Dirty Analogue with Ray Okpara

  • Thanks to everyone who came down to the last event. I think you'll all agree Federico Molinari nearly blew the roof off. This month we welcome from Manhiem, DJ and producer, Ray Okpara. Below is a bit about the man himself. Ray sees his musical roots in the underground Hip Hop of the west coast. That’s how he got to know his partner in crime for many a year, Johnny D. They were impressed by the different (electronic) music styles, which came along on their journeys in night life, the first UK Garage records of his co-inhabitant at that time got him to get interested in djing. The fascination and variety which House music gave led him to a style change early in his career. At first very vocal-loaded, as was the sound of “RAJO” events, which were organised by him, Johnny D and Nick Curly, which pulled on itself the enthusiasm of the local public; later he focused more on the deep, soulful but at the same time pushing beat. Following the Chicago-House legend Derrick Carter, the expression-strong DJ is considered as a further hopeful talent of the Mannheim club scene. Influenced by the electronic movement in Mannheim, he also brought the technoid side of House music into his sets without leaving his musical origin. Ray works alot with (some his own) Loops, Loopplayer and Samples. His sound is straight to the front. He himself says his stlye deep-bumpin, tech-house. On the 1st October 2004, Ray Okpara along with Nekes Danias, Johnny Debese and Federico Molinari decided to open the Zoo Club in the walls of the MS Connexion in Mannheim. This is where they stayed for one season. They had bookings like Steve Bug, Luciano, Cassy, Eloi Brunelle, Pheek, Amir Javasoul, Losoul, Sean Dimitrie, Gabriel Ananda, Losoul, etc. We are very priviliged to have Ray in Manchester as he has never played here before. He is also regarded as one of the best House producers around at the moment, with release after release being exeptional. The supporting acts will come from the DA residents and will be sure to provide you with some booty-shakin' beats.
