Help make the Opus of a debut into a Reality for Hip Hop Producer/Geek Yoku Masaki!
Raijphinai Harris, a.k.a. Yoku Masaki has for years worked and trained in music Production for himself and others, and learned the history of music as well as art, while some artists have briefly fused music with art in concept albums, Yoku believes art can have more of a voice if given the chance, but in a world where the music industry gives you restrictions, his visions will most likely be barred from labels unless given him the opportunity to work on his own terms.
" i feel like if i was given 100% creativity with no restrictions, i could make the creativity of a album i wanted for years."
While he has released two other vocal projects, "the world according to" and "VampireLife", these do not compare to the creativity and worldwide spreading of message in his project, "The R.A.V.E.". an album which he considers," his True Debut and his Most Creative Project ever conceived." the album, which tells the conceptional story of a intergalactic traveler who comes to earth and learns of the way music industries have shut down the artist's ability to express him/herself and their creative freedom. the album which the production is all done by Yoku Himself, shows more of Yoku's productiveness as a compilation more than a vocal album.
While Yoku has released several albums and beat-tapes for the past three years, Yoku believes "The R.A.V.E." is a project that has gone thru developmental hell for eight years, due to no one able to help with funding and assistance. some wondered, Why not try to sign to a label to get the album released? "i feel this album will be stripped of it's originality, that i am afraid to let someone touch this album concept. therefore i feel like i should let the people who love the album idea should make the impact on whether or not it should be released."
With help from fans and supporters, the album will get to achieve the monumental release and support it deserves. hopefully many things will follow within the album, such as music videos, art designs, comic book, and even a short film. but for now Yoku Feels the album's blossoming is his first priority, but certainly wont be the last.
