We’re big fans of SBTRKT at Notion. His Step in Shadows EP from the backend of last year is one of those we keep near the stereo for when we want some guaranteed good music – it’s deep, pulsing, wobbly brilliance. Same goes for Drake – his Chicago juke mixes of retempo’d RnB themes are well worn on our speaker cones.
So here, combining our favourites, we have a Drake remix of SBTRKT’s Wildfire, and it’s pretty fucking fierce – strutting bass is blended expertly with creamy vocals and nonchalant snare for a single that begs to be played loud on your car stereo on a wamr day in traffic. The single’s out next Monday (23rd May), and the album’s out on June 27th; you can also find SBTRKT playing at festivals across the summer.
