London, U.K. (February 5, 2016)—Producer Charlie Andrew received the top award at the U.K.’s 2016 MPG Awards, which honoured winners in 16 categories.

Andrew, who received the MPG Award for Breakthrough Producer in 2013, was nominated for this year's Producer of the Year Award for his work with Alt-J, Marika Hackman and Sivu. Winning this honor meant that he automatically received the 2016 BRIT Award for Best Producer, which was presented at the same time.
