyle 12″ EP Wake Up – Didi Han (2021)
Up-and-coming Korean talent Didi Han follows up to the promises of her debut EP with Wake Up, her sophomore five-track sortie on Roche Musique. Inspired by a trip to Bali in 2020 and featuring K-Pop legend Wansun Kim, Lydia Lee, L-Like and rising French rap artist nelick on vocals, the EP beams us up to a safe haven for all things jazz house, rife with the right amount of coastal-tempered suavity, laid-back groove and loungey pop melodies to have you zoning out into a bubble of Café del Mar-esque meets of-this-day autotuned ambiences, primed for extended use both on and off the dancefloor.
Drenched in texture-wealthy downtempo house and solar-powered balearic hip-hop, Didi Han sweeps the cursor from melancholic states to redeeming uplift with effortless ease; continuously blurring the line between wistful oneirism and an in-situ reality where each bar brings its very own string of familiar snapshots, bitter contradictions and carefully connected memories.
