Not much is known about today’s featured artist, SBTRKT (pronounced subtract). He’s a producer based in London who’s started making a name for himself with remixes. What I have learned, however, is that he wears a mask, has a debut full length coming out at the end of the month, and is damn good. I discovered this song through Little Dragon who guests on the track. The song starts out with a simple beat, featuring Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano soulfully crooning over. The sample I chose starts shortly hereafter and breaks with a slightly jarring siren. Just as the siren fades out Yukimi comes wailing in. I love the surprise and power behind her entrance. The song continues on carrying the slower yet groovy manner. SBTRKT does a great job with the syncopation; playing with the beat, and keeping your ears guessing.
