Particle Ray – Snake Church
The latest addition to the Recordbreakin’ Music roster, Particle Ray makes his label debut with Snake Church.
Snake Church is the result of me listening to myself. It’s my stubborn will to keep pushing after finding an unfamiliar feelings of low. It’s awareness of the people who wish the best of me. It’s being genuine despite the perceived vulnerability. It’s facing the world around me no matter how discouraging. The core of what I do is house music and I don’t think that will change. I don’t think house is meant to be exclusive to dance floor but should be danceable. Head nodding, booty shaking and intimate listening don’t need to be mutually exclusive.
