Making his debut just last year on December 5th, Korean-American singer David Kim, who wishes to be known by his stage name Dabit, brought an upbeat swing sound to the industry with his self composed track “Whoo Whoo Whoo” which was a song about falling in love at first sight. Haven’t heard his debut track yet? Check it out here:
The track was part of a digital release and was part of the album titled “When the Wind Blows” which also happens to be the title of the second track on the album and was also composed by Dabit. The song has a much slower tempo and a warm jazz sound. Both songs suited Dabit’s vocals perfectly and showed off the “pure and honest music that is easy on the ears but still has depth in it” that Dabit wanted to creat for his audience.
