ORDER & PREVIEW: ... rval-beats

This is the fourth FatGyver release so far. All these works are my testament to what hip hop is to me. It all leans towards nineties US east coast vibes, but I'm adding my own spice to it. I guess you don't hear hip hop out of Finland every day! I've always loved sample-based music, and to me, hip hop has always been about working with samples. And samplers. On this album, you'll hear the SP 1200, MPC 60, as well as various other devices.

This is a beat tape (or a record!) that I'm very proud of and think it does make its own small statement in today's hip hop world.

Everyone who orders the record will also get a link to a digital download on Jan 12, which is when this preorder campaign will end.

PS: Album opening track in my signature.

UPDATE about the forthcoming album. We have 109 orders in, and one month left.
Diggers Factory has promised that if we can hit 200 orders, we can do RED VINYL for the same price.
So if you want to support my hip hop ventures and haven't ordered a copy yet, consider doing so while you can, and maybe tell a friend.
Ordering ends on Jan 12, so act while you can.
Order at ... rval-beats
I'll be doing another hip hop album in Q3-ish 2018, too, so let's make this work well to pave way for that one, too.

I already did my latest DNB album 2x12" with them…came out really good in all respects.
Everybody loved it. ... nufatgyver

They said if we can hit 200 with this one, they can do a color vinyl for the same price.
