“Wildfire” – SBTRKT feat. Little Dragon

June 14, 2011 Leave a comment

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.

Get a look at the mask and check out the full single here!
