Biography

JASON NEVINS IS THE LEADER OF ROCK DANCE! Just listen to his remixes of Duran Duran, Rob Thomas, Kelly Clarkson or Anastacia. Even before the media hype on groups like The Killers and Franz Ferdinand- Jason was cranking out tunes with bangin’ club beats and rockin’ guitars. If you listen to any sort of dance music or even pop radio then I’m sure you have heard of Jason Nevins or at least one of his productions. A talented producer and remixer, Jason’s name became ubiquitous with the release of the now classic: Jason Nevins vs. RUN-DMC ‘It’s Like That”

Way before his impressive hit, Jason had been enjoying a long and illustrious relationship with music - not just making it, but being passionate about his love for it too. “I’ve always been into various types of music” he explains “Not just dance music but everything from 70’s tunes to 80’s pop, tons of classic rock… and everything in between.” “Dance is only a small portion of the music that I really enjoy and listen to…my musical taste encompasses a very wide spectrum.”

Jason picked up on dance music in the early 80’s when he heard mixed tapes circulating around his native New York. While going to college (originally a graphic design major), Jason eventually changed his major to Telecommunication and embarked in the exciting field of television and radio as well as landing a slot on a major market radio station. There, Jason played a diverse mix of underground New York house and more mainstream dance on the radio as well as in the clubs. After graduating and moving back to New York though, Jason initially traveled on the underground, making cut & paste tracks for a wealth of dance labels.
