RAFI is a self-taught instrumentalist who discovered production at 15 while attending Orange County School of the Arts (OSCA). There, he fell in love with the endless possibility of sound design without instrumental limitations.
Soon afterward, he attendedthe University of Southern California, (USC) studying business and music. While at USC, RAFI propelled himself to new heights, becoming a known resident DJ for major Los Angeles clubs and bringing house music to a hip-hop-preferred scene. After graduating, RAFI found himself in the midst of the COVID-19 lockdown. During this time, he was able to work long hours in the studio to perfect his sound and create a mix of stand-out tunes.
In December of 2021, RAFI debuted this sound with his first official track 'Luna' with W&O Street Tracks and since then has released on Gabe’s G- Spot Records and Lee Foss’ South of Saturn.
Moving forward, RAFI is looking to pave his own path in the industry. Be sure to listen to his most recent release ‘Pay’ on John Summit’s Off The Grid Records.
