Producer

NYC native, Raw Q (aka Dj Beau) has been a dedicated fixture in the North American Drum & Bass movement since 1995. From his roots as one of the founders of Camouflage, an original Jungle Sky, NASA, and Konkrete Jungle O.G., one of Dj Zinc's 'Bingo All-Stars', and current member of the Intrigue Music crew and as resident dj at NYC's premiere dnb events Driven and Natural Selection.
