Funky, alternative EDM that’s all about taking it easy to a cheeky dance beat.

Making a huge buzz on the US scene Craymo releases his new single Take It Slow (Gotta Say Hey).

Described as combining guitar driven modern rock with Dance to bring forth a unique Pop/Punk sound that cannot be explained. An ode to enjoying every precious moment that life has to offer. Dedicated to the memory of his late father who often used the phase and serves as a reminder to slow down and live in the moment.

The video filmed entirely on IPhones and GoPro cameras the songs theme is captured in scenes of slow cruising on quiet sunny streets and peaceful musings by the shore.

Working under the name Craymo, a nickname given to him whilst working as a DJ at a radio station in upstate New York Craig Stephen Raymo’s music has already been licensed for films and games in the short time it has been available, as well as winning a number of awards.

In 2017 his singles Be Myself and One Love, One World (We Are One) won the best video awards at the World Music Contest songs that promote anti-bullying, diversity, world peace, tolerance and human rights and used as a learning aid to help teach children in Pang Liu village in China to speak English.

Influenced by musicians such as The Cars, David Bowie, George Michael and Michael Jackson, he’s all about rocking guitars, interesting harmonies with a little Glam and R&B all thrown into a groove that you can dance to.

This latest single has already taken the number one spot on the APC Euro Indie Music top 200 charts.
