Where to start? This little bastard’s been releasing music worldwide since the tender age of 19. As both a producer and an MC the Toronto native’s credentials stack up quite impressively. Since releasing his debut 12” in 2003 on indy hip-hop powerhouse Definitive Jux he hasn’t looked back. It wasn’t long before he was touring alongside some of hip-hop’s most prestigious names including Raekwon, GZA, The Pharcyde, MURS & RJD2 just to name a few. In the studio, his resumé boasts impressive collabos with the likes of: Cannibal Ox, 45 King, Pete Rock, U-God (Wu-Tang), Akrobatik, C-Rayz Walz, Sammy Bananas (Fool’s Good), Simahlak & many more.His latest venture, The SHEEN Brothers, has paired Pyramid with NYC DJ legend Cosmo Baker (The Rub). With Cosmo on the ones and twos and Pyramid on the MPD, these two have smoothed out their own brand of sexy dancefloor flavor, what they like to call Scumbag Funk, and the people want more.If he’s not running around the globe on tour, or scoring ad campaigns & TV Spots, then he’s probably locked up in the studio recording his upcoming solo album “Twice As Strong”.- Produces 1st full 12” single of his career at NYC’s legendary D&D Studios (2001).- Releases MC debut 12” Aquatic b/w War With Orcs as lead single to Definitive Jux Pt.

W/ GRIND FAMILY DEE JAY FRAME - RIDGEFOUR/DIAMONDS IN THE KUT
(pronounced "E-Mind") is a Philadelphia-based DJ and Producer that has made his mark by successfully producing an extremely wide variety of Club-crushing anthems that range in style from Baltimore Club, New Orleans Bounce, House, and Old School Electro/Bass to traditional Hip-Hop production work with a variety of MCs. While most successful producers are renowned for a single signature sound or style, Emynd's interests are much too broad to be limited to one sound, forcing him to master an extremely wide variety of aesthetic styles. Emynd's unique ability to produce tracks in a diverse set of music styles is best illustrated by his motley discography made up of work on the Philly-based boutiqe Label FLAMIN HOTZ; the German Electronic Music label EQUINOX; Diplo's MAD DECENT; Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK; Independent Hip-Hop Label EASTERN CONFERENCE; legendary Baltimore Club label UNRULY RECORDS; and forthcoming releases on his own label with DJ partner Bo Bliz, CROSSFADED BACON. Emynd also just finished songs with Rocafella and Def Jam Recording Artist Young Chris from the Young Guns, up and coming New Orleans Bounce producer Peacachoo, Philly rapper Reef the Lost Cauze, and several other surprises. More than just a talented producer, Emynd is also a well-established DJ that started the legendary "White Ts & White Belts" party in Philadelphia (along with Dan the Swede and Bo Bliz) that boasts an impressive line up of guests from DJs like Diplo, Low Budget, Scottie B, and Blaqstarr to major rappers like Freeway, Peedi Crakk, Beanie Sigel, and Slick Rick. Additionally, Emynd regularly produces tracks that have shown up in the live sets and mixtape selections of a rich collection of DJs both at home and abroad: Diplo, Sinden, Annie Mac, Nadastrom, DJ Fashen, Stretch Armstrong, Scottie B, K-Swift, DJ Eli, Tittsworth, The Jokers of The Scene, Cosmo Baker, the Top Billin’s DJs, and DJ Benzi amongst others. Emynd has also traveled extensively throughout the US and abroad showcasing his production and DJ talents and is planning several mini-tours over the coming months to bolster his already busy DJ schedule at home in Philly. He currently has up-coming performance appearances scheduled in Baltimore, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Toronto, and has DJed all over the world including gigs in Stockholm, Malmo, Copenhagen, Munich, London, LA, Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal, and more.
