Dise Lord Ra, was born Kwesi MarQuis DaVe. Though his was born in the NW section of Washington DC, Ra has been traveling since birth. From living in the depths of Germany to the hoods of DC, Dise has heavy influence from a plethora of genres.

His sounds range from go-go to house music and even down to rave. While in Europe, his ears were engaged with techno-trap, techno and dub step, forming the highest level of what Dise simply calls "T R I P P Y". His late night studies of high philosophy mixed with the grungy tension of everyday life create the perfect back drop for his lyrical portraits.
