REDLIGHT at Stealth (11/02/11)REDLIGHT (Digital Soundboy / MTA Records)
Originally best known for his drum’n’bass productions as DJ Clipz for labels like Full Cycle and Audio Zoo, Redlight is the alter-ego of Bristolian Hugh Pescod, which he’s used to explore an individual vision of bass music where grime, dubstep and squealing electro bleed into an overwhelmingly vibrant fusion, often soundtracked by ragga and grime vocalists.
REDLIGHT at Stealth (11/02/11)Redlight's debut, The 'Lobster Boy' EP dropped in 2009, with the A-Side 'Feel So Good (Wine Up Your Body)' receiving some major support from Skream, Shy FX, Goldie, Rusko, Toddla T, Chase & Status and Jack Beats.

With Redlight's dubplates attracting the attention of the DJ A-list, it wasn't long before his next track 'Stupid' was snapped up - seeing a release in March 2010 on Shy FX's 'Digital Soundboy' Records. The original dub version was joined by a vocal version courtesy of Gorillaz & Kano collaborator Roses Gabor.

One of the biggest tracks in Redlight's unreleased arsenal was his massive 'MDMA Riddim', which following months of hype saw a release in August '09 on Chase & Status' 'MTA Records'. Once again the original instrumental version was included alongside a vocal - this time courtesy of Ms Dynamite - with the track being turned into the massive hit 'What U Talking About?!'.

Here is a link to another forthcoming Redlight banger - some calling it 'Source 16' and some 'Next Hype'. Keep an ear out for this one!

Not content with his own tracks Redlight has also been in the studio producing for other artists - including Ms Bratt ('Selecta'), Roses Gabor ('Lovesick') and Ben Westbeech ('Do It All Again').


And if that wasn't enough he has also found the time to collaborate alongside Rusko and also Toddla T (as 'Roller Express'). Busy busy busy!
