Mark S. Berry is a music producer who has to his credit 36 international Gold and Platinum record awards. He is also chairman of Attack Media Group (a Toronto-based privately owned media and entertainment company). His work has included remixing Duran Duran's "Meet El Presidente" single released in 1987.
Originally from Brooklyn, Mark began his music career at the Institute of Audio Research (IAR) in New York City in 1972. At the young age of 17, Berry was commuting into Manhattan at night, learning the inside ropes of making records and recording up and coming basement bands. After graduating from IAR, he was drawn to the Brit sound and was off to London, England, where he soon arrived on the doorsteps of AIR Studios, one of the world's most renowned recording facilities, owned by Sir George Martin.
Mark's experience led to his first major engineering assignment; Carly Simon's No Secrets album, which included the international smash, "You're So Vain", and would become his very first of many engineering and mixing credits. He also assisted and worked on several projects such as the groundbreaking "Roll Over Beethoven" for Electric Light Orchestra, and "Grand Hotel" for Procal Harem.
Returning to New York, Berry moved into the area of 7" radio and 12" dance and rock mixing and re-mixing for major multi-platinum artists such as David Bowie, Duran Duran, Talk Talk, Cameo, Toto, Yes, Billy Idol and Boy George.
In 1991, he moved further towards rock production and signed with Steve Scharf for producer management in NYC and relocated to Toronto. In that same year, Mark remixed multi-platinum hitmakers, Glass Tiger (EMI) and produced the hit album Get Off for Canadian act Haywire (Attic Records).
Mark is presently at the helm of the Attack Media Group (AMG). AMG is a fully independent media company with an international mandate for promoting/marketing new and emerging artists and film/DVD content on the international scene.
