I think he's the best ever. You look at his total catalogue, it's astonishing.

From R&B to Folk, to Disco, to Theatre, to R&R to singer-songwriters. From the Young Rascals to Chaka, disco Bee Gees to John Prine's first album, Hall & Oates' big hits, Danny O'Keefe; Rent to Norah Jones, Culture Club, Aretha, Average White Band. I don't think anyone can touch Mardin. I wish he were still around.

One could have a long, successful career doing nothing but emulating Nile Rodgers.

These days, it would be hard to find a better production roll model than the Smeezingtons. While the production itself may not be on par with, say, Quincy Jones in his heyday (modern popular music styles simply don't lend themselves to that level of nuance), the overall aesthetic is purposeful, distinctive, "musical", and a real David and Goliath success story.

Adam Young (Owl City, Sky Sailing, etc...)
Tom DeLonge (Blink-182, Angels & Airwaves)
Travis Barker (Blink-182, +44, personal projects)
Mark Hoppus (Blink-182, +44)
Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low)
Derek Sanders (Mayday Parade)
Jason Lancaster (Mayday Parade, Go Radio)

How has nobody mentioned Tom Dowd. First man to use multiple mic techniques and mix on the fly. Check out the movie Tom Dowd and the language of music, will blow your mind. I also really like Questlove from the Roots.

Old thread but still relevant I suppose - and got up way too early for the plane I'm gonna catch, been sitting around with the wife singing along to Doris Day And now you're gonna be the next victims of my incoherent rambling.

In no particular order - a midnight to six man can't count at this time of day

Kevin Shields - for taking guitars (and insane perfectionism) to a whole new level.

George Martin

Roy Thomas Baker - especially for his work with The Cars, did the layered vocals earlier and subjectively way better than Mutt Lange that I don't like much. Great with Hawkwind too.

Jimmy Miller - like an extra member of Stones when they were at their best and on top of that Primal Screams "Screamadelica" is a masterpiece.

Roy Hallee - So much texture and clarity at the same time. What's not to love? Grew up with "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and would probably not having been such an audio freak without having spent so much time in my childhood listening to it on headphones. Those horns on "Why Don't You Write Me" and "Baby Driver"...

Delia Derbyshire - because White Noise was so much ahead of everything else in 1968. One of the first to bring electronic music further than just some artsy fartsy knobtwiddling.

Isaac Hayes - because Stax in the 60's. Enough said.

Lee Hazlewood - like Kevin Shields and Delia Derbyshire he didn't do that much production work besides his own records. But those usually sound mindblowing. Listening to Summer Wine right now, never fail to impress.

Phil Spector - well, an asshole but what beautiful textures.

Conny Plank - Neu! still sound like it could've been made today - though with no digital plastic sonics.

Brian Eno - You all know why.

Martin Hannett - mostly put him here because of his mentality, a true workaholic and perfectionist. And he was quite innovative too although I'm not much of a fan of digital reverb.

Had to google Ben Mink. Good choice. Totally down with the other nine. But there are so many more that I could never cull my list down to 10.

Oy--how did I forget Berry Gordy and Norman Whitfield? Not sure who I'd take out, though. Prince is another good one.
