History[edit]

Following time spent playing synthesizers and talkbox in funk and metal bands, Redinho began working on his solo material with UK dance record label Numbers in 2010, when his beat tape Bare Blips[2] was released in its raw demo state.

Redinho became well known for his talkbox and synthesizer LED live shows and his 2011 Numbers release "Stay Together".[3] Since this release, Redinho has played at festivals worldwide including South by Southwest[4] and Sónar,[5] collaborated with electronic producer Rustie[6] and rapper 100s,[7] and released the single "Searching" on Numbers in 2013.[8] His fans include Jessie Ware,[9] Mark Ronson[10] and Hudson Mohawke.[11]

Redinho released his self-titled debut album on Numbers on 22 September 2014.[12] The first single, "Playing with Fire", was made available following the announcement of the album on 24 July 2014.[13] The album included vocal contributions from Brendan Reilly, Vula, and Vanessa Haynes.[14]

Redinho is a member of Swet Shop Boys along with Heems and Riz MC.[15] On 14 October 2016, the group released an album, Cashmere.[16]
