Read Why Producer DJ Mustard Owns 2014 Summer!

The summer anthem  of 2014 arguably may be Iggy Azealea’s “Fancy,” but Roc Nation artist and producer  DJ Mustard has provided the season’s soundtrack.

His stage name is a play on his birth name, Dijon McFarlane, and it’s hard not to hear the Los Angeles native’s infectious brand of west coast trap music on the radio.

The 24- year old’s ad-lib to introduce his songs, “Mustard On The Beat,” has become a staple.

The hits speak for themselves.

From Tinashe’s “2 On,” and Kid Ink’s “Main Chick” to executive producing YG’s debut album, DJ Mustard is dominating.

Since producing Tyga’s X-rated hit “Rack City,” Mustard and his services have been in high demand.

“The game is about evolving,” DJ Mustard said to theGrio,com’s Kyle Harvey during the #BriskBodega tour stop in Chicago. “That’s what Timbaland always told me keep in my head.  I like the music that I make, but I listen to Drake and Kanye. I listen to so many different types of music.”

Other genres on his list include EDM and pop. Mustard said he wouldn’t mind getting into the studio with super producer Calvin Harris (We Found Love), or with hip-hop’s favorite guitarist John Mayer.

“I don’t  know why but John Mayer,” Mustard said. “He would be dope to work, and both he and Calvin know how to make good songs. I’ve been making the hood songs for so long … and I’m not tired of it, but I wanna do everything. I don’t know what he’d do but play that guitar, but we could take it from there.”

Mustard and Mayer? We’d pay to hear that.
