Norman Doray talks Tell The World, Rediscovering His Sound & Collaboration (Ep.072)
It sounds gimmicky, but I do remember the first time I heard a Norman Doray track. I was late to the crowd but it was ‘Stronger’ released on Size Records with Arno Cost. There was a new fresh kind of energy in that release, a discoy groove and atmosphere which to me didn’t exist in the scene at the time.
Since then, the journey hasn’t been a simple one for Norman Doray; moving country, taking a break, rediscovering his sound - all many parts which have influenced and made the Norman Doray which we know and love today.
In today’s podcast, we are chatting to Norman and covering his journey, the causation of why he needed to take a break but he also breaks down the story of some of his tracks including ‘Tell The World’ released on Cr2 Records. There are also some nuggets in this episode around crafting streaming edits.
