Reza is a composer and film producer raised in London and living in LA. Prior to working in film, he was a Universal Music songwriter and record producer/engineer with work spanning from pop (Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears) to underground (Freestylers, Ms Dynamite). He is a co-founder of UK indie label Illa State records, among the pioneers of UK urban music, meshing hip hop and electro, with MOBO award winning artist Akala.
Influenced by Beethoven and Nine Inch Nails in equal parts, Reza’s textured approach to composing fuses orchestra with contemporary music production and sound design. He is always fascinated by exploring soundscape as much as harmony and melding the two to serve the image in a tactile way. This sound can be heard in films like the “Filly Brown” blurring the lines between hip-hop and orchestra, and heist thriller "The Trust" starring Nicholas Cage and Elijah Wood and the recent Bruce Lee biopic "Birth of the Dragon". Reza is currently working on Dr Dre's "Vital Signs" which will be the first scripted show on Apple.
