Global-Minded Pop from Korea

MIIIN’s self-described “xeno dark music” hints at the way the internet’s lack of real-world geographical distance can inspire separation from familiar territory. Whether she’s building footwork DJ sets that range from Kenji Kawai’s score to Ghost in the Shell or carving bass music down to its minimalist core, her experimental style emphasizes the bracing weirdness found in both familiar regional touchstones and further-flung corners of electronic music. But MIIIN’s connections between her South Korean home base and the wider world are still deeply conscious of the ways that music can communicate a particular look into a globe-spanning unreality that feels increasingly possible to reach.
