✈ Based in Brooklyn, NYC (US)
Based in Brooklyn, NYC, R&B/ Funk artist Relyae has been crafting spirit-enriching tracks since 2018, quickly gaining a reputation for his blissful melodies, uplifting grooves and addictive atmospheres. As a youth, his creative journey was sparked when his mother would soundtrack long dusty drives from his native home in Dallas, to the panhandle of Texas, filling the car with the sounds of Earth Wind & Fire, J Dilla, Azymuth, Chaka Khan, Marcos Valle & more.
On his latest offering ‘Flow State’ we see Relyae (pronounced Rel-Yay) channeling elements of golden sound into five undeniably engaging tracks. It’s a collection of mellow funk/R’n’B blends that puts him right next to musical peers like CARRTOONS, Tom Misch, Winston Surfshirt or Toro Y Moi. Following the online buzz he has been creating with effortless jams, Relyae delivers butter smooth tunes that touch themes like self-discovery, resilience and balance. The result of a gifted musician hitting their artistic stride, this is a perfect record to watch the world float past.
