The singer and producer, who won the prestigious award for working on Amy Winehouse's album Back To Black, insisted that he was lucky to win the prize, but remains grateful for it today.
In an interview with online show The Producers, he said: "It was kind of ridiculous to look back on winning a Grammy for Producer of the Year and think that you're in the company of Quincy Jones and Rick Rubin and Dr Dre.
"I think it obviously had a lot to do with Amy's record being so wildly popular that year, but I'm incredibly grateful for it. I mean some of my favourite producers have never won it, so it's a bit of the luck of the draw."
On what makes a successful producer, he explained: "I think maybe having a bit of an encyclopedic knowledge helps, like I know a lot of DJs that became good producers that have that sort of record library in your head.
