Multi-Platinum and Billboard #1 selling producer Olivier Bassil started 2021 strong as he produced Kevin Gates’ lead single “Puerto Rico Luv” from the hip hop legend’s Billboard top 20 charting mixtape “Only The Generals Part II,” all the while producing part of a Republic Records debut for Clever, with whom he started working early on. This past March, he also received his second Platinum RIAA certified plaque for his work on Rod Wave’s “Pray 4 Love” album.
Further to his dedication to finding great new artists, Olivier got his first break as a producer when his creative and catchy guitar melodies started being featured on iconic tracks such as “Situation” by Don Toliver, “Ranada” by NBA YoungBoy and “The Cry” by Tory Lanez. In 2019, Olivier received his first Platinum RIAA certified plaque for his work on NBA YoungBoy’s album “AI YoungBoy 2” and his first Gold RIAA certified plaque for the song “Ranada” from that album. Furthermore, that year marked his first chart topping releases as “AI YoungBoy 2” went to number one in the Billboard 200 chart and Tory Lanez’s legendary “Chixtape 5” went to number one in the Top R&B Album chart.
In 2020, Olivier received another Gold RIAA certified plaque for his work on the “Pray 4 Love” album by gospel-trap artist Rod Wave, on which he produced the song “5% Tints.” The album also reached number one on the Billboard Top Rap Album chart. Drawing from his virtuosity across guitar, piano, violin and full orchestral arrangement, there isn’t the shadow of a doubt that Olivier is only getting started creating hits for established artists and creating fresh sounds for groundbreaking newcomers such as Clever and vocal powerhouse BELARO. His long list of productions also includes releases with NLE Choppa, Yungeen Ace, Yung Pinch, NoCap, Skooly, Quando Rondo, Yung Bleu, LouGotCash, Ace Hood, HoodRich Pablo Juan, Rory Fresco and many more.
Currently providing music for every major record label, Olivier has successfully established his own LA-based production company and label, Eyelektric. Being a French immigrant in the U.S. with a half Lebanese heritage, this brings a heavy imprint of global cultures to his palette. He developed his musical skills through a path at the French conservatory and at Berklee College of Music. As he started out in L.A., he learned to appreciate the power of classic production and arrangements under the wing of 16-time Grammy winner David Foster. Throughout the past few years, Olivier successfully established his own name as a producer; and by using his never ending quest for originality, he confirms time and again through his work ethics that “when creating a unique angle with an artist, there are no boundaries and the sky is the limit!”
