I’ve said repeatedly that SBTRKT’s self-titled 2011 release was a surprise for me. I’m not generally a fan of the looping electronica that the London producer puts out, but with the addition of Sampha’s vocals on the majority of the album, it clicked for me.
Nearly two weeks ago now SBTRKT released this stream of a track that was on a bonus album that went along with last year’s release. Despite its lack of vocals, it’s still a solid song. “Surely” loops its way directly into the listeners brain, fading in and out the entire time adding various layers throughout. I may never consider myself a fan of electronic music, regardless of the style of -step it is, but SBTRKT has made himself an exception.
