Read on for more information (via Facebook and YouTube) about Collaboration's the Key, which is now available for pre-order via Fifth Element or can be purchased at Soundset.
Last Of The Record Buyers is a producer based event created by Kevin Beacham (Fifth Element/Rhymesayers) and Brandon Allday (Big Quarters). After 5 years of hosting a series of production events at various locations including Scribble Jam, Soundset, Dinkytowner, Institute Of Production & Recording, and Fifth Element, they are now excited to announce their first compilation, Collaboration's the Key. Kevin and Brandon reached out to a wide range of Producers, MCs, and DJs to come out with 21 unique collaborations.
