Vespers recently caught up with Random Rab while he was on tour in Canada and invited into the studio for an interview. This is the second time we’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Rab and this piece allowed us to cover his past couple of years on the road, and in the studio.

Rab is an active producer and touring musician, playing shows all the way from Envision in Costa Rica, to Burning Man, to Shambhala Music Festival in Canada. We’re big fans of his music, especially his organic, blissed-out sunrise set style vibes. Vespers & the Warp Academy team are amped to share this one-on-one with you. Enjoy!

In the interview, Random Rab shares about:

• His musical direction over the past couple of years
• His last several releases, including 2 new albums
• Studio production workflow
• His experimentation with organic sounds vs. digital, electronic sounds
• Using hardware in the studio
• How his tracks get started and his initial stages of inspiration and production
• How his fan base has responded to the evolution of his artistic style
• Collaborations and how he approaches them.

Vespers is a beat-making robot sent back in time from the year 2502. He was banished from the future for repeat offenses of making excessively bass-heavy noises, leading to irreparable structural damage to the downtown core of Neo Tokyo. It is reported that his long-time sidekick and party companion “Go-Go”, a biogenetically enhanced fennec fox, also travelled back in time to join him in his exile. Vespers is known for his extensive and unpredictable glitches, which cause him to randomly spout tidbits of music production wizardry and secret techniques to virtually anyone who will listen. Kind of like the robot equivalent of Tourettes Syndrome. You can see hours of videos of him waxing poetic about all kinds of audio geekery on his Youtube channel. Legend has it that getting sent back in time was all part of his “master plan” to create a legion of bass worshipers who will take over the future. Although he isn’t human, he does have an puzzling affinity for jazz music and a fascinating preoccupation with saxophones. You can frequently catch him wreaking bassy-havoc and inciting funk-infused dancefloor mayhem at all kinds of music festivals and West Coast gatherings. WARNING: If there is a Vespers sighting in your area, ensure you protect yourself and your loved ones with heavy duty hearing protection and undertake standard earthquake readiness procedures.
