Ray Volpe’s intergalactic planetary smash single and the most played track at EDC Las Vegas, “Laserbeam,” has finally been blasted out worldwide via Disciple Records.

Volpe strikes out with a track that’s a true shock to the system, packing booming bass and acidic squelches contrasting with an underlying calm that makes for the perfect festival season blockbuster.

It’s always good to have the support of friends and in Ray’s case, they’ve come through big time supporting “Laserbeam” and helping to make it a true sensation. A who’s who of DJ talent have locked and loaded the track into their sets, from the likes of Illenium, Timmy Trumpet, Excision, Subtronics, 4B, Valentino Khan, DJ Diesel, Seven Lions, Nitti Gritti, Wuki, NGHTMRE, Big Gigantic, ARMNHMR, Riot Ren, Kompany, SAYMYNAME, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Blanke, Mitis, Good Times Ahead and Moore Kismet, among others.

Speaking of Excision, the artist’s massive February 2022 Thunderdome event at the Tacoma Dome proved to be a pivotal moment for Ray (who was on the bill) and a launching point for “Laserbeam.”

“Thunderdome was actually the viral origin of “Laserbeam,” Ray says. “It started with an email to Excision updating him with new unreleased music to play at shows. I mentioned in the email how “Laserbeam” would be cool to play with lasers in his high-production sets with crazy rigs. After my set at Thunderdome where I was support for Excision, I went to the crowd to watch Excision perform & suddenly heard the beginning of “Laserbeam.” The reaction from the fans in the venue as the song dropped was loud & clear. Needless to say, I was also freaking out. I filmed the whole thing & posted it the next day on social media, which went viral, currently tallying over 800,000 views on my own platforms; Excision, Illenium, Black Tiger Sex Machine, & many others have posted as well since then, accumulating a total of over 10,000,000 views today. I thought to myself that this is the craziest thing ever and that it couldn’t possibly get any better.”

Can it get better, Ray? “Laserbeam” is only the beginning.
