For Getting Deeper’s 66th podcast, we’ve got Bangalore’s very own Rishi Sippy with a banging techno set that we are going to listen to over and over again.
I remember a time around 5 years ago when I first listened to Rishi play live. It’s really amazing to see how he has progressed, and much to my pleasant surprise he has acquired a very deep and intense taste in music that I absolutely needed to showcase on Getting Deeper. His live sounds are a lot more edgy than what I initially expected, and I absolutely love them. I like how he, unbound by genre orthodoxy, isn’t afraid to play around with track tempos… with sets that can get really low and minimal if given a chance, only to rise up to the beat of a techno kick.
And so, I am really excited to publish a set by someone I have actually listened to live a lot of times. His set for Getting Deeper follows a traditional progression that I rarely hear nowadays. It begins with deep, emotional sounds that eventually get much darker, and after the second half, they get more heady and definitely more enchanting. A harder techno bassline makes a welcoming appearance at this point.
The end result: A cushioning, beautifully haunting set that stays true its vibe. It gradually blooms into a dark, cosmic extravagance that is adored on Getting Deeper.
Thank you Rishi!
