DJ Alan Raw

I am a BBC Music DJ, on the radio every Saturday night. With over 2000 live sessions on the shows I present so far. Beyond the BBC, I am lucky enough to be supported by InMusic to use the excellent DENON DJ equipment. I play mainly new unsigned and under the radar music, but originally I was a Dance Music DJ, playing Electronica, Hip Hop, World Music & Dub at Jams like Vapor Festival. I got into club DJing with weekly Dub Reggae nights at Rumors and branched out when I got the Lounge residency at the historic Welly Club Hull, playing anything new that I wanted to champion. I started promoting and booking in other DJ’s. I’ve worked with Sash, Slipmat and many others. I then started DJing on BBC Radio with BBC Raw Talent 2002 which became the BBC Introducing shows in Humberside & West Yorkshire. 17 years on BBC radio still hasn’t cured me of the DJ bug. Over the last few years, I’ve DJed at events like Leeds Festival and at new music clubs like 360club Leeds, where I now DJ & co-promote a night called #360RAW. I still have an uncontrollable need to find creative stuff that’s really good and tell everybody else to check it out. Yeah I know there are masses to choose from, but that’s the point. I can help you narrow it down and pick out the absolute belters. There’s always going to be a fair bit of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire based content, as I’m based here, but in every set expect gems from the rest of the planet too. On 25th July 2018, I was the first DJ to ever play the 3000 capacity Bonus Arena,  thanks again to BBC Introducing for that. I also present the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival, having initiated the stage 14 years ago. My multi-award-winning shows are on every Saturday night 8 – 10 UK time on BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio HumbersideListen to my latest shows & podcasts on BBC Sounds:
