High Contrast – a.k.a Lincoln Barrett – has just released ‘Remind Me’, his first single since signing to 3 Beat.
The epic track made its debut on Friday night as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1. It’s High Contrast’s first release from his new album which is set for release later in the year.
‘Remind Me’ is OUT NOW. Download or stream your copy here.
We’re very proud to have High Contrast on our roster. As an artist he’s a musical pioneer, a crate-digger who works beyond musical boundaries and genres. His need to constantly evolve has led him to work with artists such as Underworld to DJ Fresh and Dizzie Rascal. In 2013 Danny Boyd called on him to programme the music for the athletes opening parade at the 2012 London Olympics.
Lincoln is also one of the electronic music’s elite remixers, garnering acclaim for his reworks for Adele (‘Hometown Glory’ and ‘Hello’), Duke Dumont, White Stripes, Kanye West and London Grammar.
