We asked one of our favorite DJs, Ryan Rasheed of Because The Night, to create a playlist for the blog. What he came up with has been our soundtrack for a few cozy nights in, but as the sun starts to shine a little longer and the last snow has fallen (fingers crossed!), we're looking forward to opening up our windows and turning up the volume on this piece.
Known by many as the long-standing keyboardist for Warp Record's Prefuse 73 and by others as a solo DJ and music producer, Rasheed's sound runs as deep as his resume. As a DJ he has worked for more than two decades, playing so many venues globally that he has literally lost count. When asked what his weirdest event has been - "definitely being the DJ for the White House Correspondents Dinner warming things up for Obama" - a position he has held for the past three years.
He is highly influenced by his car radio, lucid dreams, skate videos and his daughter Ruby.
