The list of talented EDM producers hailing from London has grown immeasurably in the past decade. With Redinho’s newest tune Stay Together, it’s pretty safe to say that list just got bigger. Out on the Numbers imprint, Redhino will fit in nicely amongst his labelmates Hudson Mohawke, Mosca, and Rustie. The red-haired producer is like the EDM version of Zapp’s Roger Troutman (think More Bounce to the Ounce). He manages to marry his soul-infused talkbox vocal with heavy-hitting, dancefloor bass–all at a head-nodding tempo. The man impressed Hudson Mohawke so much with his amalgamated style that Hud Mo recently invited Red to go on tour with him!
What stands out on Stay Together is the vocoded vocal effect and extremely resonant, long-decaying bass stabs. The constant, pounding 808-style bass drum keeps the rhythm rolling along while Redinho’s vocal vibrato adds proper R&B flavor to satisfy any funk-starved EDM fan. The polyphonic main synth sits just underneath the vocals, creating marvelous harmonies as the notes of the melody frequently overlap. Anybody looking for highly original material will fall in love with Redinho’s latest opus–Stay Together is a one-song playlist!
