Live in Tijuana With DJDS August 8, 2016
A look at DJDS new classic, "Live in Tijuana."
Son Raw is the French Connection Some people go on vacation to lie on a beach, I end up in Parisian basements mixing records. In between listening to Future’s Covered in Money at Versailles (your move, Kanye) and eating enough French food to give Action Bronson pause, I visited Rinse France co-founder Azamat B’s weekly […]
Uno, Dos, Cups….Adam Wray Brooklyn’s GODMODE continues to deliver the ruckus. Among its latest offerings: two tracks from 19 year-old Shamir Bailey, hailing from Las Vegas. Bailey’s got a million dollar voice – lithe, rangy, unique, and deceptively powerful. The first tune, “If It Wasn’t True,” is weapons-grade dance floor material. From steady kick to […]
Max Bell lives for the funk and dies for the funk. Seven is the name George Costanza ostensibly wanted for his first child. I don’t think L.A. based singer and producer Seven Davis Jr.’s parents were big fans of Mickey Mantle or Seinfeld, but I won’t rule it out until I can ask him and check […]
Oneman holds all the cards October 15, 2013
Son Raw does this for the culture. At some point this season, you will need a turn up mix for  when you’re having drinks, lest you leave the house sober: you should probably make it Oneman’s latest. Whereas London’s finest already effortlessly combined Garage, House, Grime and Dubstep into an all inclusive smorgasbord of UK […]
Son Raw is reminded of Michael Bolton, pre Lonely Island ironic comeback. I was going to go in on Disclosure’s new album but frankly I can’t even muster up the hatred to tear this thing apart. In truth, it’s far from a train wreck and I’m not sure if any of these tracks could even […]

Son Raw’s been wanting to write this for years Pre-recorded podcasts may have more polish and The Boiler Room might have the benefit of a live crowd, but tune for tune, there’s nowhere better to hear fresh urban electronic music than London institution Rinse.FM. Starting off as a Jungle pirate in the mid 90s, the […]
Son Raw holds the cards close to his chest. Here’s a dirty little secret about commercially released mixes: often enough, they’re far less interesting than what you can get online for free. While a good radio or Boiler Room set is spontaneous and full of unexpected moments spurred on by crowd and twitter reactions, a […]
It’s a little strange to play this song at 10:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning at the demise of July, but no one is paying for my trip to Plastic People nor my Molly. What’s wrong with you people? Is everyone not on dope. Here, we have Four Tet remixing his former boys from school, […]
Son Raw may break his no blunts before breakfast rule. Rough morning. What makes a musical genre? The typical answer would be a common set of musical signifiers and in a commercial sense, that description works quite well. If you’re selling a product, it helps if the customer gets what’s written on the tin. In […]
