Glaswegian label Numbers has been raising the bench mark for electronic music over the last ten years and more.

Lorded over by a team of Scottish DJs and producers including Jackmaster and Spencer, the imprint has been responsible for a series of game changing releases. Eclectic, electronic artists including Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and SOPHIE are among those to have stuck their heads above the parapet dressed in the Numbers colours, each one twisting the label's sound into ever weirder and wonderful shapes.

One man musical powerhouse Redinho has been a Numbers associate over the last few years with sporadic releases but has now upped the ante with the unveiling of his self -titled debut album.

Three years in the making, the 15 tracks show off the full gamut of Redinho’s production skills. Building on the raw vocoder madness of his Bare Blips and Edge Off EPs, he draws on a love for R&B, starry-eyed electronica and of course his talk box as inspiration for the record. The likes of Playing with Fire and Stay Together are just two of the highlights from an album which heralds the real splash down of an exciting new talent. The blend of polished production and intense amount of bubbling, eighties funk make Redinho’s sound one difficult to forget as it struts its way through your ears. Listen to the album below and look out for a Redinho tour in October.
