Mysto & Pizzi are two up and coming producers, ages 23 and 22, hailing out of Queens, New York, who are quickly establishing a name for themselves in the world of Pop and R&B music. Their first major placement was on R. Kelly’s “Double Up” album ( track “Get Dirty feat. Chamillionaire”) which debuted at 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned the production duo their first Platinum Plaque. They then quickly followed up with their second major release on Kelly Rowland’s album “Ms. Kelly” (track “Love”) which received great reviews and opened several doors for the duo. Since then Mysto & Pizzi have been hard at work on several major projects as well as official remixes for artists such as Justin Timberlake, Ciara, Beyonce and Britney Spears. In 2009 Mysto & Pizzi landed their cover of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” on the new national GEICO “Kash” Campaign airing now. The duo has also been working a lot with several established as well as up and coming songwriters such as Ryan Tedder (of OneRepublic), Evan Bogart, Makeba Riddick, Taj Jackson, Solange Knowles, Christina Milian, Wynter Gordon, Lil’ Eddie and Eritza (of Esquared), Corey Williams (a.k.a Latif), Phyllis & Cannon, Ilya S., and Renald Francoeur.
