Taiwanese trap, bass, and hip-hop DJ and producer RayRay is an artist certain to be aware about. Recently dropping her sophomore EP entitled ‘Alien Invasion’ on powerhouse imprint Barong Family and officially signed with Yellow Claw and their Barong Family label making her Asia’s biggest and loudest EDM sensation.
“Besides RayRay’s character and positivity; she stood out because she is an amazing DJ and tastemaker. Having her and her energy amongst us and the other artist on the label is amazing.” - Yellow Claw
The sophomore EP ‘Alien Invasion’ sees RayRay move from presenting herself to the world for the first time to an artist adamant on carving out a finely tuned style and sound that is uniquely her own. This time around, she adds to her trap persona with an EP that dabbles in dubstep, hard house, and hardstyle, as well as lending her vocals to every track on the EP to show the true extent of her range.
The first track of the EP is ‘Outer Space’ with RayRay rapping “one for the treble, two for the bass, and three for the alien in the outer fucking space” on regular rotation. Continuing the EP with ‘Drumstick’ featuring label mate Juyen Sebulba delivering a tune with hard house undertones coming in at 150bpm that saw the pair experiment with new elements. Branching out to weave elements of Jersey Club into her own productions with ‘Back n Forth’. Yellow Claw’s favorite track, “We love the vocals on Back n Forth. RayRay evolved over the last year in such a dope vocalist with her own style and casual attitude. And the drop just bangsssss.” The fourth track of the EP is ‘Samurai’ that echoes the cyberpunk vibes with a powerful bass-line. The final track is ‘Like This’ featuring LA artist Lil Debbie and heavy-hitting Dutch producer Gianni Marino, loaded with an impossibly catchy drop and synth vocals over 150bpm trap music.
Having recently played a string of iconic events around the world like Tomorrowland, SXSW, ADE, Glastonbury, and Sonar in Barcelona, as well as being the first female to take home the top prize at the Red Bull Thre3style competition. RayRay looks to establish herself further west this year and can be expected to tour the United States in the not-so-distant-future. The fast-rising future star also has music coming out this year with Yellow Claw, work with Spinnin’ Records and Protocol Recordings, with releases on Tiësto’s label Musical Freedom to follow.
