Since the release of his last record “Imager” in 2015, a lot has changed for the London born James Mathé – known as Barbarossa. Most importantly, he’s become a father for the first time and made the hugely liberating move from London, the city that had for so long defined him and his sound, to Margate.

“Lier”, Mathé’s brand new album, is the perfect sonic story to accompany these big life changes and as a result, his most personal record to date. Across the 10 tracks, “Lier” is a hugely uplifting and cathartic record that takes you from the depths of his intricate and wonderful creative mind to the wider wonderful emotions that come with becoming a father.  Picking up where 2015’s “Imager” left off, “Lier” is further electronic wizardry from Barbarossa - one of the UK’s finest songwriting talents. This time, his vocal is at the forefront on some of the most accessible, pop songs he’s ever written.


BYFYN is South East London based producer and singer Ellie Isherwood. Gaining influence from artists such as Grimes, Fka Twigs and Animal Collective, she fuses Ambient Electronic with SynthPop to make an atmospheric, yet catchy sound. BYFYN's live band consists of Sam Hatchwell and Chris Martin.
