This week on FACT TV’s Singles Club? Well, pretty much the biggest producer in hip-hop.
DJ Mustard put in work as a regular mixtape collaborator with fellow West Coaster YG, before breaking through with ‘Rack City’, the hit he produced for Tyga in 2011. In 2014, his productions – generally speaking, minimal tracks around the 100bpm mark, often driven by a slowed-down dance sample and fingerclicks – are ubiquitous: he’s producing hits for everybody from J-Lo to 2 Chainz, was behind the boards on one of the year’s biggest albums, YG’s My Krazy Life, and was shamelessly ripped off on one of its biggest chart hits, Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’.
Mustard tackled tracks by Joker and Swindle, Fracture, Tricky and more.
