Martin Rushent R.I.P.

Very saddened to hear of the passing of a production genius. He was behind some of the greatest records of the post-punk era; Buzzcocks, Stranglers, Altered Images, the Associates, the Go-Gos and, of course, the Human League's magnum opus Dare, all were touched by the magic hand of Rushent.

He also invented the remix album with his truly groundbreaking League Unlimited Album, Love & Dancing. A dub version of Dare, the record was painstakingly assembled over many many hours using tape splicing and became a smash hit in its own right, peaking at number 3 and going platinum.
