Raito is something of an enigma when it comes to the sound currently emanating from France at the moment.
Thrust between the harsh acid techno that has risen to prominence in Paris and the house sound that we’ve become accustomed to from the country his sound is if anything a rough tribute to that of the storied Ed Banger, who in turn are celebrating their 15th year in existence.
While that comparison is about as loose as they get, his close relationship with Boize Noize somewhat affirms that and has brought his sound far further than just France. His admiration of breakbeat and rave probably relates much more to that of the UK than anything we’re used to from french artists, solidifying Raito not only as one of the most innovative artists coming from the house and techno institution but the sound of a new French wave.
