LA natives Sounwave, MixedByAli and Tae Beast are some of the key people responsible for shaping the sound of LA rap in the second half of the 2010s – and by extent defining a style with global impact. Sounwave and Tae Beast are producers, helping to shape albums by artists like Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock as well as working with the likes of Mac Miller and St. Vincent. MixedByAli, the man with the golden ears, is an engineer who is equally prolific, contributing to projects by artists ranging from Danny Brown and Childish Gambino to YG. Together they’ve earned and won multiple nominations and awards, including Grammys and Oscars – Sounwave was nominated for the latter in 2019 for Best Song, for co-writing “All the Stars” from the Black Panther soundtrack.
