Aside from the DJ life, the hats of producer and sound engineer are also worn. While attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia (1994-1996) Cis co-founded seminal hip-hop group 'Name' with friends Ozzie Jones and Jared Taylor. The group released a series of cassettes, compact discs, and vinyl on all of which Cis has production credits. Also to his credit Cisum has worked with the likes of world famous artists such as King Britt, DJ Miz, James Poyser, Vikter Duplaix, Poor Righteous Teachers, The Mountain Brothers, Common, The Roots, Jill Scott, Schoolly D., Nou, and Grand Agent. Most of this due in part to an internship that turned into a full time position as recording and mix engineer at Third Story Recording Studio in Philadelphia (1996-1999). This is where Cis learned to shape sound through old school techniques.
The production work also extends into the theatre world where Cisum has sound engineered and designed with companies such as Rennie Harris Puremovement, Camden Repertory Works, Curtain Call Creations, The Arden Theatre Company, Lantern Theatre Company, and Theatre Horizon, and 5th Ave. Productions.
