This week, Nevada sat down to chat on the EDM Prodcast.
Nevada is an American songwriter and producer currently based in Stockholm. His debut single ‘The Mack’, which is a rework of Mark Morrison’s 1996 hit ‘Return Of The Mack’, has amassed over 380 million streams globally and climbed the Top-10 charts in multiple countries. Outside of his original music, he’s released official remixes for artists like Liam Payne, Charli XCX, and Ed Sheeran.
We start off with Nevada’s background, discussing his move to Nashville, his first studio apprenticeship, and signing his band to an indie. He discusses how the songwriting scene in Nashville positively shaped his skills as an artist, and why he’s glad he ended up in Stockholm where he’s currently living. He also breaks down how he gained the connections that led him to working with A-list artists, offering his best networking and marketing advice for hungry producers.
On the production side, we discuss several aspects of Nevada’s technical and songwriting workflows. He explains his best strategies for finishing more music, which includes adding the kick and bass last, as well as best practices when working with vocalists and songwriters. He also breaks down why he’s a big fan of iZotope Iris 2, how he approaches filling out more minimal mixes, and why producers need to embrace creating revisions of their songs.
