Richard Glenmor Beynon, professionally known by his stage name BYNON,[1] is a British-Canadian music producer and DJ.

Early life[edit]

The clarinet prodigy turned DJ/Producer/Songwriter comes from a family of musicians hailing from South Wales (U.K.). He grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia. He studied at Langley Fine Arts School, Juilliard School ,and McGill University.

He was inspired to play guitar, bass, keyboards, piano and drums before becoming a clarinet player. He performed with the Surrey Youth Orchestra, the Vancouver Summer Pops Youth Orchestra and won gold at the Kiwanis International Fraser Valley Music Festival.

Collaborating with his father, BYNON arranged and produced three successful albums featuring many genres of music including classical, jazz and pop.[1]


A seasoned performer, BYNON toured around North America, with multiple dates in Europe and Asia. Highlights include Paradiso Festival at the Gorge in Seattle, a four year residency in the Las Vegas circuit featuring Legendary Pool Party REHAB and SLS, and most recently in 2018 at îleSoniq Festival, in his adopted home town of Montreal.

With his freshman releases alongside Dannic, Project 46 & Feenixpawl, his name popped up monthly on Beatport top 10 charts, (Golden Hearts, Eyes, Home) on Revealed, Ultra Records and Atlantic throughout 2014.

At the end of 2015 BYNON's massive rework Ganja Man featuring Sean Paul went viral on Youtube, accumulating over 23 Million Views.
