We got an exclusive interview with Rubesh Radhakrishnan as he shares his background, inspirations, future plans and maybe a little more.                                                                                                                                   

Daston: Thank you so much for coming down to TheGuruSG to do this interview, you look sharp, smart and eager to start! Please introduce yourself.                                                                                                                                                 
Rubesh R.: I am a music composer/director and have done about three feature films. The third film (Malaysian feature) has yet to be released in theatres in this region. I am working on a fourth film right now. Aside from music, I can do colour grading, editing, aerial scenery photography and drone cinematography.                                                                                                            
Daston: Wow, very impressive. What is your background?                                                                                                                                                
Rubesh R.: Well, no one in my family is in or from the music industry. I'm the first person who has ventured into music as a career and I am enjoying every part of the process. My background is in Sound Engineering which helped a lot in my music career.                                                                                                                                                                       
Daston: So who is the biggest inspiration for your music?                                                                                                                      
Rubesh R.: Coincidentally, the biggest inspiration for my music has to be Yuvan Shankar Raja! My style is similar to Yuvan’s- Very in tune with the current trends. His songs are some of the biggest influence on me. Songs by Yuvan in the films Sandakozhi 2 and Taramani has had a huge impact on my style as well as his songs from the 2004/2005 years.                                                                                                                                         
Daston: Cool, It's really nice to draw inspiration from the big names of the industry. I heard of your future plans, tell us about it.                                                                                                                                           
Rubesh R.: Right, future plans are to make more music videos, singles and music for feature films. On top of that, I want to make new music genres. I have made “Kuthustep” when I did the Malaysian movie Biishman. It's a combination of Kuthu meaning Tamil folk and “step” from dubstep to make “Kuthustep”.                                                                                                        
Daston: If Kuthustep catches on, It will be a household genre for the club scene.                                                             
Rubesh R.: For sure! Like how Koreans invented K-Pop and made it super popular, I'm into mixing Indian elements with the existing music genres to create a completely new one. Yuvan has done that to some extent.                                                                                            
Daston: I wish you the very best on your musical journey and once more, Thanks so much for doing this interview!                                                                                                                                                                        
Rubesh R.: Thanks for having me!
