Ralphy Grey “Turn off the Lights”


Blogs are already buzzing about Ralphy Grey’s music, labeling it a source of happiness and positive vibes. He’s celebrated as the “Master of Uplifting” with infectious melodies. Join Ralphy Grey on his musical journey and let the energy of his music sweep you away.

But the story of Ralphy Grey starts much earlier.

Born into a musical family in former East Germany, Ralphy Grey immersed himself in Rock and Pop music from an early age. Learning guitar, piano, and drums as a child, he also began recording his school bands with a cassette recorder. As a student, he supplemented his income as a DJ. With scarce access to records in East Germany, he recorded his favorite music from the radio onto tapes every night. Using bounce technique, he created his own mixes with a cassette recorder and a reel-to-reel tape deck.

When his school friend acquired a synthesizer from the West, Ralphy was hooked, and they formed their first band. Ralphy picked up the bass guitar. Later, he studied music in Leipzig and Berlin. Dissatisfied with the sound other studios gave his band’s recordings, he started producing more on his own.

In 2015, Ralphy Grey opened his first studio in the legendary Funkhaus der DDR in Berlin’s Nalepastraße. His Mission Control Studio changed locations multiple times, and he produced for various national and international artists. In 2020, a Hamburg publisher approached him to produce Synthwave music, sparking the birth of his solo project. His debut album, “Neon Journey,” felt too retro, leading him to experiment with a new mix: “contemporary Retro Electro House Pop.” The first songs in this direction, “Halloween is back” feat. Lucia Burana and “Release the Beast” featuring Sandy Sage, are available on all streaming platforms. In 2023, Ralphy Grey gained thousands of new listeners, with more new songs set for release this year.

“When I produce music and write my own songs, I seek that moment that lifts me off my chair, making me dance in the studio. A good song emerges when the groove grabs me, and the powerful bassline doesn’t let go. I aim to reach people with my powerful beats, spread positive vibes, and deliver catchy tunes. Music is the language everyone understands.” In this spirit, Ralphy Grey wants to spread passion, energy, motivation, and positive vibes. Music blogs are already celebrating him as the “Master of Uplifting” with infectious melodies.

In the studio, Ralphy Grey prefers working with analog synthesizers and other equipment. “These old instruments simply offer me more inspiration and have a more emotional sound.”
