Boomkat Product Review:
Man like SBTRKT is back on Young Turks with a spruce, steppin’ house groover bolstered with imploring vocals from Sampha. While its distant rudeboy bass is somewhere between Reese and vintage El-B, its dainty chords and cinematic strings makes us think of the Jazzanova/Compost set in techno mode. 2:24 it’s awful short, and an extended dub for the DJs would’ve been welcome, but fair play, it makes its point with impressive economy and will nice up the dance regardless. On the flip Machinedrum AKA Sepalcure whips up ‘Look At The Stars’ into a lithe, electro-inflected dubstepper. Its tough drums and clustered rave vamps are in line with recent Millie & Andrea while its bleepy, mounting arpeggios channel Rustie’s Bad Science and Jagz The Smack EPs. Pretty deadly all in all.
