Brian Joseph Burton (born July 29, 1977), better known by his stage name Danger Mouse, is an American musician and record producer. Danger Mouse made his debut in 2003 on the album Ghetto Pop Life, a collaboration with rapper Jemini. However, he first came to prominence the following year when he released The Grey Album, which combined the acapellas of songs from Jay Z's The Black Album with instrumentals from The Beatles' self-titled album (also known as The White Album). Danger Mouse has also garnered significant success as a member of the duo Gnarls Barkley alongside CeeLo Green.

Danger Mouse produced the second Gorillaz album, 2005's Demon Days, as well as Beck's Modern Guilt and the album Attack & Release by The Black Keys in 2008. He has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Producer of the Year category five times, and won the award in 2011. In addition, Danger Mouse has worked with rapper MF DOOM as DANGERDOOM and released the album The Mouse and the Mask in 2005. Danger Mouse has most recently produced A$AP Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP album, and is currently working with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their eleventh studio album, due for release in 2015.
