ICYMI – the young bass connoisseur-Ray Volpe–released his newest track “Memories of You” on Thrive Music this past Friday, September 13. “Memories of You” begins with a haunting, atmospheric background before Ray’s vocals assert themselves over the underlying echos. He then meticulously adds phasing distortion before unleashing into an emotional, synth-heavy drop. It all fades as quickly as the drop comes though, while Ray croons about heartbreak before ripping the whole record to shreds in a fit of sonic fury.

Ray Volpe says of “Memories of You”: “This song completely covers all of the styles of music I love to make. Blending dreamy melodic chord focused drops with huge bass heavy b-sections for the headbangers/bass fans. It just feels right to me and comes naturally. I’ve been doing this combination for years, but lately, it’s been calling me a lot more. I grew up listening to post-hardcore and metalcore, so the addition of the guitar in the builds with the emo vox I wrote felt like a perfect match. It’s safe to say this is one of my favorite songs I’ve made, and I hope everyone else feels the same.”
“Ray Volpe’s bass-heavy bangers originally earned him a reputation as one of the leaders of the new-age revival of dubstep, but the young producer began to show a new side of himself with his first single on Thrive Music – Save Me.
Ray Volpe continues to develop his sound and force his fans to adapt their expectations.” (Magnetic Magazine, September 16, 2019). Stay tuned for more from the young producer, later this year – and beyond.
