CRaymak’s collaboration with Neon Dreams, titled ‘Play with Fire’ resulted in his first award by winning the East Coast Music Association Award in 2018 for Dance Recording of the Year. The record, as a part of his debut EP ‘Abstraction’ with Circus Records, was a kaleidoscope of the sounds that define CRaymak.

Moving within the borders of bass music his sound is first and foremost heavy, it is dynamic and always energetic. It’s no surprise he’s been called upon by the likes of Matthew Koma, Flux Pavilion, Excision, Mother Mother and many more.
