Soul vets will know that RAY HAYDEN is a long standing mainstay on the UK soul and dance scene. He’s worked (remixes and production) with people like Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Will Smith, Mary J Blige, Mica Paris and Martine Girault. In recent years he’s diversified into things multimedia and his movie ‘Brightlingsea’ has picked up plenty of plaudits.

Right now Ray’s resurrecting to his OPAZ music project – the collective were big in the 90s; you may remember things like ‘Don’t Say Nuthin’’ and ‘I Don’t Want It’.

On May 29th Ray/Opaz will launch their fresh, new single ‘Make You Wanna Dance’. It’s an infectious up tempo funk/dance groove that will get all sorts of your bits moving! The cut will be the focus track on an EP that also delivers remixes  and a classic soul flavoured ‘Holding you Tight’. And we’re told, because of Ray’s dalliance with technology, the release will also include state of the art AI generated videos! Interesting!
