Redwood

He combines turntablism and beat-boxing in his sets to break from the normal monotony of constant plain beat matching that one would experience from most DJ's.

Redwood started playing on the decks in 1994 with deep house mixes perfecting beat mixing and later turned professional in London in 1999 then turned to tuntablism (scratching and beat-juggling) now is an all-round DJ, covering all aspects on the turntables and Beat-Boxing.

During the building of his DJ career, Redwood has been able to build his own unique trademark using various techniques to accomplish this and one that will definitely amaze an audience, no matter their background or preferred genre, is the simultaneous scratching and beat-boxing with a head piece microphone that can only be appreciated when watching this master working live.
