At age 22, he has over 25 releases and has performed in cities like Toronto- Canada, Paterson-New Jersey, Phoenix-Arizona, Lubbock-Texas and soon will be touring overseas.
Raoul Zerna started his musical journey at age 14 when he got his big break at a local radio station. He had only been dj’ing for about 4 months and entered the radio station’ DJ contest where he took 2nd place, over 150 contestants had entered nation wide. Not only was the contest live on the air, but also was broadcasted live from “THE DOME” (LAs Premier nightclub) where 2500 people were witnessing the competition. Here is where he met Richard Humpty Vission, David Alvarado, Tony B!,and his mentor AJ Mora. From age 14 to this date Raoul Zerna has paid his dues as a DJ and prominent producer.
Zerna’ unique style cannot go on without being noticed. He has produced hard pounding techno for Contaminated music, Chicago based label owned by Bad Boy Bill, also for Strictly Hype Recordings, Abstract Music, Soul Phusion Records, Reload Records in Belgium, R – Mania Records in France, Uptempo music and Blanco y Negro records in Spain, Waxworks Records, and A Squared Music. His producing talents have attracted major labels and licensing deals. His recent dance floor singles, Love Sequences and The Hype were used on Mixer magazine’ compilation mixed by Scott Hardkiss and were also featured on MTVs hit show The Blame Game.
Raoul Zerna does not only draw people from the underground rave circuit, but to any individual that likes to sweat on the dance floor. Producing techno, tech-house, and funky-disco grooves for many labels worldwide make this young “under age civilian” producer a hot item for days to come. “When I do a show, I love to see different cultures dance and sweat to my music, that proves to me that I have done my job”.
