Barney Artist’s ‘Lo-Fi Lockdown’ tape is something special.
It features a whole host of your favourite lo-fi, rap and hip-hop artists including Lex Amor, Ghostpoet, Manik MC and even production credits for FloFilz and Jordan Rakei amongst others. It even includes uplifting voice notes from some of Barney’s fans and followers.
There’s something beautifully uplifting about Barney Artist in general, but this tape in particular taps into your emotions. It’s refreshingly honest and current, with loads of references to lock down and the current global pandemic everyone is going through. Barney manages to harness COVID-19’s reality and turn it into something positive, doing so without this project sounding lame or gimmicky.
It really is bloody good and it’s only available for 72 hours, so don’t sleep on this. Please go and donate!
