I believe every five years of ones life changes drastically in some way. This is the beginning of my fifth.
"Enter Ru AREYOU—the L.A-based scientist of sound just released a beat compilation titled fifth on his 21st birthday. Although we should be wishing him a happy born day, the gift is on him, for us.
Fifth is a beautiful project— and I say beautiful because one can practically see the audio as it plays. This beat tape presents an opportunity to hear what drum machines and keyboards would sound like if they could speak to us; and with Ru AREYOU's meticulous sequencing and care for detail, the machines never say the same thing twice. Fifth is an even better listen when you keep in mind that Ru AREYOU, at 21, already has eight years of beat construction experience in his fingertips." - Sev (RoyAyersProject.com
