Riley Urick on SoundBetter

I've teamed up with Soundbetter to give you an opportunity to work with real professionals from the Music Industry. We won't charge normal industry rates but we will definitely give you the same industry standard quality every time. I've produced for Chris Brown (Second Hand Love) I've Assisted on Kanye debut album (College Drop Out) Lets callab!!!

I received an ASCAP award in 2014 for producing best new music in a TV Series (Real Husbands of Hollywood).
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.

    I love what Riley did with my song. I gave him a a song that was recorded with a band. It wasn't in time. He fixed all the timing of the tracks and delivered a really cool Tropical House remix. I love the new groove to the song, it is so danceable!
