BARRY KRISHNA: Hood On My Shoulders (2016)

Hood On My Shoulders Barry KrishnaWho’s that striding down Bootleg Street chanting as he goes? Why it’s Barry Krishna spreading the yogic production practice of cheekhi vershyan (as revealed in his Hood On My Shoulders EP) and dedicating his thoughts and actions towards those mighty among the pantheon of hip-hop.

Dust To Bytes B.VisibleAnother one Dust To Bytes then as Austrian producer B.Visible succumbs to his itch to glitch and does what he does best. That’ll be by getting his hands on some old soul music, putting it through the shredder and reassembling it glitch-breaks style. It’s the first track off his new EP, Order, which features an array of glitchy electronica – that you’d mainly have trouble
