Arif Mardin is a Turkish-born music producer who has worked with a wide range of artists, across many different styles and genres of music.

He has produced countless hits artists including The Young Rascals, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Patti Labelle, Average White Band, Anita Baker, the Bee Gees, Judy Collins, Phil Collins, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Hall & Oates;, Donny Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Melissa Manchester, Manhattan Transfer, Modern Jazz Quartet, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Dusty Springfield and Jewel.

Ahmet Ertegun (Atlantic Records' Co-Chairman / Co- CEO) commented that

"in a business often driven by trend and fashion, Arif has remained a true artist, a man of incredible musical talent. In contrast to many other producers, Arif does not have one sound which dominates his records. Rather, he creates an environment unique to each performer, the common link being exceptional quality and taste. As a result, for over three decades, he has helped singers and musicians of very different styles do the best work of their careers."
