DJ Raff's creative sampling and ability to seamlessly blend hypnotic beats with traditional Chilean and Latin sounds have earned him a place among Latin America's most highly regarded DJs and producers. From beat-making at 12 years old to being an architect of the flourishing Chilean Hip Hop scene, despite the success his hip-hop productions, DJ Raff wanted to convey a message without the need for lyrics and so his journey into producing electronic music began in the early 2000's. Over the years he has played his distinct sounds at events such as Sonar, Mutek, Lolapalooza, mentored at RBMA Bass Academy in Chile and had his 'Latino & Proud' track used as the theme tune on Comedy Central's award winning series 'Broad City' and much more.
DJ Raff's 'Resistencia EP' won strong support by tastemakers like Tom Ravenscroft on BBC 6 Music who called it "…his best record ever" and as well as interviewing DJ Raff he also featured a guest mix on his show. Further support included Worldwide FM as 'Resistencia' was selected as one of 'This Week's Essential Tracks' and featured in Resident Advisor's 'New Tracks'.
Dj Raff has kept busy since then making appearances or guest mixing on Soho Radio, Red Bull Radio, Le Mellotron and Reprezent. A 15 date Latin America 'Resistencia' tour ensued taking in Lollapalooza (Chile) where he played before the remarkable Nicola Cruz (who has listed DJ Raff's music as an influence in the formation of his own outlook). Back in the UK he was invited to play The Great Escape as well as a series of events performing one off experiments in sound and collaborations with fine artists at Casa Festival.
