It's John Feldmann's birthday! Everybody's favourite ska legend, band dad and mixing desk maestro has played a part in many of our favourite albums over the years. Yet there are some you may not have even realised Feldy was involved in. So to celebrate another 365 of existence, here are the best that you had no idea he had his fingerprints on.
BIFFY CLYRO - 'ELLIPSIS
The best looking Scottish rock band ever had a bit of help from our John on their latest full length. You'll find a Co-producer and Co-writer credit under 'Animal Style' if you look close enough.
WE ARE THE IN CROWD - 'WEIRD KIDS'
This album still slaps so hard. Feldy was on production and mixing duty here while also assisting with a bit of writing. We're all Weird kids really, aren't we?
GOOD CHARLOTTE - 'THE YOUNG AND THE HOPELESS'
A classic of the genre. A benchmark for new bands. An iconic moment in rock with some John Feldmann writing magic stitched into the lining. Who'd have known?!?
ATREYU - 'LEAD SAILS PAPER ANCHOR'
Remember when Atreyu went from vampire based moshers to arena sized chorus merchants? Well John was on production and engineering duty for this absolute glow up.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO -'VICES & VIRTUES'
To be honest, the story of Panic! At The Disco wouldn't be complete without a bit of Feldmann goldust in the cracks. You have his production, mixing, writing and Engineering work to thank for 'Ready To Go' getting stuck in your head every other day.
AVICII - 'THE NIGHTS'
You think that John only dips his toes in to rock music? Hahahaha you are so very wrong. You'll find some Feldy writing credits pasted across this EDM classic.
D.R.U.G.S - 'DESTROY REBUILD UNTIL GOD SHOWS'
One of the most underrated projects of recent times, D.R.U.G.S' first and only album has Feldmann oozing out of it from all angles. There's even some backing vocals in there as well.
ATTACK ATTACK! - 'ATTACK ATTACK!'
John leant his talents to 'Last Breath' and 'Criminal' on the deluxe version of this crabcore classic. Doesn't 2011 seem like a lifetime ago?
HILARY DUFF - 'MOST WANTED'
From a simpler time, John was a producer and writer on some of this Billboard-topping stroke of pop majestry.
