6Blocc / R.A.W.

R.A.W. aka 6BLOCC is known for his relentless techniques behind the wheels of steel. Getting his start back in 1985, this DJ is no amateur when it comes to tuntablizm. He was already battling local DJs in Los Angeles before the modern DJ culture was even created. By the mid-90's R.A.W. was traveling all over the world rocking crowds with his signature sound of urban jungle choonz and b-boy turntable tactics. In 1997, R.A.W. would go on to win the West L.A. Music Dj Battle judged by Dj Quik. "I remember Quick jumping like crazy when I was rocking doubles of J Magik's 'Your Sound'", says R.A.W. Shortly after this he was hired by a Japanese sound design company to produce 2 sample CD's: DRUM AND BASS AMMO and HIP HOP AMMO; both were sold with the Roland SP-808 in Japan. Also around this time he began to release his jungle productions on labels like Warner Bros., Thrive, Priority, Mictlan, Tonz of Drumz, N2O and by 2000 on labels like Thermal, Vortex, Sound Sphere where the sound was getting faster and rougher. In 2006, while working on some drum and bass material R.A.W. heard a bassline coming from the next door studio and asked, "what or who is this?" It was a mix by Youngsta from the UK, "the sound spoke to me and said follow me...and I did". R.A.W. continues, "I felt like I was ready to change my style and move onto a new sound...dubstep was exactly what I needed at the time. Drum and bass reached a point where I no longer felt like it was me and it was also getting too fast and void of the funk." By 2007 R.A.W reinvented himself as 6BLOCC and began releasing his new sound on labels like Lo Dubs, N2O, Tribe Steppaz UK, Bootshake UK, La Dubstep Nostra and the popular white label War Recordings. When he isn't on the road or in the air flying to various clubs and events throughout out the U.S. 6BLOCC is managing his digi-label DIGITAL 6 (available on www.digital-tunes.net - www.chemical-records.co.uk - www.addictech.com) and knocking out dubstep remixes and originals. Mr. Ghosty will be back from Toronto to supply the visuals for this night!!!!
