Some of the Artists that Raz has worked with in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Work with Raz in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Raz has worked with many artists in a large variety of genres in his Los Angeles based Recording Studio. Read some his many 5 star reviews on Yelp to get a feel for how people enjoy working with him.
I've worked with Raz in one session and released a single with him.
I knew pretty much immediate I would hire him to produce and write a record with.
Not only is he extremely talented and intuitive with his skills, but he is able to push back and challenge me on lyrical and melodic ideas in a way that is not intimidating, but in a way that inflicts growth. I can not wait to continue our sessions and see where this journey takes both of us. Raz is a great guy!
I have recently been working with Raz on a song he produced, and I am blown away by his talent and professionalism. He is honest, to the point, and doesn't cut corners. He is very meticulous in what he does, and is incredibly creative. Can't wait for my next session with him!
Raz is by far one of the most honest and genuine individuals I've ever met in the music biz(which never happens in this industry). Having worked with multiple producers from big names to no names, he is my go to guy. He tells you how it is and gets the job done. He will always offer you his opinion but will never force you to go with it. You will never get a quality producer like him for an insanely reasonable price.
I had an amazing experience working with Raz. We finished a song per session, and the songs I've done with him are some the best work I've done. He really knows what to do with vocals, and is incredibly fast. He created a bridge from scratch in the time it took me to write the lyrics!! I highly recommend working with Raz. Great musician, engineer, and awesome guy. Thanks, Raz!!
Sent Raz some of my latest songs I've been working on with another producer , Raz recorded some guitars and sent us some amazing production ideas - some cool synths lines and pads that totally changed the song vibe (for the better). It was actually really really cool and it blew my mind because of the creativity.
His ideas and recording actually made my day (and my tracks) improved it QUITE a bit.
After recording we sent Raz the final vocals for "improvements', and again we got a neutral result that totally blew us away, you can barely hear the corrections, but you could definitly hear that the vocals were on point. I would definitely go back to Raz if I ever need someone to review my music and even some advice on how to make my music and such better. The quality of my music really improved quite a lot and it just simply sounds better all round. I learned a few tips and tricks by listening to the songs myself. One of my greatest experiences I've ever had!
Got Raz's phone number from a friend, after I heard some work she'd done with him that I really liked. I brought one of my songs to him, which I felt was pretty good, but with his creative ingenuity, it really took what I had to the next level. It's pretty impressive what can be done with the right production and sound. My music style is Pop, and I was looking to create some beats that were really catchy, he changed some of the hooks and structure, added some modern electronics--Voila! A song you just want to keep on repeat!
Thank you for using your talents!
