SOHMI, a Korean-American DJ and producer, has been making some serious waves on the club circuit lately, and her latest release is a fantastic continuation of her floor-focused manifesto.
SOHMI, who is now based in Los Angeles, grew up in Seoul and Hong Kong, where she spent part of her childhood. Since bursting onto the scene in 2018, her tight production and knack for putting together accessible dark room house tunes have earned her a growing following among the industry’s elite. Among the labels she’s worked with are Astralwerks, Toolroom, and Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters. It was her collaboration with German techno heavyweights Booka Shade that resulted in her most recent release, ‘Small Talk,’ which found its way onto the playlists of everyone from Oliver Heldens and Eelke Kleijn to a slew of other dance luminaries.
The DJ, producer, and vocalist continues her sonic explorations unabated, with her most recent release delivering a track that is sure to get people dancing. The track is propelled forward by a powerful kick drum, scorching hats, and a pounding bass. ‘Time’ is a no-nonsense club weapon that is undeniably effective. A compelling chord stab underpins SOHMI’s ethereal vocals, and the stripped-down groove builds to a stirring breakdown of melodic piano parts and life-affirming rhythms. Take a listen to this:
SOHMI has begun resuming her touring schedule, which includes appearances with artists such as Fisher, Bob Moses, Michael Bibi, and others, now that the dance world is slowly waking up from its enforced slumber. We fully expect her to take her hard-hitting club sound around the world as soon as the world continues to open up.
