Dropping pins across the global map, Taiwan’s RayRay is always close to the most enviable sonic spots from Glastonbury to ADE’s finest, fueling a fierce open format style music spectrum from hip hop to EDM, Miami bass to tech house and trap and drum-step vibes. A true love story with the beats, RayRay took to a road in the sonic realm from the early days. Initially on the hip-hop tip she organically gravitated to the electronic cartel making her a diverse addition to the ever-evolving music industry. A justified winner of the Red Bull Thre3style competition and participant in the Red Bull Music Academy Montreal 2016 where she was accepted as one of 30 students of 3500 applicants received, RayRay has literally become the one to watch.
Behind the studio walls, RayRay holds true to her trap inspired production where 2016 sees the work in progress of her debut EP featuring the likes of Din Pei following her debut single ‘Closer’ with X&G and Josh Pan. In 2017, she released her first EP via HOTSLICE across all major digital platforms titled "Reincarnation EP" and set new records for sales, streams, downloads and tour stops. Her hit single "Marijade" reached number 3 on beatport charts. Sessions with Skrillex and fellow pioneering artists have set ablaze the next chapter in her musical story, injecting a savage signature sound into all she releases.
There is no doubting the presence RayRay holds behind the booth with a recent astounding guest feature at one of the world’s undoubted premier festivals Glastonbury, showcasing an epic sound spectrum to music enthusiasts.. Between the cities, her diehard assault on club floors has also been infectious from Singapore to Hong Kong. Dropping beats across her catalogue, RayRay brings forth her laser vision for the music taking her truly appetizing flare on the decks to SXSW, ADE, Midem France Music Festival, Glastonbury Festival, and Sonar Music Festival Barcelona from 2015 to 2017. RayRay has been invited to perform at Barong Family Label Night at ADE in Amsterdam 2017.
Embracing an experimental approach to music, RayRay has the gold in her hands, taking dance floors to other places with her alluring captivating delivery and giving them a solid education while she is at it.
LA-native and Tokyo-resident DJ/producer Tha Boogie Bandit regularly performs on the main floors of Japan’s biggest venues including ageHa, WOMB, Sound Museum Vision, and more. As head of bass music label Hotslice, Tha Boogie Bandit produces hybrid trap, future bass, and bass house.
2017 saw the biggest evolution in Tha Boogie Bandit’s sound, going from the big room style of his Beatport Electro House #16 track “OMFG” to the hybrid trap style of his track “Up In This B*tch” peaking at #17 on Beatport Trap chart. With over 2 million combined plays on just Soundcloud alone, his other notable releases include his original track Krazy, his bootleg remix of Skrillex & Rick Ross’s Purple Lamborghini, as well as releases on EDM.com’s AIA - Trap, Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch label and Deorro’s Panda Funk label. 2018 started with a bang, with a release on DJ Bl3nd’s label LokoSound and an official remix for Nervo and Wolfpack’s “Like Air” out on Armada. His music has been supported at Ultra Miami 2018 and in radio shows from Showtek, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Ephwurd, Dyro, Ummet Ozcan, MAKJ, Juicy M, Timmy Trumpet, Chuckie, Reece Low, Glowinthedark, DJ Bl3nd, and more.
He has shared the stage with some of the biggest names on the planet and his time spent in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Seoul being an international flavor to his performance. Combine that with over ten years of breakdancing, guitar, and drums and you’ve got a DJ with an unsurpassable rhythmical sense, eclectic taste, and knowledge of contemporary music history.
