PLAYING THE BAY: Ray Reck Brings the Bounce

COLUMNS|Playing The Bay

A little over seven years ago, Ray Reck accepted an invitation on a whim to DJ a gig in San Francisco, and since then has been swinging beats and moving hips from Venice Beach, to San Jose, to Oakland and San Francisco. Representing the spirit of Oakland Bounce, a femme collective of bounce enthusiasts, Ray has found a seat at the table mixing all types of genres – but above all, Jersey Club. Her remix EP P. Posse pays homage to all the women who have blazed trails in influencing hip hop.

You can catch Ray Reck at Hiero Day Festival 2018 in Oakland on September 3rd, and check out our interview below.
