Raziki Slice is the Collaborative effort between Dylan Kirkpatrick and the small bird that lives under his hat. In fall of 2011, Dylan “DJ DK” Kirkpatrick joined his college campus radio station, KMNR, and started to experiment with electronic music mixing. After receiving his first controller for Christmas, Dylan began to make a name for himself in the station with his Electro and Progressive-house radio show “Legitimately Serious DJ’ing”, eventually elevating him to headline status at the local raves. Three years after, Dylan met Raziki, a young bird that had an ear for Ghetto-House, Future Bass, and Juke.
Dylan and Raziki teamed up to form “Raziki Slice”. They currently co-host “Keepin’ It On The DL” with DJ The Palace, a show that features artists from across North America. Now Raziki Slice is leaving the Midwest for the first time, and coming to Toronto for Anime North!
