no such thing as a dumb question!

RECORD PRODUCER :
When music is "produced" by someone, that can mean anything from they paid for the studio time, to they made the musical decisions, directed the studio staff and outside musicians, and took care of the budget. In conjunction with the recording artist, a producer is responsible for the music on the final ("master") tape, from which CDs, cassettes, and vinyl records are made. A producer's job is equal parts musical (he or she is the one who usually says, "You're playing too fast" or "You sang that part flat -- start over again") and psychological (possessing the ability to say such things in a way that will actually get the person to do them better).
In rap, R&B, and hip hop, the producer's role is often more like that of a musician. Since much of the music in these genres is generated by technology, the producer will often create the "tracks" (the music). The tracks are then mixed so that the sounds on all of the songs are at the right levels. Often times, producers will even take part in deciding which songs will appear on an album and the order in which they will appear.


He's so important because he's the best Avex has, and has produced excellent work consistantly for many years. He and Ayu pretty much equal Avexm without them Avex would pretty much be broke.

hope this helps.

Auto-translation from Sponichi:

By the managing director, major record companies "Avex" (the head office and Minato-ku, Tokyo, the Yoda 巽会長-president), it cut that the music producer and Matsuura true 在 people (39) who has produced a large number of the Ayumi Hamasaki (25) stars had tendered their resignation on July 30 the part on the 31st. Managing director Ryuhei Chiba (40) who was the production "AKUSHIVU" president to whom it unites and Hamazaki and others belongs is likely to resign, and a big ripple is likely to be called for the music industry from now on. So to speak, Mr. Matsuura is one of the leading players of Avex foundation. The reason of the retirement is worrisome. It is concluded that it became the cause of resignation presentation that the dismissal motion to managing director Chiba who has trusted it was approved by the board of directors to whom it was carried out on the 30th according to two or more persons concerned. It seems that moreover, Mr. Matsuura is told that the opinion was opposed to Chairman Yoda by how from before to future music industry to tackle, management policy, etc., and this also became the cause of leaving. Since Mr. Matsuura worked at a part-time job during university enrollment in school in the store of a record on hire in Yokohama, music life starts him. The love for dance music develops, an import record wholesaler and Avex DI DI will be established in April, 88, and Chairman Yoda and an enterprise will be developed. Sharp has been used as a producer after that. Rode on the disco boom, trf was made for a hit album to come out from manufacture and the encounter with Tetsuya Komuro, and Namie Amuro, ELT, Ayumi Hamasaki, and the large record company that holds many artists who fire BoA million sellers were made to grow rapidly further. It also became the model of the TOEI movie "a dream maker" manufactured by ISSA starring of DA PUMP in 99. On the other hand, Mr. Chiba changed to production management from the planner of a disco "maharaja", and he has served as the "AKUSHIVU" representative which holds globe besides Hamazaki, and hitomi popular artist a large number since 97. From now on, what deployment do two persons show? Moreover, a sudden resignation play attracts [ what influence it has on an artist or the music industry, and ] attention.

I, too, had read that ayu was practically producing, and it seemed that matsuura just tacked his name onto her records (probably due to contract). Ayu holds him in very high regard, so I'm unsure of how would she would take this. How would it be possible for all of his artists to move with him, when 1) they are probably still under some type of major contract with avex trax itself and 2) he's opening up an import wholesale. An import record wholesale doesn't seem it would have artists under it. I personally hope this doesn't majorly affect ayu and the other artists he produced. If all of these major artists would stop being with avex or singing all together, it will collapse.

*semi-OT*ew, that's max? x_x no wonder he hardly ever makes live appearances that i've seen. TK is much better looking, but that has nothing to do with music.

No. According to those articles he is leaving avex entirely, not just changing his role there.

Then what about that "Avex DI DI" bit? An auto-translation glitch? Or perhaps it meant what he was currently (or now, formerly) doing?

This will probably affect Ayumi personally, though I don't know if it'll affect her career-wise. As others have said, she holds Max in very high regard, in part because he's the one who jump-started her career. There's also no doubt that he's incredibly talented in his field, so this will probably signal a change in Avex's future.

That was the initial form of avex established by him back in 1988.

I really wouldn't doubt if Ayu left or made some big changes because he found her and practically forced her to sing. He's been behind her the whole time, and I think he's the only one she's worked with. This is so unexpected. =0

Auto-translations suck. Don't use them.
