Following the success of his phenomenal debut album ‘X Colour’ last year, Bristol bass and house music pioneer Redlight announces the release of his mixtape ‘Templates’ Volume 1 exclusively on his label, Lobster Boy.
The 11 track mixtape boasts the first official release ‘Blood Moon’ out now as a free download, currently on heavy rotation by Annie Mac, Justin Martin, Mistajam, Toddla T, Flava D, Klose One and Monki to name a few. After exploring a versatile sound on his debut album, the visionary producer is taking things back to his club roots with the mixtape. ‘Templates’ focuses on tracks crafted specifically for his world renowned DJ sets, including recent sets at EDC in Mexico, AMP Lost & Found in Malta and his nationwide, Lobster Boy Tour.
“I am very proud to present Templates Volume 1, which is the first in a series of mixtapes that is just all about club music. Most parties I play I always try to make new music for that show, and this is a selection of the best tunes and remixes I’ve done over the past 6 months”
Last year’s release of ‘X Colour’, marked a new beginning for Redlight, and was the culmination of a few years of studio sessions between three different studios in the UK and US. The record draws upon Redlight’s love of colour and expression through music and embodies the full spectrum of sounds and influences that have become synonymous with his production. The album featured artists Billie Black, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Melissa Whiskey, Roses Gabor, ASTR and Andrea Martin.
