Memphis Industries are delighted to announce the signing of Barbarossa, aka London based James Mathe, and the release of his new single 'The Load'. Having previously released music via the Fence Collective and toured as part of Jose Gonzales' live band, Barbarossa's new material sees Mathe combine dusky electronics with folk and soul to startling effect. By way of introduction, the load exemplifies just why Memphis Industries are so excited to be working with Barbarossa. Making a virtue of minimalism, the load is a sparse and delicate ballad, undercut by a distorted organ refrain, and constructed around Mathe's remarkable and tender vocals. All of which mark him out as an exciting emerging talent. Barbarossa's debut album for Memphis Industries is set to be released later in 2013.
