BRIT AWARDS HONOR INFLO

British producer Inflo, who's worked with AdeleMichael Kiwanuka and Little Simz, is the winner of this year’s BRIT Awards Producer of the Year gong. He’s the first Black producer to be so honored.

Over the last year, Inflo produced three tracks on Adele’s 30 and was the lead producer for Simz’ Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. His work also includes Kiwanuka’s U.K. #1 Love & Hate and the Mercury Prize-winning follow-up Kiwanuka. Inflo is also the mastermind behind alternative band SAULT. He first came to prominence in 2014 with The Kooks’ Listen, which he produced and co-wrote.

“I feel honored to be a part of change,” he said of the win. “All the Black producers before me, I’m in awe of you and have studied you. I am you. Thank you for both paving the way and for your integral contribution to British music.”
