His music is an confluence of ideas, synthesising multiple underrepresented histories, geographies, musical genres and cultural signifiers into compelling, colourful sonic material that packs contemporaneous dancefloor weight.
Jaeho Hwang is a London-based, South Korean composer and visual artist inspired by the Buddhist concept of impermanent selfhood, his first EP combines dark, industrial club beats with traditional Korean instruments and samples. He explores his sense of identity in the digital age as refracted through the Buddhist concept of anatta, or non-self—the belief that there is no unchanging, permanent soul or essence in living beings.
