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.

Ryder – Sade

Ryder

Ryder is truly a modern songstress of the new school music generation. Having quickly risen above the noise with a star power and vocal ability reminiscent of divas like Bjork, Florence and Sia and demonstrating the reckless songwriting spirit of a young M.I.A. Her sound is a mixture of slow, floating melodies and soulful yet left-of-center and unapologetic lyrics; ear candy packed with endless introspection. Ryder’s quirky, eclectic style and unconventional voice have gained her a massive and dedicated following and recognition in a short time. With only a few releases out the gate, her forthcoming work is highly anticipated and hotly tipped for future endeavors.

Growing up in NY, Ryder was considered a child prodigy, starting to sing at just the age of 3. She dove heavily into classical, choral, opera and folk music. Having a natural writing ability that started to develop while messing around in the studio of a family member who was a notable producer of music for shows like Entertainment Tonight & Access Hollywood. By her mid-teens Ryder was hopping around studios in NYC writing and recording with writer/producers like Dave Tozer (“All of Me” John Legend), Angela Hunte (“New York State of Mind” Jay-Z/Alicia Keys”), Claude Kelly (“Party in the USA” Miley Cyrus), Frankie Storm (“Take A Bow” Rihanna) and Jeremy Skaller (“Down” Jay Sean). Thereafter, attending NYU with other buzzing classmates like Gallant, Felix Snow and RL Grime. Upon her move to LA, Ryder spent two years locked in the studio developing her sound and then practically making waves overnight with the release of her first single “Pretty Little Gangster”. Big channels like Mr.Suicide Sheep got wind of her sound and started blasting her music to their massive audiences. Since that time and with more releases under her belt, Ryder has only continued to grow creatively and in popularity with each release. Despite a noisy market of indie artists coming up these days, Ryder is clear standout from the frey both vocally and as a songwriter, amassing an incredible amount of views, streams and fan support across the internet and all platforms. Over the past year, once again Ryder was locked away in the studio with everyone from JKash to Dave Sitek, Tim Anderson, Chris Braide, Daniel Heath, Paul Phamous, Cody Tarpley and most recently electronic duo Broods cooking up a catalogue of new material and honing her creativity further.
