Ray Volpe relinquishes one of the year’s most-anticipated IDs— stream ‘Laserbeam’

It was one of the most played tracks at EDC Las Vegas 2022 and it garnered support from a long line of artists including Excision, ILLENIUM, Subtronics, MitiS, Moore Kismet, DJ Diesel, 4B, NGHTMRE, and ARMNHMR, among others. It even went viral on TikTok, all before its official release.

Ray Volpe has long been sitting on what might be the hottest ID in bass music, if not all of dance/electronic music—at least in 2022—but at long last, “Laserbeam” is here. The track has roots in Excision’s show at Virginia’s Hampton Coliseum. Prior to the show, Volpe had sent him what we now know to be “Laserbeam,” telling Excision that “it’d work well with lasers.” Excision proceeded to play out the track in sync with what appeared to be thousands of lasers. From there, “Laserbeam” took off, going on to be potentially the most-played track at EDC Las Vegas this May before making its way to digital streaming platforms courtesy of Disciple.

Volpe is in the midst of the run to his new EP, slated to release later this year. “Laserbeam” is the project’s sophomore single and answers May’s “Growing Wild” featuring Myah Marie. Beyond recently playing Red Rocks for the first time (in support of Sullivan King), Volpe is also set to play a bevy of festivals this summer, including ILLfest in Texas, Bass Canyon—where he’ll be going back-to-back with Blanke—and of course, Excision’s Lost Lands. Stream “Laserbeam” below.
