Sean Ray - Fiend For You (Boogie Basics)

Los Angeles label Boogie Basics aligns with one of their city’s own for “Fiend For You" from veteran DJ/producer Sean Ray. Sean’s been DJ’ing endlessly in the L.A. area, playing notable venues and festivals like Vanguard, Electric Daisy Carnival, and even the Tron-themed ElecTRONica event. His highlight as a DJ was perhaps a 2010 New Year’s Eve gig in Vietnam which found Sean Ray in front of about 30,000 revelers. As a producer, Sean is part of Hollywood Knightz and has had his work appear on the discographies of Looq, System Recordings, Perfecto, and Gut Feel Records.

"Fiend For You" is a sleek, late-night house music cut that glides like a sports car on cruise control. A steady drum machine rhythm and a warm low end provide the groove while bell-like synths gently play the melody. A soulful vocal sings "I’ll treat you right" adding - shall we say - fiendishly to the cut’s magic. Top stuff.

The two remixes turn the energy knob to ‘11’ for bigger room broadcasts. NYC-to-L.A. producer Mark Kane (Stripped Digital, Looq) adds a growling bass to some solid nightclub rhythms, slicing the vocals into effective stabs and bursts. A nice mid-section breakdown builds to a dance-inducing climax. The second remix comes from Britisher-in-Asia Rob Nutek (Baroque, RE:NU) who gives “Fiend For You” a funky, insistent four-on-the-floor drive. Dubby treatments are added to the vocal hits in key sections while truncated synth chords and a rolling bass line accelerate the track’s movement. It’s another fine set of club-worthy tunes from our friends at Boogie Basics.
