Ray Mang

Number One / Look Into My Eyes

Mangled Records twentieth release also marks 20 years since it's first release. To celebrate the occasion here are two of Ray Mang's better known and loved tracks together on one 180gram Mangled 12" for you! "Number One" first surfaced on his solo debut '96 Noid release. It gained widespread support in the clubs and went on to be featured on both DFP's De-Luxe House Of Funk and Groove Armada's Back To Mine compilations as well as his own Mangled LP. Over on the flip, "Look Into My Eyes" is a blissed out Balearic gem that featured on the B side of Ray's '10 DFA release and instantly became a firm favourite for many, flipping Tangerine Dream's "Love On A Real Train" into a synth house heater for the beards and Birks scene. Top!


Patrick says: Thick funk breaks, warm West End style keys and that killer Raj / Idjuts ear for mind bending dub style, all support the sublime "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" style bass. New disco never really got any better than the A-side here! On the flip, Raj twisted a Tangerine Dream classic into a rushy bit of synth house, perfect for the Balearic masses!

Soul Clap enlisted certifiable diva legend Nona Hendryx to voice "Shine" on their self-titled 2016 album. Now Ray Mang has got his mitts on the parts and turned out three versions for his own Mangled label - the classic combination of extended vocal, instrumental and radio edit versions. Whichever cut suits you best, the vibe is the same; a bold and bright summer party track splashed with horns, keys and plenty more besides, although the smart money is on Hendryx's legendary vocal, which soars as though no time has passed since her days working with Material in 80s NYC.


Sil says: Dub, reverb, echo, edit? Sold. That is me. That is how I like it. Veteran Ray Mang does not go wrong. Massive edit here very much in the likes of Idjut Boys et al. Absolutely essential bar the radio version. Why is it there?
