- Clipz, Lobster Boy and a Dream Vision Future.
- Hugh Pescod gained his musical education in a fertile period of Bristol and UK music history, as emergent forms like jungle, trip hop and techno were bound in a fabric of fresh creativity. He was intrigued with the mechanics of music production from an early age, making loops from cassette tapes and DJing by 12 years old. On weekends, he lived to hear the latest dubplates at raves by local drum & bass pioneers like Krust, Die and Suv. By the turn of the millennium he was hearing his idols playing his early productions at fabric and soon went on to become a regular contributor to the Full Cycle Records catalogue alongside his heroes under his Clipz alias.
Bigger things came with the adoption of his best known moniker, Redlight. Tracks like "Source 16," "Get Out Of My Head" and his infamous collaboration with Ms Dynamite are imprinted in the UK dance music consciousness, while his remixes for the likes of Destiny's Child and Aaliyah gave him mainstream chart and radio presence. On this week's Exchange Pescod introduces us to his new label Dream Vision Future, shares memories of his formative years in the Bristol scene and talks through his balanced yet inspiring philosophy of creativity.
