Only a few weeks after release “Fractions,” Cray has put her own touch on Jai Wolf‘s emotive release “Lost” featuring Chelsea Jade. “Lost” ended Jai Wolf’s 16-month hiatus from releasing music, and the indie electronic original features soothing vocals juxtaposed against a flowing electro backdrop that is an enchanting end to the producer’s silence.
Cray initially slows down the BPM to focus on Jade’s vocals, leading the listener to believe that this remix would be anchored on melancholic vocal stretches with rather than being outrightly electronica in nature. However, Cray adds in a jolting twist with layers of euphoric electronic notes and an additional bassline that increases her version’s energy. She certainly adds a new dimension to the original.
Cheney Ray is an artist who seems to “do it all.” Better known as Cray in the music world, the Canadian born gamer, producer, DJ, and vocalist is back with a new piece titled “Fractions.” She has also released an accompanying music video that as enamoring as the song itself.
“Fractions” features Ray’s smooth vocals and a downtempo backdrop that work together to manifest a relaxing framework. It is perfect for someone needing a moment of respite and calm, and it is a welcome addition to her growing collection of releases. Those who follow Ray on social media know that she has been touting a new hair style, with half of her hair dyed Brunette and the other half dyed Blonde. The video is a juxtaposition of her two sides, showing off her multifaceted nature in and out of the studio.
