Wonderfully unique ambi-folk weirdness
Bleeding Heart Narrative

Question: what do hip hop pioneer Rakim, folk/blues legend Neil Young, quintessentially Yorkshire playwright Alan Bennett, the less-mad-one-from-the-Eurythmics Annie Lennox, and The Bamboo Ensemble of Sangkar Agung Village have in common?

Answer: obviously, they all feature on our latest exclusive DJ mix – wonderfully unique ambi-folk weirdness from multi-instrumentalist Bleeding Heart Narrative.

Otherwise known as Oli Barrett, BHN’s music combines lush vintage sounds with avant drone tones and thick layers of instrumentation – at times recalling the likes of Animal Collective and Kipi Kaninus – resulting in a truly enticing beast of a sound.

Having toured with the likes of the wonderful Thee Silver Mt. Zion (whose name has probably changed by the time you read this), Bleeding Heart Narrative pauses for a moment to proffer some sounds for Clash. Flowing between soundscapes, storytelling, space-cadet psychedelia and euphoric hip hop – BHN’s mix is weird as you like, and all the more fascinating for it. Glorious stuff.
