Redeyes emerged as a DJ on the French drum & bass scene in 1999, quickly gaining a reputation for his eclectic selection and tight mixing skills. In 2001 he formed part of the Audiabrasive collective and soon embarked on a number of residences in Toulouse, supporting the likes of Fabio & Grooverider, Andy C, Bryan Gee, Dj Marky, DJ Friction, Bad Company, Nu:Tone, Commix, Break, Kemal, … More recently bookings have extended abroad, from the legendary Swerve sessions at the END nightclub, Movement @ Bar Rhumba, 1xtra BBC radio (guest to Ldouble connection show), to Tokyo, Bangkok, Pekin, Munich, Paris, Moscow, Auckland, Berlin, Budapest, Madrid, Ljubjana, Vienna, Wellington, Perth ….

Initially listening to hard rock as a kid, Redeye’s ears soon caught onto hip hop as it emanated from across the Atlantic and into France during the late 1980’s. Record digging culture then unlocked his ears to the wider gamut of Afro-American music – jazz, soul, RnB, dub and funk, while an open-ness for the rapidly developing landscape of electronic sounds drew Redeyes to the jungle sound.

It was only in 2003 that Redeyes’ passion for music urged him to take the step into production, and his rapid development is a testament to the effectiveness of tools such as AIM and readily available music production software, which have proved powerful catalysts to emerging talent these past few years.

Today Redeyes’ productions are played by Roni Size, DJ Marky, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Laurent Garnier, LTJ Bukem, Fabio, Grooverider, DJ Zinc, Goldie …, his tunes get regular support on radio (Radio One/ 1Xtra, Kool FM, Rinse FM…) and with releases on Metalheadz, Chronic, Bingo, Creative Source, Innerground, Brigand, Spearhead, remixes for the legendary Ninja Tune label (Bonobo « the keeper ») and the famous Tru Thoughts records (home of Alice Russell, Quantics, Maddslinky, ect)

His debut album was released on Spearhead records, with some mighty collaborations (Random Movement, Mutt, Matrix remix, Deeizm, ect)… His second album has been released recently on the french label Vandal Records (Part of me), forthcoming releases feature « good night brooklyn » that will be part of the « All cities » series on Vandal Ltd, and a solo Ep that should be out this spring also on Vandal Ltd and a collaboration with PennyGiles on Im:Ltd.
