Airbear is Aaron Choe, a DJ and record collector from California now based in Seoul.

In retracing his Korean heritage, Aaron has spent his time in Seoul uncovering Korean gems from the 80s and 90s, most of which you’ve probably never heard. He’s also a co-host of Seoul’s TMI Party and curates a selection of records across-genres available at local shop Clique Records. I first listened to this one on a night flight between Melbourne and Osaka a couple of weeks ago, lulled to sleep by the cabin mood lighting and mellow city pop. Hope you can enjoy it as much as I did!
