To say that rising prodigy Raiden has had a prolific start to the year would be an understatement. Having only just released his exquisite collaboration ‘Always Find You’ with K-pop superstar YURI (Girls Generation) to critical acclaim, this Sunday (February 25) saw the Korean icon perform at none other than the Closing Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games!
Performing alongside the world’s #1 DJ, Martin Garrix, who took to the stage moments afterwards, Raiden showcased his track ‘GLORY’ to thousands of onlookers inside the Olympic Stadium in PyeongChang, as well as the hundreds of millions watching the live broadcast from all corners of the globe.
Constructed with the innate precision fans have come to expect from Raiden, ‘GLORY’ was meticulously crafted for the Closing Ceremony and oozes with personality and energy across its 3-minute duration.
Fittingly, Raiden will be releasing his next record on Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS this Friday (March 2) – a collaboration with Dutch duo Dubvision, titled ‘Keep My Light On’. Debuted at Ultra Japan where they performed the track on stage together, the record has been getting some serious attention ever since.

Already off to an incredible start, 2018 is shaping up to be a mammoth year for Raiden. Confirmed to play at Nicky Romero’s annual Protocol Recordings Party at Miami Music Week, as well at Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary and a slew of other dates, you can expect to see a lot more from the Korean producer over the coming months, as he continues to win over fans worldwide with his impressive output.
