[BLACKOUT / EATBRAIN / NEOSIGNAL / INVISIBLE]
REDPILL is the Drum & Bass alias of Rémi Jorquera, a name under which he balances a myriad set of influences both past and present in the creation of high tech Drum & Bass that folds both aggressive bassweight & enrapturing melodies into its sonic spectrum.
Drawing his earliest influences from bands such as Rage Against the Machine and his musical knowledge as a guitar and bass player, REDPILL began producing Drum & Bass after first hearing the music of now genre defining artists including Pendulum, Black Sun Empire, & Noisia. Following his time as a part of the Black Owlz duo under which his productions saw initial success, Rémi launched his REDPILL solo alias in 2016 and has since seen a number of releases across some of the largest labels in Drum & Bass including Blackout, Eatbrain, & the since closed Invisible.
Not content even with such explosive early success, REDPILL focused inwards throughout 2019 in order to develop a truly signature sound, slowing his output to the release of two EP’s on Blackout as he synthesized its sonic being behind the scenes. The end result, which has been described by peers and fans alike as being at once “both clean and dirty”, coats heavy bassweight and syncopated rhythms with a high tech sheen borne of deftly crafted high ends and often computerized vocal segments.
Now entering into the fifth year of the REDPILL project, Rémi looks to bring this sound into collaboration with other artists in the Drum & Bass scene, merging their unique sounds for the creation of further novel audio sequences. Though he feels he has found a fitting home for his sonic palette on Blackout, REDPILL hopes to share further releases on new labels & return to old haunts such as Eatbrain as he continues to find ways to push his sound in new directions. Entering into 2020 with plans for expanded tour stops and multiple new releases, now more than ever is the time to take an auditory dose of REDPILL.
“While Redpill can push out music at a rate that leaves fans and press as whiplashed as his beats, what’s really astonishing is the quality in every track. From sound design to creativity and even down to some really beautiful melodies, his new EP on Blackout, Flesh & Blood, is yet another example of how this French juggernaut has not only hit his stride but continues to impress with no signs of slowing down.” – Bassrush
“With releases on Blackout, Eatbrain, Invisible (…). Anyone who follows the harder, heavier end of drum & bass in any detail will already know who the hell Redpill is.” – UKF
