Style Of Eye is one of the most trustworthy names in dance music: each new release is as on point as the last, managing to surprise with new sounds and dependably BANG in nightspot and festival settings alike.
His newest for Fool’s Gold, “Ray Dee Oh” is a perfect synthesis of pop piano riffs, synthesizer zaps and gigantor rave drums, with Gina Turner’s chopped up, warped disco princess vocals helping tie it all together. The cheekily titled AM and FM mixes (along with the relentless club version) offer something for everyone, with “Norway” providing the perfect chill-out-room closer to this EP. Tune your dials to SOE and lock in for this one – grab “Ray Dee Oh” now on Beatport!

We also dug up a few of the commemorative FG x ALIFE tees from the archives, which you can grab on our webstore. Act fast! Read More
