Not to be confused with hip-hop artist Redman (who has become well known since Andrew picked his version of the name), Andrew's artist name stems from his ginger hair. Andrew's first production was the hardcore rave Mindwarp from March 1996. In 1997, Redmann started producing house and trance, though the Redmann sound we know today arguably started in 2000 with Zero Gravity, when Andrew combined trance with a funky house feel and chilled guitar sounds. Spurred on by the success of this track, Andrew further developed his music with So Sublime, adding an even funkier bass and a vocoder vocal, and this track became a favourite Toucan tune of 2001.
In 2002, Andrew tried a new style to produce Embrace, his first downtempo chillout track - although still with a very recognisable Redmann feel. Since then, Andrew has continued his vocoder dance vibe with You Make Me, and experimented with an old skool house sound for Are You Feeling It? and Plastic Explosive, a throwback to his early productions such as Scorpion.
Andrew has continued to develop his sound, and in 2007 experimented with laid back electronic and synthesized sounds on Born Into It, returning to this style again in 2008 with the trance driven God In The Detail E.P.
In 2009, Redmann returned to his instrumental, chilled style with Three In One, and showed how diverse he can be in 2010 by following this with one of his hardest tracks to date, Take On The Dancefloor. Tracks from God In The Detail were remixed in 2011 by Redmann himself and other Toucan artists.
Andrew lives in Pembrey in South Wales, and enjoys tinkering with his car and playing snooker in his spare time.

8th October 2013 New remixes of Zero Gravity
Our new release today features two brand new chillout remixes of Redmann’s Zero Gravity. Psychadelik Pedestrian’s remix features atmospheric pads and half-speed beats, while Redmann’s own remix keeps the original sounds and slows down the tempo, adding acoustic beats. The release also includes remastered versions of JMD’s trance remix and Redmann’s breakbeat mix. As usual, all of the remixes are released under a Creative Commons licence for you to download, share and use in your DJ mixes and video productions.

22nd September 2013 New Best Bytes 2 compilation on the way!
We’ve been working hard behind the scenes selecting and remastering 19 more Toucan tracks from the last decade, and next month the second in our Best Bytes compilation series will be available to download. Featuring tracks from Beat Doctor, Redmann, Risey and more, the compilation will showcase many of the different dance styles produced over the years at Toucan, from trance to chillout, and from EDM to funky house. And if you’re after something new, two brand new mixes of Redmann track Zero Gravity will feature on our next EP release due out at the start of October, including a new mix from Psychadelik Pedestrian and a chillout reworking from Redmann himself.
1st January 2013 Risey tops the charts in 2012
Happy new year! The figures are in and we can confirm that Risey topped our download chart for 2012 with his tune Memories of Thailand (the Beat Doctor remix). Risey‘s track was released back in 2007 and was our 4th most popular that year, but hasn’t featured in the chart since and has made a remarkable comeback after featuring on our Free Music Archive compilation and several high profile web videos over the last year. In second place, Psychadelik Pedestrian‘s Coral Reef has shot up the chart from being at number 20 in 2011 after also receiving exposure on YouTube. Psychadelik Pedestrian was also the most downloaded artist overall, with Redmann following in second place.
In 2012, we had a record 156,672 downloads, and this doesn’t include figures for all external websites. Thanks to everyone for listening to our music and help us to keep the vibe alive in 2013!
