Hailing from Ontario, California, Steve "Swiff D" Thornton is a world renown producer and the musical mastermind behind Pac Div. He's widely known for his energetic "neck breaking" beats that wowed audiences at the 2007 Red Bull's Big Tune contest. Placing as a finalists in the competition enabled him to develop a worldwide fan-base and he eventually began to work with highly revered artists such as Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Bobby V, Anthony Hamilton, David Banner, Jadakiss, Dipset, and he is currently producing for many more.

As the son of a Pastor, he was raised in the Christian church, which is where he began to develop his talents as a drummer and explore his interest in music. However, because he was unable to afford the expensive music production hardware, he turned to Fruity Loops 3 and personally challenged himself to create a top notch sound without top notch equipment. His work ethic and dedication eventually drew the attention of several of his favorite major artists. The name "Swiff D" started off as an alias/alter-ego created by his best friend in college; unbeknownst to him, it would eventually become a name specifically known for his musical talents. After years of determination and dedication to his craft, he is finally starting to receive the recognition that he deserves.
