Raf was raised in a passionately creative family and began his journey in production aged just nine. Industry tastemakers were immediately drawn to his fresh, enigmatic sound after he started dropping his beats on SoundCloud. Raf released an EP on Diplo’s iconic Mad Decent label back in 2012, describing it as “like cinematic dubstep horror scores for the year 2039".
However, it was singing to OddChild that ignited Raf’s full potential as a producer, heralding the start of a fruitful music career that has so far seen him collaborate with the likes of Avelino, Diplo, Naughty Boy, Dr Luke and Mike Skinner. In 2020 Raf released 'Raf Riley's Covid 19 Rescue Pack' followed by 'No Gentlemen' featuring Caitlyn Scarlett, with more music still to come. Listen to the latest from Raf Riley here.
