If we knew, we would tell you all about it. The truth is no one knows who he is or where he is from. But what we do know is that Redshape's approach to his production is incomparable to anyone in the the techno realm. He hides his identity behind a red mask, even wearing it on stage at his club dates around Europe, which as of lately have been many. Don't let the mask distract you, the talent is in his dreamy industrial sound that has the dance floors grooving throughout Europe.
Redshape's latest release comes from Rampa's “Newborn Soul” on Keinemusik Records. An aggressive arpeggiated synth drives the whole track, slowly shifting and evolving, keeping the sound on edge while giving it a heavy electro feel. A melodic element is introduced to give it that extra flavor of mystery that track heavily depends on. Than it happens, vocals arise and all the elements from the high hats to the kick drum play in harmony with each other, complimenting one and another causing complete bliss. Hit play and enjoy because the next 9 minutes will take you on an inner mind journey with complete mystery, tactful glitches and beautiful darkness.
