Ray Okpara - For Those Who Know EP [This and That Lab]


Ray Okpara - For Those Who Know EP [This and That Lab]

Making his label debut on This And That Lab, Ray Okpara features two original tracks on his For Those Who Know EP with a remix from label head Davide Squillace.

For Those Who Know opens with its rippling pads and a captivating vocal about the passage of time. Blending deep atmosphere with ambient effects, the stripped back percussion provides the framework that gives this understated track the rigid foundation.

Second is Davide Squillace’s remix of For Those Who Know which is a darker take on the original. Looping a short section of the vocal and twisting the sound, he keeps the original’s funk but also adds a new jerking lead sound playing intense melody stabs.

Finishing the release, Off To The Mix which is trademark of Ray Okpara’s style. It has ticking off beat percussion blended as part of a tribal rhythm, and letting the percussion take control, the textured pads create soothing tones. Subtle bursts of jazzy melody are the finishing touch to this production masterpiece.
