Mark Rankin

 

Mark Rankin is a British record producer and recording engineer currently based and working in Los Angeles - Mark has numerous awards (see further down this page) including a pair of Grammy Awards for his work with Adele. 

 

Nick Poortman visited Mark to meet up and chat about some of the unique working methods and approaches that Mark has and came away with an hour long video that was pretty hard to cut up as it was all just so interesting and relevant to so many of us. Hopefully you can stick with it but if you just want a short taste watch the snippet in the video below:

 

Nick, like Mark, is not an L.A. native, but both gravitated to California to pursue their production careers. Mark from the UK and Nick from NZ. We hope that you enjoy watching this video and we'd really like to thank Nick Poortman for going to the trouble of single handedly recording this feature and of course, to Mark Rankin for taking time out of his pretty intense schedule too!
