David Yungin Kim, a two-time Grammy Award-winning mixing engineer, will hold his first music mixing workshop in Seoul on February 29.
Entitled “All Up in the Mix Workshop in Seoul by David Yungin Kim”, the workshop is the first production, recording and musical mixing workshop organized in Korea by Kim.
“To celebrate the founding of a new Korean label The Label By Montis, [the workshop] will be held at Yoondang Arthall in Gangnam, Seoul, ”a press release said.
Kim won her first Grammy in 2015 for the design of “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar and her second Grammy this year for the design of “Racks In The Middle” by Nipsey Hussle.
Born in South Korea and raised in Koreatown, Los Angeles, Kim cultivated his talents as a musical craftsman in Los Angeles, creating music for popular American artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Ariana Grande, Big Sean, Post Malone, Nipsey Hussle, DJ Khaled, and Future, among others, as well as Korean hip hop artists such as Tiger JK, Changmo, Dok2 and LOOPY & LOS.
Kim plans to share her story of becoming a Grammy-winning music engineer from an unpaid intern working eight-hour shifts for the first six months in the United States, as well as her technical know-how. The workshop will include a raffle that includes full reimbursement of tuition fees for one of the participants.
Application for Kim’s workshop will close on February 28 and details of the workshop schedule and how to apply the instructions can be found at www.aroundus.com.
