If you’re a SBTRKT die-hard, you may think that the instrumental sounds vaguely familiar – and you wouldn’t be wrong. This track entitled “Shut Down Shop” uses the backing previously seen in “Runaway“, which was premiered in his Radio 1 Essential Mix last year. That original was obliterated from the internet recently, presumably because this even better version was forthcoming. I’ve said my bit before on all of SBTRKT’s productions, but the electronic orchestration is somewhat magical here, and that’s aided by the stunning vocal of rising star Jessie Ware. Her performance here is awe-inspiring, and (on a separate note) her own video for “Running” seems to be gaining a lot of deserved attention – check that out HERE.
Check out this cut that I took from the show below – and show your love to SBTRKT by grabbing his sensational debut album HERE.
UPDATE: For reasons a little bit beyond my control, the rip I did has been taken down… sorry about that. But you can listen to the full Young Turks show, which includes some more brand new SBTRKT in the form of “Cold Stream”. Jump to 38 minutes to hear the man himself.
