When Ben Allen updates his résumé at the end of the year, not only can he boast of producing breakthrough recordings from Georgia-based up-and-comers Washed Out and Reptar, but massive pop cuts as well, such as Cee Lo's "Bright Lights Bigger City." Behind the boards, he's also engineered definitive albums ranging from Zonoscope by Aussie electro-pop maestros Cut Copy to In Light, the new LP by Louisiana indie rockers Givers. Allen's expert hand at crafting low-end perfection and improving bands with a less-is-more approach has become his industry calling card. makerecordsnotbombs.com.
