SBTRKT // Wildfire

11 Jul

This is nothing new. In fact, the SBTRKT LP – which is quite frankly brilliant and deserves a Mercury nomination – has been out for a few weeks now. This isn’t going to stop me posting the video for his latest single ‘Wildfire’, featuring the ubiquitous vocals of Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano. It is an effortlessly cool marriage of Nagano’s sultry voice and SBTRKT’s post-dubstep charms. This is head and shoulders above The xx’s stripped-back approach and the club-friendly style of Magnetic Man. Maybe it’s just me but the year’s biggest dubstep star could, unlike his genre colleagues, be left under the radar. Based on this quality tune, that would be a huge shame.
