raya's first compilation album, collectivism,
This compilation is a platform for all the artists that have
contributed to Raya over the past 3 years. "Collectivism" is
a celebration of the artists that have all played at the Raya
residency at The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA). Time
out called Raya "simply it's own thing and part of a new breed
of nightlife events that fall between known worlds - gallery,
disco, rave and installation - to make fresh ones".
Beginning with the beautiful contemporary classical
of Abigail Hatherley and includes exclusive tracks from the likes
of Tom Churchill (i-D magazine's DJ of the month, Jan 2000)
& Big Chill co-founder Pete Lawrence (in his Chilled by
Nature guise) and takes in all that's good about the current
leftfield electronic scene. From the "beautifully fragile electronica"
of CiM (Muzik) to the twisted breaks of Phantom Beats via the
wigged out Joe Meek meets toy town sounds of the Friendly Scientist
(NME single of the week) as well as the sublime dub house of
Whistle Bump's Simon Haggis (KLaSH Productions).
i-D magazine said of Collectivism: "From the beguiling
neo-classicism of Abigail Hatherley through the deep rollin'
funk of KLaSH to the slo-mo sleaze of Les Elles, the radical
Raya collective (including CiM, Pete Lawrence and Friendly Scientist)
sure are a genre-hopping bunch. "All different, all equal" they
say. All wicked, all fucking superb we say"
