SBTRKT’s ace in the hole finally strikes out solo.
It’s mad to think that Sampha, who’s been percolating through our eardrums since appearing on a string of SBTRKT’s megahits since 2010, hasn’t even released an EP yet, but here we go – at the end of July, a six-track solo release titled Dual will appear on Young Turks.
As well as showcasing his instantly recognisable heartstring-tugger of a voice, the record is entirely produced and mixed by Sampha himself. Included on the EP is a new version of ‘Indecision’, a track that’s been floating round for a couple of years already, plus five new tracks. [via Juno Plus]
Earlier in the year Sampha collaborated with upstart producer Koreless to create a handful of tracks under the name Short Stories, and he also lent his vocals to a track on Drake’s forthcoming album, Nothing Was The Same.
Dual will be available through Young Turks on 29 July. Listen to ‘Indecision’ (in its original form) below.
