Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, Pyro started making music at the age of 14. Although fascinated by all electronic genres, he quickly settled on drum and bass when it first appeared commercially in 1995.

He then spent the next few years exploring this sonic domain, seeking the darker/techier forms of the sound. In 2000, Pyro and Paul Reset were signed to Trouble On Vinyl, under the Semantix moniker. This made Pyro the first Danish producer to release drum and bass Internationally.

A DJ career also began to flourish at this time, resulting in Pyro playing the prestigious Roskilde Festival two years in a row. Solo signings quickly followed to labels such as Outbreak and Perspective; with 'Falling' (feat. male singer Shiraz) going straight to #3 on BBC Radio 1's 5 Mighty Rollers chart.

Searching for a corner of the scene they could call their own, Pyro & Paul Reset started Nerve Recordings in 2001. Since then, the label has helped propel talents such as Gridlok, Noisia, and SKC into the limelight.

Over 20+ releases later (on labels such as Nerve, Industry, Habit, Leet, Deeper Realms, Shadybrain and others), Pyro has developed a very distinct techno-influenced sound of his own, and has ventured to both mellow and hard territory. Committed to spreading the deeper tech sound, he's performed all over the US and Europe (including Estonia, Hungary, Russia, Austria, Norway, Sweden, and Holland), and has held several residencies in his hometown (Jungle Fever, Dynamics, and DNB Zone).
