Sbtrkt has been doing pretty damn well this year placing high on many critics album of the year lists and gathering a huge fan base in the process. It’s rightly deserved too, with his self titled debut blending smooth basslines, beautiful synths and subtle percussion complimented by Jessie Ware, Little Dragon and Sampha on vocal duties. It was an album that really stood out in an already overcrowded year of releases as a very unique and modern sound, one that could only crop up in 2011.
Check out this slick unreleased mix of Machinedrum’s track u don’t survive. It’s a great reworking and brings enough of Sbtrkts style over while retaining the originals feel.
