The exploration of my body gave me knowledge when there were no books to guide me. The result was the awareness that the body is a gift, pleasure is the way, and that following the body’s way is the map everybody can follow to move and feel better. -DR

Emerging from his own distinct corner of the West Coast electronic music scene, Random Rab offers a powerful and unique contribution to sonic exploration. Often referred to as “The Master of Emotion” his music is patently beautiful and melodic. With diverse influences ranging from trip-hop, classical and Arabic to bass driven compositions, his songs are considered anthemic and timeless.

Rab: One of the biggest practical changes I see happening in our lifetime is the movement away from fossil fuels. If we can’t stop pumping carbon into the atmosphere, than little else will matter. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and believe we are on the right path, at least from a technological standpoint. As a species we must come together and act as one family with one purpose: to love each other and this planet unabashedly. We must work shamelessly for unity and for beauty. By creating beauty, we are creating life.

Rab: Remember to dance even when the music is not playing—-for somewhere a celestial symphony is dancing with us inside of it. To dance in the modern sense is to simply tune into the great dance of the cosmos. For this reason it is ecstatic. It is our true form.
