machìna is a Korean artist based in Tokyo and Berlin. Her music is deeply personal and rooted in selfhood, and yet best experienced amidst the collective effervescence of a nightclub dance floor. Her compositional style is both thoughtful and playful, hinting at her love of jazz, which is also evidenced in her confident modular improvisations when she performs live. Her vocals are pronounced and note-perfect, forged in the regimented training she underwent during her time as a K-Pop artist. Through this collaboration of technology, analogue systems and vocals, she is forging her own unique style of electronic music. 


As a regular performer with MUTEK in Japan, she has begun expanding her sounds into the world of Multi-media experimental art music. Her most recent performance at Mutek Montreal was to great acclaim and led her on the path to play at the SILVESTER KLUBNACHT in Berghain at the end of 2022. Her unique style has been picked up by the likes of Prada Extends Tokyo curated by Richie Hawtin (live performance, 2022), Red Bull Music (Documentary, 2019), Shiseido (Campaign, 2018), and VANS (self-directed video, 2022). She has also featured prominently in the fashion industry, including a live performance at the PRADA Miyashita Park opening in Shibuya, as well as being chosen as part of the NIKE X ACRONYM global campaign and as an ambassador for the MMW x NIKE new collection.


She was asked to contribute to a compilation album 'Trasor30' by the record label Tresor of the legendary club in Berlin. Her vocals were featured on the widely popular track 'Hawk' by British electronic music duo Bicep, around the same time as her debut EP 'Trusted,' released on London's UTTU label. Most recently, she's been working on a new electronic dance music series, 'Action', which is planned to be released every 2 months throughout 2023.
