Martin Hannett (May 31, 1948April 18, 1991), sometimes credited as Martin Zero, was an innovative record producer closely associated with Joy Division and Factory Records.

He helped develop Joy Division and co-founded Factory Records with Tony Wilson. Hannett's trademark sound, most apparent on Joy Division's groundbreaking debut album Unknown Pleasures and its follow-up, Closer, is sparse and eerie, complementing frontman Ian Curtis' dark, depressive musings and tremulous baritone vocals.
