RAW Q (aka DJ BEAU) is one of NYC's original pioneers of Drum+Bass and electronic music. As a born and raised native of NYC's East Village, BEAU has been DJing underground clubs and raves in NYC, the USA and Puerto Rico for over 13 years and counting. His resumé as a DJ/producer is a veritable timeline of many of the most significant parties and events of the NYC/US electronic music culture. Whether it's from his beginnings as an original LIQUID SKY and SATELLITE RECORDS selector (circa '95), to his current status as one of DJ ZINC's 'BINGO ALLSTARS,' a selected tag-team partner of DJ DB at the highly-acclaimed 'SECRET NIGHT OF SCIENCE' monthly parties at club LOVE, BEAU has been a truly devoted contributor to underground electronic music and rave culture since the early days.
