Groovy funky dancey dancey! the best tracks are Wildfire and Pharaohs. I will look at getting other albums by Little Dragon as well as Sbtrkt.

Loved this moody album from day 1 and you hear new things every time you listen.
Great to see live too if you get the chance.

Exactly what it said on the tin. No scratches, blemishes or any other generally negative noun. Synth and bass sound sweet.

The music was a bit different from other works but really nice. I had to listen to it twice before really enjoying it

I just wanted to say that this is a very rewarding album and quite quite lovely. I listened to it on headphones initially and was immediately impressed at how expansive and warm it sounded. Even on a set of inexpensive ear phones this album sounds great! SBTRKT is well produced, sonically inventive, has infectious melodies and is highly recommended!

So Sbtrkt has been hot for the last two years or so, steadily building up a pleasing string of releases and quality remixes and his debut album has finally dropped. The hype has no doubt been helped by his insistence on hiding behind a mask, a rather annoying habit of late for attention seeking artists looking for a gimmick to help them rise above the oceans of wannabe artists, but at least with this boy he has some quality music to push and his intentions for doing so seem rather more genuine than most.

Anyway we're listening whilst typing and whacking up a very quick blog post and we have to say we are damned impressed! The production and arrangements are showing a pleasing maturity, influences abound from classic dance music and black music gone by all stitched together with super fresh beats, the collaborations are hot and a pleasing musicality pervades the whole affair with some great guest vocalists. It really is an accessible listen but with a depth which will keep you coming back after the summer months and initial hype have faded.

If you like Sbtrkt you'll probably like our radio show, seek and you shall find...

Recommended to me by my brother, SBTRKT offers up an awesome style of music. Rather hard to describe but well worth listening :-)

What a brilliant buy - had only heard two songs from this album when decided to buy it... a very good decision!!

For me, "electronica" albums which are not truly amazing always seem to tread a fine line between contented head nodding and background music at a conference/DIY store/lift.

With a couple of tracks already championed by 6 Music, I bought the Sbtrct album hoping for more of the former.

However, with the exception of a few tracks - Heatwave and Pharoahs included - this collection of tunes (vocal and instrumental) is disappointing, verging more on mediocre commercial R&B rather than inventive electronica.

I've listened to this a few times and it just feels all over the place, not knitting together as a good album should.

I want to like it more, but just end up feeling more and more underwhelmed after each listen.

NB - The two stars is mainly for Pharoahs, which makes me feel like I'm playing R-Type or Streets of Rage II on the Sega Megadrive all over again. Quality retro stuff.
