Barclay Crenshaw Drops Debut Mixtape Featuring Cool Kids, A Tribe Called Quest, MF Doom, and More


In the wee hours of an October morning deep in a Southern California mountain valley, a bespectacled sonic explorer took to the stage in front of several thousand people. Flitting between hip-hop, broken beats, acid-trip bass and jungle influences, Barclay Crenshaw introduced fans to the sonic palette that has come to inspire his forthcoming self-titled album.

Today Crenshaw shares his debut mixtape, inspired by themes of otherworldly exploration and retro-futurism. It includes previews of forthcoming album cuts , special VIP versions, world premieres and unreleased remixes – including a feature with the recently-reunited Cool Kids, a debut VIP remix of WhatSoNot and more.

Barclay Crenshaw is set to embark on his 11-date debut album tour, which will be kicking off at LA’s Low End Theory. Crenshaw will be making stops at Detroit’s Movement Fest, Seattle, New York, San Francisco, and more.
