The debut album from SBTRKT on Young Turks is here, and it's a strong set, managing to infuse the sounds of London's dance underground with a poppier essence. It's a vocal-heavy affair, with mic duties largely handled by formidable night bus crooner Sampha, while the rhythms are rooted in swinging, post-dubstep house, albeit with nods to various staging-posts in British soundystem culture - the masked producer's affection for both ragga-jungle and El-B style dark garage comes to the fore in the romping sub-bass of 'Right Thing To Do', while the excellent, almost gospel-flavoured 'Sanctuary' teams shuffling broken beat with saw-toothed electro. The undisputed highlight of the LP is 'Pharaohs' a spry, sassy bit of house that's just custom-made for deployment in rush hour traffic this summer, but previous single 'Living Like I Do', with its Reese bass mannerisms and vocals from Sampha at his imploring/deploring best, gives it a run for its money.
