Berlin native Schneider is responsible for some of the most successful records of the past few years. He produced the Beatsteaks' breakthrough album on the German charts. He has also produced for Tocotronic, Fehlfarben, Dendemann, Kreator and others. In 2008, Schneider was nominated for the German music prize "Echo" with his work on Tocotronic's "Kapitulation" and Beatsteaks' "Limbo Messiah".
Moses Schneider is a German music producer and runs a recording studio. He became well known primarily through his work with German rock bands like the Beatsteaks, Kreator and Tocotronic. Schneider started getting involved with recording studio technology in 1982 with his former band Nachdruck. From 1985 to 1987, he worked as assistant to Hans-Ulrich Weigel in Berlin at Sinus Studio before he moved on to Hansa Tonstudio to work with Tom Müller in 1987.
In 1989 he completed his training and moved from Berlin to Hamburg, returning in November 1990 to his home town after the wall came down. His first international credit came in 1990: together with Gil Norton, he produced the Pixies "Bossanova" album. Between 1991 and 1996, he was part of the producer team Bauknex. In 1996, he founded Transporterraum studio together with Bernd "Ben" Lauber in Berlin. Schneider also had some band experience himself in the band Gum and as bass player for Susie van der Meer.
The press describes Moses Schneider as THE champion of live recordings! In many of his productions, he records all instruments at the same time in one room. Schneider captures the live quality of each artist in their own way, which characterizes the sound of his productions.
Working with the producer of the Strokes, Gordon Raphael, was another milestone in Moses' career. Schneider helped the Strokes producer, then based in New York, to success - he inspired Raphael in everything from choice of equipment to musical interpretation.
