Now being considered as one of the pioneers of afro house, Raoul Konan N'Dah Kouassi's story depicts a series of events and bold decisions that led him to become Mr. Raoul K.
After having left the Ivory Coast and 26 of his siblings, Raoul first set foot on German soil with his twin brother in 1992 and chose Hamburg to be his new home. His biggest dream at the time was to become a professional soccer player, and he made it to the professional level in Germany, but a severe knee injury forced him to let go of that dream and was about to turn his life around, once more.
Hamburg is also where he first got in touch with the aesthetic vibe of house & techno music that was played at the local clubs, after which he was immediately sold: these nightly experiences resulted in a steep turn in his career. In 1999, Raoul moved to Lubeck, where he would work as a carpenter during the day and develop and refine his musical skills at night. After years of taking double shifts and setting aside every hard-earned penny, he finally had enough money to build his own studio. As a true perfectionist, Mr. Raoul K. was finally ready to share his music with the world. Raoul's vision was to unite traditional African instruments with modern electronic sounds, which laid a foundation to a new genre that is now considered to be a cornerstone of electronic music: afro house.
