Tune in and turn up

Flavorwire has put together a list of who they believe are the “10 most influential contemporary hip-hop producers.” With the lyrical side of hip-hop nearly hitting rock-bottom, the production side of the genre – the instrumentals – began to evolve.

With the help of Lyle Horowitz, Flavorwire has done a swell job selecting a few of the producers who are pushing the creative envelope; this list is focused on the up-and-comers, ie. no Kanye West.

Here is their list: Flying LotusClams Casino, Hudson Mohawke, Mike Will Made ItIllangelo/Doc McKinney, SKYWLKR, Sounwave, Noah ’40’ Shebib, Exile and Lex Luger.

Do you agree with the list, who do you think is missing?
