Some subjects are simply impossible to change externally, but can only be changed within ourselves.

Raz began experimenting with cassettes and sampling at the age of 10, and at 14, was discovered by legendary musician Juma Sultan, a multi instrumentalist who collaborated with Jimi Hendrix and worked closely with the early Fairlight CMI Sampler.
