Music Mystro is a Grammy nominated Multi Platinum Producer and DJ born and raised in the Bronx, NY. He grew up listening to a variety of music ranging from Michael Jackson to Prince to Marvin Gaye, Slick Rick and Big Daddy Kane. At age 11 Mystro started learning how to DJ by going to his next door neighbor's house and playing records. There he learned how to catch drops, breaks, snares and kicks. A year later Mystro picked another hobby which consisted of writing rhymes, and recording them in a home studio down the block from his house. Around the age of 17 his interest in music production peaked due to a falling out with a producer he was working with. During this time, Mystro also began interning at Entertainment Records where he learned from each department such as Promotions, A&R and Marketing. On Some Nights he would find himself in the studio with producers Lance "Un" Rivera and Darrell 'Digga" Branch. He's always had quick eyes and a keen sense of hearing which aided him to try to figure out what "Un" and Digga doing. Mystro questioned each and every move...

At the age of 20, he met Sacario who was signed to, at that time, Elektra Records. Mystro managed to land 7 songs on the 17 track street album, which gave him a heavy street buzz. To date Mystro has been blessed to produce many songs and has worked industry heavy hitters like former Murder Inc. Super Producer Chink Santana, LL Cool J,  Smif n Wessun, The Clipse, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Jr Writer, Young City aka Chopper formerly of Bad Boys Da Band, A+, Product G&B, Reggae/Dancehall artist Lexxxus, and Many More. Mystro has had the opportunity to DJ for Chopper, Mr. Cheeks, Lil Troy, The And 1 Streetballers and many other artists all across the country. 

Mystro also won the 2010 Underground Music Award for The Best Emerging Producer of The Year but says he is nowhere near pleased or satisfied with the little accomplishments that he has made thus far; and as long as he has his team behind him, supporting him, he's not going to stop until he feels he's done everything he can to make himself one of the elite producers in the industry. He is currently the resident DJ and Judge for Coast 2 Coast LIVE in NYC, Fleet DJ Producer Manager and working with artist such as Grafh, NBC's The Voice's Ali Caldwell, Dirty Cash, Cali Budd, Naza da Great and others.
