British rap is an amazing place right now. With a thriving underground and an ever-increasing appetite from audiences, the homegrown scene is finding supporters in big places, and a lot of this is down to the talented guys back behind the boards. 

Illford producer 808Melo found international fame as one of the emissaries bringing UK drill Stateside to help sculpt its Brooklyn counterpart, West LDN’s Inflo is a hit-making producer for SAULT, Little Simz and Adele, and South London native P2J made his mark on projects by Dave, Wizkid and Burna Boy, not to mention Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack. UK rappers like Giggs, J Hus and Skepta have all found international audiences in recent years, which is in no small part due to the growing number of scene-pushing producers we’ve been blessed with today. These talents are creating unquestionably British beats and taking them global without toning down its identity.

Cross-pollination with jazz, grime and Afrobeats, as well as the knowledge that you can get some pretty out-there productions in the charts these days, has made the scene the perfect playground for some incredible producers. Creativity and inventiveness is at an all-time high and the effects are rippling not just through UK music, but the world.

The Complex UK music team has decided to put together a list of producers whose names we predict will be up in light, on the world stage, in the coming months and years. Dive in below.
