DJ Raz was a hugely popular DJ in Winnipeg’s underground scene in the 90s. He hosted a radio show on 91.1 FM, playing the latest techno, trance, and house every Friday night.
For young teenagers like me who lived outside the city, were too young to drive, and still many years away from getting high speed internet, the best (only?) way to discover new music was to scan the FM dial. His radio show is where I first heard local electronic music, and talk of all these crazy parties that were happening in Winnipeg.
I’m 99% sure that this is the first local DJ mix I ever bought. It is solid start to finish, contains a ton of classic tunes, and remains a favourite to this day.
