In 1983, Langan co-founded the ZTT Records label with Trevor Horn, Paul Morley and Jill Sinclair. He was also a founding member of the musical group Art of Noise, but departed in 1986 after touring in support of the group's In Visible Silence album.
His career started at age 18 when he worked as an assistant engineer at Sarm Studios (East), learning the craft from Gary Lyons and Mike Stone, whom he assisted on the Queen albums A Night at the Opera, A Day At The Races, and News of the World. After engineering for Horn 90125 for Yes, Langan would produce Beauty Stab for ABC and, later, Through The Barricades for Spandau Ballet.
2005 saw Langan creating the SACD mix for the re-issue of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds.
In April 2009, Langan took charge of the front of house duties for ABC at the Royal Albert Hall. The concert was also not only a reunion for various members of the band, but also for the team involved in the making of The Lexicon of Love. Anne Dudley arranged the songs for, and conducted the BBC Concert Orchestra, Trevor Horn supplied a speech and backing vocals.
