More about The Rezza Brothers
There just isn’t enough time in the day for the Rezza Brothers to talk, make and listen to music. They can’t help it, music makes them tick. It is the epitome of their identities and has been for the last fifteen years as artists and now as songwriters/producers. Two Italian brothers from Woodbridge, Canada, they’ve burst on the scene in the last three years as eclectic production chameleons crafting big sounds for the likes of Obie Trice, Bone Crusher, Krazy Bone, Divine Brown, DMC, Maestro Fresh Wes and Reema Major. Outside of hip hop, they’ve worked with the legendary Commodores and even scored short films. Their production is fiercely loyal to the sounds of their youth, yet possesses ambitious new schoolism. With influences as diverse as Jazz, Soul, Opera and Blues, they are truly sonic journeymen whose creativity often start in one genre and morphs into another by the end of the record.
Their aura falls somewhere between Beat Street and The Blues Brothers. While their ears are undeniably worldly and eclectic, they’ve never shaken hip hop’s strong influence on their lives growing up. Adrian and Lucas still talk about their trips back from Miami with suitcases full of cassette tapes in grade school. As teens in a predominantly Italian neighborhood just north of Toronto, they were often out casted for their taste in music. But in their teens, spitting in the face of conformity, they formed a duo and started writing songs, both rapping and singing.
With such an accomplished list of collaborations and a seemingly limitless range of production potential, the Rezza Brothers are inches away from becoming a fixture in popular music.
We can make music for every generation,” declares Adrian. “We’re less worried about following what everyone else is doing. Of course you listen and pick up on new ideas, but we want to go in our own lane. That’s why one day we’re working on a film score and the next Bone Crusher is rapping on our beats. There is no path. We are the path.”
