His talent motivated Motown Records into signing him as an artist, producer and writer, where he produced and arranged albums for Junior Walker, Thelma Huston and other Motown legends. His unique writing style also caught the ear of motion picture directors such as Tony Scott, who signed him to score "The Hunger," and Michael Mann, who asked Rubini to score two films for him, "Manhunter" and "Band of The Hand."
