Being born in the early 60's meant that Dennis was exposed to the sound of Motown on the radio in his family home in Newcastle at an early age. As Dennis grew older, his musical horizons evolved, he loved the then new Philly sound with Salsoul and Disco becoming a firm favourite.

Over recent years Dennis has DJed at major events including the Gold Mine Room at SSW6 (Scottish Soul Weekender 6), a warm up DJ set for Soultions in Dumfries, getting a spot in the Modern Room at the Federation Brewery, as well as various other events around Scotland and the North East. Dennis has also worked as part of the DJ team at As You Like It in Jesmond.

In 2019 Dennis was part of the DJ team for North Sea Sounds DFDS ferry-ways working alongside Imagination and Odyssey.

Currently Dennis DJs at Allards in Tynemouth.

Dennis is happy to be part of SoulNet Radio and is looking forward to working with the rest of the team and helping to take the radio station forward.

All current shows are available on MixCloud under Dennis Raine.
