khemet This album is truly amazing. I have not listened to DnB in so many years, not because of lost of interest but just got sidetracked by other experiences...I have forgotten how much I LOVE this type of vibrations....inspires to want to draw, cycle around the coast, do calisthenics, or simply just sit and think...this inspires me to live and just enjoy being able to do what I do. Thank for sharing your creativity.

pocket*galaxy A really soothing yet energizing album with ten nice liquid drum'n'bass tunes. Neat drums, driving basslines and a lot of pleasant melodies combine with enchanting voices. Last but not least a very interesting idea to present each tune in two versions - not only perfectly fitted for clubs but for home listening too. Instant classic! Favorite track: Carry Me Home (Club Mix).

about

Toulouse's master craftsman Redeyes delivers his fourth album “Selfportraits” on Amsterdam imprint The North Quarter. Known for his deeply detailed, emotive take on Drum & Bass, the French pioneer has a career spanning over 15 years. After three previous projects on The North Quarter – including 2018's opus “Broken Soul” - he now returns with the profound “Selfportraits”. Written almost exclusively during the Covid-19 crisis, this album captures a time spent in sheltered reflection. Drawing on both musical influences and personal beliefs this album is both deeply personal and touches on important issues of our times.

“The album was made during the lockdown and it all came together quickly. I was just spending time at home with my kids, splitting time between making music and home-schooling. It was just a time where I felt sheltered and comfortable with the music just flowing naturally,” Redeyes explains. “My music is not just dance music. I've always seen my art as something that transcends the dance-floor, and all the greatest artists in the world - from painters to singers to actors - have always been engaged in important fights. So why don't we do it, why are we not as engaged as our favourite artists from other genres are? Its time to make the difference, its time to be the change. This album is musically what reflects the core of my Drum & Bass sound. But this album is not just my own self-portrait - it's also the one of the guests. They speak the truth from their hearts out loud.”

This album is a journey through vintage soulful Drum & Bass, soundscapes and beats and sees Redeyes at his most inspired. Through ten carefully pieced together tracks, the listener is transported through a mosaic of influences and emotions. With featured artists such as [ K S R ], Lovescene, Juga-Naut, DRS and DJ Flight, an important narrative is added to the warm and serene instrumentation. Redeyes continues to uplift and inspire: a soft spoken, gentle soul with a clear vision of music.
