Barry Can’t Swim is a bold, colourful, impetuous voice in electronic music. Across a flurry of vital, cutting edge tracks he’s been able to blend club sounds with organic aspects, an outer-national approach that fuses house with afrobeat productions and jazz. From his breakout EP ‘Amor Fati’ to debut album ‘When Will We Land?’ (2023) or the latest breakout club banger ‘Kimbara’, the producer has darted from style to style, all held together by that gleefully infectious approach.

Real name Joshua Mainnie, the Edinburgh-born artist was introduced to the piano at age nine. From keys, Mainnie moved to guitar and drums in his teens, playing in bands with mates and writing songs in his bedroom. As a student, club culture and electronic music entered his life. These days, Barry Can’t Swim is a globally recognised for his organic dance music, encompassing sounds and energy from all around the world. Mainnie’s jazzy piano solos have become iconic, and his unique style of flipping samples into modern club bangers is blazing quite the trail. Bringing the music to life, Barry Can’t Swim’s Live show makes him return to his roots as a musician, with drums and guitar on stage.

How to get to Paradiso

Paradiso is on the Weteringschans 6-8 in Amsterdam. That is very close to Leidseplein. From every part of the city there are trams heading towards Leidseplein. From there on out you can walk to Paradiso. Free and secured underground bike parking is available on the opposite side of Paradiso. Travelling by car is difficult, since there are only a few busy parking lots nearby.
