#BassMondays - RAKA (Interview + Dubplate 022)

Over the last few years, Namma Bengaluru has given the country some of the most talented music artists, there are many to name. One name that we've been watching for a while is, RAKA. Making a debut at a gig with no other than, Daddy G. [Massive Attack], there has been no looking back for this DJ/Producer, who also works as a Graphic Designer and an Illustrator. RAKA has made a number of tracks [in his own unique way], some sampled, some original and quite a few remixes, over the last couple of years, and news is he is soon going to be out with his EP! Let's find out more about what's this year is gong to be like for him.






1. Hey Raka, how are you doing? Glad to have you on board with us for #BassMondays. To begin with, tell us about how you started your music career as Raka, and how your taste/pick in music has evolved over time?
A - I’m doing well thanks! Thank you so much for having me on #BassMondays!

I started making music around 2007, with FL studio v.1, which was new to me (this was when v.8 was already out). But it wasn’t until 2012, that I was actually paid to make music, and around late 2015 that I started DJing as RAKA. 

As a beatmaker, my first paid gig was actually for a Kannada feature film, where I  got to expand my knowledge on producing background scores for movies, under the guidance of Charan Raj, incredible music producer/close friend, I was working with at the time. 
Interestingly, he put me on to Hudson Mohawke and Lunice’s TNGHT EP as a reference to the kind of music I should make after he heard my first set of beats (https://raksolidmusic.bandcamp.com/ - yeah..that name), and that’s when I was introduced to proper bass music. 

Growing up in a South Indian household, I listened to everything from the Bombay sisters, MS Subbalakshmi, old tamil OSTs from the 50s-90s, and then gradually moved on to  Beethoven, Mozart, Boney M, Michael Jackson to RD Burman, Bappi Lahiri, Kishore Kumar, and then on to 90s pop like Backstreet Boys, NSync and somewhere along the way, Metallica, Creed, Led Zeppelin, Guns and Roses, Cradle of Filth even…
It was only during my 1st PU/11th grade, that I was introduced to Hip-hop. 
Listening to Kanye West, Just Blaze,Timbaland, Neptunes, Danja instrumentals for countless hours that helped shape my sound and then moving to Diplo, M.I.A, Skrillex, TNGHT, DJ Fresh, Skepta, Wiley, Fixate, Joker, Wiley, Buraka Som Sistema, Ivy Lab, Om Unit, Alix Perez, and just so many more. Bass music is where I eventually found my home. 




2. You’ve made a bunch of tunes in the past, ranging from remixes, originals, [with some of them heavily and brilliantly sampled] etc. Any particular process that you follow to work on a tune, starting from the ideation to the production bit; that you would want to throw some light on?
A - The first thing I always lay down, is a skeleton beat. It all starts with a drum pattern, snares and plenty of percussion, which is a staple in most of my productions. I take my time when it comes to selecting my samples.  I’m always drawn towards sounds that are raw, organic, primal in nature. I usually start with a quick 16/32 bar loop without thinking too much about the idea, and then pair that with samples that may sound unusual or weird. Often times, I chop these samples and arrange them the way I hear them in my head. Post that, I layer the beat with a simple melody to complete the basic structure and then build on top of that. It usually takes me anywhere between 20 mins to an hour to lay down a basic idea, and build from there. Some of the best ideas have been happy accidents. :)




3. Word is that you’re releasing an EP soon, tell us a little about it.
A - YES! I had been sleeping on this for a while, and I feel like my sound has a solid identity to it. 

It’s more of a tribute to my city - Bangalore. It’s a mixture of the traditional with the contemporary. The main idea behind this was to capture the sound of the city, and it’s cultural diversity today. 

