    Dawson is a very talented producer! He sent me some instrumental tracks and I was blown away by all of them-he has a great ear and a solid contemporary style. I enjoyed working with him and hope to collaborate again soon.

    Dawson is the 🔥🔥🔥. K-Pop is not an easy genre to write in and he makes it fun, motivating and has so many strong ideas he brings to the table. Can't wait to here it the final record turns out!

    I would be careful working with dawson. He had me work on one song as id get part of publishing and no fee, then half way through decided to hire me to sing a different song. I worked on the song for over a month, and once i sent him the complete song i never heard from him again and he did not pay me

Interview with Dawson Choi

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: Jimmy Douglas, Manny marroquin, Tom Elmhirst, Mixed by Ali, Alex Turmay... many more

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: Indie Pop Musician, Rappers, R&B Musicians. Usually work with artists who are certain of what they want but difficult to materialize. When they want to make their music more musical find me. For example, Messy or Moody or very distored sources are come to me.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Hybrid. I think the best is to mix digital flexibility and analog harmonics properly. Choosing one analog or digital is not easy for me:) lol

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I've been in this game for almost nine years. From Runner to Record Engineer, I worked with great studios and many producers. They tried to absorb their strengths and know-how and finally have mine own Setup.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: No matter how long it takes, the top priority is to improve the completeness of production.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Not typical artist. These kind of artist make me stronger and remind me of another creative potential hidden inside me. Working with artist who are not typical is so fun because it is hard to predict!

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Don't get stuck in the 'Must'. Sometimes 'Must' to let locks your creativity.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Be specialized in defining abstracts, Like blue feeling, drak image.... These kinds of expressions can be implemented in sound. Technical problem solving. Many times I am hired to work in difficult spaces and very characteristic space. In every situation I try to bring out the best possible finals for the production as a whole.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: Basically, I use Neve Genesys Console Board. All Mixing is Hybrid. After completing the basic work in Tools, send a signal to Genesys to be summing. Then, balance out some groups that have been Summed, and finish up with EQ, Comp, and so on the final touches.
