The annual Music Producer’s Guild (MPG) Awards saw the names behind the past year’s biggest music gathered at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel this March. The event was hosted by broadcaster Mark Radcliffe, with names including The 1975 and Fontaines D.C. also in attendance.

Flare Audio was once again proud to sponsor the Music Producer of the Year award, which went to Dan Carey for his work on the Black Midi album ‘Ducter’, Kate Tempest’s ‘Firesmoke’ and Fontaines D.C. ‘Boys in the Better Land’.

Stormzy was awarded the MPG Inspiration award. He sent a “huge thank you” to The Music Producers Guild from his current tour, and a shout out to Chris Andoh, who was there tonight to take home the UK Single Song Release of the Year award for Stormzy’s hit single, ‘Vossi Bop’, which Chris co-wrote and produced.

Marta Salogni won Breakthrough Producer of the Year for her work with The Orielles, Georgia Ruth, Hero Fisher, Two Monkeys and Yak.
