7 Iconic K-Pop Producer Watermark Tags

misc.
1. Cha Cha Malone
One of the most iconic tags in K-Pop is Cha Cha Malone's "I need a Cha Cha beat, boy!" The producer's iconic tag is most notable on Jay Park's songs, but the producer is also responsible for the production of a number of other group's hit tracks. Cha Cha Malone has written for Red Velvet, Shinhwa, and Loco, just to name a few.
2. LDN Noise
LDN Noise feature amazing house and electronic production abilities. Every song produced by LDN Noise is a dance floor hit and has the uncanny ability to get you out of your seat. The iconic tag used by LDN Noise is the childish "London Noise!" in a Korean-English accent or the simplistic "London" with distortion.
3. DPR Live
The sound of a male announcing "Coming to you live!" over an intercom is the producer tag for DPR Live's music. This producer tag sounds a little bit like hip-hop producer Don Cannon's, which may be the reason why it sticks so well.
4. Groovy Room
Groovy Room opts for something that is a little different from their name. Instead, they go for "Groovy everywhere" in something a little bit more developed than the childish tone that LDN Noise uses for their production tag. Groovy Room is a duo that has produced for artists like Suran, Heize, Jay Park, and more.
5. JYP (Whisper)
Let's not kid ourselves, this list wouldn't be complete without the famous JYP whisper. This is JYP's way of intimately letting us know that this track is, indeed, by JYP himself. His whisper is one of the biggest memes in production tag history and K-Pop fans love to make fun of it, but it's rare that the song doesn't end up being really catchy.
6. Brave Sound
Brave Sound went through a metamorphosis with their production tag over time. They originally started with a cheesy auto-tuned tag, but over time grew to manipulate their producer tag with the song's sound. So if you're listening to newer songs, you may realize that their tags often are generally sung by the artist they're collaborating with or tastefully dropped in rather than elongated like in the past.
7. GRAY
GRAY's producer tag is the most minimalist and straightforward. No gimmicks or special effects, just GRAY's own voice saying his own name in a short, but sweet: "Gray." Because he opts for this simplicity, it's easy to pick up a song that's his not only by his musical style but by this easy-to-memorize tag. It's hard to not say it when you listen to Hyorin's "Dally"!
