About Vincent Di Pasquale

Vincent DiPasquale

Over the past decade, Vincent DiPasquale has been making music for some of today’s most celebrated artists.  As an engineer at the world-renowned Hit Factory/Criteria in Miami, Florida, Vincent worked on projects for artists including Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Alan Jackson, Jay-Z, Lil’
Wayne, Scott Storch and many many others.
As a producer, Vincent’s work caught the eye of one of the world’s most iconic female artists of all time—Madonna, and has completed official remixes for her last two albums; MDNA (2012)  and Hard Candy (2008).  Under the name ReBirth, Vincent’s remixes were featured on her hit single “Girl Gone Wild”
along with Aviccii and Dada Life as well as official remix packages for her hit singles “Miles Away” and “4 Minutes” (feat.  Justin Timberlake), which reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Club Play chart.  The single also went on to earn double-platinum status, almost unheard of in today’s digital world.
Vincent has also produced and remixed tracks for many other chart-topping hits from artists including Timbaland, Nelly Furtado, Mariah Carey, Erick Morillo and one of electronic music’s most iconic vocalists—Nadia Ali.
Vincent has been the recipient of multiple accolades from within the music industry, including being honored as “Favorite Dance Mix Innovator” by the American Society of Young Musicians in 2010. He also serves as on the Board of Governors for the GRAMMYS®  and sits on the Producer’s and Engineers Wing of
the Recording Academy.
In addition to his hectic studio schedule, Vincent is also passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience with aspiring producers and musicians.  His latest venture, FaderPro is dedicated to offering aspiring young producers the ability to virtually sit in this studio while they watch and learn how
music is really made. “Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to learn by working with some of the most successful producers on the planet,” explains Vincent. “And people are constantly asking me if they can just “sit in” the studio and watch. That is the concept with FaderPro and now,
the answer can finally be ‘yes.’…. I am very excited about it!”

Vincent truly is at the forefront of modern music production.
