RAY KAJIOKA –
FROM ALL CORNERS
KOTTI ISLAND DISC – AN AUDITIVE SNAPSHOT
TRESOR354 – Tresor Records
“From All Corners”” is about one of the busiest places in Berlin and its daily grind, the Kottbusser Tor (also known as “Kotti” in a Berlin vernacular). A place, where you find a clash of diverse people from all corners of the world. Kotti is a square, a transit place, a neighbourhood, a nightlife spot at the same time. All that together at close quearters.
“In this Track, I reflect my Kotti-impressions and experiences in a darker but still warm melodic way.”
A deeper techno track with catchy synth sequences and a basic drumming, which are built around the vocal line. A melancholic tune. Whereas the voice itself already bring a certain melancholic vibe.
The idea for “From All Corners” is based on the concept of the “Kotti Island Disc” project and is therefore an integral part of it.
Release-Date: May 12th, 2023

RAY KAJIOKA – HYPERFOCUS EP
ka184 – Kanzleramt Music
Ray Kajioka glimpses ADHD for brief moments on his “Hyperfocus EP”. RAY was wondering, if there could be a possible resemblance between his brain going into hyper-focus and ADHD. With the biggest difference here being ADHD does not have an off switch nor does it fades away – so no joke. Ray is using his “Hyperfocus” moments to express himself creatively and considers them precious, never knowing when they occur or disappear. They describes that very moment all comes together like through a burning glas. But like being diagnosed with ADHD, distractions are the enemy. Ooh, we’re in trouble. This is way to serious for a promo text. And if your read all ’til here, you could be in trouble with us. Thankfully, RAY held his shit together and recorded the “Hyperfocus EP”.
“Hyperfocus EP” is available on kanzleramt.bandcamp and all other digital platforms
Release-Date: May 12th, 2023

RAY KAJIOKA – TAKE ACTION
ka180, Kanzleramt Music
Ray keeps delivering very special gems, and especially excellent ones for our anniversary.
“Lacking” represents the lack of action about how we all move along as human kind. People seem to know what to do, but choose ignore it lethargically. Still, once you’ve been sucked into the realm of “Lacking”, there is hope at its prettiest. The flip-side of this is “Taking Action“ Ray description of a possible future if we only were better together. The pure drive of “Interference” is the can-opener to Ray’s world with lots of detail for his funk for you to approach and to play with.
Release-Date: October 25th, 2019
