[soundcloud id=’23760246′]

 

Gregory Calay aka Gr-oy, born in Belgium and partly raised in Germany, is motivated by music and greatly interested in computer programs. No wonder then that he quickly decided to put these two things together and electronic music became his real passion. In early 2000s Gregory started producing electronic music using Reason and Fruity Loops but then life intervened.

After a very long break, he seriously restarted his own productions in 2009 and this time using Ableton Live, VSTs, Plug-ins and many others. His style can be defined as a mix between deep techno/house and dark down tempo. As his major influences he lists artists and labels such as Thinner, Basic Channel, Swayzak, Ellen Allien, Sascha Funke, Luke Vibert, Kompakt, Dessous Recordings, Warp, Massive Attack…
2010/11 have been good years for Gr-oy as his productions and remixes have been released on Indigo Records, Incense Records, RBL Records, Aenaria Recordings, Kosmo Netlabel, Groovecaffe Netlabel, Melodica Netlabel, Dark Vibe Productions, Scander Records, Eyepatch Recordings.

His new release for Eyepatch Recordings comes with two original tracks, Red Light and Spacewalk plus 2 remixes from Frank Sebastian and Confusion Concepts.
