High Contrast — Night Gallery (6 Oct 2017)

Welsh Flag. 9Bach — Anián (29 April 2016) High Contrast — Night Gallery (6 Oct 2017)  High Contrast — Night Gallery (6 Oct 2017)★     14 tracks deep, the album will include recent tracks Remind Me (the highest viewed drum & bass track on UKF last year), Questions, Shotgun Mouthwash and brand new single The Beat Don’t Feel The Same. Incorporating live musicians, string sections and a lot of his own playing on keys, vocals and guitar, Night Gallery will run the electronic gauntlet like with explorations of new tempos, techniques and genres, all within High Contrast’s evocative, widescreen soulful signature.
★     Several years in the making, Night Gallery will headline another successful year for the Welsh artist who cracked open a significantly fizzy bottle of 2017 in January with the lead track in Trainspotting 2. It was followed by the vast and varied Questions EP (which comprised house productions and the best cover of Underworld’s Rez ever released) a sell~out live show at Brixton Electric and a summer of high profile DJ sets. ★     He’s also expected to announce a live tour this autumn, too. 2017 just keeps getting better and better for High Contrast fans.Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.Location: Cardiff, South Glamorgan, Wales

About High Contrast
★     Seemingly overnight, High Contrast became one of the most discussed drum‘n’bass producers in years. Not since the late ‘90s, when Goldie and Roni Size were recording full~length albums rather than strictly tracks, had there been so much hype thrown upon a drum ’n’bass producer’s shoulders. The man behind the moniker — Cardiff, Wales native Lincoln Barrett — remained humble despite the hype, taking it in stride. He was only 22 when he recorded True Colors, an ambitious double~disc debut album many within the music industry saw as having serious mainstream possibility. ★     Breakbeat Science felt so strongly about it that the New York label released True Colors despite Barrett being a relative newcomer to the stateside drum’n’bass scene. Released in 2004, sophomore album High Society featured the breezy single “Racing Green.” In 2007 he released Tough Guys Don’t Dance, which included a cover of Iron Butterfly’s “In~A~Gadda~Da~Vida” and guest vocals by Diane Charlemagne, Ian Shaw, J’nay, and Linda Gail Lewis. BBC Radio 1 named it their essential mix of 2007. In the years that followed, he remixed a number of tracks for the likes of Adele, Utah Saints, Japanese pop queen Ayumi Hamasaki, Coldplay, Kanye, and Eric Prydz, while also collaborating with Underworld and Axwell. He released a double album best~of, Confidential, which included his hits and high~profile remixes. It wasn’t until nearly five years after Tough Guys that he released his fourth album, The Agony & the Ecstasy (2009). In 2012, along with the guys in Underworld, he wrote the music for the opening ceremony of the London Summer Olympics. A digital~only EP — The Road Goes on Forever — was released later that year. He returned in 2013 with the “Spectrum Analyser” single and swiftly followed up with another in 2014 — “Who’s Loving You” (featuring Clare Maguire). 2016 saw the release of “How Love Begins,” a collaborative track with DJ Fresh featuring Dizzee Rascal. Contrast kept busy into 2017, kicking off the year with the Questions EP and putting out his sixth full~length, Night Gallery, that fall. The album marked a sonic departure from previous efforts, inspired by an assortment of genres from rave and rock to Northern soul and various ambient works. ~ Jason Birchmeier & Neil Z.

★     Lincoln Barrett pushes himself further out of his drum’n’bass comfort zone on this sixth High Contrast album, with varying results. Disconcerting glam call~to~arms Shotgun Mouthwash (which puts forward the uncontroversial proposition that the former is “a good substitute” for the latter) doesn’t quite succeed, but on the marvellous, audacious Tobacco Road he effectively invents drum’n’blues. Barrett’s latest shot for the charts, The Beat Don’t Feel the Same, is tepid Chic~ish house, yet the previous single, Questions, is a glorious success. The best songs are smart, bassy takes on EDM, blending muscular rhythms and winning melodies reminiscent of Barrett’s anthemic Adele remixes.  •••   https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/oct/08/high-contrast-night-gallery-review-lincoln-barrett
