2 ReviewsEndorse Kairos Music Group
It can be difficult to find music producers in LA who are both extremely musically talented & professional. I loved working with Sam & Wes of KMG. They made me feel extremely comfortable & helped me take my music to the next level. Very happy with the tracks we made & I cannot wait to collaborate with them again in the future. These guys are the real deal.
Kairos Music Group has been nothing but a great experience. The team at Kairos has been accommodating and they make you feel at home. Great staff and very professional. I would highly recommend anyone to Kairos Music Group!
Interview with Kairos Music Group
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: We have recently been the songwriting team to make the South Korean hit single "Signal" by girl group superstars TWICE. We are proud of this because it has been a challenge to overcome any cultural barriers between our two countries, and yet we overcame and created a monstrous success. It has also gone on to win song of the year in South Korea.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Though many of us have been huge fans of analog recording growing up, the amazing advancements in technology today have converted most, if not all, of us to do the bulk of our work digitally.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We promise to cultivate and extract an artistic work from the client to get a result they would not have gotten elsewhere. We promise to do everything we do for the service of the song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: We like that creativity is required at all times. Whether it be a chord progression, a lyrical line, or even the kind of effect we place on an instrument, everything is meticulously crafted and organized based on the creative vision we have from within.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Before they work with us, they ask why they should pay top dollar for something they can possibly get for free from a friend at their dorm room. After they work with us, that question never comes up again. We provide a pristine quality recording of the most refined creative ideas we can think up for one piece. Ultimately, in this field, one gets what they pay for.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that we are DJ's. Though we respect DJ's, and truly think they have changed the game in recent years, we venture to say we can take on the beat making roles of a DJ, but also mix, master, and so much more.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What kind of reaction do you want when someone listens to your song for the first time? What kind of reaction do you normally get?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look for someone who cares. This industry is a business, and money is big part of the service, but that also means there are some people who do not care about much else besides the money. Make sure your provider cares about your vision and work.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: We have each been in the music business for nearly a decade, but came together about four years ago. Nothing has been same since.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Our style is all about accentuating the given mood of a song. If a song needs to pump the listener up, we make sure it has the edge. We give it an aggression that is needed. If a song needs to calm someone down, we focus on the beautiful elements of space and ambience.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: We would love to work with Rihanna because of how versatile she is with her style, yet she is instantly recognizable.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never trust sentiment. Trust the objective opinion of the majority. When a song is bad to ten people, but one person likes it, it is most likely not a hit song.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: We work on various styles of music, most notably R&B, K-Pop, and Rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Our strongest skill is our ability to listen and envision. Our musical and engineering skills come second to this because all the musical skills in the world would not amount to anything without a specific, decisive direction from a creative mind.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: We bring cultural relevance to a song. Many artists have great ideas, but do not know how to arrange it in a way that would be palatable to today's ears. We only do to a song what would make it better and listenable. There is nothing more wasteful than a great song executed wrongly!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: We are most known for producing clients' works. We make the musical arrangements, help them make melodies and harmonies, and provide a comfortable and friendly environment conducive to creative output. After the piece is made, we provide post-production services like editing, tuning, mixing, and mastering.
