With the beat-mixed Ray's House, MTV VJ Ray Munns makes his debut as a DJ—and make no mistake, this guy is not fooling around. Seamlessly mixed, Munns proves himself to be a deft DJ, one who has apparently been seriously studying the turntable wizardry of such international jocks as Danny Tenaglia, Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, and Sasha & Digweed. Opening with the No. 1 U.K. smash, "Touch Me" by Rui da Silva Featuring Cassandra, Ray's House intertwines progressive house and trance beats. By incorporating many chart-topping dancefloor hits into the mix—"Silence" by Delerium Featuring Sarah McLachlan, Dido's "Here With You," Darude's "Sandstorm," "Castles in the Sky" by Ian Van Dahl Featuring Marsha—Munns has created a compilation primed for the club-savvy mainstream market. But the inclusion of tracks like Kosheen's "Hide You" and Azzido Da Bass' "Doom's Night" is proof positive that he hasn't forgotten about the underground—that place where those other tracks got their start.—MP
