Premiere: Red D feat. Lefto – Angelic Drums At Dawn
The Belgian producer, who made up one half of FCL with San Soda, shares his long-awaited debut album via We Play House Recordings.
The house at the end of the street lay empty and derelict, it had been unloved for many years. He passed it every single day, and each time a haze of memories flooded back, much of his childhood was spent within those four walls. ‘How far he’d come since then’, he thought to himself – things had changed unfathomably. Hurdles had been crossed and barriers had been broken down; he’d shed his former skin and become something he never thought possible.
After three decades of making music, Belgian dance music veteran Red D is finally releasing his debut album. The 15-track record, Fantasize Then Realize, was spawned during lockdown while the producer had plenty of free time on his hands.
Compiled of three previously released tracks – taken from Red Basics 1&2 and 3&4 under his alias of the same name – and 12 brand spanking new tunes, the LP is the result of a rich career spent immersed in the worlds of house and techno. Also motivated and inspired by the musical relationships he’s made over the years, the record features collaborations and contributions from his ‘go to’ singer Lady Linn, his FCL and We Play House partner San Soda, Belgian mainstay Lefto, Detroit’s Reggie Dokes and close friend Classy Lassy.
