[Audio] Rayko edits The Strangers


the strangers

Spanish Disco don Rayko has already had a few outings this year via the likes of Nang and Chopshop, now he’s back on Ruben & Ra’s Retrospective label with a selection of edits on the Can’t Get Enough EP. Right here we’re premiering the Rayko Tigersoul Edit of Step Out Of Me Dreams, the EP’s dancefloor highlight, a radical reworking of The Strangers’ 1983 classic.

Taking the spaced out bridge from the synth Funk fuelled original and stretching it out for nearly six minutes, Rayko drops a pounding beat behind it, whipping up a storming dancefloor frenzy. Picking up on certain bits of the breaks bassline and rolling them into a proto-EBM Disco juggernaut. Probably the strongest track on the EP, this edit shows off Rayko at his best, deep in the mix with his sights aimed squarely at the dancefloor. It;s worth checking out the whole EP when it;s released for some choice battle weapons.

Rayko ‘Heads Together’ Edit


Ruben & Ra’s Retrospective imprint have another gem in the offering. Rayko, fresh from his ‘Broadway’ being hailed as 2011’s No. 1 Disco track on Juno, delivers his take on The O’Jays ‘Put Our Heads Together’.

As part of the sixth instalment of Retrospective’s Edit EP series and in pure Edit style Rayko takes all the lush synths and thick bass from The O’Jay’s original and turns things up to 11 for some massive ‘80’s synth Funk. The twanging lead line of the track is highlighted perfectly by Rayko and, if possible, he seems to bring the track even more of a groove.

Rayko – Heads Together (Rayko Vocal Edit)

‘Retrospective 6’ is released 27th February.
