I saw a red light in the dark...


... well, I must admit that Redlight found me. Dealing recently with Redlight (here, with his Vampire Weekend remix), I just had to admit I didn't even know how to spell right is Dj name. But Web 2.0 is magic, Tim Nelson saw my article and thought I need help. Actually I've found much more than help, I've found former TimTheDj from Boston, NY, who use to be DJing for the last two years and just felt bored of adding such a few changes to the music he used in his DJ sets.
He changed is name to Redlight and started producing with one goal : transform a song in order to dance to it much more than you can dance on the original. Look, you thought Fragile was a too sweet Daft Punk release not allowing you to shake your booty, I'm sure. That was before you clicked play just below. OK it's not really a remix but a cover, but isn't it exactly the kind of tune we were expecting from Daft Punk when we've been told they'll be back for Tron 2.0's score?
Check this excellent remix for Ladyhawke - Delirium, then this Jeffer one a little bit different from the original, and IF you're not convinced yet with Tim's talent, just listen to the Vampire Weekend's remix one more time.
Now, are your ears wide open? It's time for you to listen a last one, which is his first personal production. This is called Jihad and seriously, for a first work, it doesn't deserve any lapidating at all!
Keep composing Tim, the road which leads to success is in front of you. You know, it's all about 2.0.








Daft Punk - Fragile (Redlight Cover)








Ladyhawke - Delirium (Redlight Remix)








Boys Noize - Jeffer (Redlight 'I need more cowbell' Remix)








Redlight - Jihad

...bon, je dois admettre que c'est plutôt Redlight qui m'a trouvé. Je parlais récemment de lui (ici, avec son remix de Vampire Weekend), mais je dois admettre que je ne savais même pas écrire son nom comme il faut. Mais le Web 2.0 est à ce point magique que Tim Nelson a vu mon article et s'est dit que j'avais besoin d'aire. Au bout du compte j'ai trouvé beaucoup plus que de l'aide, j'ai trouvé celui qu'on appelait TimTheDj de Boston dans l'état de New York, qui a passé les 2 précédents années de sa vie à faire le DJ et qui a fini par en avoir marre de si peu ressentir l'expression de ses talents artistiques dans ses sets.
Il a donc changé de nom pour devenir Redlight et a commencé à produire avec un but précis : rendre une chanson plus entrainante que ce qu'elle n'est à l'origine. Exemple : vous pensez sans doute que
Fragile de Daft Punk est beaucoup trop calme et 'down tempo' pour danser. Ça c'était avant que vous cliquiez sur Play tout là haut. OK ce n'est pas vraiment un remix mais plutôt une ré-interprétation assez libre, mais n'est-ce pas exactement le genre de son que vous attendiez du duo casqué en apprenant qu'ils allaient s'occuper de la bande sonore de Tron 2.0 ?
Ecoutez donc cet excellent remix de Ladyhawke, puis celui de Jeffer pas très différent de l'original de Boys Noize, et SI vous n'êtes pas encore convaincu que Tim a du talent, ré-ecoutez donc ce remix de Vampire Weekend.
C'est bon vos oreilles sont grandes ouvertes et réceptives à son style? Il est donc temps pour vous d'en écouter une dernière, qui se trouve être sa première production perso. Ça s'appelle
Jihad et sérieusement, pour un premier essai avouez que ça ne mérite pas la lapidation sur la place publique!
Continue dans cette voie Tim, la route qui mène au succès est droit devant toi. Après tout, tout est question de 2.0.
