Ráfla is an Irish producer currently based in the Austrian alps. With a love for all things house, his style has been influenced by the likes of Coastdream, DJRUM and DJ Tennis. Initially a DJ, his recent forray into the world of production was the result of some free time over the covid lockdown.
His musical inspirations are many but to name a few alongside the aforementioned, they would be; Matthieu Faubourg, DJ Steaw, and Black Loops.

Whether it is sunrise or sunset 'EIVISSA' is perfectly suited. Harking back to soundtracks on low-grain quality videos of Ibiza in the 90's, swirling synths carry you over a classic house piano chord sequence. Elongated acid lines a plodding bass-line and a magical atmospheric resonance make this chilled house track an engrossing listen, giving you an undeniable flashback of classic house on the white isle. For your deep mix, warmup, poolside & lounge vibes

Leaning towards an electro sound, Ráfla still keeps a smooth and floaty feel with his nuanced use of ethereal synths that ebb & flow around your auditory perception. What becomes prominent in 'HER' is the hi- tempo beat which incorporates bongos that dance from ear to ear. Add to that a pulsating and 303 style bass-line that will noodle through your brain and get stuck there for the rest of the day.

A hi-energy track which will remind you of late night Tokyo drift racers that own the dark streets. Racing through your mind with a tapping hi-hat covered in dust, surrounded by a multi-layered synth and a deep sub-bass. A rhythmic key pattern loops in-between the phased and filtered staccato background layers. HI-NRG for the disenfranchised people of the night.

You could be confused to learn that 'YKHN' provides the most intensity of all of the tracks. Its peaceful intro - which includes serene synths that are akin to title track 'EIVISSA' - is soon shattered. Hi-tempo Drum & Bass with an extra heavy kick drum inject energy against the calmness of the keys. Like liquid jungle and DNB of old but with an analogue pulsing bass-line - giving the track a tinge of eeriness. Now, imagine this track seeping out of an underground club in a dark, futuristic dystopia with blinking neon signs. Atmospheric, deep and intense - 'YKHN' will have you lost in the moment.
