RAWS is an intimate party held in a small club in Tokyo, where underground beatheads unite. After a live performance by a jazz band, which gets recorded, the beatmakers have an hour to chop up the freshly recorded sample, flip it and make a beat right on the spot. Grown Kids Radio and Chicago’s very own cuerators.com were proud to present RAWS:CHICAGO, the first of two US installments of the RAWS concept.
Band: JUNIUS PAUL TRIO
Beatheads: Raj Mahal, Radius, Phraim, Cōs
DJs: B Majic, King Hippo, NewLife

Damn, what a night at Kingdom Nightclub in Austin, Texas during the cusp between SXSW interactive and music 2014!
Collaborators included DJ Qbert’s label, Thud Rumble, along with Rox Collection, and the music production institute known as Dubspot. Ca$h4gold (Lou Lou of Thievery Corporation & MS. G) opened the night and B Majic followed their lead. J Boogie & Chicken George joined forces and warmed up the floor with house and midtempo grooves. Jo Def represented LA’s up and coming label, Soulection and shook things up as the night progressed. The crowd grew rowdy as 2 x DMC champion, DJ Shiftee confidently exhibited his turntablism skills, just in time for DJ Qbert. The crowd intensely observed the 3 x DMC champion, as he meticulously displayed his craft. Zuzuka Poderosa & Nego Mozambique closed the night and kept the energy level high with their signature Carioca Bass. Vibes were on point.
