Producer, DJ and composer Raz Mesinai (aka Badawi/Sub Dub) is one of the most respected figures in the underground experimental Dub and contemporary music scenes in New York City dating back to the early 90's. He started his obsession with electronic instruments at the age of 10 using answering machine tape recorders, one turntable and a drum machine and at 11 discovered his first Dub record, Burning Spear's Garvey's Ghost, which sparked his interest in experimental studio techniques. After interning in several recording and mastering studios as a teenager Mesinai started the seminal dub duo Sub Dub and release two EP's, Dawazangpo and Babylon Unite.
Since then Mesinai has released over a dozen albums, 12"s and EP's on such diverse labels as the legendary dub, ska and hardcore label ROIR, John Zorn's label Tzadik, SkullDisco, Instinct, Ostgut Nun, Asphodel, the Agriculture, Island Records and recently on his own label, The Index, co-run with Dub War's DJ Dave Q. His music has been remixed by such artists as Shackleton, Kode9, Machinedrum, Headhunter (aka Addison Groove), CardoPusher and Meat Beat Manifesto among others.
Mesinai's contemporary compositions have been performed throughout Europe and the US at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Etna Fest Catania and The Spanish Royal Ballet, with such performers and ensembles as the Kronos Quartet and Maya Beiser, and he has performed his own music live at such festivals as Unsound Festival, Elevate, Etna Festival and Mutek among many others.
Mesinai has also scored for numerous films and his music can be heard in films by such directors as Ridley Scott, Jonathan Demme and Darren Aronofsky.
