Relentless Beats

DJ to Watch: Cray

CRAY, short for Cheney Ray, is not actually an abbreviation for “crazy, which we learned in her bio via her website. Mind. Blown. The LA-based DJ, singer, and producer has been bringing color, class, and gammer sass to the scene since 2015 and in that time we have gathered as her adoring chickens to hit tracks like “Peaches,” “Fractions,” and “4never.” This queen has been crowed our DJ to Watch this week for reasons you can hear below.

Her rise to EDM fame started when she was an opener on Anna Lunoe’s HyperHouse Tour in 2016. After that, it was nothing but packed stages and chickens flocking to her every show and festival set like HARD Summer, VooDoo and Electric Zoo. CRAY  went international in 2018. She kicked off a year of touring through Japan alongside Skrillex, followed by multiple festival appearances and went on to inject a little CRAYziness into China for her own tour.

Inspired by her love for classical jazz and swing artists like Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday, CRAY brings a refreshing perspective to the electronic scene. Her inventive records allow her to avoid labels and continually reinvent her sound, resulting in a fan base that spans the indie electronic, pop and dance genres. On one of her more recent singles like  “Isn’t It” and “Love Cemetery” she continues to show us a different side of her and gives us a look at what’s to come.

Now it’s finally time to get a little cray….with cray down in the Dirty T at Dusk Music Festival. She will be heating up the decks for Kaskade, Arizona, and Broncho. Don’t wait for tickets to go up, grab yours NOW!
