Electrical Tape - Dj Ragz - Some Inside to why Im grinding


Ok So ive been really busy lately.  Feeling reinvented I decided to put together a Mix Cd.  This cd has some rare, exclusive, older, newer type stuff on it.  I was all over the place on it, but it kinda fit how ive been feeling about life.  I feel like I have opened up so much more to new ideas and thoughts and I have so many people to thank for that.  Most importantly I have my Mom to thank who recently passed.  Once I got beyond the whole struggle of the thought of a loved one passing and realized that it was a good thing because she was struggling,  it was time to revisit some things that I kind of let drift off.  There were 2 things that I let just roll away without a driver and that was my battling and my mix cds....................... Looks like Ive picked back up noth things and realized that Im not done.  Im not doing it to be the best or get props, Im just doing what I love and enjoying every minute of it.  I dont know, I feel like I am seeing things much more clear these days.  Music=Life for me, so yes, I will be that 85 year old dj in a battle or making mixtapes and I will be proud to do so. 

Electrical tape will be available on the 25th of this month.  They will be sold by itself or with a Tee Shirt so get at me if your interested.  ragz@jazz-addixx.com

Want to give an extra special shout out to the Jazz Addixx and Sinister Sound Set for being there for me through some pretty dark times.

Dj Ragz comes out with the victory

O Ok so I stepped away from the battle scene other than judging. Im not really sure why I stopped but 2005 was my last battle at the Scion battle where I took runner up and lost to the great Dj Idee. Anyways, on June 10th I entered a Dj Battle ran by Coast2Coastmixtapes.com. I had to go three rounds against Dj AsOne who I have major respect for. Dj AsOne teaches at the beatrefindery.com as well. I ended up winning in a close battle and I am headed to Miami on labor day weekend to complete for the National Championship. Im really blessed that I had the opportunity to comeback and I am very greatful that I had so many people urging me to comeback. Big ups to Dj AsOne and my friends for the support!

Ummmm yeah about The EP I had been working on.....

Ok So I had an EP that I was working on and I have some really great guest artists on it. I have since changed what equipment that I am working with and have kinda changed direction on the sound of the EP so I have decided to slowly leak out the songs from time to time for free. Keep checking at djragz.com for the free downloads. This first song from the EP that I did will be released tonight. With the upcoming release of the Jazz Addixx LP I think its best just to give out some music as well.

Airman Ragz Reports as ordered!

Airman Dj Ragz USAF 1992 - 1996. On some non-musical info, yes I did serve in the US Air Force. When I first joined the Air Force it was not for my country. I was headed in the wrong direction and I needed some more discipline, guidance and an income. My parents were great parents but I was beyond stubborn and just had to figure out life on my own. I had a lack of respect for society and did not understand really how life worked. I was terrible at school, in fact so terrible that I had to get my diploma at a night school. I knew I needed change. When I got to basic training I had a really tough time with it because of all the bad decisions I was making in High School. I didnt think I was going to make it and there were several nights of crying under the covers when it was bed time. When I graduated basic training I got to text school as a Financial Services Specialist. This was a whole new challenge because we had freedom and I was in school to learn a trade (accounting), something that I was very very bad at. Luckily I concentrated 100% and studied more than anyone else in my graduating class. I knew that if I messed up my opportunity in the Air Force I would be faced with a grim outlook mentally. I had to do this so I pushed through and graduated. My first assignment was a 15 month tour in Lajes Field, Azores, which is a group of islands 800 miles off the coast of portugal. When I got to this job I really struggled because my lack of caring about learning and this really made it difficult. I took was I learned in text school and applied it and once I started focusing and concentrating in my field I started to stop thinking about myself so much and I started to excel. Around the same time I started to see how life worked and how much the Air Force taught me. During this time, I started to see what our country is about. Our country is about opportunity and creating destiny. Once I realized this, I fell in love with my country and yes, I would have put it on the line for my country. Our country is a great nation. Don't get me wrong, Ive been to Germany, Italy, Spain and I love those areas, its no knock to other countries. I just love where Im from and I want to thank the Military and the great people in the Military today who put it on the line for us everyday. Weather your a bean counter or on the front lines, I love what you do! I respect you. One Love, Airman Ragz

Real Talk 2012

Ok so here I am and its 2012 and OOOOOO how time flies! I Have just accepted a job with beatrefinery.com in the Herndon VA area which is nice because its close to home. I will be teaching beginner/intermediate/advacne levels of mixing and scratching. I am so honored to be a part of this music school and I am excited to teach others what it is that I am so geeked about. To be honest, I will never be at the level I want to be at and I am still learning on the daily. So come on out if your trying to get on the decks and we will learn together. 2012 started out to be a tough year and it still has its challenges but Ive realized that this music stuff has kept me strong. So for me to be getting back out there from a little hiatus is great! Much love to all those out there who have had my back! Im back!!!! Your gonna hear why I say I am back when the new Jazz Addixx LP drops!
