Rae is that fairly unique dance industry combination of singer-songwriter, DJ, remixer and producer – a combination serving her increasingly well as her lively audience grows and expectations ramp up accordingly. Take Me Away’, her huge house single alongside bass titan DJ S.K.T on Atlantic records has become one of this summers anthems and hit #19 in the UK charts. Hype has rocketed and Rae has become common club land talking point. It’s a good job and not unexpected then that she has plenty more to come. Rae, and her multi-faceted talent is going nowhere.
She has, of course, been around electronic music – house music – for a while now. Rae’s debut release was as lead vocalist and songwriter on Kings Of Tomorrow’s 2008 anthem ‘Can’t Stop’ She has continued to drive a quality house agenda, largely under Defected Records’ patronage, with further confident productions such as ‘Hide U’ (next to Rivera), ‘It’s Over’ (with ATFC), ‘Your Words’ (with Studio Apartment) and, in 2012, ‘Another Day’ a soaring solo escapade.
More recently has come meaty fayre including ‘The Boom Boom Room EP 2’ with Doorly (on Toolroom, 2013) ‘Not Gonna Love You’ with Nathan Dalton (on Audio Rehab, 2014) and “Sirens” with Danism (on Food music 2014) In total, these outings have enhanced her abilities as producer, performer, author and even remixer. In turn, they’ve cemented her status as a female house artist to be reckoned with.
That’s not forgetting her prowess on stage. Based between London and Ibiza, Rae has always been well placed to entertain the world’s key dancefloors throughout winter and summer seasons. Moving easily between gigs built on emotive live performance and those smartly positioning soulful, improv vocals over A-grade tech DJing (not easily, or often done) Rae has clocked up prominent spots at festivals including iTunes, Lakedance and Sunburn, and clubs like Ministry, EGG and Pacha.
She has hit high notes at ADE and WMC and, back to Ibiza, was the first DJ-singer to perform at Ushuaia for Defected during its debut summer residency in 2011.
Rae lengthens her love affair with the White Isle by playing for Defected In The House at Together’s Tuesday night Amnesia residency as well as delivering monthly dates at swish club- restaurant Lio. This, whilst continuing to pen and craft a swathe of new solo and collaborative material. She’s seriously, relentlessly on the charge; and why not? Marrying powerful vocals and house beats in ever more creative ways, Rae’s is a strikingly up-to-date voice ensuring maximum standout from the packed-to-the-rafters crowd
