A true trendsetter, Zaytoven proved integral to the sonic architecture of the Atlanta scene with which he stands synonymous. His influence can easily be felt in nearly every corner of hip-hop and R&B. 2011 saw him win his first GRAMMY® for co-producing and writing “Papers” on Usher’s Raymond v. Raymond. Among countless multiplatinum productions for the likes of Gucci Mane and Migos, he teamed up with Future for seminal 2015 collaborative mixtape, Beast Mode. Everybody from Drake and Nicki Minaj to Rick Ross and Lil Yachty has sought him out.
Unsurprisingly, his musical acumen encompasses more than just beat-making. Born in Germany, raised in San Francisco, and based in Atlanta, Zaytoven’s nickname pays homage to his piano virtuosity. VIBE has hailed him as “Atlanta’s true trap music pioneer” while Complex praised his “singular blend of layered, oscillating synth melodies, ominous organ chords, and booming low-end bass.” Founding Familiar Territory Records, he’s becoming a cultural tastemaker and entrepreneur in 2017 as well.