Coming sooner than you think. ;)



4. Also working as a Graphic Designer and an Illustrator, you make creatives for gigs and music collaborations, which are really on point, we feel. For the creative people out there, doing multiple jobs like these, share how you connect design and music?
A - I feel like I’m in a good place right now, where I’m getting to combine my love for art and music together on a daily basis. Designing gig posters allows me to do that. Both design and music, go hand in hand, and the latter strongly influences the art I make. I feel that gig posters need to represent the rapidly evolving culture here, and the art needs to align with that.  

Before I even begin translating my ideas on to the screen, I always listen to the artist that I’m creating the artwork for, and feed off the vibe of their music, just let the ideas flow from there. It’s a pretty spontaneous process. Most of the work I do stems from the first idea that comes off the top of my head.





5. What do you feel about the Bass scene in India and what are your thoughts on its evolution so far? Also, what’s your take on the global bass scene?
A - I absolutely love where the bass scene in India is headed. There are some incredible homegrown producers spread across the country that are making crazy eclectic music. It’s pretty inspiring to be in the middle of all this, and right now is the best time to be making music as an artist. 

I absolutely love global bass music. Mainly because of the way artists in this sphere have infused the sound of their culture and tradition into heavy bass music to make it their own. It was only a couple years ago, that I came across Buraka Som Sistema, Copia Doble Sistema, Tropkillaz, Alo Wala, and was blown away by how eclectic this sound was. I love what they’re all doing, and I feel like I can represent my culture, my identity in a similar fashion.




6. How’s 2017 looking for Raka? What’s in store for us, anything on going [Gigs, collaborations] that you are really excited about and would like to share with us?
A - Collaborations with other homegrown producers are definitely in the pipeline. 
There are a couple tracks I’ve worked on for the #1beat1week exercise (created by Ketan Bahirat/Oceantied), that I feel are good enough to be made as full length tracks. 

This year for me is really just about making music that is true to who I am, and simply creating more. I haven’t put out much in the past couple years, but I look forward to sharing a lot more this year.




7. What is your studio / DJ set-up?
A - I use a 15” Macbook Pro w/ Retina display for my art and music. I run Ableton 9 on it. As for the hardware, I have an M-Audio Axiom 49 keyboard, A Traktor S2 MK2 Controller, and a pair of Audio Technica M-50x headphones, Creative T-40 series II speakers that do the job for me at the moment.




8. Can you list 3 tunes you are feeling right now.
A - Machinedrum - Do It 4 U
Sam Gellaitry - The Gateway
Oceantied - Streets




9. What is the best gig (club/festival) you have played so far. In terms of Sound Systems, Venue and Crowd Response?
A - By far the best and the most memorable one - October 23 2015 - My debut gig as a DJ at The Humming Tree, where I got the opportunity to open for Daddy G (Massive Attack). I was given a 30 minute slot, but ended up playing for a good 45 mins. Shout out to The Humming Tree/Nikhil Barua for giving me that one shot. That was my first time ever, playing in front of a couple hundred people. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to start my career as a DJ.



10. What's the funniest / craziest thing that has ever happened to you during a gig?
A : This one guy walking up to me to wish me Happy Friendship Day over and over again, followed by his friend who kept requesting me to play some David Gutka.
Yes..Gutka.





11. You just found out that your last gig ever is tomorrow, what would be your closing track?
A : LURUBASS - cuz why not?

#BassMondays - Nuphlo (Interview + Dubplate 021)

To plan and present a new exclusive mix set each month, with a new artist, representing a whole new set of sounds in an interesting way; the entire process from the beginning till the end is so rewarding, each time. And we can happily say that every Dubplate feature has been a nothing less than a stepping stone for us.

The month of April is special, indeed. Constantly inspired from the 90s Asian Underground music, this Leeds based [Indian origin] Producer/DJ fabricates a 
delicate balance of eastern melodies, innovative beats and low subs. All of it started in the year of 2001, with a vision to create a quintessential blend of Asian Underground music with new, cutting edge Electronica. He has also been a very active memebr of the Nasha collective, was [and is] a synonym of 'Eastern influenced Bass music' for most of us while growing up.

