Interview with Ravi, formerly known as Sex Ray Vision
Emetiic: “Do you have any new tracks planned for the future?”
Ravi: “Of course! A few official and unofficial remixes coming soon. Also some original tracks that are in various stages of production. The past couple weeks have been a bit backlogged but there’s going to be a ton of new stuff very soon.”
Emetiic: “How did you start producing music?”
Ravi: “In high school I made beats with a couple friends in a hip hop group. It was a ton of fun and I’ve just been doing it ever since. For EDM specifically I started doing that a couple years back, just making bootleg remixes of popular songs and that’s where I got my first fans as Sex Ray Vision.”
Emetiic: “In your opinion what is your biggest musical accomplishment?”
Ravi: That’s really tough to say, I think my biggest accomplishment hasn’t happened yet lol. I don’t know if this really counts as an “accomplishment” but I headlined a crowd of over 2500 last fall and the show got shut down about 20 minutes into my set because it was too loud. I’m pretty proud of that.”
Emetiic: “Why the name change from Sex Ray Vision?”
Ravi: “There were several reasons. Mostly though I wanted a clean break and a fresh start, I’m trying to explore some different musical directions. SRV had a very specific and distinct sound and I kind of want to move away from that.”
Emetiic: “What is your favorite venue to play?”
Ravi: “I’d say the few shows I’ve done in Vegas were always awesome. That’s a whole different atmosphere than anywhere else, it’s hard to imagine that a place like that even exists.”
Emetiic: “Do you have any tips for people trying to make it in the EDM industry?”
Ravi: “Work hard and make good music. Don’t worry about promoting yourself or touring or all that other BS at first: just make sure your music is good, and put it up on the internet so people can give you feedback. If it’s good enough, everything else will take care of itself.”
Emetiic: “…and finally, where do you see EDM in 10 years??
Ravi: “EDM is going to take over the universe. Seriously though. You’re already starting to hear a ton of mainstream pop songs on the radio which are heavily EDM influenced and that’s just going to continue to be the case. Part of the reason is that it’s so easy to make EDM compared to other genres, all you need is a laptop and some creativity. EDM is democratizing the ability for anyone to make music and for anyone to become a star, so all the up-and-coming producers of this generation are going to be in EDM.”
Now enjoy some of Ravi’s fine selection!
Who doesn’t love a great FREE Dada Life remix?
If this next track doesnt make you jizz your pants, you should probably stop listening to EDM. This track just rages…just unreal and totally worth the money.
