DJ RAYSOO at the Cairo Jazz Club

RaySoo is one of Asia’s leading djs. His unique and quirky sense of electronic house music has taken him the world over. Steadily building up a strong catalogue of his very own style of productions on various labels, he was named ‘Best New DJ’ 2004 and ‘Best DJ’ 2005 two years in a row in Malaysian club culture and dance music bible Juice magazine.

RaySoo started djing at the age of 14, and at 17 was one of the first DJs to play at the now legendary Zouk Club in Singapore for the first “Sessions” parties in the early 90’s. His talent and passion for the music continued to enhance his regional profile, playing at such infamous clubs as Barracuda, Samsara, Liquid Room, Boom Boom Room and Heaven - culminating in his headlining performance at the massive 1998 Commonwealth Games Outdoor Closing Party at The Mines resort in Kuala Lumpur. From 2004 to 2007 he was resident dj at the new Zouk Club Kuala Lumpur, showcasing his versatility with his signature sets that cover an impressive range of electronic dance music genres - swerving from minimal to maximal house and techno via the freshest style-defining sounds from a multifaceted landscape of influences from around the world – and playing alongside the likes of Carl Cox, Tiefschwarz, John Digweed, Sven Vath, Danny Howells, James Holden and Stacey Pullen. His nite Push won ‘Best Clubnite” in Juice magazines ‘best of 2006 awards’.

In the past years he has been invited to play in the Global Gathering in Malaysia, Worldwide Festival in Singapore, Hanoi Sound Festival in Vietnam, and the C/O POP Festival in Cologne Germany. In 2008 he spent three months in Berlin, playing gigs at the Berghain/Panoramabar and several other venues around Europe.

In 2008 Ray launched his new label Love International who managed so far more than 20 releases from the likes of Losoul, Goodnight Electric, Space System, Turner, Mr. Fluff, PelleGrosso, DeepHouseSociety, Tonic, and others. RaySoo releases have found their way into the record/cd boxes/computers of people from house heavyweight John Digweed to techno veteran Marco Bailey. Love International continues to hold label showcases in locales from Singapore to Amsterdam to Tokyo to Berlin.

The internationally acclaimed DJ RaySoo will perform tomorrow Friday April 13, 2012 at 10:00 PM at the Cairo Jazz Club.
