Gareth Jones is an English record producer mixer from London and during the eighties he was involved in making some of the most ground breaking electronic records and worked with artists such as Depeche Mode, Humpe Humpe, Thomas Fehlmann, Einstürzende Neubauten, Wire, Diamanda Galas, Erasure and Nick Cave.
