"Sound like nothing you’ve ever heard” Time Out
“A phenomenon in the making” The Independent
“A strikingly original sound." The Times

Portico Quartet are four young musicians from South London who sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Living and playing together they describe their ethos as like an Indy band that plays post-jazz, and their unique sound has won them fans from Gilles Peterson to Radio 4 and Notion to BBC Music Magazine, and made them Time Out’s Jazz, Folk and World music album of the year.

"Red takes the noble art of turntablism to new heights… But best of all, he's innovative" - The Independent
"The shuffling breaks and jazzy atmosphere of tracks such as Simmer are expertly constructed" - Q Magazine

Red is a 27yr old Turntablist/Beatboxer and all round maestro from North London. His debut album release 'Fingerprints', released last April on Dealmaker Records was received with critical acclaim, attracting an enthused fan base across the globe. This following was taken to new heights when a video clip of a performance of skratch anthem 'Seen' went to no.1 featured video on Youtube, displaying his unique and cutting-edge method of tune creation. A jaw dropping performance of live layering and looping that is not to be missed. portico quartetRedFingerprints Knee Deep in the North SeaDealmaker Records
