Mr Jukes & Barney Artist Bring Their Retro Futurism Sound To Chalk Brighton This November

Mr Jukes and Barney Artist have released their new collaborative album The Locket, which is followed by a rescheduled live date at Chalk Brighton, later in the year. 

The Locket is the coming together of two masters of their craft to create something hopeful in a time of unrest. 

It features ten tracks cut from sessions that span over eighteen months. 

It's sunshine-dappled, psych-tinged, hip-hop flavoured, leftfield pop. 

Beats, bars and a unique sort of retro futurism that zips from sepia-tinged to full technicolour almost as fast as Barney's flow. 


The pair have also recently shared their new single Check The Pulse featuring Kofi Stone.

During a period of prolonged inactivity, Jack Steadman scratched an itch to do something new. 

He went by the moniker of Mr Jukes and released an album, God First, in 2017. 

We say "by himself" but it was very much an open-door policy, resulting in a collaborative record that brought contributions by legends such as Charles Bradley, De La Soul, Horace Andy, Lianne La Havas, BJ The Chicago Kid and Lalah Hathaway. 

The project also features a contribution from Barney Artist, who Jack had quite simply stumbled upon on a Spotify playlist and never forgotten.

Barney's music takes the vibrance of jazz infused hip-hop but with a London feel. 

Growing up in Forest Gate, East London, Barney touches on conscious themes by way of lively, dynamic delivery to create something instantly likeable, like the artist. 

Jukes and Barney will be performing together at Chalk Brighton on 23rd November 2021. CLICK HERE for details.
