Lincoln Barrett, AKA High Contrast, unveiled his new single ‘The Beat Don’t Feel The Same‘.
Known for championing drum ‘n’ bass over the years and delivering some epic anthems such as ‘Remind Me’ and ‘How Love Begins’, the British DJ & Producer has taken a different route with his new single, delivering an infectious disco-house banger instead. The single premiered with Annie Mac as her Hottest Record and serves up some smooth Daft Punk-esque vibes with its groovy bass lines, slick guitar licks and infectious vocals from Boy Matthews.
Speaking with Annie Mac, High Contrast spoke about this sudden shift from drum ‘n’ bass.
“Anyone who knows my stuff over the years, it’s always been influenced by house, disco-house and the french house records (Daft Punk, Cassius), but I always did it at drum ‘n’ bass tempo. I wanted to pay proper homage to them and make a disco-house record.”
‘The Beat Don’t Feel The Same‘ is taken from his forthcoming 6th album Night Gallery, due October 6th. Judging by the direction of this single, it’s safe to safe High Contrast will be pushing boundaries sonically and delivering something fresh and exciting. In the meantime, be sure to catch High Contrast at SW4, Reading & Leeds and Creamfields before he heads out on tour this Autumn with a full live band.
