The Music Producer
ChuckRuh Productions is a One Man Show. The man behind it is,… well… call him ChuckRuh. 😉
A music producer from Istanbul/ Turkey with an Hip Hop Background, who wrote (lyrics), produced and performed rap songs in the early 90´s. ChuckRuh´s music journey began in 1993 with a borrowed Yamaha keyboard, a double tape deck music blaster and cheap headphones used as a microphone. Never learned to play an instrument, but the urge to make Hip Hop inspired him to record what was played on the keyboard. A complex recording technique, self written rap lyrics and rapping the lyrics into the headphones led to the first songs that convinced a friend to buy an Atari computer and a synthesizer, to make music together. A “music producer” and a group was born. A few gigs, inner conflicts and years later, he decided to stop producing Hip Hop Tracks. He also stopped making music for many years.
As he got older he changed his focus more on electronic music in different genres (Downtempo, Chillout, Deep House mainly), allthough he doesn´t like genres, when it comes to making music.
For his first Album “Leaving Earth With…” he hasn´t listened to music for over two years so as not to be influenced. Not very typical for a music producer, but… it was an Experiment…
