Musician, Producer, Performer, Innovator, Trainer… all these words describe Rishabh Rajan, but you've got to watch and listen to his mashups to really appreciate him.
Rishabh uses the latest tech, including the Ableton Push and the (as yet unreleased in US or Europe) Korg Miku Stomp guitar pedal, to bring a different take to a selection of songs from Porter Robinson's 2014 release, Worlds.
We asked Rishabh about the Mashup, the gear he used and his inspiration. In his own words, Rishabh said:
“The main inspiration for this mashup is Porter Robinson's album, Worlds. Personally it's my favorite album of this year. I'd been working on the mashup for about a month, but when I got the Miku Stomp I figured it would work really well with this mashup as Porter Robinson himself used a vocaloid voice for a couple of the tunes in his album.
“For someone who understands Japanese, the Miku Stomp phrases I created are going to sound like gibberish because I used the random mode for pretty much all the parts but for someone who doesn't understand Japanese (like me) it creates an aesthetic which is quite novel and works pretty well if I may say so myself. The whole anime world is quite fascinating to me so having the ability to create something that even remotely sounds similar is quite exciting.”
