Life and career[edit]

Guyon is a graduate of two French conservatories of music, and trained in both Classical and Jazz Piano. With a strong interest in Cuban music, he developed contacts with many prominent artists within the genre, eventually traveling to Cuba to work and perform with some of the top musicians of the day. He began his production career from his one-bedroom apartment in France, with a focus on R&B and Hip Hop music. Pascal developed a strategy to reach out to music industry professionals in the U.S., primarily through the use of Myspace, which allowed him to network with many working professionals in the business. Pascal took his first trip to Los Angeles in 2007 and collaborated with Grammy Award winning producer Walter Afanasieff and Hip Hop legend Heavy D.
