Ribon

Endless Looper cover art

I love me some instrumental hip-hop and this is the tits!

In his own words...

"Endless Looper" is the sixth solo album of Ribon, mcee and beatmaker based in Barcelona. The difference between this and his previous albums is the fact that this one is focused exclusively on his role as producer, presenting an instrumental LP based on the sampling culture, paying tribute to Hip Hop and its elements across different sound textures."

Have a taste.







HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
