Lincoln Barrett reveals how working with Underworld inspired him to spread his wings beyond D&B
Like many people in their late 30s, Lincoln Barrett is in a thoughtful mood right now. Given that he's spent the past 16 years travelling the globe as one of drum & bass's leading figures, it's perhaps understandable that he's feeling a little reflective.
The new album in question is the first High Contrast full-length in five years, the recently released Night Gallery. It is, as many reviews have pointed out, not your average High Contrast album. In fact, while it naturally includes a sweep of tracks in his usual 'disco drum & bass' style, it actually boasts far more songs that look to other styles and sounds for inspiration. Many of these were inspired not by contemporary sounds, but rather the music he first fell in love with as a teenager.
