My game is crashing mid-game and I'm mad. Let's just open this rate, shall we ? K-pop is such a fascinating phenomenon. For an industry that's very open that visual is their main selling point, music industry as the vehicle of K-pop idols are evolving faster and faster. Starting from Sweetune & Yoo Young-Jin to Brave Brothers & Shinsadong Tiger, now there are many musical talents working behind the K-pop scenes, trying to find the perfect recipe for pop music while also injecting their own personalities into it. So why e.one, Full8loom & 1Piece ? What's so special of them ? Well, if you have been witnessing me in this pink prison, I'm a big advocate for synth-y, upbeat bright songs (usually regarded as "magical girl pop") and these three producers can be regarded as the pioneer for it. Almost all of them starts to shine in 2014-2016. e.one, consists of Jung Ho-Hyun and Choi Hyun-Joon, is more experienced with bigger catalogue and have worked with many girlgroups such as Gfriend, WJSN and later IZ*One. They usually have strong penchant for 4/4 disco beats and dramatic strings. Full8loom, consists of Jinli, Glory Face, yuka, Harry, Bang Geonu, Ju-0 and Jake K (who has left in 2019 and now part of another brilliant production team, ARTiffect). In girl groups, they found their muse on WJSN and has been praised for the trilogy. They're probably the most idiosyncratic out of this list, and then to be more noisy and experimental on their composition. 1Piece, consists of music veteran Yoon Sang and two indietronica musicians Davink and Spacecowboy, found their muse on Lovelyz. They're considerably less diverse, but if you're big fan of sentimentality you will love them. The strong bittersweet feels in the melody which may be attributed to the co-founder Yoon Sang, a legend in 90s era with jazzy and hazy balladry. But fear not boygroup stans who read this. They also have been working with several boy groups like GOT7, Drippin, VIXX, Golden Child, The Boyz and even Stray Kids so don't be scared away to exploring their discographies ! It's time for us to rate, shine a spotlight and celebrate these talents that has shaped our favorite groups and make our little K-pop scene diverse and beautiful as ever. Welcome to K-pop Producer Spotlight Rate : e.one / Full8loom / 1Piece !
