In March, Spencer of Glasgow-based label Numbers let the world know that electronic artist Redinho was prepping his debut album and now we have the first hint of what it will sound like. Unsurprisingly, “Stinger” puts the retro futurism he is known for on display along with Numbers’ signature color palette and geometrical obsession in a strobing video. It’s hard not to see the parallels between the bombastic maximalism of Rustie‘s and Redino’s music (both signed to Numbers).
Redinho has always been been oddest of the oddballs on Numbers. His love of ’80s pop and synthesizer-based soundtracks was apparent from 2010’s Bare Blips and onward. 2011’s Edge Off single saw him reign in his obsession with talkbox vocal effects and craft a full-fledged pop track. However, for the last 18 months he’s been notably silent. His as of yet untitled album is due out this year. It will be interesting the direction he takes and given Spencer’s comments we should be in for a treat.
