Rising London-based genre-bending artist Barny Fletcher unveils a new mixtape project today, entitled ‘JETPACK’.
Consisting of ten tracks (including infectious new single ‘Weakness’), the mixtape presents listeners with sounds that seamlessly fuse elements of alternative hip hop with R&B and pop. Speaking on the project, Fletcher says:
“‘JETPACK’ started out as a 3 track pack of songs. Over time I kept adding to it and eventually stopped myself at 10 before it turned into a double side album. During Covid, studio sessions weren’t really possible, so I found myself writing to beats from the internet, just how I used to when I first started writing. The process was refreshing actually.“
“I’ve worked with Platinum producers & Grammy winners, but nothing compares to writing a hot song to a beat which has been hiding in a corner of the infinite labyrinth, which is the internet. ‘JETPACK’ has energy and all the songs serve a purpose. Front to back. Listen and enjoy.”
With more than 73k monthly Spotify listeners and millions of career streams to date, Fletcher is a promising talent who has already garnered praise from noted tastemakers like i-D, Notion, NME. BBC Radio 1 and Earmilk amongst others.