Having released on labels such as Nasha records (UK), High Chai records (USA), Meerkat ecordings (Sweden), Lola's World (Germany), Terminal Dusk records (USA), Boosey and Hawkes (UK), Universal records and more predominantly on Studio Rockers (UK) where he released the '40 Thieves EP' working alongside legendary producer Tony 'Moody Boyz' Thorpe. He has previously remixed for artists such as Landslide, State of Bengal, Foreign Beggars, Jazzsteppa and Boosey & Hawkes.

Talking about soulful & melodic music with just the perfect touch of new sounds, it is certainly one of first few names that comes into our minds. 
We couldn't be any more excited to present a exclusive conversation [and a mix set] with Nuphlo.






1. Hey Mannie, how are you doing? We really appreciate you taking out the time to do this. To begin with, tell us the how did you come to chose ‘Nuphlo’ as your artist name and the story behind your choice of music?
A - I am well thanks. I guess if I was to come up with an interesting answer to the first part of this question, it would be that the name is all about representing Eastern Bass music in a new way. But in reality I picked it because it just sounds cool. I like to make music that represents my identity as a second generation British Indian. The aim is to make tracks that both cultures can relate to and enjoy.




2. What do you feel about the Bass scene in the UK [where you are based out of] and what are your thoughts on its evolution so far? What do you see when you compare it with the scene here in India?
A - The variety of electronic music that is available today is incredibly vast. I have been lucky to witness its development from a young age thanks to older members of my family who were into early electronic music. There are many styles I love and others not so much. But there is something for everyone and technology has given birth to a plethora of artists who can express themselves through electronic music. 
The scene in India is great, I feel privileged to be able to play there annually. I have met so many interesting producers, musicians, DJs and artists throughout India.




3. We have all known of ‘Nasha Collective’ while growing up and it’s been a synonym to the Eastern influenced Bass Music. Since you’ve one of the early core members of the collective, run us through the foundation and it’s journey so far.
A - In my opinion Nasha Records has been the spearhead for setting the standard for the new wave of Eastern Bass music. Ges-e and Osmani sounds’ vision for the direction of this music is what has inspired my own journey. Nasha Records has been an integral part of my development as an artist. The monthly clubnights is where we all met and the outcome of our friendship was Nasha V3. The forthcoming music on Nasha Records is setting the bar even higher for the East-West sound.





4. With quite a few things going on, you also run ‘Hundred Colours Music’, which is your own label. Does the name have to do anything with ‘Sarangi’, a prominent instrument in the Indian classical culture, which also roughly means ‘100 colors’? Tell us in brief about how it works and how do you go ahead with the collaborations and releases?
A - Hundred Colours Music was setup by Myself, Shandy and Osmani Sounds. Although we are still firm members of Nasha Records. HCM was setup to put out predominantly Eastern DNB rollers more frequently. In a sense it is a sister label to Nasha. The name stems from the track ‘Hundred Colours’ by the Nasha Experience. Shandy suggested the name for the label, and yes that is the origin of its meaning. 
With HCM, we are open to collaborations. I believe the Eastern Bass scene is underrepresented both on the Radio and through labels. So I am hoping that our label will represent those who make similar styles. We have released music by State of Bengal, Ges-E, Maneesh the Twister and Barasingha to date, with more collaborations in the pipeline. 





5. Making music and also running a label, how do you find the inspiration to continuously put out good content on a regular basis? Any word of advice to people/musicians who want to work on similar lines?
A - I think the current climate of tension across the UK and other parts of the world is having a positive creative effect. Particularly when the tension stems from racial/immigration point of view. As a descendent of immigrants myself I feel personally affected. I make music that brings together cultural ideas. So I believe doing this during a time of unsettlement is even more important. 
As for aspiring artists, just keep an open mind and expect to make a lot of mistakes. I still make many errors, but it’s how you develop from them.




