A luminary of the West Coast's psychedelic-bass music diaspora, Random Rab (born Rab Clinton) has served as a vessel for messages within our hearts since 1998. More than just a DJ or producer, Rab has evolved into a whimsical wizard, creating songs of faith and devotion, and inspiring a generation of dreamers to go deeper. The master of ceremony returns with his eleventh full-length album Formless Edge in 2017; it is yet another in a vaunted vault of masterpiece theater. A sorcerer’s gumbo of cosmic Kirtan, Evangelical folk and holy-ghost Gospel, set atop enduring, minimalist foundations, Rab’s storied songbook is an amalgam of inspiration; of deftly blended instrumentation over organic electronics, the sonics of nature, and a mystical healing curandero.
Throughout his career, Random Rab has blurred the boundaries between genres, immersing himself in music as medicine and the cultures that surround. Often a festival headliner, his patient, provocative journeys - for both sunrise and sunset - have become the stuff of legend the world over from Lightning in a Bottle to Boom to Shambhala to his seven consecutive Costa Rican sunrises at Envision Festival. His celestial ceremonies in Black Rock City have become Burning Man rites of passage.
