SPLICE AWARDS 2020
2020 was loud, but you were louder. This year pushed music and collaboration into a new realm. It was producers verzuz anything in their way, and none of them missed a beat, shifting some of the focus from music's faces to the artists behind the tracks. With millions of downloads, obscure sounds, and features on global hits, we're launching our new Splice Awards to celebrate the groundbreaking producers that pave the way for creators everywhere—turning the noise of 2020 into the soundtracks of our year.
SPLICE PRODUCER OF THE YEAR
We know better than to sleep on this heavy hitter. As a Turkish, Swiss-based producer, OZ has managed to traverse space and time and dominate US charts, putting his unique touch on some of music's biggest tracks. In 2018 he made a noteworthy arrival into the music production scene with his first number one record, "Sicko Mode" by Travis Scott, followed closely in numbers by "Highest in the Room." Then, as if to reiterate what he's capable of, OZ solo produced Drake's "Toosie Slide," a 2020 hit that's earned the young producer over 1B video views, a long run on Billboard's Hot 100, and his signature on an 8x platinum record. Drake said it best on his track "Greece," "OZ got the bounce, yeah." Yeah, and now he has the well-earned title as Splice's Producer of the Year.
