rayflash (formerly known as drinking beer cat!) comes all the way from japan and is equipped with his very own trademark style of driving drums, playful distorted synth stabs, lovely chords and some of the best vocoder work i've heard in a long time. i had rayflash on my list for quite a while now (sorry again, ray) and always wanted to wait for the perfect moment to give him maximum exposure on discodust and even though my inbox is currently stuffed with tracks, i just don't want to wait any longer now.
'flash dancer' has got everything to become a huge anthem, it's acid-style bassline showing rayflash's love for old school rave music while the song as a whole kind of reminds me of 'discovery' era daft punk, maybe mainly because the whole song makes me see bright colors and flashing lights as in interstella 5555 - then again the bassline distortion sounds more like 'human after all', so let's just say that rayflash provided the missing link right here. whatever, no more talk needed, this will tear up any dancefloor, so drag and drop this right into your setlists:
rayflash - flash dancer
additionally rayflash hooked me up with a great dj mix featuring a couple of unreleased tracks straight out of his studio, tracklist is in the comments:
rayflash - dj mix 01 (on mediafire)
rayflash - dj mix 01 (on megaupload)
rayflash is looking for a label and remix offers, so feel free to hit him up while you're showing him some love on his myspace. i will keep you posted as japan keeps rising!
UPDATE: rayflash just sent me a slightly remastered version of 'flash dancer', the file has been replaced.
