Atlantic re-pacts Mardin

Atlantic Records has renewed its pact with legendary producer Arif Mardin. Under the terms of the multiyear deal, Mardin will continue to have a senior VP title and be free to produce albums for artists outside of the Atlantic family.

Mardin, who joined Atlantic in 1963, is among a handful of producers whose works cross all musical genres and demographic lines. He has earned six Grammy Awards for his efforts.

His recent credits include artists as diverse as Anita Baker, whose label debut is set for next year, the original Broadway cast album to “Rent” and string arrangements for Mammoth Records’ alterna-rockers Seven Mary Three.

“In contrast to many producers, Arif does not have one sound which dominates his records,” said Ahmet Ertegun, Atlantic Records co-chairman/co-CEO. “Rather he creates an environment unique to each performer, the common link being exceptional quality and taste.”

Mardin has produced albums from Phil Collins, the Bee Gees, Bette Midler, Willie Nelson and the Average White Band, among others.
