is a music composer, multi-instrumentalist and filmmaker (born 1993 in Seoul, Korea) residing in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His composition typically revolves around soundscapes of electronica and ambient music which he mainly utilises key-based instruments ranging from different synthesisers and rhodes. As he continues to expand his palate of different soundscapes, Dae Kim has recently incorporated guitar and accordion into his compositions. Much alike to artist such as Vangelis, Ennio Moriconne and Nils Frahm, Dae Kim shares similar ambience with his usage of orchestration and synthesisers. Noteworthy for his versatility in creating songs of various genre, Dae Kim’s compositions consist of rich emotions, thrusting drums patterns and quirky scratching techniques that embedded his characteristic through each song.

Since his early years in Malaysia, music has always played a major part in his life. He release an EP entitled “ </3?!” in 2015 which opened many doors of opportunities for him to explore deeper in his musical journey. Ranging from scoring to composing for artists such as Jin Hackman and Stemilyn, Dae Kim later got in touch with Mü-nest’s founder, Wei. And since then the album was an on-going collaboration for a span of two years.

His first LP entitled “Solace” is available for streaming and purchase.
