Bio & references:

One of Germany's most elite producers, Czientist has been an in-house producer for Mightier Than Then Sword Records since 2011, however his work with the label started four years earlier when Czientist and label founder, Ty Bru reunited online during the myspace craze of that time.

Since then Czientst has been one of Bru's main producers, helping set the tone for the 2009 release, "Heart Core Hip Hop." Mostly known for his incredibly soulful and smooth production patterns, Czientist has also worked with some high powered emcees since he used Myspace as an excellent form of global networking.

Linking up with nothing less than powerhouse artists such as, Apex, Beedie, Ty Bru, Jon Quest, DJ Drastik, Varsity Squad, Ed E Ruger, Medic, Seven Da Pantha, Apostle A.P., William Zaybiane and most recently Crystal Seth with Bubba Sparxxx, Czientst has proven that his eclectic influences from JDilla, 9th Wonder, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, Madlib, Statik Selektah, Timbaland & Kanye West has enabled himself to be considered on the same playing field as these legends.

Czientist's production has been featured on several albums and mixtapes including, Beedie & DJ Mynd Tek
"Walking On A Dream," Coast to Coast Vol. 71 Hosted by Jadakiss & Coast to Coast Mixtapes & DJ RPM Presents: The Indie Top 50.

Using his production, The Ty Bru single featuring William Zaybiane, "T.K.O." was distributed through Island Def Jam, while Czientist's work in 2008 with Apex, "Face The Musik" was nominated best album of the year at the '08 Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards.

Producing his first beat in 1999, 14 years later, Czientist is showing no signs of slowing down. With more projects in the works with Ty Bru, Apex, Crystal Seth, Worth Whyle and artists on Mightier Than The Sword Records, Czientist looks to continue down the same pathway of success that he has been walking down for the past six years.
