Anish Kumar & Barry Can’t Swim – Blackpool Boulevard

This one’s for the dance floor. Last summer, Anish Kumar and Barry Can’t Swim were sending ideas, early demos and voice notes back and forth, which resulted in this banger. Blackpool Boulevard is a sample-heavy, funky disco tune with a great piano part and a Communards-like beat.

Kumar is not only a veterinary medicine student, but also a promising producer, fond of samples, Motown and Northern Soul. Meanwhile, Barry Can’t Swim is a rising artist with a knack for putting a summertime spin on jazz-inflected house. When you listen to their great collab, you can hear both their influences in it.

Blackpool Boulevard is an instrumental for now, but I can imagine someone putting vocals to it. That would be interesting, but not strictly necessary. It’s great in its current form as well.
