K-Pop Producer Spotlight: Kenzie

If there’s anything I’ve learned from covering pop music for over a decade, it’s that songwriters and collaborators are just as important as the artists themselves. Though they often work behind the scenes, this feature is a chance to shine the light on some of k-pop’s most innovative and accomplished producers and composers.


KENZIE

kenzie

Years active: 2002-present

Associated Acts: Girls’ Generation, Shinee, TVXQ, EXO, Red Velvet, Super Junior, BoA, f(x), NCT

Her sound: Incredibly diverse, but always with a robust arrangement that incorporates a wide variety of intricate instrumental touches. Big, sing-along choruses.

Why you should love her: Kenzie is one of a handful of producers who have shaped SM Entertainment’s sound. Often collaborating with a series of co-writers, she doesn’t have an easily-identifiable signature sound the way some composers do. But, her versatility within the k-pop genre makes her a force to be reckoned with. She never disappoints when it comes to a good chorus, and excels and blending the experimental with the populist. Simply put, k-pop would not be the same without her enormous influence.

Examples of her best work:
