For those of us fortunate enough to be headed to the desert in exactly fifty days, if you’re not already excited then please allow me to light a fire inside of your dirty dancing little loins. Every ten days until the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, CA I will be bringing you tracks by five must-see artists. First up we have five tracks from the godfather of liquid d&b, Mr. Lincoln Barrett, now and forever known to you as High Contrast. If your girlfriend is begging you to see Kanye on Sunday night, and festival purveyors Goldenvoice happen to have scheduled Link at the same time, let me give you some advice: break up with her. *Here’s why…
• Underworld ft. High Contrast – Scribble [top 10 songs of 2010]
• Calvin Harris – Ready For The Weekend (High Contrast Remix)
*all tracks in 192kbps
Make sure you grab those all in their 320 glory off Beatport. If that doesn’t convince you (unless she’s an absolute 10, fellas, a TEN) then you’re a lost cause my friend. And ladies, if it’s your boyfriend begging you to stay so he can fist pump with his bros to Kanye’s ‘Flashing Lights,’ just tell him High Contrast has a remix of that in the arsenal as well.
While these tracks may be a bit dated it’s because he’s currently working on another full-length album for your listening pleasure. Having won awards for Best Producer, Best Album, and Best Liquid DJ at the National D&B Awards you can surely expect one hell of a show.
Dusted off his trusty old Essential Mix, which won the 2007 EM of the Year Award, so you could really get an idea of how magnificent this legend truly is.
