GRAMMY-winning producer and one third of electronic trio NERO, Joseph Ray, announces his new single ‘Blue Nights’.
With an evolving lead and a rolling bassline on ‘Blue Nights’, Joseph Ray showcases his expansive production style that has earned him support from DJ Koze, Solomun, Pete Tong, Hunee and more. Joseph first debuted the track at Anjunadeep Open Air Los Angeles (ABGT500) to a sold-out crowd of over 12,000 fans, where it received a great reception.
The artwork for the single borrows from the iconic ‘90s UK nightlife photography of Dave Swindells and hints at the influence behind Joseph Ray’s latest release: the pulsating energy of UK house and jungle music.
“I remember seeing Dave's Ibiza '89 book a while back and loving the imagery. Anjuna had been in touch with him more recently, and it was great to find out he'd be open to providing some of his photography as artwork for the EP. The images of people lost in the music, vintage and euphoric seemed to fit the music perfectly.” - Joseph Ray
Ray’s latest single follows the release of ‘Cos of You’ and ‘Give Me A Reason’, which have amassed over 300,000 streams and plays on KissFM, KCRW and Slam!FM. This is in addition to Joseph’s 2021 collaborative album ‘Leave the Bones’, written and recorded with Haitian band Lakou Mizik. The album has been celebrated by the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Worldwide FM, Billboard and The Times and showcased just how versatile Joseph is to an international audience.
