Mix Monday: Redlight

Now your probably getting a little sick of me babbling on about Redlight on this blog, but I'm going to carry on for the simple fact that he will turn out to be one of the defining stories of 2010 in British dance music.

At the end of 2009 he released his massive EP, titled Lobster Boy, which was then followed up last month with one of the singles of the year... Stupid, featuring one of the best new vocalists around in Roses Gabor. He's just produced a tune with Rusko, which has been included in Rusko's debut album on Mad Decent... Massive! He's just finished a residency stint on BBC 1Xtra's In New 1Xtra DJs We Trust, to focus on a string of new projects working with the likes of Kelly Rowland, Ms. Dynamite, Wiley and further work with Roses Gabor.

He's just compiled a fantastic mix for Fact Magazine, which includes a hefty swab of new dubplates from Redlight himself... including a new tune with Dynamite MC titled Weepers that Fact forget to ID for you all. There's also Roses Gabor's new tune Love Sick, produced by Redlight, which will feature on her upcoming EP... Check that tune out, absolutely huge, sickening groove.
There are also new cuts from MJ Cole, Doc Daneeka, Ramadanman and Champion... as well as a couple of cheeky exclusive remixes and edit's from Redlight himself. Catch his very interesting take on Tempa T's Boy Off Da Ting... one which will likely become one of the most sought after dubs of the year for many DJs, I'm sure.

I've tidied up the tracklisting a wee bit and added Skream's remix of Killa Sound, which is a blatant gaping hole in the list that Fact posted. That's not a dig at Fact, as they've got a lot of work on their plate ;)... I'm just quite anal when it comes to getting tracklistings right.
