Greatest Music Producers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Avicii Avicii Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, is a Swedish electronic musician, DJ, remixer and record producer.

Avicii is an amateur compared to other people. Of you guys had sense you would have a higher EDM vocabulary! Ever heard of Monstercat (Record Label) if not then you obviously know nothing.

82 Dave Jerden

Alice in Chains, Stabbing Westward, Sacred Reich, Anthrax, offspring, social distortion... Many others

Alice in Chains's "Dirt" with its multiple layers, newly-invented editing techniques, beautifully enhancing both Layne Staley's voice and the instrumental performance of the other band members... Need I say anything more? ;-)

83 The RZA

How is he not on the list? He is one of the greatest rap producers ever, and he made the hip hop masterpiece, Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers)

RZA made some of the best beats of the 90's, go listen to Liquid Swords, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx or Enter the Wu Tang

89 Andrew Loog Oldham

He got the best out of the Stones and the records can´┐Ż't be bettered, for example Aftermath. Too many classics too mention!

90 Lou Adler
91 Ken Scott
92 Trevor Horn

The Buggles, ABC, Dollar, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Yes- Owner Of A Lonely Heart, Grace Jones - Slave to the rhythm, Band Aid.

Surely way too low down at 74! Trevor horns company had so many hits and the first digital no1.

93 Sam Phillips

The man behind Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin' Wolf, and Carl Perkins is a no-brainer for the top 5.

94 Axwell

Axwell is the real number 1. Axwell is an unsung hero. His remix of the song Music Matters by Faithless proves it beyond any doubt. Feel the vibe is his global hit.
