Drake – “Girls Love Beyoncé (SBTRKT Edit)”

Drake and the endlessly sharp and oblique London dance producer SBTRKT have come together before, when Drake dropped a verse on a remix of SBTRKT's track "Wildfire." And now SBTRKT has returned the favor, putting together a remix of "Girls Love Beyoncé," the soft and pillowy slow jam that Drake released earlier thi… More »

SBTRKT – “Trials Of The Past” Video (NSFW)

"Trials Of The Past" is one of the 2011 SBTRKT LP's standouts, which is saying something since it's one of the most filler-free electronic albums of the past few years. (Fun note: That album is almost two years old, and you are getting old!) Sampha's voice is in the full expression of its butterglory… More »

SBTRKT – “Gloss”

SBTRKT uploaded another free-streamer to Soundcloud this morning with "Gloss," an uplifting, onomatopoeically titled track with production as lustrous and light as its name suggests.

SBTRKT – “gamelena”

Just posted to SBTRKT's Soundcloud account, with the note: back in the studio. working towards eps/ album/ etc.... something new - no plan for it - just thought id share No idea what a "gamelena" is, and there isn't any real sonic connection between the cut and Indonesian gamelan music (which its spelling closely approximates).

SBTRKT – “Surely”

The masked post-dubstep dance producer SBTRKT, still riding high on last year's justly lauded self-titled album, recently posted a bonus track from the album called "Surely" on his Soundcloud. It's a characteristically catchy and wobbly instrumental jam with some cinematically woozy organ-smashing. Listen to it below. More »

SBTRKT – “Hold On (Sisi BakBak Remix)”

Later this month, SBTRKT's new single "Hold On" will drop digitally, and today he played a remix of that track on KEXP. Thanks to some on-air clues, Pitchfork hypothesizes that SiSi BakBak is an alias for a certain post-rocking, spastic dancing frontman. Stream the remix, as well as another cut from SBTRKT'… More »

SBTRKT – “Atomic Peace”

The masked London bass-pop producer SBTRKT had a massive 2011, but he'd been kicking around for a while before dropping his pretty-great self-titled album. The never-released 2009 track "Atomic Peace," which SBTRKT recently posted to his Soundcloud, never even saw release; its biggest moment until now was when it turned up in a mixMore »

SBTRKT – “Fried Eggs”

The masked London DJ and producer has spent the year giving us bubbly, effervescent post-dubstep dance anthems. And as luck would have it, the Japanese edition of his self-titled debut album includes at least one more, as a bonus track.
