REDLIGHT unveils new track ‘Lion Jungle’ ft. Prodigy of Mobb Deep – the latest to be taken from forthcoming de-but artist album ‘X-Colour’
Having already joined forces with US RnB star Tinashe on slick, club-facing anthem ‘Pretend’, UK producer REDLIGHT has unveiled the latest track to be taken from his forthcoming debut artist album ‘X-Colour’. Premiered by Annie Mac as her ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1, ‘Lion Jungle’ sees Redlight this time collaborate with US hip-hop legend Prodigy of Mobb Deep – and the results are explosive.
Constructed around a stomping, 4×4 tribal beat, a facet of REDLIGHT’s work that is fast becoming a hallmark, the track itself again taps into his firm handle on the clubs. With Prodigy providing an added sense of star quality on the hooks, sweet and sugary pitched-up vocal breaks pave the way for the beat to twist and turn throughout, although the ener-gy remains consistent and infectious throughout.
It’s this sense of energy that sees ‘Lion Jungle’ pick up from where the excellent ‘Pretend’ left off, offering an insight into the creative dynamics that underpin Redlight’s forthcoming debut LP ‘X-Colour’ in the process.
Taking his early queues from Bristol since his early teens, REDLIGHT has certainly come a long way as a producer, DJ and artist in his own right over the course of his career so far. For the most part self-taught, much of his musical education stemmed from a wide range of interests – reggae, hip-hop and even horror films being some of his earliest and ultimately most important – but his recent output nods to a producer with far more than just a varied set of influences in his locker.
Now London-based and head of his own imprint Lobster Boy, REDLIGHT has gone on to pen records with some of the world’s most iconic artists, including Mary J Blige, legendary rap figure Raekwon and most recently rising star vocalist Tinashe, with whom he joined forces on latest single ‘Pretend’. Currently putting the finishing touches to debut artist al-bum project X-Colour – itself a glossy, thoughtfully curated body of tracks that encompass a myriad of different club-centric sounds – REDLIGHT feels more than ready to build on the success of crossover singles ‘9TS’ and the anthemic ‘Gold Teeth’ too.
With plenty of pedigree on the touring circuit, including a recent run of dates in the US supporting BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Redlight’s genre-blurring approach – as evidenced by his willingness to mix anything from garage, grime, hip-hop, house and even techno – also sets him apart as one of the UK’s most innovative selectors.
