East London emcee Barney Artist definitely lives up to his name. His relaxing compositions full of crisp percussion, shimmering melodies, and atmospheric samples never ceases to put me in a creative mood. Barney’s free 12-track BAEP is an incredibly mature project for the rising emcee. He stays consistent to his style with a quiet confidence that is mysterious and intriguing.
Barney continues his string of well produced videos in “Turn Your Head Around”. While most of his visuals feature stunning, yet simplistic scenes, Barney takes a more cinematic approach with his latest. The Gerald Boye directed video follows Barney and his friends in what appears as a coming of age, day in the life short film. The face shots and circular camera movements hint at deeper meaning, but for some reason, I haven’t discovered it. Despite my questions, all I know is that the Alfa Mist produced song with gorgeous, breathy vocals by Emmavie is more than enough. Twitter Website Youtube
