The Las Vegas DJ Show is excited to welcome songwriters, producers and remixers Jason Nevins & Chris Cox!

Nevins is most widely known for his pop dance productions, including his multi-platinum, multi-million selling production of “It’s Like That” by US rap group Run-D.M.C which reached #1 in more than 30 countries and more than $5 million dollars in worldwide sales. In 2013 Nevins produced the Top 40 version for the #1 selling Country group Florida Georgia Line’s hit single “Cruise” featuring superstar rapper Nelly.
