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.
