Today we have a bangin’ new premiere from our mysterious friend partywithray. For today’s feature, Ray delivers a formidable flip of the iconic single “Swimming Pools (Drank)” by Kendrick Lamar. Rays Flip pitches down Lamar’s prolific performance for that deep and ominous vocal character that permeates throughout Ray’s tracks. Building upon the vibe, Ray replaces the original instrumentation with a heavy hitting deep house track of his own design. On top of his usual banging drums and bass, Ray elaborates on the melody with cinematic synth lines fondly reminiscent of early Justice or Deadmau5 records. If that wasn’t enough, He shows off his versatility halfway through the track breaking it down for a killer break beat section before returning to his signature house vibe.
Despite being the party animal that he is, Ray has been working tirelessly both in the studio and now on the road. If you’re in Colorado next month, make sure to catch partywithray on March 21st and 22nd alongside ZHU at Belly Up in Aspen. If you’d like to see him locally, he’ll be joining us March 29th for our second installment of Side 2 Side at the Echo. Keep it locked here for more fresh tunes from partywithray and check him out on Instagram to stay up to date with all the latest from Ray himself.
