This category doesn't need much explanation. Quite simply, who do you think are the best producers of some this year’s best-selling records? And it’s not just about what you might call 'generic pop' music, either – our list covers producers from multiple genres.
There’s no ignoring the influence of house music on today’s hit-parade, so you won’t be surprised to find a few house producers on this list. Are they the ones responsible for crafting the year’s biggest and best tracks, though? Time to decide.
