    Producers have been wildly important to popular music since the 60s, but in recent years these methodic and calculated behind-the-scenes artists have radically changed the way we view music curation and sampling, blurring the once-thick line that separated performers and their production counterparts. Continually defying the limits and expectations of their already important positions, they're now at the forefront of cultural conversation. At this Talk, join some of the leading minds in the music industry for a look into how producers and DJs have defined—and continue to define—what we listen to.
