DJ Alan Raw

I am a BBC Music DJ, on the radio every Saturday night. With over 2000 live sessions on the shows I presents so far. Beyond the BBC, I am lucky enough to be supported by InMusic and 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 Acid House at raves n Yorkshire and Hip Hop at Jams like Vapor Festival. I got into club DJing with weekly rock nights and Reggae nights with a regular slot at Rumors nightclub. Later I got the Lounge at Welly Club 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 BBC Introducing shows in Humberside & West Yorkshire. Since then I’ve DJ’d at events like Leeds Festival and at new music nights like 360club Leeds, which I still do as #360RAW. 16 years on BBC radio still hasn’t cured me of the DJ bug.  I still have an uncontrollable need to find creative stuff that’s really good and tell everybody else to check it out too. Yeah I know there’s 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 in Hull, 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 Bonus Arena Hull,  thanks again to BBC Introducing. I also present the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival, having initiated the stage 13 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 on the BBCiplayer:
