History: A native
New Yorker, Nevins began Dj-ing while working at one of the top
radio stations while in college at Arizona State University.
On returning back East, he began creating his first batch
of mixes. After producing a handful of his own tracks
he set his site for the remix arena. Jason rocketed to international
fame with his mix of the Run-DMC classic “It’s like that,” which
topped pop charts across world, selling over 5 million copies.
Some of Jason’s subsequent work also reflected his love for
80’s hits, with reworkings of Kool and the Gang’s “Celebration”
and Rob Base’s “It takes Two” as well as alco’s “Der Komissar” and
Toni Basil’s “Mickey.” He has a masterful ear for making pop/club
crossover records, but also excels in underground mixes and is now
expanding more into production. DJ/producer/re-mixer Jason Nevins
credits include: Cypress Hill,
Hole, Jay-Z, Puff Daddy & Lill Kim, Apollo 440, Maxwell, Savage
Garden, Missy Elliot, House of
Pain, S Club 7. Jason has been adding his magic touch to a host
of International mega-stars to include: Ricky Martin "Maria',
Robbie Williams "Rock DJ", Prince, Britney Spears "Lucky",
Backstreet Boys, Janet Jackson and will Smith. He mixed a classic
Run DMC &Aerosmith vs Jason Nevins "Walk This Way"
plus Eros Rammazzotti's new single.
Its been a while since the Run-DMC record came out but
for the past 3 1/2 years, I’ve doing a lot of rock/dance and rock/hip
hop fusions such as the remix I did of "Rock Star" by
N.E.R.D ,my mix of Elvis’ "Rubberneckin", the massive
International remix of “Work It” by Nelly featuring Justin Timberlake.
I just did a new track for my album called “Git Money” which features
the The Young Gunz and legendary rocker Billy Squier.” Jason says.
Since working on the fusion rock sound for about 3 ½ years
now and it is doing really well for me.” Because of incorporating
rock elements into dance and hip hop- Im getting calls for artists
like Duran Duran, Anastacia and Kelly Clarkson who want me to use
my unique mixture of different styles into their songs.” I worked
with Duran Duran on "(Reach Up For The) Sunrise" for their
new album on Sony and it did extremely well al over the World- I
remixed 2 other songs from that album and they were kind enough
to work with me on “Alive", a new track for my album.”
