Rawzeal literally means “raw passion.” It’s also a mentality that Charlie Salazar has kept with him throughout his career as an artist. A junior at Boston University, Salazar works day-in and day-out to balance the work that comes with being an engineering student and the diligence required of an up-and-coming artist.
Salazar was born in Venezuela but was raised in Miami, FL, and has always had music in his life. At 11, he started a band with friends, and continued to jam with others until the end of high school.

Around this time is when Salazar got interested in producing. He was drawn to the idea of creating all the elements in an original track.
Since then, Salazar has come into his own as an electronic music producer. As Rawzeal, he combines elements of acoustic and electronic sounds that’s reminiscent of artists such as Mura Masa, Flume, and Odesza, all whom Salazar looks up to.
Rawzeal has released two EPs so far. The most recent EP, Archetype, was released just six months ago and is a unique collection of chillwave-esque tracks sprinkled with heavy bass lines. Rawzeal has done a nice job combining more acoustic elements into the electronic sound on this EP.
One track in particular on Archetype, “Give It All Away,” starts out as a typical EDM-like track with a nice build and drop. However about a minute-and-a-half into the song, Rawzeal throws in a surprising guitar riff, which exposes the captivating product that results when EDM elements are combined with the classic sound of an electric guitar.
Wherever Rawzeal might take Salazar in the future, the passion he has as an individual and artist remains at the center of his creativity and ability to keep discovering and pursuing.
