Hi I'm Riley and I specialize in Producing, Mastering and Mixing (Kanye West, Chris Brown, Akon). I received an ASCAP award in 2014 for best new music in a TV Series (Real Husbands of Hollywood). Being a producer helps me be more creative in my Mixing and go the extra mile because I take pride in making your music Sound Better.

While assisting Legendary Mastering Engineers Eddy Schreyer & Gene Grimaldi I worked on many projects over the course of 11 years at Oasis Mastering. Some of the albums I'm proud to say I assisted on include:
>Kayne West Debut album "College Dropout"
>Lady Gaga "The Fame"
>Christina Aguilera "Self Titled" Debut Album
>System of a Down "Toxicity"
>Vanessa Carlton "Be Not Nobody"
>Akon "Trouble" and "Konvicted" plus many more between 1998 and 2010.

Meanwhile I was signed to an Independent Label Under Atlantic Records as a Producer for a few years where I was put in the studio hands on with artists like Usher, Brandy, Tyga, Ammerie, Ashanti, Melissa Ethridge, Chris Brown and J Lo. At the moment I am releasing music independently through Syft Music under producer alias Bodo where I specialize in Future Bass, Trap and Urban Pop. Its important to stay connected to a young fan base to keep up with the current technology that can make your music sound better.

I have my own studio in North Hollywood with gated parking that is avail for sessions.

    Riley took my mix to the next level!!

    After hearing just the first mix, 2 labels immediately offered me record deals.
