About

Hello, i studied information systems at the university of cincinnati but im also producing music on the side. Im currently working on my first EP that will hopefully be out by the end of the year followed by a full length album early next year. My style could be described as soulful, funky, progressive, sample-infused glitch-hop/acid crunk and production has become my absolute passion for the past couple of years.
I am a bit of a music junkie both in finding music as well as going to shows. i was born and raised on classic rock then moved my way in to 60s/70s soul, funk, jazz, reggae, blues, etc. Then i discovered real hip-hop, hip-hop that was soulful intelligent and sampled from all the genres i grew up on just with more of a new-age danceable beat. being more focused on the production aspect of hip-hop i naturally became obsessed with artists like rjd2, dj shadow, cut chemist etc. I decided that if i were to make music i would want to combine all the genres i enjoy into progressive, mostly instrumental, and danceable grooves that were entertaining without an MC or lead singer. since then music production has become an obsession, with online tutorials, forums, and artist Q/As, the internet is my means of education in this field. Im extremely critical of my own work and wont put out a release until it is absolutely perfect in every way, probably the reason why i still dont have any releases yet haha. im pouring my heart and soul into this music and I cant wait to drop my first EP, i really fucking hope people will be able to see my passion for all of this.Pretty much all of my influences are the artists i follow so feel free to check out some of those artist's amazing music, you will not be disappointed. Thanks for checking out my page and be on the lookout for my first few releases coming early 2013.
Thanks for your time and remember to always seek truth and live free
-Ray
