A dynamic true house producer and DJ hailing from Haarlem the Netherlands, talented and passionate Redford, amongst many, spearheads the new wave of that revived, yet innovated sound like no other. #housenation #raw909 #truehouse.
A keen track selectah, Redford is best known for his rhythmic DJ sets, packed with energy throughout, lacing his mixes with a divine blend of funky and vocal house and driven beats. Recording mixtapes in his bedroom as a teenager, his mixing skills were soon picked up by Dutch national radio, where Redford started to mix the weekly Friday-night show at a young age.
Having honed his craft on vinyl, Redford soon made the switch to the electronic side with not one – but two – residencies in Dutch clubs, amassing the reputation as a crowd-reader. Providing his audiences with high-tempo transitions and live edits thanks to his music production knowledge and vast array of selections, Redford soon landed a spot at national radio station SLAM! FM.
Inspired by deeply rooted old school US & UK house, entwined with the more current sounds of admired producers like Calvin Harris and MK, Redford kickstarted his own production catalogue, working tirelessly in the studio ahead of his previous releases on American imprint Nervous, and German label Lickin’ Records.
“We struggled a bit in the studio initially, but eventually produced a piano based house track with an acapella licensed from Defected Records. Lickin’ loved the track and wanted to release it straight away. That first release ever still symbolises that passion and hard work will get you places!” Redford adds.
Spreading his old skool house tinged rumbler “In My House” amongst fellow DJ’s instantly sprung support from none other than Claptone, Todd Terry, Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, UK house legends K-Klass and Elrow resident De La Swing, a respectful nod to the vibrant movement led across 90’s dance-floors. The future shines even brighter for Redford, with his debut single “Fairytale Love” ft. Christian Jules out in winter 2018, alongside a killer dub remix for Strictly Rhythm on the garage smash Roger Sanchez, Park & Sons ft. Julie McKnight – This Feeling. Undoubtedly Redford is one of the most exciting new talents in house music right now!
