Hugh Pescod, better known as Redlight is a DJ, record producer, re-mixer and composer from Bristol, England.[1]

Biography[edit]

Hugh Pescod is a Bristol-raised, London-based artist. He started out in the early 2000s under the alias DJ Clipz, with a string of releases on various Drum & Bass labels including Full Cycle and Digital Soundboy.[2] In 2009 he diversified his production style and adopted the alias Redlight, setting up the label Lobster Boy for his productions and debuting with his single "Rock The House" / "Twist Up" and the Lobster Boy EP.

2010 saw the release of two dance floor recordings: the first, "Stupid" on Shy FX's Digital Soundboy, featuring the vocals of Roses Gabor, and the second single, "What You Talking About!?" on Chase & Status's MTA Records, which featured Ms. Dynamite. In 2011 Redlight released two more tracks via Digital Soundboy in the shape of "Source 16" and "Progress" as well as his 2nd release on the MTA label "Get Out My Head". He has also remixed artists from the likes of Cee Lo Green and Maverick Sabre to Ms. Dynamite.

In 2012 he released his second single "Mosquito" / "Planet X" on the Lobster Boy imprint. His UK Top 10 track "Lost in Your Love" was released on Polydor and came with an official video.[3] Later that year he has taken up the alias Animal Youth, which was used to release his remixes of the songs "Lose My Breath" by Destiny's Child and "Try Again" by Aaliyah through the single "Keep Up" / "Try Again".[4][5] The single "Sixty Forty Zero" / "Crackle" was also released with this alias.

A single, "Switch It Off", was released on 22 April 2013. It was originally an independent, self-released free download before it was given new remixes by Ben Pearce and Paleman. On 10 March 2014, he released the 36 EP with appearances from Raekwon, Syron and Lotti. The title track entered the UK Singles Chart at number 81. The tracks "36" and "Get Money" were released as singles before the release of the EP and were given music videos.[6][7]
