Soon he became a household name in the house scene, voted #3 best Garage DJ in 1998. The garage period came to its natural ending though when in the late nineties Rishi decided to focus on tribal,latin and soulful house.
During the next couple of years he kept gigging all over the place. It looked as if he could be at multiple locations at the same time as his name could be found on almost every bill of every major club and/or party in existence. In Holland and Europe!
His productions grew stronger with every new release and when in 2003 his track “Peak Compression” was picked up by Pete Tong in the BBC Radio 1 show, it seemed nothing could stand in the way of this talented dj/producer.
In 2006 he releases three vinyl productions: with D-Rashid As Latin Rockers on G-REX and Big Boss records. Many more successful productions followed: ‘Casera’ with Mc Stretch, ‘Get Ready’ with Mitch Crown, ‘Monkey say, monkey do’ , ‘Why?’ and Dirty Ballon with Melly Mel on Spinnin' Records
