CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

SERIOUSLY, this record is fucking good, flawless, almost, and hard to stop listening to.

Pitchfork

SBTRKT is ultimately a colorful and highly enjoyable future-pop record, an extension of bass culture but not indebted to it.

In the space of just over half an hour it has been possible to experience a full gamut of feelings, our sympathies firmly siding with our nameless host.

Consequence of Sound

It maintains an ever-so-perfect pace throughout, fraught with big beats, catchy choruses, and smooth textures, making it one of this year’s finest debuts by far.

No Ripcord

Although there’s nothing spectacular or innovative here, it has to be difficult to simultaneously have a foot in a variety of styles while constructing something that’s this easy to listen to.

A highly enjoyable debut record that established SBTRKT’s talent and knack for laying down a sophisticated beat while bringing on the perfect vocalists (Sampha, Little Dragon) to round out the album into a near seamless finish.

He and Sampha make this electronic-soul record sound like heaven on hearth. Speechless, Loved it!

Intelligent beats with primitive colours and a big, big heart.

Very very enjoyable electronic record.
It’s very fun, conceptual, cohesive.
Sampha it’s like a perfect complement to the album, I really don’t know what else I should say, it’s a fantastic record.
