CoLoNeLReD UK Funksta
CoLoNeLReD's NEW 'REDLIGHT' Album
NOW! available @:
Headquarters & creative home is Ruff Language.
The 'Redlight' album, written, performed, produced & arranged by performing/recording artist CoLoNeLReD is rhythmically exotic, poetically enchanting, lyrically prophetic & musically euphoric. While echoing socially aware commentary with song titles 'State of Alarm' & 'World Ain't Easy' this album invites you to indulge in Redz egotistical honesty, with songs such as 'Believe In Me' & 'MonuMental', different?, yes. Being entirely self produced by Redz, this album explores a musical explosion never heard by this cutting edge artist before. CoLoNeLReD turns his studio, 'Tribal Rhymes', inside out to become his creative Aladin's cave, fusing rock, soul, funk, blues, jazz & gospel styles to concoct the governing atmosphere of the 'Redlight' long player. Combining the raspy hip hop/trip hop-esk vibe that carries the CoLoNeL's unique and heavy swing, delivering vocals, gritty, soulful, deep & poetic, through to sweet & angelic, most songs on the RL album vibrate across a fugue tribal like funk.
The exception, 'Change' which takes you on real slow walk through the rain, and 'Stay the Right Way', reminiscent of the golden Atlantic sound of Al Green, it’s horn stabs, rolling bass, pinning organ & the sound of heartbreaking vocals leveled off with the tish of the high hat, giving it that stark feeling.
Entwining melodies, with sublime chord changes and mysterious synthetic keyboard lines, ramping edgy guitar work, locked tight to deep n sexy bass lines, circling on top of rampant intercut heavy funked out beats, reaching all the senses, once the last track has ended, you simply have to go back to track one to get your well needed fix.
'Redlight' is clearly a raw yet refined cutting edge sound, that has been made truthfully, with love & care, how else could it of been made when you're left hanging on every word, hook & melody!
Redlight is already receiving worldwide accolade for being one of most groundbreaking albums of 2014, as well as being Redz’ best ever work to date.
Gilles Peterson of BBC RADIO 6 Music championed 'Believe In Me' to be a 'Worldwide Winner' in 2013, featuring this song repeatedly over many of his 'connecting the dots' radio show specials.
November 22nd 2013 saw the release of Believe In Me on Redz very own label 'Ink Rebellion' instantly become infectious being played & downloaded on every known medium site around the world,..
"Independence is key to any kind of real present & future in a creative business" Redz explains,..'the music industry has changed and is still changing rapidly, there's no place for run catch up?. This change we are experiencing is aggressive and will leave you behind, so my advice is to act on your instincts & stay true to your reasons for playing in such a sport.'
Ink Rebellion, creative portal for all new & bonified CoLoNeLReD releases!, born out of necessity in 2012, together with co-director 'Clio S. Anderaz' to realign the creative path & direction for the artist, as opposed to an outside entity. First comes inspiration, then comes creation, once creation is complete, then comes the question,.. what ,who next? what label can we approach? who can we get to believe in my/our music enough to do a great job with it!? In this case, Ink Rebellion was & is the answer to this common question,..to market, promote and sell such a unique product of music & art takes belief of a kind, to spend the time & money necessary to reach as many people as humanly possible with this particular product takes dedication & understanding! Ink Rebellion offers all the above, explains Redz, and still there's more!!?! for if you are not devoted to something worth loosing sleep over & counting the small victories as well as the larger ones! then you're simply going through the motions & possibly compromising your ability to achieve true success! Ink Rebellion stands for devotion to a cause and the refusal to compromise a truth; in this case the truth is sharing the originality of CoLoNeLReD music with his audience.
Spring of 2014 sees the release of the 'Redlight' album, Autumn of 2014 sees the release of the 'Redlight Dubmental' special addition album!
