    Juno Review:

    Not a week goes by without a new Rayko release dropping, making him the disco edit scene's version of Marco Dionigi, a man who finishes an album on average every 13 seconds. Dragon Soul, though, is the Spanish re-edit king's first full-length. It rather surprisingly hangs together well as an album, offering a typically dubbed-out mix of sparkling boogie, comfy deep house and, of course, cheeky disco. Highlights wise, there's plenty to excite, from an excellent re-dub of D-Train and the sweaty disco of "Love Wars", to the oh-so-sensual "Conscious Of My Love" and the jazzy gorgeousness of "You're No Better Than A Common Thief".

    Turntable Lab review:

    Stellar FULL LENGTH of edits and reworks from spanish boogie expert Rayko

    When it comes to disco and boogie edits this dude's work is top notch, and on Dragon Soul we are treated to a gang of cuts that'll work the floor over and then some. Obviously selection plays an important part in any good edit, and Rayko picks the jams ranging from sexy disco funk (Sumy's "Funkin In Your Mind") and party starting italo (K.I.D.'s "Come And Get It") to slept-on garage style classics (D-Train's "Keep Giving Me Love") and deep burning 80's r&b (Womack & Womack "Conscious of My Conscious" and "Love Wars"). All edits are done tastefully with much respect to the original and enough added punch to move the modern dancefloor. Also includes a killer edit of Final Edition's "I Can Do It Anyway" as used for A-Trak and Armand's "aNYway". 8 tracks over double vinyl from Glenview Records. Recommended.

    Piccadilly Records Review:

    Glenview Records follows up their Onur Engin album with this full length from Spanish edit sensation Rayko (from Gran Canaria says our Spanish edit customer Silvestre). Spread over two fat sides of wax (or one CD) he reworks classic disco, boogie and funk tracks from Womack & Womack, Joe Coleman, D-Train, Bill House, Final Edition, KID and more. A bassline fattened here, an effect added there, a loop cut and pasted over here... Hot disco edits from a man at the top of his game right now.
