RAY FOXX (Defected, Strictly Rhythm)
In 2011 Ray Foxx stamped his name into the world with his 8 track Mixtape, containing the huge track ‘The Trumpeter’ which was heavily supported by Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, DJ Target and Trevor Nelson to name just a few. Later that year, supplied with vocals by Lovelle the track moved into the UK dance charts as ‘La Musica’ (Defected) helping to prove that he is a cut above the rest.
Since that moment Ray has been crafting and working on developing his productions and DJ career, which has taken him around the world including massive shows in the UK, Ibiza, Bali, South Africa and all around Europe.
2013 saw ‘Boom Boom (Heartbeat)’ featuring Rachel K Collier (Strictly Rhythm/ Island), land in the UK top 20 which peaked at number 2 in the iTunes Dance Chart and stayed in the UK top 20 for 4 weeks.
Ray became a resident guest DJ on 1Xtra providing the ‘Daily Dose Mix’ for Mistajam and then got asked to present his own weekly show on Kiss FM’s digital station Kiss Fresh which then led to a permanent slot on Kiss FM.
In 2015 Ray Foxx teamed up with Rachel K Collier again on the release ‘Curious’ released on Island Records.
Ray Foxx has remixed a broad selection of artists from Hard-Fi to Wookie, Dizzee Rascal, Sigma and more.
2016 is an exciting year for Ray Foxx as he launches his own label imprint Foxx Head Music, with the debut release coming out in spring. Ray Foxx also has new music out on This Ain’t Bristol and Sharam Jey’s label Bunny Tiger.
Ben Webb AKA KORT Tropical Velvet’s founder and creative source is constantly pushing boundaries and developing as an artist, KORT has dedicated himself to a vision of quality house music with a distinctive feel. This is also the same for Tropical Velvet, which can be clearly heard in the quality & style of the releases & the kind of artists that have signed & worked on the label.
Since winning the Defected Producers competition in 2011 & signing a publishing deal with Defected Music KORT embarked upon a journey with Copyright Recordings which started with the success of “Tomorrow” and has seen several subsequent Traxsource number one’s, and top ten chart positions along the way.
Probably best known for the “No Fear EP”achieving Traxsource House chart Top 10, radio play on BBC Radio 1courtesy of B Traits, and voted best track of 2013 by classyhousemusic.com react-text: 608 , KORT went on to make 2014 a key year launching the label, Tropical Velvet with a well received vocal collaboration (KORT ft Jessica Symonds – For You).
