Chris Hughes (born Christopher Merrick Hughes, 3 March 1954, in London, England) is a music producer and a former drummer for Adam and the Ants.

Hughes, also known as "Merrick", was educated at Emanuel School in London, and was a member of Adam and the Ants, also producing their albums, Kings of the Wild Frontier and Prince Charming. Hughes was awarded Music Week’s "Producer of the Year" award for his work on the album, Kings of the Wild Frontier. He co-wrote Tears for Fears' hit song "Everybody Wants to Rule the World", and produced their first two albums, The Hurting and the platinum selling album Songs from the Big Chair. Hughes also produced The Electric Soft Parade's debut album, Holes in the Wall, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and Propaganda's 1234. Hughes was also a member of Dalek I Love You, is credited as LinnDrum programmer on Peter Gabriel's single, "Shock the Monkey" and co-produced Gabriel's "Red Rain".

In February 1994 Hughes released Shift, his first solo album, which was re-released in July 2008. Shift was a tribute to American minimalist composer, Steve Reich. In 1972, Hughes' father took him to London to see Reich's performance of Drumming. Hughes credits Reich as a driving influence in his career. Shift uses fragments of Reich's work and "subjects it to subtle manipulations using the technology of recorded sound."
