Hugo & Luigi were a record producing team, made up of songwriters and producers [a=Luigi Creatore] and [a=Hugo Peretti], who shared an office in New York's Brill Building. Besides their working relationship, the two were cousins.

First coming to attention with singles released on [l=Mercury] Records in the mid-1950s, they went on to produce [a=Perry Como], [a=Elvis Presley], [a=Sam Cooke] and other artists for [l=RCA Victor], including the hit records "Twistin' The Night Away", "Another Saturday Night", "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by [a=Tokens, The], [a=Isley Brothers, The]' classic "Shout", and [a=Little Peggy March]'s "I Will Follow Him".

They co-wrote Presley's hit "Can't Help Falling in Love", with [a=George David Weiss].

Hugo & Luigi were also onetime co-owners of [l=Roulette Records].

Songs composed by the duo were often credited to "Mark Markwell", and records they produced carried their distinct logo. While at Roulette, Hugo and Luigi produced and arranged a series of "Cascading Voices" and later "[a=Cascading Strings]" easy listening recordings.

After co-founding [l=Avco Records] in 1968 and producing artists such as [a=Stylistics, The] in the 1970s, Hugo & Luigi bought the label and relaunched it as [l12098], which they ran until they retired at the end of the 1970s. Peretti died in 1986.
