Russian drum & bass producer Black Barrel is one of the most sought after producers to come through the ranks in recent months. After his discovery by Ant TC1, a tastemaker who’s founded the careers of many similarly talented artists, he was brought into the fold of Dispatch Recordings and has since dropped a plethora of heavy-hitting releases which have solidified his place within the genre. Following on from his ‘Ghostdive’ and ‘Labyrinth’ EPs on Dispatch Recordings, he returns with his debut ‘Last Frontier’ LP. The versatility and featuring artists given a platform throughout show Black Barrel’s progression; the atmospherics and rolling breaks of ‘Blue Sky’ are your first introduction and it’s a weighty one. Amongst the colossal fourteen track package, the vocal intricacies of Steo on ‘Coincidence’, alongside the LP’s title-track ‘Last Frontier’ continue the high-reaching standards.
Indeed, the album is very diverse material. For me, this album is the story of immersing yourself, to find answers to internal questions. I really like the concept, and realization; I’m very proud of this work. You never get a second chance to make a debut albu. hat were the most important things Last Frontier had to do from your perspective? Yes, the work is done, and I believe that I made it very worthy for the debut album. The most important thing for me is to follow the concept and consistency. I think that a good and abstract idea is a good ground for implementing such projects. Well, it’s worth noting that since I am now an exclusive artist on Dispatch, all of the above will be released on this label.
