Hailing from Prague, DJ and producer Roman Rai has been an essential part of Czech electronic scene for over 20 years. But ultimately his creativity and energy have touched artists, projects, dancers and music listeners not only in his home country but beyond its borders.
His three latest EP’s: ‘Nature and Silence’, ‘Perceptions of Delusion’, and ‘Walking on the Water’ received support from industry heavyweights such as Sasha, Jooris Voorn, Lee Van Dowski, Hernan Cattaneo, Kolsch and others. The ‘Abstract Theories’ EP even ranked 33rd in Beatport’s Top 100 techno releases.
Roman’s achievements include official remixes for the American Grammy-winning duo Deep Forest, legendary British DJ Danny Howells and many others. His tracks have been released on all continents, and ‘Thinking of Suzanne’ was included in the premiere special edition three-hour BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix of SOS.
One of his latest tracks called ‘Psyma’ came out on the 21st of August 2017 via Connaisseur Rec, and it has been played by Oona Dahl as an opener in her set on the legendary Burning Man’s Mayan Warrior.
Since September 2018, Roman along with his friend Täino founded a record label named Moving Pictures. The label’s primary focus is on putting out captivating and emotionally charged sound via series of vinyl and digital releases. The creative process and DIY approach are key pillars of the output’s philosophy. Exactly on this label Roman released his second album ‘Middle of Nowhere’, in which he expressed the story of his life and experiences through sounds.
