Born in the Canary Islands, Rayko is a producer and DJ deeply influenced by the artists and sounds of the 70′s and 80′s (mainly Disco, Boogie, Funk and Rock.)
These influences led him to launch the label Rare Wiri in the summer of 2008, gaining immediate critical acclaim with it’s first release making Record of the Week at Manchester’s highly regarded Piccadilly Records.
Since it’s launch Rare Wiri has had releases from a stable of talented producers, these include Ilija Rudman, Ichisan, Phoreski, Marbeya Sound, Beatfanatic, Cosmonauts, Ilya Santana,… not to mention Rayko himself.
Rayko has an impressive portfolio of releases under his belt and has an almost insatiable thirst for editing both classics and lost gems in his distinctive and infectious style.
As a DJ, Rayko continues to wow audiences around the globe with his trademark sound. (Rio de Janeiro, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Istanbul, Bucharest, Helsinki, Belgrade, Brussels, Paris, Bratislava ….)
Things look set to get even crazier with a string of 12″ and digital releases, remixes and international DJ bookings scheduled for the coming months.
