If you vibed to the sounds of Chicago rapper Vic Mensa’s breakout single, “Down on My Luck,” at all this year, you should get to know Stefan Ponce, who produced the slick, house-inflected cut. Ponce’s from the Chi too, and he’s been lacing local talents Alex Wiley, ShowYouSuck and Chance the Rapper with lush, electro-minded productions for a minute. He caught his biggest break as part of Childish Gambino’s Because the Internet production braintrust; he co-produced on the project’s left-field radio and Billboard Hot 100 hit “3005” and the Jhene Aiko assisted deep cut “Pink Toes.”
