Raw Stream Brings Hip-Hop From The Stage To Your Couch
Hip-hop is rapidly growing in the music scene with new artists appearing on the radar left and right. Raw Stream gives these artists a platform to perform their music in a live setting and to reach an audience of hip-hop devotees.
Recorded in Offstream Studio located in Burbank, CA, Raw Stream “brings the stage to your couch” with three to four artists performing each session. The show now has over 50 artists under its belt after two full seasons featuring 8 episodes each.
The show’s energy doesn’t stop with the artists, however. The dynamic duo consisting of rapper and audio engineer Mark W. and athlete, coach, and DJ Ian SWIVVL Jennings is also responsible for hosting and curating Raw Stream.
Though the show has now amassed a following of over 300 supporters with view counts reaching almost as high as 5,000 for some episodes, the continuation of the project was not always the plan.
Upon reaching out to Traklife for help with audio and visual components, Mark W. and Traklife founder Ervin Cordero decided to make the project a regular series. Mark W. and DJ Swivll decided on the name Raw Stream, and the series has grown ever since.
