If you’re not already familiar with Los Angeles-based producer, Mike Hector, it is time you get acquainted with him. He’s produced for the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Denzel Curry, and most recently, he co-produced Lil Gotit and Nav’s song, “Burnt N Turnt,” with Based1. When you listen to records that Mike Hector has produced, you’ll notice impressive versatility and depth on every one of them: he uses a range of melodic elements, from atmospheric synths to dark, ominous pianos, all backed by hard-hitting drums.

On “Burnt N Turnt,” Mike Hector layers several sinister melodies on top of booming 808s. The track never feels too busy from a production standpoint, leaving plenty of room for Lil Gotit and Nav to create a trap anthem. This record shows Hector’s ability to make energetic trap music, but to get a full understanding of his creativity, you should check out “God” by Kendrick Lamar, “Hair Down” by SiR, and “Little Demon” by Frank Ocean. We are excited to see what the rest of the year holds for the talented producer.
