David Martin Kahne is a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer. He has produced a massive collection of albums and singles for artists such as Paul McCartney and Tony Bennett, which have received various industry accolades. He and Lana Del Rey began working together at some point in 2007 (this is known because the Lana Del Ray album masters were finished as of February 2008), and produced her debut studio album after he had received her demo tape, No Kung Fu. On working with Kahne, Del Rey stated:

"My producer, David Kahne, and me got along very well because he knew that I lived in my songs, and so he just tried to make them better. He asked me in a letter what I wanted the record to sound like, and I said, "I want it to sound famous, like a sad party." He thought that was a wonderful idea, and we began working the next day. I like to think we're birds of a feather."[1]

The two recorded every day for around 3 months to produce the entirety of Del Rey's first EP, Kill Kill, and her first studio album, Lana Del Ray.
