Uni.Fi owner/producer The White Russian has released a new beat tape for people to check out.

His new project, "The Intergalactic Adventures of Horns, Drums and Samples: Episode 1" showcases a chunk of his earliest material.

The White Russian also promises to release other episodes to show his progress and growth as a producer/beat maker.

While I don't know when these beats were made, there are a bunch of beats on this free download that are pretty fresh and should've been rapped over by a talented emcee. Though they weren't, it's still nice to hear them in the form that they presently are.

Download it here and enjoy.
