Thunderheist is an electronic music duo from Toronto and Montreal, Canada. Thunderheist is made up of producer Graham Bertie (Grahmzilla) and Omolola Isis Salam (Isis).[1] The two began collaborating before they had ever met in person, sending MP3 files to each other over the Internet.[2] They are signed and released one album on Big Dada. Thunderheist was founded in 2005 by Graham as an anonymous dance music side-project to his more hip-hop leanings as Metrix. They became a duo in August 2006 when Graham inadvertently sent Omolola a remix he was working on for a Spank Rock remix competition and she recorded a rap over it.[3] They've received moderate popularity for their track "Jerk It" featured in the 2008 film The Wrestler. Thunderheist was selected as the X3 Artist of the month by, CBC Radio 3 and Exclaim! Magazine for April 2009.[4] Their self-titled full-length was released March 31, 2009. They were nominated for a 2010 Juno Award in the Dance Recording of the Year category.[5]

Thunderheist confirmed on their website they have gone their separate ways.[6]
