REDRED the musical sum of M3NSA Ansah & ELO’s experiences and evolution delivered through what they call African Electronic Dance Music.
M3NSA – the pioneering Ghanaian producer/songwriter and performer, known for his solo work, conquests with FOKN Bois, currently producing Nneka’s album and based in London.
ELO – Budapest’s seasoned DJ/music producer and instrumentalist is known for his work with Irie Maffia & Sena.
REDRED the musical sum of their experiences and evolution delivered through what they call African Electronic Dance Music. In 2012 ELO & FOKN Bois released “Dunaquest In Budapest” (Akwaaba Music) touring both Europe and Ghana. REDRED’s latest, also prepared in Budapest, is the natural continuation.
Woven with introspective lyrics, it’s a production masterclass fusing dance music influences from the artists’ European and African connections: It pushes the dial back to charged up 90s House, warbly Garage Basslines and Dreamy Synths. The vibrant first single Ghetto, featuring Ghana’s very own Sarkodie (112K views), is equally matched with an energetic video shot in Accra. RedRed put outs videos of equal high creativity to match their sound.
*REDRED A Ghanian popular dish incl black-eyed peas, red pepper and red palm oil. Served with fried plantane.
