Placid Larry (alias Daniel Ray) is a South African born electronic music producer, currently living in Bahrain where he has been developing his sound and has been working as a resident DJ in a restaurant/lounge since 2007.
His influences are vast – from trip-hop through jazz and house to drum&bass.
His second release on label Lemongrassmusic is named “12” – an album of deep heartfelt goodness . 12 short stories encompassing a refined outlook on downtempo and broken beats without sacrificing the necessary. An uncomplicated array of work focused around the idea of simplicity .
Despite the seriousness at times , the album possesses a strong overall sense of positivity – a belief that better things are to come . Gentle emotive tracks for happy peaceful times ..
