Inflo named BRITs British Producer Of The Year

By | Published on Friday 28 January 2022


With less than two weeks to go before this year’s BRIT Awards, Inflo has been announced as the winner of this year’s British Producer Of The Year prize.

Real name Dean Josiah Cover, Inflo has worked with artists including Adele, Little Simz and Michael Kiwuanuka, as well as leading his own project, Sault. Although the best producer trophy has been handed out in some capacity as part of most BRIT Awards ceremonies since 1977 – generally not as part of the main ceremony and for a time in partnership with the Music Producers Guild Awards – he is the first black producer to take away the prize.

“As the first black music producer to ever win a BRIT for Best Producer, I feel honoured to be a part of change”, says Inflo. “All the black producers before me, I’m in awe and have studied you. I am you. Thank you for both paving the way and for your integral contribution to British music”.

Little Simz, who worked with Inflo on her latest album ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ and 2019’s ‘Grey Area’, adds: “Flo is a true creative in every sense of the word. Music is in his DNA. He really loves, lives and breathes this. There is no one more deserving of this award”.

Inflo will be presented with his trophy on ITV2’s BRITs Red Carpet show directly before the main ceremony on 8 Feb.
