Razdaz Recordz was founded in New York City during 2002 by internationally acclaimed bassist, singer and composer Avishai Cohen, with his manager Ray Jefford.
Razdaz has proudly established itself as a key independent record label, bringing young artistic talent to the forefront of the music industry with the enthusiastic help of its close global partners.
With Razdaz Recordz, Avishai created an opportunity to record and produce young talented musicians whom he has enthusiasm for. His vision behind the label was to give himself an outlet to creatively express the diversity of his own musical journey, eclecticism and artistic passion.
“I’ve always been interested in several genres of music, including jazz, rock, pop, Latin and funk. I’m always packed with ideas. I decided to start my own label because I’m involved in so many different projects.”
Avishai Cohen, 2003.
The label has produced 18 album releases over the past 20 years: Eight albums by Avishai Cohen, and the others by exceptional talents that he has either performed with or discovered throughout his ongoing musical exploration.
Razdaz Recordz produces and presents an eclectic mix of genres, ranging from Middle-Eastern vibes to wild techno beats, from jazz rhythms to soulful vocal albums, always asking into account the artists’ own personal ambitions and their own definitive message.
