Ray Keith

Ray Keith

DJ/ producer from Colchester, UK. From rare-groove to acid-house to hardcore to jungle, Ray Keith remained one of the most steady DJs on England's breakbeat scene during the 1980s and '90s. After a remix of Orbital's "Chime," he moved into production with apparent ease and became a respected drum'n'bass label-head as well. Keith began DJing soul, hip-hop and rare-groove around Essex and Suffolk in the mid 1980s until the acid house and hardcore explosion of the late '80s and early '90s. His first break playing house was at Oscars in Clacton-On-Sea. He then became a resident at The Crazy Club at the Astoria and latterly Innersense & Movement, as well as now owning the Best Of British organisation. He has had his own radio show on Vibe FM, alongside occasional shows on Kiss FM. By the middle of the '90s, he had become one of the most inspired drum'n'bass DJs and remixers. His own productions, including the jump-up anthem "Terrorist" began taking center stage by the mid-'90s and Keith formed three separate labels -- Penny Black, Dread and UFO -- in 1996. He has worked in close association with Gavin Cheung (aka Nookie) and also works at one of the premiere dance shops in Britain, Black Market Records (after leaving City Sounds). In 1997 he set up a new label -- Dub Dread --, and by 2003 had co-founded a DJ agency, Dread Entertainment Agency alongside his partner, Lena. Keith released the Penny Black collection Breakage, Vol. 1 in 1997, followed by a solo debut of sorts, 1999's UFO Presents Contact. Read more
