High Contrast

Bio


The name High Contrast needs no introduction anymore; though when a young Lincoln Barrett signed on the dotted line back in 2000 he was a complete unknown. Signed on the strength of his mini-disc demos, the Welsh wonder has smashed his way through the d+b scene in no time at all.

His debut longplayer True Colours was released on Hospital to massive critical acclaim in June 2002, paving the way for a move onto the outernational DJ circuit and remixer of choice for so many labels inside and outside of the drum+bass community. It was the club sessions and mixing skills that dominated the year since the True Colours - with Lincoln making a name for himself as one of the hottest D&B DJs around.

In autumn 2004 he dropped the massive High Society LP; featuring the anthemic singles Twilights Last Gleaming and Racing Green. The album has already become the stuff of legend, with Knowledge Magazine voting it into there top 3 jungle albums of the last 10 years.

More recently after reaching Drum & Bass superstardom he has releaed mix albums for Fabric and Mixmag and seen his White Stripes remix all over Radio 1. Missy Elliot and Blaze have also come knocking for a Contrast remix and the Worlds dance floors have been blown apart by that Gold Digger booty. New talent Cyantific, Q-Project and Logistics have all raised the bar in 2006, so now we look forward to Hospital's original boy wonder strutting his new stuff. High Contrast returns with a brand new album, this Autumn on Hospital.
