Cheda Ray is an Electronic producer from Berlin living in London. Now you expect a raving biography about him; then here you go:
The 1980’s were the most influential period in his life when his father recorded the newest hits from Saturdays 80’s chart radio shows. Pieces of magnetic tape from the old tape machines lied everywhere around only to get glued together after cutting all the Radio DJ’s voice-overs.
From there music crept into his life beat by beat. During school days he deejayed at Student Discos and later in the 90’s he got the first Resident Gigs in the legendary night club ‘Miami’ in Germany. On each Sunday there were more than 2000 dancing Ravers and Clubbers making the ‘Afterhour’ one of the best shows of this kind in the whole country.
Progressive House, Techno or House did establish permanently in his sets and brought him reputation from the East of Berlin to the north of Hamburg. Since then electronic music has changed dramatically but the fundamental repertoire never left his record cases. And yet today he is searching for the special track whether bought or produced to make the crowd go through the roof!
On the production side he is a big fan of Steinberg’s Cubase which he uses since he moved his studio to London in 2012. The growing Techno and Minimal scene of Berlin separated him from the cities spirit when he was looking for a more global connection for his own musical expression in Progressive House music.
Others genres he is interested in:
- Tech House, Techno
- House, Indie
