DJ / Remixer / Producer

JUNIOR K (Riffs & Rays)

Having been at the forefront of dance music for over twenty years, Junior K kick-started his illustrious career, joining legendary dance group N-Trance in the late 90s, as their official member and tour DJ.

After years on the road, working on and helping promote a string of their top 10 hits, including club staple Set You Free and Forever, Junior decided it was time to move on, forming remix and production team Riffs & Rays with fellow producer Phil Pendlebury.

Becoming a highly respected commodity, Junior inked a deal with record label All Around The World in 2005, with their first production!

Later that year Riffs & Rays struck gold with their massive production of Inaya Day’s UK Top 10 Smash, Nasty Girl, which propelled them into the limelight delivering the year’s Club and Chart Anthem.  To date the track is still only the SECOND RECORD IN UK HISTORY TO BE PLAYED TWICE IN A ROW ON NATIONAL RADIO 1. The track was lauded as Pete Tongue’s Essential Tune of the Week and eventually hit the UK Top 10 Singles Chart at no.9!!

Riffs & Rays became hot property with countless record labels, artists and producers demanding the guys work on their projects.  So highly sought after that, while producing Madonna’s hugely successful, Confessions on a Dance Floor album, Stuart Price still found time to commission them to remix his top 10 single, Jaques Ur Body.

Since then Junior has masterminded a string of memorable club hits, having produced and remixed for artists including: MICHAEL JACKSON, AKON, LADY GAGA, MARY J BLIGE & CHAKA KHAN, THE SATURDAYS, SHONTELLE, GIRLS CAN’T CATCH, ULTRA NATE, DANNI MINOGUE, MASTERS AT WORK to name a few!!
