Congratulations to Trevor Horn, sometime Buggle, ZTT founder and producer extraordinaire, on winning this prestigious award.

By Tom Pakinkis

The Music Producers Guild has named renowned producer, musician and songwriter Trevor Horn as the recipient of its Outstanding Contribution award for 2014.
Horn will be presented with the PPL sponsored award at the MPG’s 2014 Awards ceremony on February 13 at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel.

"I’m thrilled that the MPG is recognising Trevor with this award, said chairman of the Music Producers Guild Steve Levine. I have known Trevor for over 30 years and have always admired his innovative production skills. He has always pioneered the use of new technology and is always happy to exchange and share his knowledge with other producers and with manufactures to help move that technical curve further forward. He is a very worth recipient of this extremely prestigious award."

Fran Nevrkla OBE, chairman of PPL said: "I am absolutely delighted about this very special Award for Trevor Horn whom I have known for so many years. PPL is particularly proud to be the sponsor of this Award, which is bestowed on special individuals by their own community of record producers and others involved in studio production. Trevor is one of the most uniquely talented creative individuals, having achieved international fame both as a recording artist and a producer. His enormous success over so many decades is almost without parallel and it speaks for itself.

"We at PPL offer our profound thanks together with congratulations and compliments to Trevor Horn on his truly extraordinary contribution to British music which is recognised throughout the world."

One of the UK’s most influential producers of the last 30 years, Trevor Horn has been responsible for numerous hits for artists such as ABC, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones and Robbie Williams. The award he will receive from the MPG acknowledges those who have made a significant contribution over a long period of time to the success of the UK music recording industry.

Salvo starts ZTT reissue programme with 808 State and Buggles

Founded by Trevor Horn, Jill Sinclair and Paul Morley in 1983, ZTT (Zang Tuum Tumb) enjoyed 45 UK Top 40 hits (fifteen of them Top 10) and produced well regarded and highly successful albums by the likes The Art of Noise, Propaganda, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and 808 State.

Under a new deal Salvo will be following up its acclaimed ZTT box set with reissues of all of the label’s classic albums as remastered deluxe editions with rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks, new liner notes and photos. First out of the block are two seminal dance albums from 808 State - 90 and ex:el and the long lost second album by The Buggles, which was essentially a Trevor Horn solo album.

With new "electro"-inspired artists like La Roux and Lady GaGa riding high in the charts there has never been a better time to look back at some of the pioneers of electronic dance music. Watch out for more ZTT releases throughout the year.
