Jason Herd Over the past 25 years, Jason Herd has garnished worldwide acclaim under numerous monikers including Juan Kidd and Herd & Fitz. He's released his signature vocal house sound on the world's biggest labels including Defected, One Love, Sondos, Subliminal, Size, Toolroom, CR2, Azuli, Moody and many others. On your journey throughout clubland, you're sure to have heard his Juan Kidd & Felix Baumgartner classic “Now You're Gone feat. Lisa Millett” released on Defected and which was parked at Beatport's #1 spot for weeks. His Herd & Fitz ft Abigail Bailey track “I Just Can't Get Enough”, released on Subliminal records, landed in the Top-20 in 16 countries!

Jason is also one of the UK's most respected DJs initially famous for his warm up sets back in the day for the like of David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Erick Morillo and Joey Negro to name a few. He has graced the cover of DJ Mag with a “Live at Byblos Glasgow” mix compilation and has held residencies at Subliminal Sessions, Gods Kitchen, Gatecrasher and Sankeys in his hometown of Manchester UK.

He has also performed at the world's biggest clubs and festivals including Global Gathering, Creamfields, Space Ibiza, Pacha Ibiza, Amnesia Ibiza, Stereosonic Festival Australia, One Love Australia, Redlight Paris, Space, Toolroom Knights and Pacha Brazil.

At every step of the way Jason produces music at the highest possible level, often writing and collaborating with talented session players and seasoned vocalists to achieve a sound that is both polished, yet retains the edginess and thickness that captivates the dance floor and hits in all the right places. His skillset is one that spans all areas of expertise including sequencing, tracking, arranging, mixing, mastering and even how to make sure your tracks have what the labels want.

Vincent di Pasquale

With a music career spanning 20 years, there's nothing that Vince doesn't know about creating awesome tracks that get dancefloors shaking across the globe.

Just check out the glistening records framed along his hallways, representing industry breakthroughs with the likes of Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, One Republic, Mariah Carey and Missy Elliott, among others.

"I always try to change it up in my productions," he says, "throwing in live instruments and giving the track a human factor." Like having a local saxophonist jam on his extended remix of Maria Carey's “Say Something.” Or incorporating a live bass guitar in his remix of Madonna's “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 sales status, almost unheard of in today's digital world.

Questions?

If you can't find the answer below to your question, don't hesitate to get in touch with our customer services team and they'll be sure to help you out.

 
What is Mentor My Production?

It's a live 1-on-1 online video mentoring service where you get to work on your own music with one of our highly experienced industry pro producers.

Tapping into the creative and technical expertise of our mentors means you'll learn invaluable techniques to boost your production skills and rapidly take your tracks to the next level.

 
How does it work? What's the process?

Once you've purchased one of the Mentor My Production packages, here's what happens:

  • We'll get in touch with you to set up an initial call (not counted as one of your sessions) to talk about what you're stuck on and what you want to achieve. We'll also get your session dates and times booked in our mentoring calendar.
  • We'll get you set up with the Audiomovers LISTENTO plugin so that when we have our sessions together your mentor can hear the high quality audio coming directly from your DAW.
  • When the date and time of your first session comes around, connect live over Zoom (or Google Meet if you prefer). You'll have your DAW open, publishing audio from the master bus out via LISTENTO and sharing your screen so our mentor can see it and guide you through the session.
  • You can record the session if you like - that way you can refer back to it easily in the future.
  • Even though we'll have set out the goals of your mentoring in the initial call, they can flex as each session progresses.
  • At the end of each session, your mentor will set out some suggested practice activities for you to do ready for the next session.
 
How will we be able to work inside the DAW?

You'll have your DAW running on your computer with screen sharing on so your mentor can see what you're doing. The audio from the DAW will stream out from the master bus via LISTENTO so your mentor will hear exactly what you're hearing in high quality audio.

LISTENTO is a subscription service from Audiomovers - your first 3 months are free as part of your Mentor My Production purchase.

 
What topics will my mentor cover?

That's totally up to you!

During the initial call, we'll uncover the issues that you're facing - what you're stuck on, what you want to improve, what you're not clear about and what you want to achieve. From that conversation, your mentor will be able to identify the topics to be covered in your sessions. Of course, once the sessions start you can ask about and get help on anything you like!

 
What is Audiomovers LISTENTO?

It's a plugin that sits inside your DAW and streams high quality audio over the internet. It comes as part of your Mentor My Production purchase and we'll walk you through the setup in the first initial call so you're ready when your first mentoring session comes around.

As you're working with your mentor, they'll be able to hear high quality audio directly from your DAW via the internet stream coming from LISTENTO.

 
I don't have Audiomovers LISTENTO. Is that a problem?

No. LISTENTO is a subscription-based product and you get three months free as part of your Mentor My Production purchase.

 
Do I get to choose my own mentor?

Not at the moment, no. We'll pick your mentor for you based on a number of factors including what you want to work on as well as practicalities of scheduling.

 
Do I stay with the same mentor for all sessions?

Yes, absolutely.

Mentoring works best when you're able to stick with the same mentor as you build your skills. So we'll make sure once you start you get to work with the same person.

 
Why do I have to buy 4 sessions rather than just 1?

With the launch of this brand new mentoring service, we're keen to balance the cost and effectiveness of your sessions. We believe having multiple sessions will allow you to consolidate your learning better, thereby bringing you greater value. After each session, you'll be working on things your mentor has tasked you with so follow-up check-ins and further advice will ensure your skills get stronger and more embedded in your workflow.

 
Do the sessions have to be a week apart?

No. During our initial call with you we'll work out a schedule for each of your sessions so it fits with your diary. A week between them is a good rough guide, but it's not set in stone. Flexibility rules.

 
What commitment do I need to make?

Good question. Mentor My Production is a commitment on both our parts - on our mentors and on you. So we'll expect you to attend all 4 sessions and between them put into practice what you've learned. But hey, that's nothing more than you'd expect or want from a service that you're spending your hard-earned cash on, right?

 
Can I work in any DAW?

Yes. We expect you to be working in your DAW of choice.
