DJ Reds AKA Bobreds
My musical journey started way back in the 70’s via my parents. Mum used to play reggae music in the house (Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Bob Marley & the Wailers, Burning Spear) and when my brother (MaddFly) and I used to link our father I would hear soul music from him. Our father is a drummer and a singer/songwriter himself so it’s fair to say it was inevitable that I would follow the same path.
I have always had music around me and started buying soul music in the early 1980’s. By my mid teens I was playing in a sound “Primetime” from NW London doing house parties and it was around this time I started rapping, recording and did a few performances. By the very early 90’s I started singing/songwriting and co-founded a group called “Keynote”.
By now, I had crafted my skills in songwriting, rapping, singing and recording, even had my music played on KissFM and ChoiceFM both as a rapper and a singer. However, due to family commitments I decided to leave this and focus on being a father.
Fast forward to about 5 years ago my brother (MaddFly) decided to start the internet radio venture. He tried on several occasions to get me involved but I was focused on my working career, until one weekend he fooled me and got me to do a show (06/01/19) which I totally loved!!
He always had faith in my abilities and knew that once I started playing again, I’d fall in love with music like before but also be a good addition to Uniquevibez.
So here we are, music flowing through my soul and to you the listener, doing what I was destined to do which is to be enjoying playing and presenting a musical escape/sanctuary.
