Redlight: Active Review


Redlight’s Active is an eclectic and atmospheric dance record, which – aptly named – won’t let you stand still for a second.

The latest record from Redlight, Active presents a musical theme park boasting as much variation as it does energy. With an array of classic Trance anthems, Hip-Hop/Trap vibes, and all around club bangers, Active has jams for every mood.

British DJ and producer Hugh Pescod AKA Redlight incorporates musical influences from a range of electronic styles, from the classic Trance beat of ‘Get Wavey’ to the Grime-esque synth bass of ‘Crazy’ and Hip-Hop infused vibes of ‘So Nice’ and ‘Everyday’. But make no mistake: this is an EDM record.

The album’s array of features is like a sonic buffet: a celebration of stellar up-and-coming London talent. Asabe and Lisa Mercedes inject some urban sounds into the more Trap and Hip-Hop-esque songs, whereas Karen Harding brings an emotive and melancholy chorus to ‘Seasons’, which is underpinned by a slower drum and bass beat.

There’s nothing too experimental on the album – it doesn’t push the boat out – but sometimes that’s okay.

Whether you’re working out to the record, jamming it at a house party, or just dancing alone in your room, Active is a feel good album that will propel you through the colder months.

Active is available now on all major streaming platforms.
