“Yaeji is basically unstoppable at this point.” – triple j
“(Yaeji) creates music that transgresses genres and cultures” – Time Magazine
“Yaeji’s music has always been about communion and friendship, portals into other possible time lines around the globe.” – The New Yorker
“Yaeji has finally released her new WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던 mixtape…It is, as expected, very good.” — Stereogum
“It’s exactly her intuitive ability to move between languages, and genres — house, hip-hop, pop — that makes When We Drew feel like the next logical step for pop’s best and most interesting impulses.” — Uproxx
Today, Yaeji has announced that she’ll return to Boiler Room on August 29th at 9am AEST for a performance titled ‘Yaeji In Place.’ This will be her first time performing material from her full-length mixtape WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던 (released April 2 on XL Recordings / Remote Control). ‘Yaeji In Place‘ will see Yaeji joined by collaborators from the mixtape and incorporating live performance and DJing, in a signature hybrid style that she has become known for globally.
Last month, WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던 became Yaeji’s first ever vinyl release, entirely self-designed by the artist. It included three different color variants, along with a limited quantity bundle package of a signed LP, holofoil stickers, and an exclusive Krink paint marker, that sold out immediately. Yaeji announced she will donate all proceeds of her yellow WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던 vinyl sales, purchased on Yaeji Mart and Bandcamp, to two organizations, Black Trans Femmes in the Arts (BTFA) and Black Art Futures Fund (BAFF). Read more on that HERE.
Since the release of WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던, Yaeji has continued to celebrate and find meaningful ways to reach her community through playing Animal Crossing on her new Twitch channel (in which she debuted a WHAT WE DREW merch line) to throwing a Yaeji & Friends night on Club Quarantine and launching a Yaeji Guild Patreon, giving fans exclusive, inside access to her process.
Earlier this month Yaeji began her NTS radio residency ‘Kraeji w/Yaeji‘ – check out the first show HERE.
WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던, which is produced and written entirely by Yaeji, draws on electronic music, drum and bass, hip-hop and R&B to express an appreciation for community, family, friends and the support she’s felt through a period of growth. It is the product of a newfound, laser-focused creative vision that spans across art, music, clothing, games, and more. And as Pitchfork exclaimed, Yaeji has found “clarity in vulnerability, in the pendulum swing of her humanity.”
