Who would you choose to produce Prince?

it would never happen, but don't you just wish Prince would bring in a different producer? Shake things up a bit

I'd like to see him work with:

Rick Rubin (beasties, slayer, johnny cash, neil diamond)
Nigel Godrich (radiohead)
Raphael Saddiq (d'angelo, angie/joss stone etc)

prince really needs a producer,someone to push him,someone to say "no prince lets try this..... .."look what steve silk hurly ,at least i think it was him,did with the great dance version of get off!!!! some names i would like to see...brian eno.....farell williams.....the neptunes.....basement jaxx.of which prince should have sung the vocals on plug it in instead of a prince impression by jc chasez.but we all can dream because it wiil never happen..shame really .the only reason why madonna still sells records is because she allways uses a top producer at that paticular time ,she never seems to use the same one time and time again,her sound is allways fresh!

well said! I like the idea of an Eno/Prince hook-up. I read somewhere years ago that Eno admires Prince's production work. So a collaboration would not be beyond the realms of possibility...

You shouldn't even have to ask that question.

Though Terry showed up in my dream, a few days ago, I'm going with Anx on this one...only because I can't think of a killa female producer at the moment. It may take that to make him pay attention.

I do hope that at some point he works with Marcus Miller. The product of those two would be incredible.

what does he do to get a hit? marketing gimmicks, photographers and designers for the album art, directors for his videos, new musicians in his band, new sounds from the latest gear available, appearances at celebrity awards and national sporting events, live shows that sell out.....but the main product (what he will be remembered for), no that cant be tampered with....he would lose control/authority and the prince sound would be diluted. youre not getting a true prince experience, the sound he delivers as an artist.

is this the reason why or is it pride? i wish he would employ a co-producer. i love his talents in the other areas such as performing, songwriting and arranging. production on the commercial sounding albums (rave, musicology) is average.
i dont know who though.

Maybe some think this but working with someone, that is also talented can sometimes bring out new things in both. That's the main reason I mention Marcus, because he has a way of bringing out what's already there. He doesn't color it with "flavor of the season". He's a real producer.

A 'no' for me would be Rick Rubin: i can imagine him producing a Prince record that sounds like a watered down version of Let Love Rule by Lenny Kravitz, but wo would wish for that?

A 'Yes' would be people like Matmos and Marius de Vries, inventive producers of electronic music who maybe could make Princes music sound fresh again. Both have worked with Björk and have done some wonderfull things on her albums.

Also production by Tchad Blake could be exciting: he did a wonderfull job on Neil Finns album 'Try whistling this' mixing acoustic instruments with drumloops and samples.

Another fine choice could be Scott Litt, who produced REM during their most succesfull days. He is able to create a strong, clear 'alternative rock-sound, without falling into the trap of too much polishment.

It would be cool for him to step back and to see what the results would be, for my money some old school in the form of QJ (worked for MJ)

Hey I end in a J am I cool or what!

Let's not forget, his father helped!

Rick Rubin, it would rock as hard as Purple Rain.

Even though I personally think Prince does just fine on his own, I'll play along and say Andrew Slater.
