Hailing from Barcelona, Spain, Raider’s musical endeavor started from his love with EDM at an early age. His exposure to the forerunners of EDM - Skrillex, Deadmau5, ZEDD, and KDrew - catapulted his musical journey to what it has become today. Using a popular DAW as his tool, the young aspiring producer, at first, made low grade Big Room tracks. However, with persistence and unbounded encouragement, his sound evolved and progressed into more beautifully orchestrated and melodious tracks, ultimately leading to his debut EP. Taking inspiration from anime and manga, Raider became more self aware of his potential in the past year which enabled him to write honest, and most importantly, authentic music. "The Others" EP is available on Spotify and Soundcloud now.
“The Others” is the first track from Raider’s upcoming debut EP. It begins by unveiling an emotively charged chord progression layered with hauntingly captive vocals, snowballing to a high-energy, Futurebass centric drop. Being the track that glued the EP together, this sonic journey has opened the flood gate of Raider’s creativity, keeping his sound authentically pure and and this EP speaks inspiration.

Following his first track, “I’m New” slightly pivots to a more melodiously drifting and sonically cheerful. Featuring singer Gabriel Lal, her impeccable vocals brought more liveliness to the track, as well as filling the higher registers in the drop with the on-point vocal chops. This will, without a doubt, instantaneously put you in a better mood.

“Close My Eyes” has a more darker, reminiscently bittersweet taste than the rest of the tracks. The rolling reese bass, airy flute-esque lead, and vocals of impeccable quality makes this track a cohesive, untainted piece full of emotions and raw energy. Just close your eyes and feel it.
