This British producer, who gave up on his initial career as a soccer player, first rose to fame with Eminem and Rihanna’s 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie,” a pop-rap blend that reached No. 1 for ten weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and helped land him a joint deal with Interscope, KIDinaKorner. Today Gary carries on to keep it all up at…

But it’s his work with the label’s resident hard parties, Umagine Dragons, that did earn him a tremendous success in the last charts’ year. The band’s 2012 first, Night Visions, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and produced the dub step-laced “Radioactive,” which has spent 57 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 3. —Nick Williams
