Unit Of Resistance is a collaboration between a handful of NYC musicians (laying down tracks of protest in 2004) and a selection of international DJ’s and mixers interpreting these tracks two years later. After over a year of international touring Raz found a handful of DJ’s/Musicians to take the music created that one fateful day and to create their own unique tracks. Raz set up a sophisticated web of information via the internet to allow the mixers access to prima material and to do with it as they wished. Perhaps the end result is conspiratorial music raising a lone flag or perhaps it is many different flags being raised jointly. Power to the people.
Along with DJ Spooky, DJ Olive, Soulslinger & Wordsound I Powa, Raz is considered an integral member of NYC’s Academy of Underground DJ’s and founded the influential duo Sub Dub with John Ward. Raz/Badawi has released more than 15 albums on ROIR, Asphodel, Instinct, BSI, & John Zorn’s Tzadik imprint.
