Influential music producer Martin Rushent, best known for his work with The Human League and the Buzzcocks, has died.

Music website Louder than War broke the news overnight, and his son later confirmed the news on Facebook

Rushent was best known for his work with bands in the punk and new wave era.

His best-known work was with the Human League, producing and performing on their mega-successful album Dare, and hit single 'Don't You Want Me'. He was named Best Producer at the 1982 Brit Awards, and released a remix version of the album the following year, called Love and Dancing.

Other bands and artists he worked with include the Buzzcocks (and their lead singer gone solo, Pete Shelley), the Stranglers, XTC, Generation X (Billy Idol), the Go-Go's (Belinda Carlisle) and Altered Images.

Before his career with punk and new wave bands, he worked on records by T Rex, David Essex and Shirley Bassey.

He was reportedly working on a 30th anniversary edition of Dare.

Rushent was 63.
