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 Studio.
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 Sia, Moby, Morcheeba and the Dandy Warhols.
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 Jem, Bryan Adams, Dave Gahan and Giggs, among others, choose him as their creative partner, trusting that he will breathe life into their music.
With over thirty number 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.
