SBTRKT- "GLOSS"

New MusicchriscapComment

British producer SBTRKT--aka Aaron Jerome--dropped a new track on his Soundcloud page today, appropriately titled "GLOSS." It's a subdued, relatively calm piece with a subtle, midtempo beat and synth pads that are hard to describe as anything but "glossy." The occasionally stuttering beat recalls the club-ready sound of SBTRKT's excellent self-titled LP from last year, but on the whole this track is more toned down from anything on that record. SBTRKT fans may miss the guest vocals that popped up frequently on that record, but the instrumental "GLOSS" still has distinct SBTRKT personality. This piece seems more like a one-off experiment than a preview of anything new, but it's worth keeping tabs on his Soundcloud page for any more tracks that might drop in the near future.
