Ryan Skyy is an American music producer, DJ and songwriter with five No. 1 Billboard-charting remixes, a Top 40 Billboard-charting single, and a #9 iTunes US Top 40 Dance single.[6]

Billboard Magazine recognized Skyy's remix of Adele's Hello as having helped the "monster smash[...]conquer clubs" and reach the No. 1 spot on the Dance Club Songs Chart.[7] Skyy is also a Billboard-reporting DJ for the Dance Club Songs chart[5] as well as a remixer for major artists and labels including Ariana Grande, Janet Jackson and Lady Gaga.[8]

On March 15, 2018 Shangela released the single "Pay Me (feat. Ryan Skyy)", which Ryan co-wrote and produced. Within 24 hours the single reached #9 on the iTunes US Top 40 Dance chart and was charting in 15 other countries, including Australia where it entered the chart at #16.

Skyy's debut single "DONE" peaked at #41 on Billboard's "Dance Club Songs" chart,[9] broke 100,000 views on YouTube,[10] and was named the dance track of the summer by OUT Magazine.[5] Skyy was the subject of an extended interview in the Huffington Post in March 2015[1] as well as CBS's "Mancave Daily" in April 2015.[11]

From 2015 to 2017, Skyy has produced music for fashion designer Marco Marco's New York Fashion Week[12] and Los Angeles Fashion Week[13] runway shows, which altogether have received over 4 million views.[14][15] The success of Skyy's fashion week score inspired him to release one of the songs, "It Do Take Nerve", as his follow-up single to "DONE".[16] The music video for "It Do Take Nerve" broke 100,000 views on YouTube,[17] marking the second time in a row Skyy accomplished this feat.

In November 2015, Skyy teamed up with Taryn Manning to release a remix of Lady Gaga's Grammy-nominated Til It Happens to You.[2]

Skyy's music has been featured on MTV.com and LOGO TV,[3] and has played in several national retail outlets including Planet Fitness, Gold's Gym, NYSC, and 24 Hour Fitness[8]
