X Colour by Redlight

Redlight (Hugh Pescod) is a 41-year-old DJ from Bristol. Being brought up in Bristol during the ’90s, rave culture may be to thank for his musical creations today, as well as his ‘who gives a fuck anyway’ attitude.

Releasing music since 2009, Redlight finally got into the UK top 10 in 2012 with his song “Lost in Your Love”, he’s been constantly creating electronic music his whole life, experimenting and changing as he goes. This album is a perfect representation of his knowledge, experience and personality.

This is an album I found as a teenager and have continued to love in my early twenties. Every song on this album is completely unique to one another, which can sometimes be hard to find in an electronic album.

You have a great variety of electronic sounds all in one place, the ones you listen to for a really good ‘let yourself go, sing along’ and the ones you listen to for the times you just need to let off some intense steam.

X Colour as a whole is a fun listen, it’s nothing you have to think too hard about. You can “just
enjoy it”. it’s the perfect mid-summer party album. That being said the final song on this album is in another league to the rest.

I won’t lie this album might not be for everyone, but it’s fun and free.

About the author

Hello! My name is Josephine Robertson. I’m a second-year university student studying Digital Media Production at Cambridge School of Art. After reading that it will be no shock to you that I love nearly all things creative. predominantly photography, literature and of course music.

Music for me, much like books and photography is in a realm of its own. Literature is there to transport your mind to a different time, a different place, something only the writer may fathom. Photography is there to grace you with scenes and experiences you could only ever dream of, it creates endless new worlds just waiting for you. Music, when powerful enough is the combination of both. When you find THAT album or THAT song it can be the piece of art that pushes you to decipher those places and drives you to visit those worlds.

Music to me is energy. Be that the energy of a friend when you’re heartbroken and can barely move or be that the energy of the whole world at your fingertips.

Now I’ve done my poetry segment (You’re welcome) I’ll come back down to earth for you. I love music. I’m not here to offer you opinions from a musically educated background. The education I have is formed from listening to music and feeling everything it has to offer, researching the artists and learning their stories. If you too are fellow music feeler you may enjoy my opinions on the music I love. You may even learn something. Basically if you’re in the market for some new to you music, some old-school masterpieces and a digital media students opinions on it come join me.
