Music Style:  Uplifting trance and house       First Toucan Track:  Insane (2003)      Real Names:  Ryan Anthony

Ryan Anthony has been producing music for a long time from his small studio in Wales, United Kingdom under the name of Risey. He never limits himself to one genre of music and this sparks from his piano tuition at an early age. Credits include music produced for DVDs and documentaries such as Torn Between Two Worlds, Land Of Smiles by Paul Everett and many others. Ryan also likes to dabble with beat mixing in his spare time, and you can listen to past DJ work online at his website.

Risey's most popular tracks for Toucan have been the massive Memories Of Thailand, released in 2007 and remixed by Beat Doctor into a pumping house anthem, and the epic trance hits House Trancefusion and Insane.

Since writing music for Toucan, Risey has had commercial success producing a wide variety of styles under his own name Ryan Anthony for labels such as Alter Ego Records and Forte Records.

1st January 2015 A third year on top for Risey

Happy new year!  Thanks to everyone who supported us during 2014 by downloading and streaming our music releases.  We’ve counted up all the figures, and across all of our partner sites, Risey’s Memories Of Thailand – the Beat Doctor remix – has been our most downloaded track once again for the third year running!  This track, originally released back in 2007, has gone from strength to strength since being released on our Best Bytes compilation series.  The remainder of the chart is dominated by Psychadelik Pedestrian tracks, mainly from the 2013 Nocturnia album, but second place shows a surprise return to form for an old favourite chillout track, Night Beach.  Now 12 years old and notching up a fifth consecutive year on the chart by reaching its best position so far.  Check out the full download chart here.
