About this album

“Red takes the noble art of turntablism to new heights… But best of all, he’s innovative without being too precious about it.” - The Independent Review

“The shuffling breaks and jazzy atmosphere of tracks such as Simmer are expertly constructed” - Q Magazine

“First rate Hip Hop Jams on this debut from turntable whizz kid Red, which is guaranteed to see him elevate to the next level” - Knowledge magazine

“Red is rewriting the rule book for performing hip hop live” - London Tour Dates

“Often these albums come down to the power of the mantra and the skill of crate digging twinned with record selection. Red possesses all of these and a whole lot more” - Album of the month - Echoes Magazine

Red’s debut album, Fingerprints, is a masterpiece in instrumental hip hop production. Not only does the album advance the jazz styles of ATCQ, Gangstarr & Pete Rock, it solidifies Red as one of scratch music’s most recent innovative exponents – indeed nearly half of the tracks on the album are made entirely from scratching. From the drums to the melodies, each track is produced purely from turntable manipulation. These tracks, Samba Scratch, All’s Fair, Clock Watching, and Snow explore moods and techniques seldom heard in the scratch world, and demonstrate Red’s pioneering spirit.