6. You are also releasing an EP later in this month, ‘I am Time/Chariot’, tell us about that? What else is in store for 2017, any new albums we could look forward to?
A - The next EP on HCM is out on 23rd April. The second track is collaboration with Mumbai producer ‘Barasingha’. 
I have also just completed my first 14 track album which will be out on London label Studio Rockers. Tony Thorpe aka The Moody Boyz has worked closely with me for the past eight years. I have released many tracks on his label and Tony has given me a greater understanding of the professional side to the music industry as well as much creative advice. He is a legend in the UK dance music scene, with an incredibly prolific career working with The KLF, The Mad Professor, Amy Winehouse to name a few. 
The album is entitled ‘Digital Culture Clash.’ I have collaborated with many artists and musicians and singers to bring this together. Vocals on two tracks are by Hyderabad’s Shivacult. Other artists that feature on the album are Ajay Jayanthi, Sukh Knight, Mel Gray, Tanya Jacobs, Deelite MC, MC JD, NIV and Amyn Merchant. The album artwork has also been designed by India’s Ashish Jose. There are a range of tempos on the album and I had fun making it.




7. What is your studio / live / DJ set-up?
A - To make tunes I use Cubase SX2, Akai MPC 2000XL, MPC 500, Korg Volka Keys, Roland SH-32 synthesizer and a Yamaha MG12/4 mixing desk. I have a pair of Pioneer CDJ800s and a Vextax PMC-06 pro mixer to DJ (which I also used for the Drum and Bass India's Dubplate Mix).




8. Can you list 3 tunes you are feeling right now.
A - Essa Weira-Night Fire on studio rockers, A dubplate by Osmani Soundz called Room 33 and many untitled dubs from GES-E.




9. What is the best gig (club/festival) you have played so far. In terms of Sound Systems, Venue and Crowd Response?
A - Last summer I played at the closing party at Blue Frog Mumbai (Frogfest). I have never been in a club with so many people. There wasn’t room to breathe.




10. What's the funniest / craziest thing that has ever happened to you during a gig?
A : Early on I used to DJ at an Asian underground night in Leeds called ‘Kushboo.’ On one occasion after a classical performance by a local musician, I started my set with some heavy DnB. I remember the shocked expression on people’s faces. It was a learning curve in that you need to hook your audience with an enticing intro track, once you have them you can take them on a journey anywhere. 





11. You just found out that your last gig ever is tomorrow, what would be your closing track?
A : Black Star Liner – Harmon Dub.



12. An absolute favourite city/venue in India that you love coming back to?
A : Bass Sanskriti in Hyderabad. Spending time with the Monkey Radio KRU down there is always a pleasure. I have been going there for the past three years and each time is always special. Rahul Mangal who manages my gigs is also a member of the KRU. The crowd in Hyderabad connect well to the Eastern Bass vibes.

#BassMondays - Aeon Waves (Interview + Dubplate 020)

As mentioned earlier in one of our posts, last couple of months have been absolutely amazing. The new year has kicked off really well, and good music, gigs, experiences, don't seem to come to an end. We certainly do not hope it does. As we come to an end of Delta Heavy India Tour, just around Holi, we have another Holi surprise for this rainy evening. Extremely pleased to have a super talented producer from Ahmedabad [India], Aeon Waves. Kanishk Budhori, the man behind this project, has created and continues to create some of the most beautiful tracks that we've ever come across. With a massive following on Youtube and other platforms, Kanishk has released some of his tunes on many international labels [Mindtrick Records and Onset Audio]. We are truly proud to say our country is home to such skilled producers. Go ahead, read about him, and listen to the exclusive set that he has made for us. 





