Bobby Johnson (real name Adrian Brusch) is one of the hottest hip-hop producers around right now. The german-based beatmaker has worked with the likes of Tree, King Louie, Ransom, Jose Guapo and Zilla - he's also responsible for the beats found on Que's 'OG Bobby Johnson', which was everywhere at the end of 2013. But how did it all start for this young producer? His Plastic Platform mix might hold a few clues.

"Starting to make music in 2003/2004, Timbaland was one of the biggest influences to me. His sound basically laid the foundation for my perception of the craft. I remember hearing 'Cry me a River' for the first time - opened new worlds to me. Here goes a little mix with some of his most inspirational cuts to me."
