His extensive catalog boasts of eight studio albums, big remixes, his largely successful radio show Dreadcast, and numerous tours and shows across the globe. Ray began as a DJ during the UK’s rave scene days in the early 90s, and 23 years later, he is still one of the UK’s most celebrated drum & bass DJs and producers. Among over 100 remixes he’s done over the years, he is known for some popular ones like Moby’s ‘Yes Yes,’ and Congo Natty’s ‘Police in Helicopter.’
