Mike WiLL Made-It’s unmistakable producer tag has graced some of pop and southern rap’s most ubiquitous hits in recent years. The Atlanta-born Michael Williams’ journey began with a gift from his father, a Korg ES-1 sampler, followed by his first break: producing for hometown hero Gucci Mane. Since then, he’s founded the EarsDrummers Entertainment company, home to rappers and producers, and helped maintain Atlanta’s status as the unquestioned epicentre of modern day hip-hop.
Rodrigues is best known as the man behind the song. But the DJ, producer and audiophile is no one hit wonder. Collaborating with Grammy Award-winning producer Just Blaze; remix work for dance-floor heavyweights including Jay-Z, Disclosure, The Prodigy and AlunaGeorge; and a dense tour schedule including a residency at LIGHT nightclub in Las Vegas have kept Baauer on an upward trajectory.
