Bio

If you’ve seen someone dance on television, you’re probably familiar with the work of District 78. This tight-knit production team has forged a symbiotic relationship with America’s best dancers and choreographers to re-imagine the way music and movement coincide.

In early 2005, independent hip hop writers/producers/artists Chris Lightbody and Spencer Yaras joined forces with actor/singer/songwriter Robert Steinmiller and started collaborating. Writing and recording in a humble home studio in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles, CA, they quickly named their new team “District 78” after the bumper sticker required for legal parking in the congested and overpopulated neighborhood.

From 2005 through today, making the move to more comfortable surroundings and with the addition of Korean-born singer/producer Jay Kim, this production team has flourished in
the industry to become the undisputed champs of dance television, from groundbreaking “Master Mixes” for MTV’s explosive top-rated show Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best
2 Dance Crew to stunning remixes and original material for FOX’s perennial Emmy-darling So You Think You Can Dance. Always eager to show their diversity, they have contributed placements to film and television projects from the Jon M. Chu mega-hit Step Up: 3D for Disney Pictures to the awe inspiring trailer for Universal’s Battleship. But it was their work with dancers, choreographers and visionary directors that led them to where they are today. Their newest LP release Thanks For The Falcon is the followup to their acclaimed Radios At Reception (which debuted at #6 on the iTunes Electronic Chart). It infuses traditional dance music with elements of hip hop, electro, dubstep, house, and even symphonic instruments to create an aggressive yet emotional soundscape. Additionally, their work with The Voice Season 2 finalist Cheesa on Falcon’s “1994” led them to recently collaborate again with her on a dark and dreamy reinterpretation of Britney Spears’ “Toxic”, which has remained strong on the iTunes electronic chart since its debut. Their singles “Demolition” and “Shake Move Wiggle” have also performed well, along with Falcon’s “Way Back Home” “Dubstep Breakdown”, and “Like A Criminal”.
