Here's my starter for 10..

at the minute i think the freemasons rule the remixing world.there remixs of beyonce/kelly rowland blow away the original mixes which some remixs dont.

for old skool remixers brothers in rhytum were the best but theyve not done anything in years last i heard they were club promoters.

For the really young here's a few classic producers you may not have heard of:

Ken Scott - Ziggy Stardust
Trevor Horn - Frankie
Kevin Shirley - Aerosmith
Gus Dudgeon - Elton John

Ah, too many to list

Ahhh...yes. Top comment Echo

Back in the day when record producers were record producers eh?

I think Quincy Jones deserves a mention too (Mr. lets record EVERYTHING stereo) brilliant.



NB: Ken Scott also did a great job recording Procul Harum's "Salty Dog" album amongst other things

I filmed an interview with Ken where he talks about both of these albums:
[url=http://www.recordproduction.com/ken-scott.html]Ken Scot - record producer and recording engineer[/url]

Sorry about the audio!!! I am going to be running a new Ken Scott video every month for the next six months as a 'fly on the wall' - coming soon

I agree with Quincy Jones. He was famous for mixing in mono on a single Auratone to get the balance right before panning things out in stereo at the end.

Another for the classic producers list:

Tony Visconti - T Rex
Nile Rogers - Madonna
Phil Ramone - Paul Simon
George Martin - Beatles
Sam Phillips - Elvis
Rick Rubin - Johnny Cash
Daniel Lanois - Peter Gabriel
Phil Spector - gulp
Brian Wilson - Beach Boys
Chris Thomas - Sex Pistols

Ah, tea time, must do a list of the young best of the best

Default Brothers in Rhythm.. where are they now?

Nope, Steve Anderson (keys, production) is a successful song writer and producer for west end shows - he's also Kylie Minogues musical director and has just programmed all the dance versions for her Kylie 'X' 08 tour. Here's Steve's MySpace

Dave Seaman (DJ) is still DJ'ing globally and runs Therapy recordings. He recently re-invented B.I.R. with legendary DJ/Producer Chad Jackson taking Steve's place. Dave's MySpace is Here

I guess The Freemasons are the 21st century 'Brothers..' which is kind of ironic as they all (well, Dave, Steve, and James Wiltshire from Freemasons) shared the same studio roots over at DMC in Berkshire... Lovely

Far from it...
Chad's website HERE is one of the best, and informative artist sites around - AND, it's got some great CJ samples for you to download free. Chad was, and still is , a 'King o' the Beats'..

Ok, I'll offer up some of today's cutting edge electronica remixers and producers.
Paul Epworth (much big'd up by the likes of Eddy Temple-Morris on XFM) is a name maybe not instantly known, but his production guise of 'Phones' certainly is. This guy took house beats and breaks and mash'd them up with the most innovative ear shredding synthesis yet heard when he first surfaced a couple of years ago. Check his work HERE.

Ewan Pearson is another of the recent breed .. Check Him Here

Roger Seventy Two is also highly recommended.. Go Here

And you'll all probably know of Simian Mobile Disco.. HERE

"I think Quincy Jones deserves a mention too"

I've got to agree. atm for me he's the 'best of the best'. His compositional skills are so good!

erm... rudy van gelder?
Chris Kimsey is my personal hero. I know he did a lot of the stones' stuff but his work on an album by a group called FBI is a lesson in 70s brit funk.
