You all know that I love Roy Ayers over here at Flea Market Funk. I’ve used his music in mixes, live gigs, show flyers, and more. Roy Ayers is a legend in music. That is no question. I applaud a site like Roy Ayers Project, a site dedicated to preserving the art, history, and culture of this music, specifically the music of Roy Ayers. His music has inspired producers, artists, musicians, all who express themselves on analog tape, digital recording, canvas and the like. “The Roy Ayers Project is about sharing the essence and legacy of one of the greatest musicians ever to live.” Driven by the music and spirit of Roy Ayers, the site welcomes submissions of all music types, and celebrates this creative music community through the site and blog.

“The Roy Ayers Project is about sharing the essence and legacy of one of the greatest musicians ever to live.”

Here’s what the Roy Ayers Project has to say about Roy Ayers Project Beat Submission Compilation Vol. 1:

“For those of you who are familiar with royayersproject.com know about our beat submission posts, which feature producers who use Roy Ayers’ catalog to make original beats. Since our call for beats in the beginning of the year, the response has been staggering. We have received submissions from all parts of the globe, different styles, various skill levels, and multiple genres. We have been showcasing one (and only one) producer every Monday of each week since the first week of April, and we have had a great response from our site visitors, as well as other blogs that support our submissions by reposting (shout out to producersiknow.com!). Fast forward four months later, we now present you with the first volume of our Beat Submission Compilation for free download.
Each producer that has sent us a submission understands the greatness of Roy Ayers, and these producers featured on the first volume of the compilation displayed a sound and essence that was superb. This compilation features the one instrumental that was highlighted on the blog, as well as instrumentals that were sent along with their original submissions that weren’t featured.
We would like to take this time to thank each and every producer/musician that as contributed to the Roy Ayers Project, and we encourage you to keep submitting! We will continue to highlight the best of the best, as well as those who exemplify the Roy Ayers Project in the best light.”
