118 // Rayko

Almighty Rayko, the big boss of the prolific label Rare Wiri Records, brings a selection devoted to promoting the bright and colourful side of music! It's Disco time, baby!

Spanish producer extraordinaire Rayko has been a leading light in the disco scene since 2008, the year he launched his magnificent Rare Wiri imprint. Since then, his name has appeared on literally more than 50 great vinyl records scattered across labels like Eskimo, Is It Balearic? Whiskey Disco, Lumberjacks In Hell and Editorial.

Deeply rooted in the 70s and ’80s disco, funk, boogie and rock, Rayko’s influences are masterfully interpreted and transformed into modern-day dancefloor bombs. His mind-blowing edit of Candi Staton’s ‘Broadway’ came in at number 1 in Juno’s best of 2011 disco chart, and it’s still nowadays the Juno Download all-time bestseller (all genres), proving he’s right at the crest of the disco edit wave.

But his talents don’t stop there. He’s also delved into original productions, with his second studio album released in 2017 at Nang, one of the finest Nu Disco London-based labels, and remixes, being asked to lend his skilled hand to tracks by Psychemagik, Ajello, Inflagranti and DJ Rocca, to name a few…

As a DJ, he’s been shipped over to the USA, Africa, Asia, South and North America and all over Europe, and his global influence is quite obviously illustrated by his massive numbers on SoundCloud, with more than 35k followers and 5 million plays.

As the months go on and his catalogue expands, Rayko is rapidly becoming one of the most loved names in modern-day disco.

Follow Rayko, peeps!
