As one of the original pioneers of the early 1990s hardcore breakbeat/techno scene (which eventually evolved into drum & bass), Nigel had a string of dance chart hits in the UK, under aliases such as Release and Rhythm Junior.
Nigel Broad
Initially signed to the Contagious Records (UK) label as an artist and producer, Nigel soon took on the roles of co-executive producer and head of A&R at the label.

Trained as an audio engineer at the world-famous Marquee Studios in London, Nigel would often produce and engineer for other artists at the labels' 24-track studio in Dagenham, Essex, preferring the solace of the studio to the business side of running a label.

In 1994, Nigel relocated to Los Angeles, California, to work as a composer and digital artist for film & TV. Since then, Nigel has had over 100 tracks placed in network and cable TV shows, in commercials, and several movies.

It was while working for Apple's ProApps division in 2002 that Nigel first discovered Logic, and soon after became an Apple Certified Pro in Logic Pro. Nigel has over 25 years experience in nearly every aspect of music production to share with you, with tips, tricks and production secrets to help you get the most from your music!
