[Review] HYO – DEEP

HYO is here with her first solo mini album since her debut with Girls’ Generation. She is well know for her flawless dancing skills and DJ talent. Her talent has no limit and we are thrilled to finally see this new chapter in her career.

DEEP‘ is the title of this EP, and includes the party anthems HYO has dropped since 2018 and a couple of new singles. Let’s dive in and check what this queen has prepared for us.


Starting off we get right into the title track ‘DEEP‘. The beginning of this song really reminded me of Brazilian funk beats, as it develops it goes even harder with heavy bass and dope beat drops. As expected this song is a total party banger and we even get a full on EDM only section. This single will have many hyped up.

For the music video HYO went all in with an arachnid concept and alternative vibes. She really aimed for an unconventional vibe and aesthetics with the visuals of this MV, and killed it in every second. Check it below.

EDM takes over in the pop dance single ‘Stupid‘, the ad-libs and rhythm changes in this track were super cool, and I loved how playful and dynamic this single is. Just get ready to jam and enjoy.

The pre-released tracks ‘Second‘ featuring BIBI and ‘Dessert‘ featuring JEON SOYEON and Loopy follow up, and we are still obsessed with these bops.

We are going clubbing with ‘Badster‘, a single pre-releaed in 2019, I am living for the hard techno style in this song. Any EDM music lover will be in for this single. Next up is the collaboration track ‘Punk Right Now‘ with 3LAU dropped in 2019, defenitely another techno banger to hit the dance floor.

Last on this release is ‘Sober‘ featuring Ummet Ozcan and released in 2018, and if you haven’t listen to this song, just get ready for summer vibes and awesome vocals.
