Raw Q aka DJ Beau is one of NYC’s original Drum ‘n Bass djs for 12 years and counting. He began producing back in ‘96 with DJ Ani (formerly of Deee-Lite) for DJ Soulslinger’s Liquid Sky Music Label. In 2003 DJ Beau evolved into Raw Q. In the last few years Raw Q has released music on prestigious labels such as Zinc’s Bingo Recordings, Grid Recordings and will soon be releasing ‘Caspian Moon’ on Aaron Jay’s new label Influence Records. His tracks have earned support from DnB’s most respected DJs and artists including LTJ Bukem, Zinc, Roni Size, Flight, Randall, Fabio, Bryan Gee, Bailey, Krust, Marky, Marcus Intalex, L Double and many more. His track ‘Vital Soul’ took the DnB world by storm when it first appeared on dubplate and managed to reach 11th place in the BBC’s Global Dance Charts in 2004. Raw Q continues to DJ as a resident of Direct Drive and as a frequent guest DJ and supporter of Camouflage and other quality NYC DnB parties.
