Legendary music producer, Gordon Raphael has spent four decades working with musicians, performers and songwriters to create unique genre-defining sounds. His work with The Strokes, Regina Spektor and The Libertines has made him one of the world’s most sought-after music producers.


Gordon produced The Strokes’ debut EP The Modern Age as well as their first album Is This It, from his basement studio Transporterraum NYC. Then followed two universally loved albums, Room On Fire by The Strokes and the magical Soviet Kitsch by Regina Spektor. As well as performing in his own bands and sharing the stage with The Psychedelic Furs amongst others, Gordon has produced songs with Sarah Maguire, Hinds, Skunk Anansie lead singer Skin and Mexico's top band, Fobia.


Gordon’s memoir The World Is Going To Love This focuses on the eight-year period from the demise of the Seattle grunge scene to a thrilling cultural shift in New York and London that reimagined rock 'n’ roll. Gordon Raphael reveals how The Strokes’ world-changing music was created and recorded, sharing insights into the artistic discoveries that happen when a group of talented musicians find the right studio, the right producer and the right sound.
