In a lucid representation of himself, Ray delivers an 11-piece bundle of soul lifting, mind and body empowering dance tracks under the core title, “Good Times”. Baring a positive outlook on life, Ray’s music reflects the very essence of his free-spirited personality. From Mannheim by way of Nigeria, he was fortunate to experience life through multi-cultural eyes. With a passion for music, Ray is notorious for incorporating many influential African grooves and hip-hop beats into modern German techno music, making him a major contributor in reviving Mannheim’s electronic music scene. Together with Johnny D and later Nick Curly, Ray put the infamous RAJO parties at The Loft on the map. Bouncing back and fourth from Mannheim to Berlin, Ray finally unpacked his suitcase in Berlin in 2009 – a difficult decision that has shown to be most rewarding in the past two years with four EP releases and four mixes. His recent appearance in Groove Magazine’s Top 50 Singles at 9th place for his remix of Kindimmer’s “Jack It” was just another confirmation of things moving forward. Over time spent in Mannheim, Miami and Berlin, Ray dedicated an entire summer to producing his debut album. Inspired by those close to him, the album started with the idea that friends visiting his home in Berlin, as well as friends abroad at the Miami Music Conference, would have a role in helping create the album by contributing vocals and other ideas to four of the tracks
