Template talk:Music production
Why not Trevor Horn and Nile Rodgers on the people list? What are the criteria for inclusion? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:15, 6 May 2013 (UTC); INDEED NILE RODGERS AND TREVOR HORN, or let say the best producers of the eighties for disco sound and modern pop music !!! Rodgers known from Chic, Sister sledge, best album/numbers of Bowie (Let's dance), Madonna (Like a virgin), Diana Ross (Upside down,..), Duran Duran, INXS (Original sin),... and now also Daft punk AND Trevor Horn from best albums/numbers of ABC, Buggles, Yes, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Art of Noise, Belle & Sebastian, Asia,...
The best criteria I can think of is a list of notable producers whom have a distinctive quality conjured by their engineering innovations or musical experimentations, and/or are distinguished from others for one good reason or another. I'm not familiar with Nile Rodgers, but from what I can determine:
...all easily-recognizable people that have somewhat served great progress in music production.
I would nominate:
- Jeff Lynne: Muddy, over-compressed and direct style is present in every recording he's made since 1985
- Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher: Produced the Sagittarius album Present Tense and Boettcher recorded the first known use of reverse echo in a pop song. Both were very big proponents of sunshine pop and produced dozens of records in their vein.
- Brian Eno: Oblique Strategies. I doubt anyone would dispute his inclusion.
- Lenny Waronker and Russ Titelman: Not entirely familiar with these people except that they've produced an overwhelming amount of artists during the 1960s through to the 1980s.
- Bruce Botnick: Not familiar with this guy either. But he did produce Forever Changes, and (apparently) invented what's called the "Farkle" effect on the album Song Cycle.
