Bratloops

Well, it looks like we have our first winner in the “Beat & Bratwurst Contest”. This photo was submitted by Endai Hüdl, whom you might remember as the composer of the electro-dance-circus epic, “Ded Blokkz Mambo”. While the jury is still debating the authenticity of this image (those are some HUGE brats), I applaud the effort that went into its creation. That said, I’m happy to present Endai with three free months of member’s only access here at ryangruss.com.

Congrats Endai!
Congrats Endai!

Rabbit fur costume for the brain.

Today I bring you the latest track submitted from one of my readers. Recorded by Endai Hüdl in Berlin, Germany, the song is entitled “Ded Blokkz Mambo” and incorporates the Blakey-esque loop #79. Unfortunately, Endai didn’t include much of a backstory to the track. He did, however, provide a brief description:

“Rabbit fur costume for the brain. helps me concentrate…”

After listening to the track, I couldn’t have said it better myself.

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Gruss

Watch out Hasselhoff, I’m about to steal your turf! I’m happy to announce that ryangruss.com is featured on the cover of the February issue of Beat magazine (not to be confused with TigerBeat). The magazine is now available on newstands in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. And what is so cool about this magazine? It contains a DVD with over 1 GB of drum loops recorded by yours truly! All royalty free. I recommend that you hop in your Volkswagen, drive to your nearest magazine vendor and pick up a copy.

Since I’m several thousand miles away from the nearest physical copy of the magazine, I figured I’d hold a little contest to at least feel like I was there. Here are the details:

How To Play:

Take a photograph of yourself with a copy of the February issue of Beat.
In this photo, there MUST be bratwurst present.
There must also be sauerkraut along with the bratwurst. Either on the side or on the actual bratwurst itself. Your call.
Note – Photos without sauerkraut will immediately be disqualified.
