THIS IS WHO I AM
My name is Rodrigo Rubio, although many people know me as Layer.
I'm a spanish Hip-Hop producer and composer, graduate in "Audio Engineering and production" from the School of Audio Engineering (SAE)
and finishing my bachelor in "Contemporary Music Composition" at Transforming Arts Institute in Madrid.
I also studied music for over fourteen years, and took courses on Piano, Sax and Composition in the Creative Music School of Madrid.
As a producer I’ve achieved awards as:
- Best beat “Jee Juh Contest”,
- “Ammunition Beats by Production Hip Hop”,
- “Best Spanish Beat 2014 by Funkmamma”,
- “Extremadura Suena”
- “Best Song by Melradio”
My first work as a producer, "Vive y Siente", surpassed half million downloads and 500.000 views on YouTube, becoming the most voted album in HHdirecto, the biggest spanish-speaking rap website on the Internet.
Since then, I have been working hard and publishing new projects.
I’ve worked with companies such as Sony Music, Warner Music or BOA Music but I've worked with more than 300 independent artists.
At the same time, I have travelled across four continents, learning about other styles and musical traditions, and I have composed soundtracks for short-films, documentaries, theatre (in Czech Republic and Spain) and international companies such as Univision (Latin America).
I believe Rap culture doesn't care about nations or borders.
Thus, I would be glad to hear you rapping on my beats!!
