Barbarosa, the working project name for James Mathé, is one part electronic music and one part soul. James was a part of Jose Gonzales’ live touring band, the influence comes across on the vocal style for “The Load.” It’s part of a 7” out on Memphis Industries and there’s also a full-length Barbarosa album due out later this year. The song has a nice progression to it, building up slowly in intensity with each pass through the verse and chorus to arrive at a more full state with each round. Momentum. He’s touring all over Europe right now and will arrive in the US later this year.
