Edinburgh-born, London-based producer Barry Can’t Swim (real name Joshua Mainnie) returns to Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour with a new EP “More Content”, a four track record marking his first solo release for the label.
He also shares “Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore”, the second single from the EP, aptly named after a 1999 rave documentary by Mark Leckey — capturing Britain’s underground club scene in which Barry takes influence from a mixture of influential UK sounds, from Jungle through to Garage.
Speaking on the single, the youngstar states: “Living in London you hear so many different styles of music just walking about, out of cars or flats and shops, I wanted to channel that energy and appreciation of those genres.“
It follows on from the recently released opening single “God Is The Space Between Us (featuring Taite Imogen)” which garnered impressive radio support receiving a ‘First Play’ on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Future Sounds’ and selected as ‘Tune Of The Week’ by Clara Amfo.
“Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore” is out now, with More Content EP out 24th June on Technicolour.
