Barny Carter – Castel
You might remember we had a track – Park – by Bristolian Barny Carter a few weeks back. Here’s another from the Still Life EP, out at the end of the month. Like last time, Castel is a beautiful piece of downtempo electronica. The stately background washes of synth give it an introspective air. This is offset by the fractured beats and bubbling foreground. A really clever arrangement, mixing dance and hip hop. No doubt, an EP to look out for.
Blurb: Barny is a 22 year-old Bristolian multi-instrumentalist, producing a unique blend of electronic music; fusing home-made samples, cut up beats and ambient synths. A piano technician by day and musician by night (piano, guitar and drums), Barny truly has music running through his veins. He performed at the BBC Emerging Proms and regularly features on BBC 6 Music’s new music shows.
