His rise to notoriety came about in late 2003 when he launched his independent record label RTP or Random Trio Productions.

Jason Flynn is a Dubstep producer hailing from Croydon. He DJ's and produces under the alias Cyru.

His rise to notoriety came about in late 2003 when he launched his independent record label RTP or Random Trio Productions. The label provided Cyrus with a platform to push his deep, meditative take on bass music into the dark garage scene. His first full release on RTP was a collection of tunes titled Lost City EP. Prior to its release in 2004, Lost city was gaining popularity on the pirate radio circuit and club circuit with plays from top DJs including Kode9. Due to increased exposure for RTP, Cyrus was asked to fill a regular slot on the pirate radio station Rinse FM in 2004. During 2004 on Rinse FM, Cyrus was part of a group of DJs pushing the Dubstep sound making him a pioneer of the scene. The next big step up for Cyrus came about in 2005 when Rob Ellis (Pinch), head of Bristol based record label Tectonic recordings released Cyrus' Random Trio EP. By this time Cyrus has also collaborated on the creation of renowned dubstep website getdarker.

Cyrus' intricately percussive track, Indian Stomp featured on the soundtrack to the motion picture Children of Men alongside tracks from various other genres. Cyrus has had several write-ups in magazines such as: Rewind (RWD) and ATM.

In 2007, his debut LP From the Shadows was released on Tectonic to huge acclaim.

Cyrus, in a recent interview on Knowledgemag's website, claimed that Dubstep was losing some of its creative edge and his new label Origin Audio is aimed at bringing back the deep bass focused sound dubstep grew from, "We wanted to start a label that pushed, to us, what dubstep is all about. Sub driven music. We felt a lot of this has been lost over the last year or two and some great music has been overlooked in favour of the more tear-out side of the sound." « hide
