Redlight (UK producer)
Redlight is a Bristol raised, London based artist navigating the unnamed airspace between house, bass and beyond. Having already crafted a handful of jet-propelled bangers which have won over fans and followers including Skream, Toddla T, Jack Beats, A Trak, Mark Ronson, Zinc and Annie Mac.
Brought up around 90’s warehouse rave culture in Bristol, his music and career has spanned over a decade, having spent 12 years grafting on the underground, popping up for air in 2012 with a couple of Top 10 UK hits in the national charts. He has since then released his debut solo album entitled 'X Colour'
He has collaborated with artists such as Mobb Deep, Raekwon (Wu-Tang Clan). Remixed acts including Mary J. Blige and Tink, defining genres, remaining one of the UK’s most consistent and exciting producers of recent years with many more to come.
His aim of being true to himself and making the most of opportunities, creating music, art and friendships has been central to everything he has done, drawing inspiration from street culture, independence and productivity.
With his label ‘Lobster Boy’ embracing a love for House, Techno, Hip Hop and vocal-lead dance music, whilst channelling his knowledge and love of Jungle, DnB and bass music, it is a whole new genre-free ‘cross-cultured dance music’ label. After exploring a versatile sound on his debut album, the visionary producer has taken things back to his club roots with a mixtape - ‘Templates Volume 1’ which focuses on tracks crafted specifically for his world-renowned DJ sets.
The mixtape series is all about club music. For most of the events Redlight plays, he usually comes with new productions every time. The mixtape series is a culmination of all these productions and is a selection of the best tunes and remixes he has done and will continue to do so.
The Redlight sound has spread fast with his unique DJ sets throughout the UK and Europe and with his monthly Rinse FM show this ensures people are sitting up and paying attention the World over.
