Recognized by many including Red Bull Music Academy as the West Coast Jungle Ambassador, R.A.W. aka 6Blocc has been slipping his car out of the driveway to various L.A. warehouses, just like he has since the ’80s to unleash his musical arsenal. Jungle, dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass, hardcore techno, cumbia, hip-hop, footwork — his DJ bag proclaims a deep appreciation of varied musical styles he has incorporated into his high energy dj sets.
Some might argue that R.A.W. has been L.A.’s greatest DJ for three decades running. No one has spun music to L.A.’s underground more consistently, more deftly, with more versatility, and to more varied audiences. Long ago, he fused his hip-hop DJ battle techniques to the concept of the “musical journey” that many popular dance music DJs give lip service to but seldom deliver on.
