From North London to Bristol, from the late-90s to now, from reggae to garage to D&B and back again – MC and vocalist Redders has had quite some journey.
Currently lauded as one of the most talented and innovative MCs in the UK underground, his work alongside genre-busting producer and DJ Sam Binga has thrust his astonishing talent and inimitable charm-heavy chatter straight into the limelight.
Redders’ personality-packed, playful wordplay and schizophrenic stylistic range were perfect for the new fast/slow variant of drum & bass that Binga was beginning to perfect alongside other producers from D&B’s more progressive and experimental ranks. Tracks like 2013’s ‘Ayo’ and follow-up ‘Lef Dem’ in 2014, both for the highly vaunted Critical Music label, announced the duo’s blossoming relationship and bold new sound to a wider world. Featuring on a quartet of tracks for Binga’s 2015 debut LP ‘Wasted Days’, Critical wasted no time lapping Redders up as a solo artist in his own right, making him one the first vocalists to join the labels long line of projects in it’s 14 year history.
Now, Redders is ready. His debut EP for Critical has landed and, after almost two decades bellowing lyrics and firing out bars at almost every tempo, it feels like, finally, his moment is here.
