Mark 'Spike' Stent is a British record producer, and audio engineer who has worked with The KLF, Björk, Keane, Depeche Mode, Muse, Erasure, Hard-Fi, Massive Attack, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Marilyn Manson, Pet Shop Boys, Dave Matthews, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani, CSS, Beth Orton, Arcade Fire, Oasis, the Spice Girls, Take That, Stereophonics, Linkin Park, Panic at the Disco, Craig David, S Club 7, Wheatus, U2, Britney Spears, Goldfrapp, Hurts and Maroon 5, among others. Primarily a mixing engineer, Stent is one of the most sought after in the business.
Stent used to work out of Olympic Studios, his custom built studio in Barnes, South London, but has since moved to LA, where many of his clients are. Olympic Studios was built as part of a joint venture between himself and EMI - EMI paid for the building, and Stent equipped it.
In 2005, Radiohead members confirmed that they were going to record sessions for their new album with Stent. By August 2006, the band had apparently finished their sessions for In Rainbows with Stent and began work again with their longtime producer Nigel Godrich. The liner notes of the album show Stent not credited as a producer, but credited as one of the people the band thanked.
On October 14, 2010, Duran Duran's Roger Taylor posted a blog on the band's official website which stated, "starting to hear final mixes coming back for our new album at the hands of the one and only Mark ‘Spike’ Stent."
