In 2009 Fossil Studios was born, transforming a warehouse in lower Clapton into a state of the art recording studio and living space. Fossil Studios is a creative oasis in the Heart of Hackney, East London where creativity has no limitations and inspiration is served in a tea cup.
Founder/producer/composer Raz Olsher has since worked with an array of artists, including Gilles Peterson, Lemar, Nathaniel Rateliff, Krust, MJ Cole, Basement Jaxx and Sam Lee, for his 2012 Barclaycard Mercury Prize nominated album ‘A Ground of its Own.’ Raz has also worked with Ebe Oke (for the album ‘Valor 2011’ – one of Brian Eno’s Top 10 albums that year), South Africa’s Thandiswa Mazwai (2010 World Cup Opening Ceremony) and in 2012 co-wrote and produced a UK Charts number 1 hit record 'Bom Bom' by Sam & The Womp, now exceeding over 1.5 million sales worldwide.
Recently Raz has been producing and writing with Shannon Saunders, Tara McDonald, Ayanna Witter- Johnson, Lady Chann, Thabo (Thabo & The Real Deal), Rubato, a three-piece experimental group, Bassically, a live house music collective and disco-funk alias, Bubblegum.
Alongside music production, Raz has written for feature lengths and documentaries, including ‘The Last Ten’ (2011), ‘The Ninth Cloud’ (2014) set and filmed in East London and starring French actor Jean Hugh Anglade (Killing Joe/ Nikita) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs/ Kill Bill) & 'Not Ever' starring Emilia Fox (The Pianist) featuring original music from Roger O'Donnell (The Cure).
