Grandson of an African American Baptist preacher born in Jim Crow Mississippi, Dj Raedawn got the Callin to rip stages since the age of 4. Besides being a seasoned DMC vet and mixtape maestro to many, he developed the Turntablist Transcription Methodology with his chums Ethan Imboden and Battlesounds' creator John Carluccio. This unique notation system for electronic/dj music has been developed into software, used in music courses around the world and has been featured by the likes of Time, CNN, Blackbook, XLR8R...yatayatayata. At Skratchcon 2000, Q-bert knighted him with the Dj Q-bert SkratchMaster Award from the Global Skratch foundation. Far from a scratch nerd, Raedawns assaulted stages and dancefloors from the legendary Apollo Theatre to the most dank techno til 10 in the morn coke den party in Berlin. Under the name Crunc Tesla, he has collaborated with artists such as Tes, dDamage, Airborn Audio and Angelbert Metoyer. Raedawn, also known as Jordie Laforge, has a number of alias groups as well as being the founder of the dynamic multimedia label called Luv Technologies. Having opened for a wide spectrum of artists, from Stereolab to Dizzee Rascal to the mythical Red Alert (I wont even mention Dead Prez & a Bright Eyes US trek), Raedawn's performances have defied genre and moved generations of audiences. The lovable lionheart ATLien has been hiding out in a post modern post production chamber somewhere in East Williamsburg Brooklyn. quote.
