Ray Mang

is the disco alter ego of London-based Raj Gupta. He is one of the most insisting and senior deputies of Nu Disco. Together with Faze Action, the Idjut Boys and The Glimmers, as well as through his own projects Block 16, Motif and Sound Captives he released masterpieces of this booming genre since 1996.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Dinosaur L - Go Bang

It sounds as fresh today as it did then.

you take a bubble bath?
Gatto Fritto - Bursting The Bubble

Half way through, when the track changes, lie back, turn the hot tap on and add more foam.

you relax on a beach?
Roy Ayers - Everybody Loves The Sunshine

Almost a standard but I can still enjoy it in this setting.

you drive a car late at night?
Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic

Great track for driving at night in the city traffic. The only problem is: it tends to make you drive much too quickly.

you drive into the country?
Steve Reich - Electric Counterpoint

Performed by guitar player Pat Metheny. Yeah, I know it’s an album, but I normally listen to the whole thing on a dreamy drive into the country.

you fall asleep?
Martin Denny - Quiet Village

 A marvellously tranquil way to close your eyes.

you jog?
Lenny Williams - You Got Me Running

The Danny Krivit edit keeps the bassline rolling and rolling and rolling. So this is excellent for jogging.

you make breakfast?
Willie Bobo - Spanish Grease

Huevos Rancheros for me please.

you sit in a plane?
Ben Richardson - Sky Diver

Great to fly to. Even better if you’re heading for Italy. 

you play a game of chess?
Manuel Göttsching - E2-E4

Of course! The classic opening move. 

you stay in bed?
Gwen Guthrie - Seventh Heaven

Dream record on all levels!

you are stoned?
Scientist - Meets The Space Invaders

Exactly what I used to listen to when I started out down that road many moons ago.

you sit in the subway?
Tangerine Dream - Love On A Real Train

From the «Risky Business» OST. Dreaming of having Rebecca De Mornay sitting on my lap.

you wake up?
Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World

Always a beautiful way to start the day. Orchestrated to perfection!

you walk in the rain?
Eddie Kendricks - Date With The Rain

Guaranteed to put a spring in my step even in the depths of the winter showers.
