"Music progresses."


A new breed of music

Having become bored of the same, almost mainstream dubstep and electronic genres, I decided to take a gamble and buy SBTRKT's album after hearing a late night discussion regarding the album on the radio.
I definitely don't regret it!
The unique producer begins with ""Heatwave"", a melancholy blend of vocal tones, experimental drum patterns and eerie synths. This is followed by ""Hold On"" where Sampha's soothing vocals, much akin to James Blake's, lull the listener into a state of relaxation, before the energetic ""Wildfire"" attacks the senses, with Little Dragon's vocals again proving a joy to behold aided by artistic 'splodges' of wobbly dub.
The genre of alternative/experimental needed something fresh. SBTRKT denotes a balance between uptempo and downtempo music, making the whole album totally playable in many situations (bar a funeral.)
Additionally, previous to listening to the album, I had struggled to find many artists or producers who could so seamlessly combine real (in my opinion) musical beats with natural voices. Yet SBTRKT doesn't segregate the two; they are one.
I think the album as a whole is refreshing, and worthy of worldwide recognition in order for music to progress, having already received interest from Drake.
Still, I feel there is something missing from it, but perhaps that is just me.
So close to perfection, SBTRKT, so close. Still, I would buy the album again - he deserves every penny.
