One of the ways producers separate themselves from the pack is with a tag, an audio drop that plays during their beats that makes it clear who produced the track.
Surging to popularity in the last few years, producer tags are everywhere now. Add in the prevalence of social media and the much smaller proximity of producers to fans and your tag can become huge.
But Which Producer Currently Has The Most Fascinating Tag?
Evolving from the noisy Sarz on the Beat to the salient manly voice of “reallllyyy” we’ve noticed at the beginning of tracks like Niniola‘s Maradona, Skepta‘s Bad Energy, Reminisce‘s Instagram
Perhaps one of the new producers the industry was introduced to last year, Ozedikus influence has been huge in the last one year. When you hear “ozedikus nwanne“, you know the mastermind.
Starting from Sha, sha, shabalistica which we heard on Nowo and Motigbana, Killertunes has evolved to the sexy feminine voice of “Osheyyy….shabalistica” you heard on songs like Olamide‘s Woske, Mr Eazi‘s Tony Montana and Wizkid‘s Ghetto Love.
4. Kel P
The last year has been huge for Kel P. When you hear “It’s Kel P vibes”, you know you’ve heard this tag a lot of times.
Burna Boy‘s Dangote, Killin Dem, Spiritual, Wizkid‘s Ease Your Mind are all his brain works.
Towards the end of last year, Pheelz producer tag “Rii…Ridimakulayoor” was mistaken to be Rhythm and Cool and Young. Many people still make the mistake though.
Zanku originator, Rexxie perhaps was the busiest producer last year. Working with Zlatan to finesse his sound and also, most upcoming acts who want to feature Zlatan would have to hop on Rexxie beats.
The moment you hear, “Yo, yo…Rexxie pon dis one“, you know it’s going to be a smash.
Who Out Of These Beat Makers Has The Best Producer Tag?
