In the urban heart of London, sonic craftsman Yoad Nevo is a master at work, producing and mixing music at his state-of-the-art Nevo Sound Studios.

It’s here that Yoad worked his magic on the Pet Shop Boys’ acclaimed ‘Yes’ album, Goldfrapp’s hit ‘Strict Machine’ and Sugababes’ classic ‘Freak Like Me’, as well as countless other chart topping singles and albums by artists diverse as SiaMobyMorcheeba and the DandyWarhols.

Yoad’s extensive discography ranges from producing hi-octane pop tunes by Girls Aloud to mixing underground, electronic pieces by Air or club hits including Sophie Ellis Bextor‘s ‘Murder on the Dance Floor’.

His artistry lies in his ability to give everything he works on a slick, future-perfect finish – be it pop, electronica, rock or anything he feels has ‘that special thing’. Yet he’s always sensitive to the artist’s vision, always offering a unique insight on what is right for a song.

The thread running through his multi-genre discography is what captures the essence of Yoad’s sound; it’s a crystalline precision and tightness with prominent synths and a big beat that characterises his sonic wizardry, and which has secured his place as one of the most in-demand Producer/Mixers in the industry today.

Yoad started playing guitar aged ten and quickly moved onto recording his own music using a Revox reel-to-reel tape machine, three microphones and an old drum kit. By his mid teens he was producing and engineering music for other people too. As a multi-instrumentalist with a razor-sharp technical mind, his eagerness to explore how machinery and computers could manipulate traditional instruments grew into an aptitude for making sounds that push boundaries and take music further.

The result is Yoad’s very individual approach to making music, which takes a 360-degree perspective. He’s been inventing and developing plug-ins for Grammy Award winners Waves, and his registered patents, his book ׳Hit Record – An Inside Track To Music Production׳ and his popular webinars have paved the way for other producers and engineers.

Yoad’s artistic sensibility combined with innovative techniques make his productions stand out, while his personality and talent have made world-class artists such as JemBryan AdamsDave Gahan and Giggs, among others, choose him as their creative partner, trusting that he will breathe life into their music.

With over thirty #1 singles, more than fifty Top 10 albums and over sixty Top 10 singles worldwide, Yoad Nevo has gained the trust and respect of the musicians he is working with – and the best is yet to come.

Skai – Hooked

Skai

New Haven born Skai has officially returned after a brief hiatus and big move from London to New York. She’s back and ready with her new single Hooked. Accumulating over 20,000 views on Soundcloud, with a collection of oft-praised R&B/soul numbers – Rick Ross-inspired ‘Thugs Cry’ featuring Lil Wayne, the indecisive introspection of ‘Trust Issues’ alongside Bueffard Mallary, sexy slow jam ‘Pieces’, and the uber-submissively yet playful ‘Action.

She has received a plethora of high-profile kudos – and certified stamped approval – from 6-time Grammy Award winning producer, Jimi Kendrix (Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne), DJ Blazita (Jay-Z 40/40 former resident DJ in NY), and DJ Bedtyme (Remy Ma Official DJ).

Lenii – Human

Ellen Murphy know as the music artist Lenii is a singer, songwriter, music producer and multi-instrumentalist from Cork, Ireland. Her musical journey started with classical violin at age 4 but, since discovering the endless possibilities in producing electronic music, she developed a love for fusing different genres and styles. At 15 years old she moved to New York to further her skills in music production, and subsequently spent years involved in the underground electronic music scene.

Her first single release of 2018 is ‘Human’, a subject of 80’s synth-pop influences and a forward-thinking approach to the underground electronic music scene. Having originally composed ballads and instrumentals from as young as 7, her musical style now showcases the melodic songwriting from her roots, mixed with electronic production reminiscent of the 80’s synth-pop era.

Her music is centred around her ethereal vocals and moving lyrics that focus on social and emotional subjects. Sent awash by reverb-drenched anthemic beats and twinkling synthesizers that shine bright matching a starlit night, her delivery of effervescent vocal qualities and reflective lyricism shows her clear pop qualities on full display.

Commenting more on the single, Lenii states “Today’s world is so divided and when it comes down to it we’re all human, we all feel the same emotions and deal with the same things.”
