Hiraeth (ft. Amor) – FUN
Korean duo Hiraeth, formed by Jake Jeong and Tony Eum, was created with the intention of building a collaborative environment and experiencing writing music outside of his usual boundaries. With ‘FUN’, they presented a laid-back, bouncy electronic-pop tune that perfectly describes the track title.
Mr. Jeong’s has reached several milestones many have dreamed of achieving, and his many productions are truly a testament to his distinguished status as an influential Music Producer, making great contributions to many of America’s most popular productions in recent years.
His solo work as Frison can be seen on some of the nation’s leading award-winning and critically acclaimed albums, streaming platforms, and curated playlists. Jake Jeong original track ‘Hours’ (feat. Cehryl), was released under one of America’s biggest electronic dance music labels ‘Artist Intelligence Agency’. Jeong also released an exceptionally popular remix of Australian Grammy-nominated electronic artist Flume’s track ‘Some Minds’. The Frison remix racked up more than 262k plays on Soundcloud, receiving major endorsements from Madeon, Lophiile, and K?D, featured in Dutch DJ Don Diablo’s weekly radio mix show, ‘Hexagon Radio’, broadcast internationally across iHeartRadio (USA), Fun Radio (France) and Slam FM (Holland) channels. The remix was also featured in renowned electronic music blog RUN THE TRAP’s playlists ‘Poolside Playlist 2016’ and ‘Too Future Mix #93’.
Within his Hiraeth project, ‘Fun’ proved to be a a major success, by landing a direct placement in ‘Billboard Presents: Electric Asia Vol. 1′ – a compilation album that selectively spotlight talented producers from Asia, featuring other artists such as American DJ/producer Steve Aoki (Ranked #15 for Top 100 DJs in DJ Magazine, Best Electronic/Dance Album Grammy nominee), and Korean K-Pop star Jessica (former member of K-Pop Girl Group Girl’s Generation). Furthermore, it received critical acclaim on an international level with features on Billboard (USA) and Mixmag (UK).
As a prolific collaborator and multidisciplinary Music Producer, Jake Jeong, both as Frison and Hiraeth, aims to raise the bar this year by writing more original music and producing for other established artists. “I just want to write the best music I can possibly write – which I think will be an on-going journey of a lifetime”.
