At a young age Dj Artistic Raw was already inspired by music. When he was only eight years old he was already experimenting a lot with cassette decks by playing a track faster, slower and in reverse. Everything you could possibly do with a cassette, he's already done. He loved the fact that he had control over the music that was playing.
The years after that he listened a lot to music that he bought or got from friends. At an age of twelve Artistic Raw began to remix music.
