Joseph Ray, a GRAMMY-winning producer and member of the electronic trio NERO, has unveiled his latest EP titled ‘A Power Over Me’ following the successful release of singles including ‘Blue Nights’, ‘Cos Of You’, and ‘Give Me A Reason’.

The EP features new single ‘A Power Over Me’, featuring Elliot Vass’s thought-provoking vocals complemented by delicate piano melodies and groove-filled percussion. Joseph’s expansive production style, which has garnered support from esteemed artists including DJ Kobe, Solomun, Pete Tong, Huneee, and more, is prominently displayed throughout the five-track EP.

The artwork for the EP borrows from the iconic ‘90s UK nightlife photography of Dave Swindells, serving as a nod to the pulsating energy of UK house and jungle music that has influenced Joseph Ray’s latest EP.

“I remember seeing Dave’s Ibiza ’89 book a while back and loving the imagery. Anjuna had been in touch with him more recently, and it was great to find out he’d be open to providing some of his photography as artwork for the EP. The images of people lost in the music, vintage and euphoric seemed to fit the music perfectly.” – Joseph Ray

The EP’s singles, including ‘Blue Nights’, ‘Cos Of You’, and ‘Give Me A Reason’, have amassed over 400,000 streams and plays on KissFM, KCRW and Slam!FM. This is in addition to Joseph’s 2021 collaborative album ‘Leave the Bones’, written and recorded with Haitian band Lakou Mizik. The album has been celebrated by the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Worldwide FM, Billboard and The Times and showcased just how versatile Joseph is to an international audience.

Facts About Music Production and Genres

From the earliest calls and rhythms beaten out with sticks and stones by our ancient ancestors to the complex harmonies of a classical symphony and hypnotic beats of dance music, music has become one of the most powerful forms of human expression and entertainment. Music is also an integral part of the culture of a society and can influence its lifestyle, as demonstrated by the popular fusion of traditional and modern sounds in some musical genres and the ubiquity of catchy pop tunes in advertising campaigns.


Getting from an artist’s raw talent, ideas or songs to a finished musical product can be a long journey, and the producer is responsible for charting the course. Many producers work for record labels, and their job is to find new talent, propose projects and bring them to life. Others are independent producers who find artists they believe in and are able to offer them creative freedom to make a successful musical product.


The arrangement of instruments within a song is another important aspect of making music. Whether the instrumentation is simple, requiring just a guitar and vocals, or complex with several chord-playing instruments and a bass and drum kit, the arrangement of the components must add energy and interest to a song. This can be accomplished by building the dynamics, introducing twists and turns, and adding a variety of textures and timbres.

Whether you love to rock out to Metallica or get down to Mariah Carey, there is a genre of music that is just right for you. This summer, there are several concerts and festivals in Southern California and beyond that offer something for everyone.
