Composer, music producer and pianist from Mauritius, currently based in England. My YouTube channel has over a million views and my music was featured on Music Crowns, BBC, ITV and Pianist Magazine. My song 'Paradise Island' was listed among the top tracks of 2021 on BBC Music Introducing.
Being a trained versatile composer, music producer and pianist, I will help you get the sound you want in your productions. I am most experienced in scoring for piano, composing and arranging music for films, but also experienced in producing modern popular music genres such as Pop, Rock, R&B, Electronic, EDM and happy to experiment with more.
I am experienced in areas of composition, production, editing, mixing and mastering having studied a BSc in Audio and Music Technology and a masters in Film Scoring. I am also a classically trained concert/session pianist most prominent in Classical but also in Jazz and Blues. Check out my YouTube, Soundcloud and Spotify for a glimpse of everything I have worked on.

Really appreciate the work that Rahul did on this. The piano made a huge difference in how the track feels. Natural sounding & beautiful melodies. Would love to work together again!
Rahul created the Jingle for my financial literacy programme, OuKass, on live radio (Top FM) and streamed on TopTV. Very excited about this collaboration and satisfied with the work done.
A fabulous and seasoned pianist. Rahul has a great ability to introduce complex technicalities in covers of pop songs. I have experienced this in our own collaborations, as well as watching him in solo performances.
A virtuoso! Most importantly a treat to work with, both in the studio and on stage
Excellent work. Very competent and professional.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I always look to bring the best out of both the composition and the sound always looking for high quality result. To look for what's best from an audience perspective.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I normally use the piano to compose. Once an outline of the composition is done I move towards the production phase and the orchestration/instrumentation. For productions, I always start with re-arranging the tracks and layout and choosing the best takes out of all recorded materials, whether it's MIDI or Audio. Editing comes next, cleaning all the takes in one coherent piece. Mixing and mastering done simultaneously afterwards to correct tonal, dynamic and acoustic issues and polish the loudness.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Avoid redundancy and always aim to look for what's wrong in the mix and refrain from constantly adding stuff to fix it. Keeping things simple is most of the times the best decision. When mixing it's also important to give your ears regular breaks to keep a fresh perspective and avoid possible misjudgements
