Described as a Kaonashi mask wearing dub warrior, the king of bang SBTRKT Young Turks. The 2011 single is the first sound to be heard from his self-titled Debut LP
SBTRKT is a anonymous producer from England. His beats are what I would call a mix of hip hop and dubstep but with a great pop sensibility. Most of the vocals on this album are provided by Sampah, which range from good to great. But my favorite track on this album is the Single Wildfire featuring Yukimi Nagano of Swedish band Little Dragon.
Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon offers up some perfectly pitched vocals that stab and screech like a war cry from hell. Its quite a departure from the soulful elegance of Jessie Wares vocals on previous SBTRKT productions but its right stomping.
Promisingly, the London-based producer explains that the album will not simply be a collection of club tracks, rather it will be more of a whole project, more representative of my thoughts and ideas as an artist and each track was completed with the aim to be coherent together. Top banana.
This is where dubstep should be, and thankfully more artists are realizing it. Pretty solid album all the way through, it although it definitely has it's lows and highs. Songs to check out are: the first single; Wildfire along with my personal favorite Right thing to do. Other high points I think are Ready Set Loop and heatwave.

The reason the beat is so amazing is its uniqueness. The way the choppy short and filtered dub step wobbles are placed almost at random makes the listener not know what to expect, leading to the sense that the music is very compelling.
