Furthermore, another release is a collaboration of Ray Kajioka and the swiss DJ and producer Diego Hostettler (well-known for his great techno-productions on Kanzleramt, Damage, K20, U-Turn etc.). "Early Bird" (1532005) is a fresh and juicy package of two driving Techno tracks by Diego & Ray and two fantastic remixes by Joel Mull and Sterac alias Steve Rachmad.

NEW REMIXES - ADI DUMITRA - SUSPICIUNE
Donnerstag 2012, Aug 23rd
Ray shows up straight with two remixes this time. The first mix is a nice refreshing tech housy tune, while the dub version is more deeper and trippy. Have a listen into the stuff right here..
Monday 2012, Feb 6th
Elbee Bad "In The Sky" (Original & Remixes is now available as mp3 package at the Kudos Online Record Shop, UK.
After the big success of his remixes for David Durango & Sven Elmlund the labelboss Alexander Kowalski now returns with a own release on Damage Music Berlin.
„Crossing The Borderline“ is a track he is playing in his live-sets all over the globe for a while now. For the studio version of it he could use all that experience and make it a floor tested techno bomb. The heavy bassline and the pumping percussions give the track a strong drive that ends up in a break with sweet strings and flying hypnotic synth-sounds to find it´s release back in the bass again.
Ray's version of "Crossing The Borderline" is darker techno mix. He strips down the track to it´s essential parts. The super dry kickdrum and percussions in combination with the dark reverbs are creating Ray´s own world of techno.
have a listen here right now...
