Jason Nevins (born 1974) is an American record producer, remixer and DJ whose work has included a remix of Duran Duran's "Sunrise" & "Virus"


In the early 1990s Nevins began releasing house singles under various monikers through Strictly Rhythm Records, but achieved global recognition in 1996 with his production of Run-DMC's "It's Like That", which was released under the title Run-DMC vs. Jason Nevins, reaching the #1 spot in over 30 countries, including the German Top 100 and the UK Top 40 charts. It went on to sell a staggering five million copies. The single also halted the Spice Girls (then record) run of six consecutive #1's with their first six singles, holding the Spice Girls' seventh release, "Stop", at #2.

Nevins followed up "It's Like That" with a string of hip-house remixes, with Run-DMC's "Tricky", 2 Live Crew's "We Want Some..." and Cypress Hill's "Insane In The Brain" all featuring on his 1999 album Uni-Vs-Al (Universal). In 2001, he started to add a rock vibe to his remixes and productions, working on tracks for artists as varied as N.E.R.D, The Bloodhound Gang and Duran Duran, which included a remix of "Sunrise" released on the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy soundtrack. Nevins has also revisited producing his own work, with a release on the UK based-Sanctuary Records, entitled The Funk Rocker, which included "Alive" which sampled "Hungry Like The Wolf". In October 2004 he reached major airplay in Europe with his pseudonym, UKNY with the track "I'm In Heaven", featuring vocals by Holly James. "Heaven" went to # 9 on the UK Top 40. Jason has had numerous songs and remixes used in feature films, TV commercials and video games. In late 2007, Nevins collaborated with Dannii Minogue on a track entitled "Touch Me Like That" with a video being shot at Pinewood Studios in the UK.
