After a decade promoting and being resident at one of Leeds’ finest underground parties, Ray Mono is now stepping out of the shadows. With a growing arsenal of releases for labels like Moxy Music, PLEASURE ZONE and What Nxt?, Mono cues up a superbly strong release for Ben Rau’s on form META label.
Inspired by endless seasons in Ibiza, and the music emitting from the clubs like DC10 and Cocoon, Ray Mono is chiselling out a sound that’s uncomplicated and effective, and on the ‘Doin’ It Right’ EP, he delivers two sure fire winners.
The title track, ‘Doin’ It Right’, accommodates a low slung, swinging groove paired with a bouncing b- line, metallic chords, and a sweet vocal hook, it is simple house music done the right way! Similarly, ‘Breakage’ makes no bones about its influences; hypnotising beats and wandering bass cue up an accomplished and decedent floor filler, as dubby stabs and unobtrusive strings add to the breezy character of this stellar cut.
