EXCLUSIVE MIX #011: Dj Raggs

Super honored to have the mighty DJ Raggs (UK) joining the 11th installment of the Dataset Exclusive Mix Series. A musician, producer, journalist, promoter and one of the leading female DJ’s in dubstep, has collaborated with Coki, El B, Stinkahbell, Beezy, Dubfreq, Kinzy, Mutated Mindz, Sweetie Irie (Gorillaz) & Killa P. to name a few. She is also the Co-founder of Rude, a new south London bass night she runs with N-Type, and second in command to Sgt. Pokes co-ordinating dubstep’s infamous Croydub.

This is one bass heavy mix so we recommend that you don’t listen to it on laptop speakers, where bottom end frequencies will be lost, and check the questionnaire below to get to know more about the legendary DJ Raggs.


Real name:

What is the best thing about making/mixing tunes:
It keeps me off the streets…

My music creations directly reflect my passion, so that where I see music as a form of communication, I’m speaking my own words, so peoples’ reaction to my music is gratifying and satisfying… and sometimes disturbing…

Also, music is one of my deepest meditations: when I’m in studio; doing radio; playing sax or flute; playing to a club dance floor, nothing else is in my head but the music, which is a powerful state of mind to achieve!

Your favorite studio gear:
My new Selmer sax, my iMac; my Dyne Audio monitors, and my Technics 1200’s!

What artist inspires/motivates you:
Coki/David Rodigan

Life changing album:
Mavado – “Gangster For Life – The Symphony of David Brooks”

Production tip:
Remember to put some emotion in your music – there needs to be a melody, whether it’s in the dark hard B-line or a sweet vocal – something that will grab people’s attention – they’ll respond to the emotion in a tune, and that’s more than likely to be the part that earns you publishing points, because you can’t copyright a groove!

Something people don’t know about you:
I’m Irish and I speak 5 languages

Favorite food joint:
Mosimann’s – The Belfry (Belgravia, London UK)