1. Hey Kanishk, glad to have your board with us for #BassMondays. First of all, why/how did you go for the ’Aeon Waves’ as your artist name? It’s been a few years that you have into production, what’s the journey been like? Tell us about how you started, and how Aeon Waves’ music has evolved since it came into shape?
A - Well, I have always been really fascinated by the concept of sound waves, and the fact that their vibrations like other form of energy doesn't really end in space but they keep on going until it is indistinguishable from the vibrations of the surrounding medium, making these waves timeless. And hence the name, Aeon Waves.



2. Your tracks are very unique, bass oriented ambient, all of them with haunting vocals, bits and pieces from some old speeches, hindi tracks, etc. and they take you on a profound joinery we feel, what are your inspirations that push you to make such tracks? Also, is there any particular process that you follow for making the tunes/tracks?
A - During the initial days of music production, I was very much inclined towards Trance music. Then, making music was only for fun, and I hadn't released anything. However, when I started Aeon Waves, even though I was into the same sounds, sudden came the switch where I started writing tunes without thinking of musical style. Basically, something that communicated my feelings. There isn't any process like production theories that I follow. I just make and put various sounds in the track which I enjoy and like. And that's when/why I started experimenting with ambient music, with more vocals, effects and various other out of the box ideas.



3. What is your studio / DJ set-up?
A - Desktop, Scarlet 2i2, Yamaha HS-80, Launchpad, Traktor S2.



4. Can you list 3 tunes you are feeling right now.
A - Keosz - Low Down
Stumbleine - Comatose
Moshimoss - Phoenix




5. Aeon Waves has released a bunch of tracks on various record labels like Mindtrick Records, Onset Audio etc. Tell us more about these collaboration, and about how has it been working with these international record labels?
A - Honestly, I never thought of sending my tracks to any Label. I was just making music, because I enjoyed it. When these labels approached me for releasing my tracks, honestly I was slightly shocked and surprised. And it's been a great experience working with these Labels so far. They have really supported my music and also helped me spread my music through various music platform like Spotify, Itunes,Beatport,etc. All of this has been very helpful for a global exposure.




6. Some of your track uploads on Youtube channels have as much as 60k+ views, congratulations on that. How have these channels and the youtube audience been helpful to you?A - Thank you. :) And well, for me it has given me a great advantage. Youtube channels like Ambient, Keep It Underground, etc. have the right audience which really are into ambient, chill out and many other experimental genres. And it surely helps an artist like me to know more related artists and explore more tracks made by them, and to get inspired. This way, I also get an opportunity to learn and grow.




7. You’ve already given out a few beautiful singles in this year, Voices, The Secret Garden, etc. How has the response been? Have they been officially released on some label or you are showering the audience with some free love?
A - Yes, The response has been absolitely unbelievable. It makes me happy to know that there is an audience that really digs music from every genre. I have always liked to experiment with my tracks and observe the audience's review, and it's been so positive. 
These days I am just releasing tracks for free download mostly. Although I intend on releasing an EP soon.





8. What do you feel about the Bass scene in India and what are your thoughts on its evolution so far? Also, what’s your take on the global bass scene?
A - I think is has really evolved over time. There's so many artists who are 
representing India, all of them so talented. Some of my favourite artists like Mosillator, Heuse, Seven & Seven, Blot, Resonare, Ayan Das and lot of other unheard talents are bringing fresh sounds with immense efforts and are doing a great job in their music production.




9. How’s 2017 looking for Aeon Waves? What’s in store for us, anything on going that you are really excited about and would like to share with us?
A - Well, lets see how it goes. I will be releasing more Singles and few EPs and hopefully I might do some gigs. I have been learning Live performance techniques.



10. Essentially a producer, but do you have any intentions of doing your own shows? If yes, then how is that coming along? Any city/place where you would like to perform?
A : So far I don't really have anything, but I am working on putting together Live performances in which I will be playing my own tracks, which might take some time. But till then, I will be doing DJ sets.





11. Pick a track that you would want to listen to/play, if the world was to end tomorrow?
A : Noisia - Could This Be.
