EMYND (pronounced "E-Mind") & BO BLIZ are a DJ and production duo based in Philly that have made their mark by throwing uncompromising parties that attract a truly diverse audience made up of people from all ages, ethnicities, and income brackets. They have traveled extensively showcasing their talents and, most notably, make up two thirds (with Dan the Swede) of Phillys now-defunct legendary party "White Ts & White Belts," boasting an impressive line up of performing guests from DJs like Diplo, Low Budget, Scottie B, and Blaqstarr to major rappers like Rocafella and Def Jam recording artists Freeway, Peedi Crakk, Beanie Sigel, and Slick Rick.

They are renown for the unique ability to play a wide variety of dance musics without resorting to pretenses of irony and/or kitsch and have proven themselves to be forward thinking producers with releases on a variety of labels like FLAMIN HOTZ, EQUINOX, Diplo's MAD DECENT, FULLY FITTED, the legendary Baltimore Club label UNRULY RECORDS, and forthcoming work on their own record label CROSSFADED BACON.

Playing all regional styles of hip-hop from any conceivable time period--from traditional NY Bangers to Crunk to True-School-House-Party-Anthems to Hyphy to New Orleans Bounce EMYND & BO BLIZ have no problem transitioning from the hip-hop and dancehall they grew up on into more eccentric tastes like fully-fleshed out Motown sets, classic House, aggressive Bmore Club Music/Philly Party Music sets, or even extensive Punk sets. Additionally, their own original tracks have become staples on the set lists and mixtape selections of some of the most respected and celebrated DJs on earth, gaining support from a motley collection of folks like Diplo, Sinden, Annie Mac, Nadastrom, DJ Fashen, Stretch Armstrong, Scottie B, K-Swift, DJ Eli, Tittsworth, The Jokers of The Scene, Cosmo Baker and the Rub DJs, the Top Billins DJs, and DJ Benzi amongst others.

EMYND has recently completed a Bmore Club song with Rocafella artist Young Chris from the Young Gunz and is working on a variety of remixes and projects as well as solo record while BO BLIZ is currently working on his own EP for UNRULY RECORDS.
