SBTRKT and Sampha Meet Again on Lush ‘Temporary View’
Also: hear Dog Bite's moody edit of Sampha's "Hesitant Oaf"
The ever-elusive SBTRKT has shared a new song. “Temporary View” offers a lush pileup of glitchy effects, snapping percussion, pensive keys, thick textures, and — perhaps best of all — the unmistakeable voice of Sampha, known friend to Drake, Solange, and Jessie Ware. Earlier this year, the once-anonymous English producer released his Transitions EP but this latest share is likely the first taste of the next proper SBTRKT album. Hear it below, and as a bonus, check out Atlanta outfit Dog Bite’s unofficial edit of Sampha’s “Hesitant Oaf.”
As band boss Phil Jones writes, “I think Sampha has one of the best voices I have ever heard, I listened to his EP Dual and kinda fell in love with how elegant and powerful his song writing is. ‘Hesitant Oaf’ kinda stood out for me because as soon as I heard it I knew I wanted to make it into a longer experience. It was way too perfect. This was also me sort of fulfilling my little dream of working with him ha.”
