Checking my inbox this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a dope new beat tape from Newton producer Teddy Ruck-Spin. And I must say, matched with two impressive guest appearances from Chase Murphy’s vocals and Richard Park’s production, it’s certainly something special. Although I may not have been hip to Ruck-Spin’s music until now, it goes without saying that this rising talent can certainly do some damage on the boards, and throughout the wide variety of sounds featured on The Alpine Collection, was able to prove his musical prowess in an infectious manner.
With that being said, the elements that attracted me most to Ruck-Spin’s production style were its personality and illustrative capabilities. Not only was the MA producer able to showcase a very specific charisma on this tape, but he was also able to paint a vivid picture of life in the alpines, hence the title. Doing so Ruck-Spin was able to catch our attention, and now that he’s on our radar, we will certainly be keeping an eye on the Newton native in the future. With that, The Alpine Collection is a very strong collection of intoxicating sounds from front to back, so be sure to show some love and give it a listen below.
